KFIX Rock News: Surviving Doors Members Confirm Reunion

kridenAs a tribute to late keyboardist Ray Manzarek, The Doors’ surviving members, guitarist Robbie Krieger and drummer John Densmore, are set to reunite later this year.

Thus far, only one show is certain, but more could follow.

“We’re going to do at least one show for Ray and have a big send-off,” Krieger recently told Rolling Stone.

“That’s either the start or the end of it, I don’t know.”

Krieger and Densmore have settled their decade-long legal battles stemming from Krieger and Manzarek began touring in 2002 as the “Doors Of The 21st Century”.

The Krieger/Manzarek trek led to a lawsuit over the use of the Doors name, as well as a $40 million countersuit against Densmore for his refusal to sign off on multi-million-dollar licensing of the band’s music for commercials.

Said Krieger, “That’s what you do; if someone sues you, you sue them twice as hard back and hope they drop the suit.”

“It was a very stupid idea. We had the worst lawyers.”

Manzarek passed away in May after a cancer battle.  He was 74.

A date for the tribute show hasn’t been confirmed.
