Less than a month after his death comes a new album from Doors keyboardist Ray
. Twisted Tales is Manzarek's third album with slide guitar player Roy Rogers and it's currently in stores.
These were Manzarek's last recordings and Rogers says, "Before Ray left for Germany [where he passed away], we had both signed off on the artwork and agreed to release it sooner than later. Obviously we thought that Ray was coming back from his travels, and so I’m proceeding with the release. That is what we wanted to do, and that’s what both Ray and I agreed to do... I dedicated it to Ray’s memory. We were both really proud of this recording. It’s going to be very interesting to see how people react to this. Now that Ray is gone, it’s a little weird for me to release something. But I figured that this was the best way to honor Ray. I hope people enjoy it."
Manzarek died of cancer on May 20th. He was 74.
