I had the pleasure of meeting this thoughtful, well spoken, amazing member of the Doors, Ray Manzarek about 6 or 7 years ago. I interviewed him and Robby Krieger, thoroughly enjoyed every minute, and grew to admire Ray even more.
I'm very sad that he's gone now at age 74 after fighting cancer the last year or so.
Here's a great example of Ray's genius as he gives a brief history of how The Doors, and the song "Light My Fire" came together. While doing that, you'll hear how great a keyboard player he is. (Despite the fact that he says that he wasn't a great musician at the beginning.)
