Ray Manzarek Breaks On Through To The Other Side.

Ray Manzarek

Another continuing sad loss for our Woodstock Generation with the passing of Ray Manzarek. It seems like only yesterday that The Doors journey started but what a mark that was left by this legendary band.

It was fate that both him and Jim Morrison again would meet up at Ventura beach and I guess for the crazy changing wondrous times it would be that same fate along with Robby Krieger and John Densmore that this band’s sound would explode.

Sunday “An American Prayer-“Not” (Full Track) ~ The Doors

There are young people among us that don’t realize that this entire song was done after Jim Morrison died.

The music written and adapted around 3 hours of Morrison’s poetry readings from March of 1969 & Dec. 8, 1970. Though Morrison himself approached Lalo Schifrin to write some experimental classical music to be applied to these poetry readings with little orchestration.

What Ray Manzarek, Robby Krieger and John Densmore did is what they wanted to do with another artist’s work but the artist having died had no say in the matter. Some praise the song as a masterpiece but whose masterpiece is it?

It certainly wasn’t Jim Morrison’s. He wanted a completely different outcome to what he wrote. I encourage every single person who reads this blog to read the interview that took place with Paul Rothchild on July 3, 1981 with Bam Magazine. It is beyond blatantly honest
