    Groups that Disappeared

    I always thought that The Animals would make a resurgent comeback much like the Doors did. I felt that their music should be a staple on classic rock stations, but it never happened.  The went through a few stages where their music grew leaps and bounds.  House of the Rising Sun - We Got To Get Out Of This Place - Sky Pilot - White Houses.  If you follow their growth in just this thread it is amazing. (and these are but a few examples of what they were capable of) What I can't understand is why the fascination with the Doors (who i do enjoy quite a bit) and yet nothing for the Animals

    It never ceases to amaze (or depress) me what they play on 'classic rock radio'.  They obviously work on some kind of idiotic corporate-approved, market-tested formula.  

    My guess is because I've listened to other cities' classic rock radio, and it sounds pretty much the same all over the country - with slight differences based upon regional preferences (i.e., here we get more Cars, J. Geils, Boston, etc.).  California was better; Florida was not.

    I agree. The Animals had some great stuff. They made a brief comeback, as I recall, in the early 1980s but faded. Maybe had Eric Burden died tragically at the end of the 1960s, they would be remembered more.

    I do understand the fascination with the Doors.

    I also enjoyed the Animals.

    I am not sure what "disappeared." The music of the Animals lives today as does the music of every other band that ever existed.

    What is "disappearing" in our society is common sense, decency and really good music, T.V. and movies. 

    I think the Animals sound is kind of a "60's sound" while I believe the Doors music was about 20 years ahead of it's time. If you listen to alot of the Alternative, Grunge and Gothic music from the late 80's-early 90's you can hear the influence of the Doors in a lot of it.

    To be fair: 1 pompous drunk + 3 talented, versatile musicians

    If you can, listen to some of the Doors' instrumental/backing tracks.  The group dynamic was amazing, like a great jazz trio.  They could have carried on with another singer quite easily, IMO.

    As for Jim Morrison, his lyrics were silly and pretentious, but his delivery was geniune because he really believed that s**t he was singing.  In rock music, sometimes it's all in the delivery, wouldn't you say?

    Just to get even with you, I am going to go home and listen to U2 and the Doors all night.

    You should try to find the disc where U2 sings door covers for 2 hours
