Robby Krieger and John Densmore, the remaining members of the band The Doors, plan to give tribute to Ray Manzarek, who was the band’s keyboardist before he died at age 74 in May this year.
The band said that they are to do one show for Ray and give him a “send-off”. The one show had observers speculate about a possible reunion with John Densmore
In the past, Guitarist Robby and Manzarek had a conflict against John Densmore about the band touring as The Doors of the 21st Century, prompting Densmore to file a lawsuit against the two. The two filed a $40 million countersuit against drummer Densmore because of his refusal to license The Doors songs for commercials.
However, regardless of their personal vendettas, the three continued to work on music with Skrillex on “Breakin’ a Sweat” and another remake of “Strange Days”, the band’s original song, which should be out by July 30 this year.
Despite the conflict, he hopes to “bury the hatchet” with Densmore, who got him in to the band in the first place. He said that he cannot hate John forever.
The Doors is a classic rock band who became controversial in the 1960s, who made hits such as Riders of the Storm, The End, Hello I Love You and Backdoor Man.
