Cult Singer Slams Vedder, Farrell, Grohl, Reznor and Weiland As Fakes was a top story for this week. Here it is again: (Rock Radio) Cult frontman Ian Astbury has slammed American stars for not stepping up to front The Doors of the 21st Century and has named and shamed Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam and Perry Farrell of Jane's Addiction as fakes who lack integrity.

Astbury replaced Jim Morrison for the Doors in 150 shows and says he was proud to do it, but he believes a Stateside singer should have been there to perform with the iconic 60s outfit.

"There wasn't a single American singer who stepped up to the plate and said: 'I want to do this. I'm an American artist I demand to do this," He tells the HeraldSun. "Not Eddie Vedder, not Dave Grohl, not Trent Reznor, not Perry Farrell. Not Scott Weiland. Not one of them stepped up and fought for it. When The Doors needed that generation to surround them and support them, the cupboard was bare." - he's not done.
