You don't have idea how glad I em that Ian Astbury is not singer in the Doors any more. He made right decision and I em on his side.
Ian do not deserve to be somebody's replacement. In the start I did not like idea that Ian would be Morrison's imitation.
Astbury is original, unigue and he have excellent vocal abilitys, better then Morrison.I realliy love and respect him as artist and he deserv his on band - The Cult! I don't care what people saying but on my opinion Ian Astbury is the best rock-vocal of all times!

No one is better than Jim Morrison.He is the only one who can sing in the doors. Ian itīs a crapy bad imitation of Jim.

Jim Morrison is the Doors and Ian Astbury is the Cult.
Both have made their groups legends.
