Marilyn Manson

Possessed by Jim Morrison

... At Live Doors Concert

You gotta hear this -- Marilyn Manson performed LIVE with the freaking DOORS this weekend for the Sunset Strip Music Festival in L.A. ... and he's a dead ringer for Jim Morrison.

Manson took the stage for the special performance Saturday night -- singing several Doors songs with the legendary rock band ... including "People Are Strange," "Love Me Two Times," and "5 to 1" ... and we gotta say, he crushed it.

Morrison died in 1971. Manson was just 2 years old. Pretty crazy.

Yeah, if you mean "Crushed It" by being subjected to dead goth weight of bloated sluggish misery and zero energy. When Manson bows to Manzarek, Ray nearly lurches back. I admired the Doors of yester year and Marilyn when he was a spitting waify freak. Now, it's a rather sad means to keep appearances way past the expiry date. C'mon, guys. Does it always have to hold candle to flame? True talent is progressive not regressive. Let's respect the dead and move on...if you dare. I know you've got it in ya.

Not sure what your definition of "nailed it" is, but this ain't it!

Um, that sounds nothing like Morrison except for the fact that it's a male voice.

He crushed it? You must be joking. That was the worst rendition of Jim ever! TMZ already has terrible cred when it comes to picking hot women. You can add music to that list now. Geeze.

"Crushed it"? Are you high? Or is whoever posted this too young to have been alive when the Doors were great? If so, go back and listen to the song, or watch the movie When You're Strange. Sheesh, guys.

Crushed it? Come on. You've got to be kidding. Jimmy Fallon did a better Jim Morrison singing children's television Reading Rainbow. I ain't kidding.

I don't get it. It didn't sound good to me. Jim had a very nice resonant voice whereas Marilyn Manson is more of a shock rocker conceptual artist than someone who makes nice things to listen to. It is almost antimusic as in antichrist what Manson puts out.


It sounds like all of his other singing which gets as annoying as listening to dissonant screaches. I really didn't get anythihg much out of this performance other than the background music.
