Reply Subj: How many bands remind you of the Doors?

I was thinking the other day about two bands whose music clearly was heavily influenced by the Doors:

Nick Cave
Bauhaus

Are there any other bands whose music reminds you of the Doors? Whose music do you like better - the Original Gangster's or the new young turk's?



I was reminded of the Doors, sort of, but not exactly. What I was really reminded of was Jim Morrison's singing. Respondents have rightly reacted to what I actually said - "remind you of the Doors" - and so they focused not only on Jim Morrison's singing but on the entire composition, all of the instruments, the style of music - and of course, when you focus on all of that, you don't hear the similarity that I was aiming at.

Danzig's singing is so similar to Jim Morrison's that I actually - whimsically - checked to see when he was born, and compared it to when Morrison died, to see if maybe Danzig might be Morrison reincarnated! (The answer is no, by the way. Danzig was born in 1955.)

But certainly if you listen to the entire composition of Danzig's songs, all of the instruments, the style of music, you wouldn't be fooled into thinking it was the Doors.
