The Doors surviving members Robby Krieger and John Densmore reunited as Venice declared January 4 as The Day Of The Doors in honour of the band.

“We started right here in Venice and we are ending up right here in Venice,” Robby Krieger told Associated Press.

Jim Morrison, Ray Manzarek, Robby Krieger and John Densmore formed The Doors in Venice, California in 1965. The band’s self-titled debut album was released on January 4, 1967, exactly 50 years ago this week.

“The ocean is just right out there and that is where Jim got the idea to write ‘Moonlight Drive’,” John Densmore said.

The City of Los Angeles has resolved to make January 4 The Day of The Doors. “I bet if Jim were here he would have dug it. He would be proud,” Robby said.

“I am sure Ray would have loved it. He was always working the band,” John added.
