Robby Krieger says The Doors fans should look forward to 2017, when he and drummer John Densmore – the group’s two survivors -- celebrate the 50th anniversary of "Light My Fire" and their rise to stardom.

He says, "We're calling 2017 the 50th anniversary, so... we got a lot of stuff planned for that, Doors-wise. Can't really tell you exactly what it is yet, but that'll be the year when we really... turn it on."

In the meantime, Krieger is doing solo shows and promoting the soon-to-released DVD documentary Turn It Up! He's one of several famed guitarists -- along with Jeff "Skunk" Baxter, Nancy Wilson, Slash, Steve Lukather, Les Paul and B.B. King -- who help tell the story of the development of the electric guitar and how it became the backbone of rock and roll.
