Surviving members of the legendary Doors, drummer John Densmore and guitarist Robby Krieger, are set to appear the upcoming Foo Fighters album "Sonic Highways," Examiner reports.
As reported, the album was recorded in eight cities across the States, so it's safe to assume that Densmore and Krieger come as representatives of Los Angeles.
The list of previously confirmed guests includes Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick rocking the opening track "Something From Nothing," Joe Walsh of the Eagles, Joan Jett, and the New Orleans Preservation Jazz Hall Band.
In related news, producer Butch Vig shared a few comments on the album-making process, praising frontman Dave Grohl's love for life and music.
"I love Dave like a crazy brother," Butch told 93 XRT. "I don't know anyone who has such infectious enthusiasm for life and for music... [The Foos] are capable of doing what they want to do, and we decided to make this record in eight different cities. The band wrote eight songs and we recorded them all in eight different locales in the U.S.
"Part of the documentary is about the recording of the song and a lot of it is about he musical history of that city... And it's also about what it means to the Foos and to Dave. He taps into what each city musically, personally means him. Each city truly had it's own experience. One of the cool things about the album is... each song has that city's sound to a certain extent and definitely the environment we recorded in. Each song is it’s own unique beast," the producer added.
"Sonic Highways" is due out on November 10. Pre-order the album here.
