Poet, playwright and novelist Michael McClure and the late Ray Manzarek, keyboardist for The Doors, met at The Doors’ third recording session.
Their spoken work / jazz collaboration spanned thirty years. During that time they performed together throughout the United States, and released several CDs and a DVDs.
I took charge of their website over 13 years ago. During that time, the site has had several different incarnations. In 2014 we unveiled a radical new design, which you can see here.
This site neatly organizes information about Michael and Ray individually, as well as their collaborations. It also includes writings by some friends, and features a mailing list so that visitors can be notified of upcoming events, as well as additions to the website.
