The Doors 21st Century

Ray Manzarek and Robby Krieger have chosen to relight the Doors' fire with a "reunion" tour, with the Cult's Ian Astbury stepping forward in Jim Morrison's spot. But the two might have known problems would crop up, since, well, people are strange. Already, drummer John Densmore, who declined the tour, has sued his bandmates, forcing a name change to Doors 21st Century. And just last week, news broke that Police drummer Stewart Copeland, scheduled to replace Densmore before an injury forced him out, is suing Manzarek and Krieger for $1 million. Knowing how short-fused the modern concertgoer can be, the new Doors better put on a good show, or this little whirl may well serve as an embarrassment for years to come.
