Watch Krist Novoselic and Jerry Cantrell Perform With Surviving Doors Members
Seattle's Museum of Pop Culture recently honored the Doors at their 2017 Founders Award Celebration. Former Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic joined the surviving members of the Doors, guitarist Robby Krieger and drummer John Densmore, for a performance of "Light My Fire," and Alice in Chains' Jerry Cantrell sat in on "Love Her Madly" with Krieger on guitar.
We've embedded "Light My Fire" above, and "Love Her Madly" below. On the former, Novoselic didn't play bass, but rather the accordion, and Krieger began his solo by playing "My Favorite Things" from The Sound of Music. For the latter, Cantrell echoed Jim Morrison's vocals. Also performing that night were Carlos Santana and John Doe and Exene Cervenka of X.
The event also served as a fundraiser for the museum, which was founded in 2000 by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen. According to a news release, the night raised more than $1 million for its programs and youth initiatives. Previous honorees include Joe Walsh, Jimmy Page and Heart's Ann and Nancy Wilson, who received the inaugural Founders Award in 2007.
Formerly known as the Experience Music Project and Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame, which was usually shortened to the EMP Museum, the Museum of Pop Culture (MoPOP) changed its name last year. "MoPOP reflects who we are today and the future of the museum,” CEO Patty Isacson said. "Pop culture is a platform that resonates with audiences in a powerful way. And at MoPOP we provide avenues through our exhibits and programs for people to explore, learn, create, and celebrate pop culture in all of its diversity."
