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... Drop by and let me know how The Doors influenced you too.

I loved Ray:( well no more Ray Rob & John:(

from my book "The Poetic Dialectic Mini Books 1-3 by T. Erik Rager A Dissertation on Neo Beat Poetry

"It may be the right thing man

It may be the right thing babe.

For you man Helter Skelter.

Revolution Underwaterfall

The Softcore Revolt

A Generation w/ no ambitions

We need Led Steatlh AKA Of Perception the next generation of The doors

To Cleanse the doors for the masses

oh yet again

The Freedom they took

Shall be regained

My life is over

Time to start my cosmic movie."

the end

Ray was a dopehead who milked 4 years of success into 40 years of doing nothing new.

If Raymond Daniel Manzarek was truly dead it would have been on the National News.... What Jim Morrison taught me was not to lie to every reporter I come in contact with.... John Densmore warned me they were competing with the Beatles I would rather compete with Black Sabbath and the Rolling Stones..... anyways Ray is dead Yes indeed he's a dead head just like Paul McCartney is Dead.
