True Sailing is Dead

I saw a review of recent show by the Doors in the new Rolling Stone. My initially shock and soon gave way to righteous contempt after I saw the ticket prices for their upcoming show at the Universal Amphitheater in Hell A are $40-$125. I would only go see these guys if they were performing instrumental versions of their songs for ten bucks in a club. Would you want to see Crazy Horse playing Neil Young songs with Eddie Vedder singing? Of course not. Would you go see Crazy Horse play new original songs in a club? I would. Heck they wouldn't even have to be originals, I'd go see them play blues standards. Why can't the Doors do something like that?
