Following in the holographic footsteps of Tupac, Elvis, Freddie Mercury, and TLC, the estates of Jim Morrison and Jimi Hendrix are considering the idea of holographic live performances, according to Billboard.

Jeff Jampol, who manages the estate of Morrison, told Billboard that he’s been exploring the idea of a “3D” Morrison for nearly a decade, and hopes to create a multimedia experience featuring The Doors. “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.”

Meanwhile, Hendrix’s estate has been working with a London-based company called Musion Systems  to create a virtual version of the late rocker. Janie Hendrix, the sister of Jimi and CEO of Experience Hendrix, said, “For us, of course, it’s about keeping Jimi authentically correct. There are no absolutes at this point.”
