The doors (or 50% of them) are touring for several years now under the name "The Doors of the 21th century".
That's Ray Manzarek, Robby Krieger and they got Cult singer Ian Astbury on vocals (don't know the name of the drummer, but the original Doors drummer didn't want to join them).
They have a live dvd out now called LA Woman live.

A couple of days ago, I read (the newspaper? Rollimg Stone maybe?) where Ray and Robby have asked COURTNEY LOVE-- and she has agreed-- to be the new vocalist for THE DOORS.

Ummm... Yeah...

I mean...

Ha, nicely said.
I just started reading Jim Morrison's biography- very captivating. :o
Me and a couple friends are thinking about jamming out "The End" at an open mic night.

Which one are you reading? They're are tons of books written about The Doors (or Jim Morrison). The best book i've read abouth them is "Break On Through" by James Riordan and Jerry Prochinichy.
I sincerly hope that asking Courtney Love was a joke, that can't be good :?

ray manzarek needs to give it up!!!!!! The doors without Jim Morrison is like Big brother and the holding company without Janis! Whats the point? Who is so in need of money they need to pretend they are jim morrison and sing jim morrisons music? Ray do something else, your a great keyboardist but come on already!

Actually, the show isn't that bad. Th setlist is supposed to be comprised of what the LA Woman setlist would have been had there been a tour....and besides, if you're all gonna say something about The Doors w/o Morrison, then you also have to say the same about....hmmm, let's see.....Jefferson Starship, Creedence Clearwater Revisited, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Allman Brothers Band....need I go on????

alright so lets say something about that.... I agree with you entirely, it is very hard to see legendary rock icons still trying to go at it after 30 years even after more than half of the band has been kicked out or died. The bands become more of a high priced cover band than remnants of the original version who still want to perform on stage. I stopped seeing The Allmans' once I heard Dickey was kicked out, I have no interest in seeing lynyrd skynyrd after half of the band died! John Fogerty needs to drop the ego-so I won't see him and last but not least... Jefferson Starship who I have seen and did enjoy except for one thing...I don't want to hear anybody other than Grace sing Graces' songs. But the one thing about Jeff Starship is it has always been a collaborative effort with various Bay area musicians contributing in music or voice or songwriting, so Jefferson Starship is just continuing what it started and picking up and dropping off different artists all the time. Now for Ray Manzarek, like I said before stop riding on the coattails of a Rock Legend and sex god and get your own gig by now. What did he do musically in the 70's, 80's and 90's after Jim died? Sounds to me he needs the money and Classic rock revival shows are always a big hit with the crowds. If The Doors had a different lead singer back in the 60's, they probably wouldn't have had the popularity or notoriety that they have achieved with Jim as writer and lead singer. Jim Morrison IS the Doors!!!!!!

Well, Manzarek was the Doors singer when Morrison was too wasted to perform.

"Nobody Here Gets Out Alive." Very cool.

Jim Morrison IS the Doors!!!!!!

Now that I think of it, that is kinda true- Morrison seemed like that type of singer that could go with the flow of any band that was could improvise and put up with his poetry and stage antics. But really, could you see him without the Doors???

If manzarek was the singer when Morrison was too wasted to perform, then he should have kicked Morrison out of the band and became lead singer. But, Manzarek knew Morrison was something special and the doors would have been nothing without him- That was the whole mystic about Morrison and he knew it!!!

Do yourself a favor and stop reading Rolling Stone magazine-That magazine hasn't printed a decent article in 25 years! Aren't you tired of smelling cheap cologne samples?
