Ray Manzarek, 74, Keyboardist and a Founder of the Doors, Is Dead

MAY 20, 2013        NYT        By JON PARELES

as the keyboardist

and a songwriter for the Doors

(Manzarek) helped shape

one of the indelible bands

of the psychedelic era

 

(...)

 

Mr. Manzarek

founded the Doors in 1965

with the singer and lyricist

Jim Morrison,

whom he would describe

decades later as

“the personification

of the Dionysian impulse

each of us has inside.”

 

They would go on to recruit

the drummer John Densmore

and the guitarist Robby Krieger.

 

Mr. Manzarek

played a crucial role

in creating music

that was hugely popular

and widely imitated,

selling tens of millions

of albums.

 

It was a lean,

transparent sound

that could be swinging

haunted, meditative,

suspenseful or circuslike.

 

The Doors’ songs

were generally credited

to the entire group.

 

Long after the death

of Mr. Morrison in 1971,

the music of the Doors

remained synonymous

with the darker,

more primal impulses

unleashed by psychedelia.
