Jonathan Richman of the 21st Century

I was listening to "Astral Plane" by the Modern Lovers just a while ago, and a lightbulb went off over my head: Jonathan Richman should be the frontman of the Doors of the 21st Century (or whatever their new name is). The would be a good backup band for his stuff too, so they could play a set of Modern Lovers and a set of the Doors.

Once again, very little is going on in the Advanced world. Sorry!

I saw those Doors and it was a great show since I wasn't alive when Jim was alive and Ian Astbury was great, but I think you may be right! I had the same experience, not only did it sound like a "new" Doors, but I thought Ray Manzarek himself was tickling the keys! I had to check my mp3 player just to make sure I wasn't playing some obscure Doors song I somehow didn't know.
