Ray Manzarek had the patience of a saint. He recognised the need for a thoughtful, carnal force in rock and roll that was not there before he opened The Doors.

The music remains inspiring and timeless. Every fourteen-year-old must have Beatles, Stones, Doors, Pistols,Hendrix, Dylan..these are a consummate collection of artists who wrote the book.P

Personally, I found Ray to be him a true renaissance gentleman.Part zen and part hedonist, kind and open, literary and spontaneous. He will live forever in the pantheon of popular music.

The Doors of Perception, indeed. God bless him and his family.
