Classic Rock Stars To Pay Tribute To The Doors

(hennemusic) A star-studded list of classic rockers will appear on a new tribute album to The Doors. Due June 24, "Light My Fire - A Classic Rock Salute To The Doors" will feature a variety of artists performing versions of Doors classics like "Light My Fire", "Riders On The Storm", "Break On Through (To The Other Side)", "Love Her Madly", "L.A. Woman", "People Are Strange", and more.

Rockers included current and former members of Deep Purple, Yes, Grand Funk, Rainbow, ELP, the Moody Blues, The Cars and others, alongside Pat Travers, Todd Rundgren, Edgar Winter and more.

Not one but two members of the quintessential prog rock band Yes - keyboard wizard Rick Wakeman and lead guitarist Steve Howe - joined Deep Purple's Ian Gillan on the signature song, "Light My Fire", which as Wakeman explains, "has always been one of those iconic tracks that keyboard players listen to because of the fact that there are so few tracks with keyboard/organ solos on them compared to our six-stringed buddies. It's also a solo area that is totally open to interpretation so whatever you do is not comparable to the original, so it was an absolute joy to do." more on this story
