Jim Morrison vs. James Morrison

THEN

JIM MORRISON
Tousle-haired, poetry-spouting, Doors-fronting lizard king. Died in bath.

JOHN McLAUGHLIN
Legendary axman who founded the noodle-heavy Mahavishnu Orchestra. Long popular among the wake-and-bake set.

ELP
Willfully bombastic ’70s prog trio (with Keith Emerson), who wrote obtuse songs like ”The Hut of Baba Yaga.”

NOW

JAMES MORRISON
Tousle-haired, love-song-spouting pop-funkateer. Probably enjoys baths.

JON McLAUGHLIN
Up-and-coming ivory tickler who’s fond of arpeggio-filled piano pop. Already a favorite with the Prius and Nalgene crowd.

El-P
Sonically challenging underground rapper, who writes obtuse songs like the just-released ”Tasmanian Pain Coaster.”
