Everybody loved Ray.
The nicest, gentlest soul on the planet.
Morrison's death left Ray sad and confused as evidenced by their "other voices" tour, which we opened.
They searched for a Jim everywhere, as Queen looked for their new Freddie, but he never came.
Manzarek was a jazz poet who rhymed on his keyboards.
We(Flo and Eddie) sang on Ray's solo albums too.
I thoroughly enjoyed working with the man whose haunting chords shaped my adulthood.
He was a singular performer who never compromised his place in the Rock Pantheon for a quick buck.
Integrity. Hard to find these days.
A bright star has sputtered out today.
I feel the gravitational loss already.

Ray put out some kick-ass solo albums, too. I highly recommend The Golden Scarab (1974) and Love Her Madly (2006). Don't bother with the movie, Love Her Madly; it's pretty amateurish. The "soundtrack," though, is excellent.

Goddamit! Another one bites the...... :cry:

Ray and Robbie shaped the Doors from the start. Jim was lucky to have met them. I loved those minimal yet cool keyboards. A lot of people never liked the Doors, but I always thought they were different and cool.

Bye Ray. You were a good one.

Ray & Robbie had booked the Pacific Amp. again for the OC Fair, this summer. I did not have tickets but, with their low prices($45 - $15lawn) I'm sure I would have went, again.

That's not really a Facebook page. It's just a transcription of his Wikipedia article. He didn't create it or anything.

I think she died in 2008, or are you referring to someone else?

Edith Bunker was one of the greatest characters ever: she could rip you a new one, and all the time make you believe you ripped her a new one...

He was a bad man: a very bad man. As a 49ers fan, there were lots of times I wanted to wish him to the corn field...
