Another day, another hologram it seems. We’ve recently seen 2pac on stage, and word that the king will rise again, but today we’ve been told that holograms are being planned in the form of Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison, says Billboard.
According to Jeff Jampol, who manages the Doors frontman’s estate, this is a concept he has been looking into for more than a decade now. Since Dr. Dre brought the concept to the mainstream’s attention, its an idea that can finally come true for Doors fans. “Hopefully, ‘Jim Morrison’ will be able to walk right up to you, look you in the eye, sing right at you and then turn around and walk away”. he’s stated.
Janie Hendrix, the manager of brother Jimi’s estate, has been a bit more cautious of the idea, despite contacting the London-based Musion Systems, who specialise in the topic, Jimi’s reputation is still at the forefront of her mind: “For us, of course, it’s about keeping Jimi authentically correct. There are no absolutes at this point.”
Marvin Gaye has been considered to re-appear, as well as Justin Beiber – that seems to be a bit premature. One of the kid is enough as it is.
