I Am the Capitalist King: On the brink of their 40th anniversary, the Doors are
jumping the shark cashing in on their legendary rock cachet. Plans are underway for a Las Vegas "interactive exhibit" (which could really give "Touch Me, Babe" a whole new spin) and the band's music may be used in commercials for the first time. Band manager Jeff Jampol says, "We will never license a Doors song for a mundane product like toothpaste or deodorant." Could we suggest, perhaps, leather pants?
On the upside, the band's anniversary will also be marked with a 12-disc boxed set this fall.
