Kilmer Lights Up The Whisky A Go Go As Jim Morrison

VAL KILMER returned to the stage as rock legend JIM MORRISON last night (08NOV06) when he joined THE DOORS for a 40th anniversary show in Hollywood. Group members JOHN DENSMORE, ROBBY KRIEGER and RAY MANZAREK celebrated their 40th year by signing merchandise for fans at three of the group's favourite haunts on Sunset Strip - Book Soup, the Whisky A Go Go and The Cat Club, formerly the London Fog. The special evening also marked the induction of the Whisky A Go Go into the Rock + Roll Hall of Fame. The Doors wrapped up the evening of celebrations by performing classic tunes fronted by PERRY FARRELL, LINKIN PARK star CHESTER BENNINGTON and Kilmer, who portrayed late singer Morrison in OLIVER STONE's THE DOORS. The evening marked a rare reunion for the three existing members of The Doors, who fell out after Krieger and Manzarek created THE DOORS OF THE 21ST CENTURY with THE CULT star IAN ASTBURY. Densmore challenged the name and the reunion, forcing his bandmates to change their moniker to RIDERS ON THE STORM. It was a very special night for the Whisky A Go Go - the venue became the first outside Cleveland, Ohio to be inducted into the Hall of Fame.
