There is an old saying that goes, “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.”
I believe that’s true. I certainly admire Andy Warhol, David Letterman, Hue Hefner and Lady Gaga for what they have achieved in their chosen fields.
If the Old Soldier could achieve only %1 of the success they have achieved in their fields in his chosen field (blogging), he would be a happy man.
These four people have had a great impact on the content and the look of this blog.

Raymond Manzarek is dead. He was 74 years old. I got the news last night from the radio. He and Jim Morrison founded The Doors in the Summer of 1965 on Venice Beach in L.A. California.
I heard The Doors for the first time in 1967. I was recently back from Vietnam. I was having a beer in a bar in a PX (Post Exchange which was something like a mall for military personnel) when Light My Fire came blasting out of the jukebox. I cannot express to you how different the song was from everything else on the airways.
Ray Manzarek played the keyboards in the band. The Doors did not have a bass player. Manzarek played a keyboard bass with his left hand.

The sound of Manzarek’s organ, John Densmore’s drumming, Robby Krieger’s guitar and Morrison’s vocals made their first three albums unique in rock and roll. And although The Door’s released only six studio albums, it’s the first three that guarantee the band rock and rock immortality.
Ray Manzarek was at the very center of the storm that was The Doors.
