The organist, keyboardist, keyboard-bassist for the 1960's and 1970's LA rock band The Doors. Ray attended UCLA film school with Jim Morrison and they formed the band in 1966. When singer Morrison was too drunk to sing, Ray would take his place for him. Thats right; he played the organ, keyboard-bass, AND sang at the smae time!!
Ray's also pretty much the studliest person to ever wear Ray Bans, period.
T: "Ray Manzarek is the most intense guy in the world."
M: "He's gotta butt-chin and sum massive sideburns."
T: "Bet he's hung like a camel though!"

Get the Ray Manzarek mug.
The amazing keyboardist for the classic rock band, The Doors. With his fellow student Jim Morrison and John Densmore and Robbie Kriger he formed a group which was in 1965 christened The Doors. The name was taken from Aldous Huxley's book on mescaline, The Doors of Perception, which quoted William Blake's poem (If the doors of perception were cleansed / All things would appear infinite)
Ray Manzarek with his piano skills are very apparent in "The River Knows"
