The Doors Plan 'Something Cool' For 50th Anniversary

(Gibson) As the 50th anniversary of The Door's debut album approaches, guitarist Robby Krieger says he and drummer John Densmore hope to commemorate the milestone in some special ways. Chief among these will be a salute to keyboardist Ray Manzarek, who died in 2013.

"There will be something cool happening," Krieger tells Billboard. "I can't say exactly what yet, but we never did get our tribute to Ray thing going, so it'll be part of that, for sure, and probably for Jim [Morrison], too." Krieger declined to be more specific, but presumably the anniversary-which occurs in 2017-will include live shows.

"… People still love The Doors' music and I can tell you that it's still fun to play," says Krieger. "I think that's a good indicator right there--if people still like to play it, then people still like to listen to it. I've played on a lot of records that I wouldn't even care about hearing again or playing live, but for some reason the Doors songs are still fun…." Comment here.
