Ray Manzarek On The Doors' "Live At The Bowl '68": "Those Four Guys Were The Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse!"With their second #1 single under their belt ("Hello, I Love You"; the first was "Light My Fire") the Doors were on top of the world, having realized all their dreams of becoming rock stars in just a few short years. "The best laid plans of mice and men had not gone astray yet," Manzarek muses. "We dreamed of putting a rock and roll band together on Venice Beach in the summer of 1965. This is now the summer of 1968 and we had attained the goal. We wanted to be as big as the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, and we had arrived at that place."
