Musical Interlude: L. A. Woman (1990)

Perhaps the closest anyone could come to replicating the vocal style of the late Doors frontman, Jim Morrison, could be Billy Idol.

In 1990, Idol covered the Doors' "L. A. Woman" on his CD, "Charmed Life". The video was shot after Idol had been in a motorcycle accident, which explains the cane he's using. While Morrison slipped in a reference to "Mr. Mojo Risin", Idol left that out of his version.
