Ray Manzarek

Greatly Appreciated

Ray Manzarek  (February 12, 1939 – May 20, 2013) was an American musician, singer, producer, film director, and author, best known as a founding member and keyboardist of The Doors from 1965 to 1973.  He was a co-founding member of Nite City from 1977 to 1978, and of Manzarek–Krieger from 2001 to his death.  (More from Wikipedia)
Bruce Joyner connected with keyboardist Ray Manzarek (formerly of the Doors) and helped out on the recording sessions for the X album Under the Big Black Sun.  Joyner left the Unknowns in 1983; when he began recording the full-length album Swimming with Friends (with his new band the Plantations) in 1986, Manzarek and X guitarist John Doe both lent a hand.
