I'm a comedian in Chicago. I play piano, ukulele, make graphics, write songs, and I'm a big fan of my dog Charlie.
There were two things that defined the sound of The Doors… one was the languid voice and dark, brooding lyrics of Jim Morrison and the other was the soulful and intricate keyboard melodies of Ray Manzarek. And today, at the age of 74, Manzarek passed from this mortal coil to join Jim Morrison on the other side.
This gives me the sads
His keyboard parts were and still are. Badass
