Rock legends The Doors were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993. Filling the mammoth shoes of Jim Morrison was a 29 year-old Eddie Vedder who was just hitting his stride with Pearl Jam. Vedder and Pearl Jam were catapulted into rock-star status with the release of Jeremy in 1993.
Despite his age, Eddie proves he’s an old soul with his vocals being the perfect compliment to The Doors brand of rock. Manzarek, Krieger and Densmore joined Vedder for the ceremony and played Roadhouse Blues, Break on Through and Light My Fire. The reunion marks the first time that Manzarek, Krieger and Densmore played together in 15 years. Trust me, they hadn’t missed a beat.
From Manzarek’s towering keyboard solo, to Krieger’s outstanding guitar work, including a A Few of My Favorite Things tease, The Doors along with Vedder look and sound like a band that could tour. A shame they didn’t.
