Five to One, One in Five…

No one here gets out alive.

Ray Manzarek (1939-2013) was the keyboard player for The Doors.  Jim Morrison was the visible front man for the group, but Ray, Robbie Krieger, and John Densmore helped to create the unique sound of the band.  I don’t think Morrison would have been as effective with any other musicians.

The heyday of The Doors was during my preteen years, but in the late 70s the enjoyed a resurgence that I was a part of.  Ray and the other members never had significant musical success after Morrison died (at least, not commercially), but the renewed interest in The Doors offered them all the opportunity to capitalize a bit on the work they created in the late 60s and early 70s. Their music is a significant portion of the soundtrack of my life.
