Doors Drummer Goes Solo

John Densmore, the drummer for rock legends The Doors, has filed for divorce from his wife of 16 years, documentary filmmaker Leslie Neale.

Densmore filed divorce papers in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Dec. 8, citing "irreconcilable differences." The couple has one child, a 14-year-old daughter, Luka.

Since the Doors dissolved in 1973, Densmore has been involved in various projects, including dance, stage, and acting gigs. He wrote an autobiography about The Doors, "Riders on the Storm," and has famously rejected the overtures of several companies looking to license Doors songs for advertising, including Cadillac.

Densmore and Neale jointly produced the 2004 documentary "Juvies," which Neale also directed.
