Surviving Doors to Reunite
Two living the Doors members, Robby Krieger and John Densmore, will reunite to play a memorial show for the late Ray Manzarek, Classic Rock reports. While Densmore had been feuding with the rest of the band for almost a decade, the drummer made peace with Manzarek before he died: "The inner circle knew Ray had cancer for a while. Then I heard he was really sick and called him. He said thank you for the prayers, and told me chemo was fucked. So there was a closing, thank God." He is also back on speaking terms with guitarist Robby Krieger, and the pair are planning to play together again. "I said to Robby a few weeks ago in an email: 'Let's have our musical reunion for Ray. Let's play some Doors songs. It's like to break the ice that way.' It should happen pretty soon. One of the reasons that Densmore fell out with the band was because of their plan to use signature tune "Light My Fire" in an advertising campaign, something which Jim Morrison had once strongly opposed. "What blows my mind is that 'Light My Fire' was primarily Robby's song. Jim threw in 'love become a funeral pyre.' Typical Morrison. If he flips out over 'Come on, Buick, light my fire,' what does that mean about his caring for the whole catalog, everything we represented? I'm not going to forget that." Are you looking forward for the Doors reunion? Let us know in the comments.
