In 2002, original Doors Robby Krieger and Ray Manzarek joined Police drummer Stewart Copeland
and Cult singer Ian Astbury
to form a new group which they called "21st Century Doors," the name being a takeoff on this song. They were going to start touring in 2002, but had to postpone until 2003 when Copeland broke his arm while biking. Krieger and Manzarek replaced him with drummer Ty Dennis, and Copeland filed a lawsuit claiming they broke an oral agreement to keep him as their drummer. The band was also sued by original drummer John Densmore, and by Jim Morrison's parents, who felt they were misappropriating the Doors name. Krieger and Manzarek eventually changed the name to "Riders On The Storm."
