Last month, Film Independent treated music lovers to a rock-and-roll milestone: the two remaining members of the Doors, Robby Krieger and John Densmore, performed together for the first time in 15 years. The surprise set followed a Film Independent at LACMA screening of the 2012 documentary Mr. Mojo Risin’: The Story of L.A. Woman. Featuring archival footage and interviews with Krieger, Densmore, Ray Manzarek (who died in May 2013), Elektra Records founder Jac Holzman, Doors manager Bill Siddons and co-producer/engineer Bruce Botnick. The film chronicles the making of the seminal 1971 record, made just months before Jim Morrison was found dead in his Paris apartment.
Now, for the first time, we’re revealing an exclusive video of the acoustic performance of People Are Strange, Love Me Two Times, Spanish Caravan, and a medley of Riders on the Storm and Ghost Riders in the Sky.
