A very Happy Birthday to blues legend & favorite of The Doors, @MuddyWatersOfficial! 🎁
Growing up in Chicago, Ray Manzarek had a great appreciation for Muddy. He told @NPR how an appreciation for Muddy & the blues, jazz artists like Miles Davis & John Coltrane, flamenco, surf rock, & beatnik poetry became “the blend of The Doors as the sun is setting into the Pacific Ocean at the end, the terminus of Western civilization.”
Have you heard The Doors cover of Muddy Waters’ “Close To You” off the album ‘Absolutely Live’?
