RIP Ray Manzarek
I've enjoyed The Doors from time to time, but the thing I remain fondest of Ray Manzarek for is his support of (and playing with) Los Angeles punk band X, whose best albums he produced; it was quite something at the time, for an "old-timer" to validate the unheard music. They stopped worked together for awhile, when X reached for the brass ring, but here he is performing "Nausea" onstage with them in 2010, so I guess they reconciled!
