RIP Ray Manzarek

I was highly influenced by the music and poetry of The Doors when I was growing up, so it is with great sadness that I'm writing this tribute post to Doors co-founder Ray Manzarek who passed away today at age 74


I listened to The Doors with my parents, and my fascination with the band was piqued by the 1991 film. Well that's putting it mildly. I was pretty obsessed for a while. I recall writing to my cousin who was serving in Iraq at the time and going on and on about The Doors. My teenage obsessions had little to do with what was actually popular at the time. 

So in honor of The Doors, here is a geeky tribute to Mr. Manzarek:
