JOHN DENSMORE MADE PEACE WITH RAY MANZAREK BEFORE HIS DEATH



Doors drummer John Densmore revealed that despite the personal and legal problems that split him and Ray Manzarek over the years, the pair made peace before Manzarek's death last month from bile duct cancer. Last month, Densmore published his second memoir, called The Doors: Unhinged - Jim Morrison's Legacy Goes On Trial. The book details Densmore's successful five-year battle against Manzarek and Robby Krieger over their use of the band name for new projects and the Doors' music for a proposed $15 million commercial deal with Cadillac.

Densmore told Rolling Stone that Manzarek's death wasn't completely unexpected and that he and Manzarek were able to put their differences aside and just talk like old buddies one last time: "The inner circle knew Ray had cancer for a while. Then I heard he was really sick and called him. He said thank you for the prayers and told me chemo was f***ed. So there was a closing, thank God."

Densmore went on to shed light on his relationship with surviving Doors member, guitarist Robby Krieger and the possibility of a tribute to Manzarek in L.A.: "Well, we were best friends, and it really feels nice to connect again. I said to Robby a few weeks ago in an email: 'Let's have our musical reunion for Ray. Let's play some Doors songs at the Whisky or Wiltern -- there's a lot of great musicians in L.A. that we know and love and admire the band. I'd like to break the ice that way.' It should happen pretty soon."
