Ed Sullivan with his finger on the 5 sec delay censor

I usually don't watch the Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn (long story dealing with a good friend who worked there that informed me what an incredible ass he is, and it was downhill from there, but I digress), but as KO was surfing on the couch, we came across a musical appearance by the Doors! Yes, there's Ray ticklin' the ivory, a familiar face on the skins, Robby shreddin' away, and Jim on the mic! At least, that's what the LSD was telling me...
It turns out that the Doors are back with a vengeance, recording a new album with Ian Astburyof the Cult and, not to leave Gordon Sumner out of the mix, his former mate and accomplished composer Stewart Copeland of the Police on drums.
Here's a brief article from the BBC News:

The Doors postpone reunion
A new formation of seminal rock band The Doors has been forced to postpone its first shows because the drummer has broken his arm.
Original members Ray Manzarek and Robby Krieger were due to perform on Sunday with The Cult singer Ian Astbury and former Police drummer Stuart Copeland.
But Copeland was injured when he fell off his bicycle on a path near his Los Angeles home during the Thanksgiving holiday.
The Doors' original drummer John Densmore was ruled out of the reunion by severe tinnitus.

Needless to say, KO and I were a little shocked.
I still am undecided about my feelings with this. What do you think?
