Ray Manzarek

It was a surprise to see he had passed.  Ray Manzarek, in my opinion, was the leader of the Doors.  Without him, the band would not have been formed and would not have created the music it did.  Morrison was a kite – he created beauty but Ray was the man that let him soar. Manzarek held on to the string as best he could and added his own complimentary style so that we could all enjoy Morrison’s talent.

One thought on “Ray Manzarek

  1. Ray’s playing was a staple of The Doors. He’ll certainly be missed after such a long and fruitful career helping to create such haunting music. The Doors’ songs opened my mind to other realms of possibilities and cleansed my perception. I paid tribute to Ray when I heard of his passing by creating a new portrait of him and some melting doors which you can see on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2013/05/in-memoriam-ray-manzarek.html Drop by and let me know how The Doors influenced you too.
