I saw the Doors in 1967 and while it was among the worst concerts I ever saw in the 60s (and I saw practically EVERYONE in the 60s) , I can still see Ray playing that night.
I then met Ray here in LA in the 80s and he was very nice... very cordial, taking the time to explain to me how he and another guy in the studio hassled to manipulate a pedal of some sort (Fender bender maybe) to get the bending organ sound on the Unknown Soldier session. It was one of those things they spent a couple of hours trying to figure out how to work into the song.
The night I met him, he, Robby, and John were also there with about ten other of us. A relatively small bunch, sitting on tables and the floor. Robby and John were a little quiet when I started asking about session stuff... but Ray excitedly got right into it as if it happened yesterday.
