Jim Morrison Predicted Electronic Dance Music
The Door's frontman Jim Morrison predicted the future of music in a 1969 interview.
"…it might rely heavily on electronics, tapes. I can kind of envision one person with a lot of machines, tapes and electronics set up singing or speaking and using machines."
Dubstep and electronic music in general, although having been around for a handful of years now, is becoming more popular in today's music. You certainly didn't have dubstep artists like Skrillex around in the 60's.
Morrison seems to be years ahead of his time with this call. It lends some validity to the theory that Jim was a demigod to which not even the laws of physics and time could suppress him. Of course it could have just as easily been a lucky guess.
Nevertheless, it's pretty interesting. Jim Morrison was an iconic figure in rock and roll history. He was an amazing artist and one couldn't help but to wonder what music would be like if he didn't die at the young age of 27.
Here's a clip from the interview.
