The Doors R-Evolution - an interview with John Densmore in Goldmine Magazine was published, while it revolves around January’s DVD release of “The Doors R-Evolution” Densmore does get into some future projects he’s involved in. While there’s still nothing solid about a reunion with Robby Krieger for a Ray Manzarek tribute concert, Densmore did mention the possibility of a Black Friday or Record Store Day release of a “Ghost Song” from an “American Prayer” and the Peter LaFarge cover of “Drums” Densmore did a couple of years ago (see related articles below). The most interesting thing about this release is Densmore is hoping for Shepard Fairey to do the jacket cover of the release. You can read the full interview “Drummer John Densmore Revisits his Past with The Doors” at Goldmine Magazine.
