Formerly estranged Doors bandmates John Densmore and Robby Krieger will join forces next month to pay tribute to the band’s late co-founders, Jim Morrison and Ray Manzarek, according to Vintage Vinyl News. The pair will appear on December 5th at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, in commemoration of what would have been Jim Morrison’s 70th birthday on December 8th and the passing earlier this year of Ray Manzarek. Manzarek died on May 20th, 2013 at age 74 following a long battle with bile duct cancer. Morrison died on July 3rd, 1971 of a “heart attack induced by respiratory problems” while in Paris at age 27.

Densmore and Krieger will be on hand at the Museum for a showing of the band’s recent documentary Mr. Mojo Risin': The Story Of L.A. Woman, followed by a chat about the band’s music and career.

Earlier this year it was reported that a new Jim Morrison documentary is in the works, which will chronicle his life from his childhood through his career with the Doors. The independent film, named Before The End: Jim Morrison Comes Of Age is already in production led by filmmakers Jess and Jeff Finn.

Among the key participants in the Before The End are Morrison’s kid brother, Andy Morrison, Morrison’s UCLA film instructor Bill Adams, and Doors roadie Gareth Blythe, among others. The new film promises, “previously unseen home movies and photographs.”

There’s been no word on a release date so far.
