The Doors Experience: L.A. Woman Live- From 2010

My main issues with The Doors Experience as a cover band for Jim Morrison and The Doors, is that they come off as more as a punk band as far as appearance than a blues rock band. Which is what The Doors were.

The Doors weren't a classic rock band and certainly not a hard rock band, but a blues rock band that mixed in rock & roll with blues and even rhythm and blues. They were similar to Elvis Presley who came before them and Eric Clapton who came out about the same time in the late 1960s as The Doors.

Also, the Jim Morrison cover is a big tall man. Looks like an NFL quarterback or even linebacker. Jim Morrison was built more like an NFL kicker, at least a stereotypical NFL kicker. Average height (at best) and slender.

But The Doors experience does a really good job as far as sound and the music and sound like The Doors. The Jim Morrison has The Lizard King's wardrobe and act down. The tight black leather jeans, the big concho belt, the cowboy boots, a lot of black shirts. So in this sense The Doors Experience does a very good job as The Doors.
