“We’re trying to get to a point where 3D characters will walk around,” Jeff Jampol, manager of The Doors and the Jim Morrison estate says. “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.”
“For us, of course, it’s about keeping Jimi authentically correct,” explains Janie Hendrix, sister of Jimi and CEO of Experience Hendrix. “There are no absolutes at this point.”
We’ve already seen this trend take off with the appearance of Hologram 2Pac at Coachella, and people are talking. It’s only a matter of time before the technology is improved and applied to other legends of music.
