Former pals-turned-feuding bandmates Robby Krieger and John Densmore are to reteam onstage as part of a tribute to late The Doors star Ray Manzarek later this year (13).

The news comes just weeks after Manzarek's death and after drummer Densmore revealed he would be reaching out to Krieger in a bid to put a show together.

The rockers fell out a decade ago during a legal battle over the use of the band's name - Densmore opposed Krieger and Manzarek's plans to tour as The Doors of the 21st Century and forced his former bandmates to change their name.

But now guitarist Krieger has confirmed there are plans to reteam.

He tells Rolling Stone magazine, "We're going to do at least one show for Ray and have a big send-off. That's either the start or the end of it, I don't know."

And it appears the musician has major regrets about his legal battle with Densmore, which drove a wedge between the former bandmates.

He adds, "That's what you do - if someone sues you, you sue them twice as hard back and hope that they drop the suit. It was a very stupid idea. We had the worst lawyers.

"He's (Densmore) the one that got me in the Doors. What am I going to do? I can't hate him forever. I just wish he had wanted to play with Ray and I back before all this started. That's when things went bad."

And talking about Manzarek's death in May (13), following a cancer battle, Krieger says, "He had a good run... I kind of noticed on the last tour that he was slowing down a little bit."

The guitarist reveals he and Manzarek recorded a wealth of new material over the past decade, adding, "We worked on some stuff with Ian Astbury. Maybe something will come of that at some point. It was some pretty good stuff, actually. We couldn't call it The Doors. We didn't know what to call it, and we kind of gave up on it."
