Today, February 12, 1939, one of the greatest keyboard players in rock and roll was born in Chicago. Raymond Daniel Manzarek Jr. is the name on the birth certificate. Member of The Doors, Ray Manzarek to my mind one of the coolest musicians /people around. It’s still hard to believe that he died (May 20, 2013), but the music he made with The Doors will be with us forever.

Here’s a little bit of Ray. Can you dig it man.
