Doors slammed on Doors' appeal

The legal rumblings over the use of The Doors as a name for ex-Doors Ray Manzarek and guitarist Robby Krieger when they toured with Ian Astbury have almost played themselves out: The Californian High Court have refused to hear the pair's appeal against a five million dollar judgement in favour of John Densmore, Jim Morrison's and Pamela Courson's parents.

The problem was with the use of the name and the logo:

"You can't call yourselves The Doors because you can't have The Doors without Jim Morrison," Densmore's attorney S. Jerome Mandel said.

Although, to be honest, you might wonder how Densmore is able to take action on behalf of the Doors when he doesn't have Jim Morrison either.
