About Riders On the Storm

The last song The Doors ever recorded was "Riders on the Storm". "Jim (Morrison) finished the vocals and left for Paris", states Doors keyboardist Ray Manzarek, that was the last song I ever heard him sing, and the last time I ever saw my friend alive.

Taking a spiritual cue from that lasting encounter, Manzarek, Doors guitarist Robby Krieger and The Cult's Ian Astbury, claimed "Riders on the Storm" as their band's new moniker and breathed life back into the riveting live experience of this storied body of work.

Originally formed in 2002, and billed as The Doors; the project hit a few bumps along the way. Retired Doors drummer John Densmore tried to stop the band from performing, however, the fans always get it right, and the outpouring of love and support for this band has been phenomenal. "Riders on the Storm" deliver what audiences want; passion, excitement, energy and a little bit of the unexpected.

Of course, no one can ever replace Jim Morrison, However, Astbury's performance is captivating. A superstar in his own right, Astbury's performance is fueled by the virtuosity and brilliance of Manzarek and Krieger. The Rock n Roll Hall of Fame alumni weave intricate tapestries of hypnotic sounds that seem top push Astbury towards the psychic edge. Musical stabs, groans, shrieks and howls emit from the genius guitar that is Robby Krieger, while that signature, swirling, spook house organ, rises from the very soul of Ray Manzarek.

The band is brilliantly rounded out by Los Angeles, monster session ace, Ty Dennis on drums and the legendary Phil Chen (Rod Stewart, Jeff Beck) on bass.

No two performances are alike. Improvisation is the rule not the exception. The hits of The Doors are performed by the founding members of the band, a singer born to share the ritual space, and two world class musicians holding down the bottom, all played with an intensity that is indeed a rare commodity in today's world of entertainment.
 
Says Krieger, "This is what we do, we play music, and we wrote this music with Jim. The fans deserve a place to go, we owe it to them, and we'll continue doing this as long as they keep coming out." The band has performed for over 1,000,000 fans in the last two years.
The reviews have been great, the shows are sellouts, and the fans keep coming back for "Riders on the Storm". The band plans to continue playing select dates throughout the world with no end in site. They will be out there, making new fans and giving the long time Doors fans a place to "get together, one more time"
