Ray Manzarek and Robby Krieger of The Doors intended to play concerts with original drummer John Densmore, who refused to do so. They rehearsed with Stewart Copeland and Ian Astbury and played their first concert on 2002-09-03 at the House of Blues in Los Angeles, CA, USA. On 2002-09-06 the band did a press conference for their concert at the California Speedway in Fontana, CA, USA.
Stewart expressed his concerns about the use of the name "The Doors" in a memo he wrote on 2002-09-15.
On 2002-11-28 Stewart Copeland fractured his left arm when he was bicycling from Venice Beach to Santa Monica and avoided hitting a 3 year old child on its tricycle. A concert in Las Vegas had to be re-scheduled because of that injury.
On 2003-01-16 Stewart performed Light My Fire with the band on the Jay Leno show in Los Angeles, CA, USA. After the concert at Palms Casino in Las Vegas, NV, USA on 2003-01-19 Stewart was replaced with drummer Ty Dennis.
On 2003-03-07 Stewart Copeland filed a lawsuit against The Doors Of The 21st Century at Los Angeles Superior Court. He claimed the breach of an oral contract - that he'd participate on the band's 2003 tour and on an upcoming album - and sued for $1 million.
On 2003-06-03 Stewart settled his argument with Manzarek and Krieger (case file BC291738) without any details of the agreement surfacing - the legal case was closed the next day.
After finally losing the John Densmore lawsuit in 2005 the band changed their name to "Riders On The Storm".
