I met Danny Zelisko shortly after I arrived in the valley in 1980 and we’ve been friends ever since. He’s brought every major artist you can think of to the valley since 1974 and I keep hammering him to write a book because he has SO many stories to tell.
Yesterday after hearing of the death of his friend Ray Manzerak of The Doors, we spoke not only of Ray, but somehow managed to weave our way through a story about James Brown and a plea to get that book written from me.
I’m ready to buy the first copy.
Here’s Danny with some great stories about Ray you’ve probably never heard before.
…and the last song Jim Morrison recorded with The Doors featuring a great introduction by Ray.
