In the early 1970s, he pursued a new passion (reggae) with Robby Krieger in The Butts Band before the genre had much impact in the U.S.
The three surviving members of The Doors reunited in the late '70s for An American Prayer, an album of new music set to recordings of Morrison's poetry. Densmore joined Ray Manzarek and Robby Krieger for The Doors' induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993.
Densmore has also expanded the global reach of his music by collaborating with Persian (Iranian) master Reza Derakshani, producing and playing on the latter's forthcoming album, Ray of the Wine.
