This is an interview of The Doors from 1969..We get to hear from the legend himself Jim Morrison throughout the short video. One thing that it seems Morrison was spot on with was a sort of prediction of the future popularity of the one man DJ, dance and club music by the likes of Armin Van Buuren and Skrillex for example.. Morrison toward the end of the video talks of a future of music that includes relying heavily on electronics, Morrison said he could envision one person with a lot of machines, tapes and electronics set up.

Well given the state of music in the late 60's his predictions about electronic music are not that prophetic

John Densmore the drummer of the Doors is a hero of music. Densmore(one can see him at the 38 second mark of the video in the Op) prevented Cadillac from using the doors song for a super bowl commercial for 15 million dollars. Densmore turned down the money because he felt it was in line with the legacy of Morrison of not selling out to corporations. That goes to show Densmore had very high values and was true to his values something to greatly admire in an age where so many musicians sell out.,
