The Doors’ Robby Krieger & John Densmore Share Stage For First Time In 15 Years


The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles hosted an all-star tribute to The Doors’ keyboardist Ray Manzarek last night. Surviving Doors members Robby Krieger and John Densmore performed together for the first time in 15 years at a show that featured contributions from members of Gov’t Mule, Foo Fighters, X, Jane’s Addiction, Stone Temple Pilots and more.

Friday’s show came in honor of Manzarek who passed away in 2013. Rami Jaffee of Foo Fighters was on keys for most of the night according to a Rolling Stone report. Warren Haynes helped out on a number of songs including “When The Music’s Over,” “Wild Child” and “Roadhouse Blues.” Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins led the all-star troupe through “Alabama Song” and “Love Me Two Times” as part of the first set of the two set performance. X’s John Doe and Exene took a turn in the spotlight for “Soul Kitchen” and “Nausea.” Robby Krieger was on stage for most of the performance, while Densmore would swap in and out with Stephen Perkins of Jane’s Addiction.

Other contributors included Brian Ray, Robert DeLeo, Phil Chen, Andrew Wyatt and Waylon Krieger. Densmore and Krieger swapped high-fives and told stories of their old band throughout the show. The evening came to a close with all of the performers joining in on “Light My Fire.”
