Former Cult singer Ian Astbury, who has been touring with Doors keyboard player Ray Manzarek and guitarist Robby Krieger first as the humbly named Doors of the 21st Century and then as the more evocative Riders on the Storm, has announced that he will be ending his relationship with the duo.
It's a crying shame that Astbury won't get the opportunity to revisit the career high points of legendary Doors frontman Jim Morrison. Unlike the original Mr. Mojo Risin', he'll never get to take his "little Lizard King" out for an onstage walk, become a bearded, bloated blob or expire in a Paris bathtub -- or at least do any of those things as a member of the Doors.
Let's hope someone will be kind enough to vandalize his headstone someday.
