Well...regardless of this rerun bad news...he was a great and talented player with a very unique sound. Really helped make the Doors the one-of-a-kind band that they were. There's a great video on YT about how they wrote "Riders on the Storm" that is a bunch of fun to watch. He's alive during this video...

I always liked the Doors. So very different and he was a large part of they difference. I saw them on their last tour before Jim's girl killed him. I was really surprised at how very good they sounded. Netflix used to have a special if them on Canadian tv right after the 1st album was released but before they were well known. Pretty darn good there too.
That first Doors album still sounds great. I listened to it on the drive home from work today.
Yeah...for whatever reason, I've been listening to them quite a bit lately. They really sound good. And Densmore is a heck of a drummer. Never thought about that before. But in the listening I've been doing lately, I've really concentrated on his playing and it is very varied, versatile and skilled.
