Kilmer No Show At Doors Celebration

LATEST: VAL KILMER missed out on a chance to recreate JIM MORRISON onstage with the real DOORS in Hollywood on Wednesday night (08NOV06) when he got "stuck in traffic." Kilmer rehearsed with Doors founders ROBBY KRIEGER and RAY MANZAREK at the fabled Whisky A Go Go venue before the group's 40th anniversary celebrations got underway, but he failed to show for a scheduled jam session. The movie star, who played late Doors frontman Morrison in OLIVER STONE's film THE DOORS, missed out on the chance to join PERRY FARRELL, SLASH and LINKIN PARK star CHESTER BENINGTON as part of the last-night performance. Event spokesman YOSI SERGANT says, "He was there for rehearsals and he was amazing. No one knows what happened to him. I think he got stuck in traffic." Another absentee from the Whisky A Go Go show was The Doors drummer JOHN DENSMORE, who signed merchandise for fans at the event but refused to join his former bandmates onstage. Densmore has vocally opposed Krieger and Manzarek's plans to reform and tour as THE DOORS OF THE 21ST CENTURY and his efforts led to the duo renaming themselves RIDERS OF THE STORM. Densmore was replaced by KEVIN FIGG, the drummer with Perry Farrell's new group SATELLITE PARTY.
