Its a tribute to the power of popular culture that The Doors have managed to survive the 60s and embed themselves into the psyche of the 70s, the 80s, the 90s and the 21st century.
Most of the bands from that day live on the fringe of popular culture. many famous names never managed to make the leap The Doors did. I find it remarkable considering in my 70s Stockton world I never knew anyone who liked The Doors. Now they are everywhere. I was wandering round ASDA a few days ago and saw a young kid 12/14 with a seriously cool Doors T Shirt on. Obviously I did not say anything to him as there is an etiquette about such things and an old man coming up to a kid and chatting about music in a supermarket could be construed in a very different way than would be intended. But it supports my point that The Doors have embedded themselves into generation after generation.
