Ray Manzarek, incredibly influential keyboardist for The Doors, has passed away. His bouncy, jazzy organ melodies and rhythms were an essential ingredient in what made that band what it was.
I’m a big Doors fan. But I didn’t know about this new documentary about the band, When You’re Strange, until Dan told me today. I’ll see it, though itdoesn’t look like it’s going to be earth-stoppingly good or shed much new light.
