Original The Doors bandmembers Robby Krieger and Ray Manzarek are to join hundreds of Jim Morrison fans in celebrating what would have been the tragic rocker's 60th birthday in December (03)

The duo will visit Morrison's grave at the Pere Lachaise cemetery in Paris, France, on 8 December (03), the night before they perform in the city with their new line-up.

The 9 December (03) show at LE ZENITH will be extra special - it will be their first ever date in Paris and they'll perform The Doors' final album LA WOMAN in its entirety.

But not everyone is delighted about the Paris show - former Doors drummer John Densmore, who is suing his bandmates over their 21ST CENTURY DOORS revamp, has blasted his old bandmates.

He fumes, "I feel kind of like the French felt toward us when we bombed Iraq about the pseudo-Doors playing Paris and traipsing around Jim's grave for publicity."
