I agree. I like a bit of The Doors now and then - some great songs in their time. And if I was put off by bands or artists because a member might be a twat then I don't think I'd be left with much.

Think i've been misunderstood....I wasn't put off because he's a twat....I was put off by Doors overkill.....and then I discovered he was a twat....

He did make, or at least participate in, some great records (in addditioon to the first two albums, I'd say "Morrison Hotel and "L.A Woman"), although I think the rest of the band (and Robbie Krieger in particular) probably shaped ther music much more than they're given credit for. I just wouldn't have wanted to have been in a band with him!

I think that Oliver Stone move damaged their cred quite a bit - since then it's become more hip to slate them than to like them. I don't think that half-assed re-union with Ian Astbury helped either.
