A Final Salute to Ray
Posted:Monday, 06/03/2013 at 03:06am by Greg Easterling
We began a new week of late night vinyl this morning with The Doors, once more in memory of their late keyboardist and co-founder Ray Manzarek who recently passed away.

As has been recounted elsewhere, Ray was originally from Chicago, attending both St. Rita's and also DePaul University. He made the move of his life in the mid-Sixties, leaving town for California and UCLA Film School. That's where he met fellow film student Jim Morrison. A later chance meeting on Venice Beach led Ray and Jim to band together to form what became one of the best and more influential American bands of alltime.

This morning we listened to Side 2 of The Doors classic 1967 debut. From "Back Door Man" to "The End". RIP Ray!!
