Rock & roll and drugs

In Uncategorized on 17/11/2017 at 7:09 am

“Rock and roll was not inspired by drugs. Back in the 60s people were smoking hemp, a mild intoxicant. All it did was open the doors of perception…That’s where the music came from.” – Ray Manzarek

He was member of the Doors.

The band took their name from the title of Aldous Huxley’s book The Doors of Perception, itself derived from a line in William Blake’s The Marriage of Heaven and Hell: “If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is: infinite”.

  1. For the Doors, the drug was Jim Morrison. Whatever else Ray Manzarek smoked, it don’t matter. LOL!
