Ray ManzarekI suppose if Jack Kerouac had never written On the Road, The Doors would never have existed. It opened the floodgates and we read everything we could get our hands on -- Howl, Allen Ginsberg; Gasoline, Gregory Corso; A Coney Island of the Mind, Lawrence Ferlinghetti; Peyote Poem, Michael McClure...
All mind-benders, soul-twisters, heart-openers, foot-tappers, bone-crushers, eye-wideners... and general fine things. I suggest you read them all.
