The Doors get star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

The Doors cemented their legendary rock status with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Wednesday.

The Doors' keyboardist Ray Manzarek, 68, and guitarist Robby Krieger, 61, showed up minus the group's estranged member, drummer John Densmore, for the dedication of the walk's 2,325th star. Legendary lead singer Jim Morrison died in 1971.

"Jim always used to say: The West is the best!" Krieger said. "It has been an incredible 40 years, and now I'm back with Ray and we're still playing, and you know, it may never end."

The band, whose dark sound helped to define the '60s, is known for such hits as "Light My Fire" and "L.A. Woman."

"It is a great honor to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame ... a street that Jim Morrison, Robby Krieger and I traipsed up and down, going into bars, asking if they'd hire a rock band," Densmore said in a statement read by Morrison's nephew, Dylan Graham.

Densmore, 62, said he was unable to make the ceremony because he was being interviewed on a local radio station.

The Doors dissolved several years after Morrison's death.

Densmore became estranged from Manzarek and Krieger after a lawsuit over the group's name, reports AP.

In 2005, a judge issued a permanent injunction barring Krieger and Manzarek from calling themselves the Doors and using any likeness of Morrison to promote a renewed version of the band.

He announced his intention to create a news service called "Pravda," which means "truth" in Russian. Well, we are Pravda. The Pravda.Ru website has been working professionally in Russia since 1999
