The Doors Don't Suck

Love Me Two Times
I'd give the Doors credit for being one of the few white-boy bands who can play a blues and not totally blow it, and that's because of their high level of musicianship, which is not just technically proficient but clever and full of feeling. Listen to Manzarek's harpsichord solo that starts around 1:25: it's a seemingly effortless piece of tricky rhythmic counterpoint, dancing around the beat, but more to the point who the heck plays a badass harpsichord solo over a blues?
