This sounds awesome! I had the pleasure of seeing Robby Kreiger’s Jam Kitchen play in Orlando last month and can say without a doubt that Robby is still rockin’ it well after all these years.

Never been a huge Doors fan. But, The Mule could play Ingelbert Humperdinks greatest hits and it would still rock. Just sayin…

I wouldn’t mind sticking to Katy Perry… as long as she doesn’t sing… and calling the Doors overrated just makes you look foolish… I’m no “Doors fan” but come on…

The Doors rule. They had it all: songcraft, great chops by all players, charismatic madman baritone front man, and a sound all of their own. What’s not to love?

You can like, or dislike whoever you want, but overrated?!! If anything, The Doors are underrated. Have you actually listened to any of their albums Fluff? Or is “Light My Fire” your only frame of reference? The Doors’ music is epic at times. Most people don’t understand how great of musicians Ray and Robbie were. Add that to Jim’s poetry and the energy of their live shows and you have one of the greatest rock bands of all time. Overrated my ass.
