LOS ANGELES, Aug. 16 (UPI) -- VH1 Classic says its new show "Decades Rock Live" will bring today's stars together with yesterday's musical legends.

The pilot -- "A Tribute to the Doors" -- features original members Ray Manzarek and Robby Krieger of the Doors along with Perry Farrell, Macy Gray, Pat Travers, John Sebastian, Vanilla Fudge and Antigone Rising, Daily Variety reported.

The next segment will feature Bonnie Raitt, Norah Jones, Ben Harper, Alison Krauss and Keb' Mo'. Future shows will include Alice Cooper, Sheryl Crow, the Doobie Brothers and Michael McDonald, Cyndi Lauper, Sarah McLachlan, Motley Crue, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Rob Zombie and Bill Corgan.

It is possible the show could end up airing on VH1 as well as its classic spinoff, Variety said.

Plans were also in the works for CDs and DVDs of the series.

The series premieres Oct. 8 on VH1 Classic.
