The Doors are among the stars who'll be recognized at this fall's "Classic Rock Roll of Honour" event. The band has been tapped to receive the Inspiration Award at the UK magazine's annual event, which this year is being staged in Los Angeles.
Surviving Doors members Robby Krieger and John Densmore say they feel honored that a British publication is acknowledging what The Doors did "on a beach in L.A.." They add in their statement that they consider it "a sign of respect" that the presentation is taking place on their "own soil."
The UK's Classic Rock magazine is behind the event, which has previously been held in London. Sammy Hagar will host the 10th annual "Roll of Honour" ceremony, taking place at The Avalon in Hollywood on November 4th.
Gregg Allman is also among the honorees who've been announced in advance. He's this year's Living Legend Award recipient. The event also features a number of fan-voted categories. Bruce Springsteen, Motorhead, KISS, Deep Purple, and The Beatles are among the nominees.
Voting is under way now at awards.classicrock.teamrock.com.
