“Jim’s whole Shaman thing only became apparent later after people wrote books about us. To us he was just the frontman” Robby Krieger
Well not quite mate as this all started with Ray Manzarek's opportunistic manipulations of Morrison using the phrases he threw out to feed the media and gain attention.
It's true Jim was interested in this stuff and read books on it but he would be appalled to see himself becoming some kind of Hippy Prophet with Ray as his high priest.
The Dionysus and Shaman bullshit can be traced back to ONE source and that source played keys for The Doors. Same as a lot of the bullshit rumours of Jim may be alive and his grave will be moved. When Ray saw a chance to make a buck or get some attention he could not care less that he was tarnishing his old mate and now meal ticket for life.
