The Doors: celebrating the late Ray Manzarek

Their keyboard player was also the beating heart of The Doors long after they split.

The spirit of The Doors may have died that fateful day in July 1971 when Jim Morrison was found dead in his bathtub in Paris, but the band’s heart and soul kept beating until May 2013 when founder member Ray Manzarek passed away.

In 2006 I spoke to him about his friend, and his band.
