I think he thought he was asking an intriguing question that might lead to an interesting answer... It didn't work out, lol!
Another guy asked, "What was the weirdest time you had with Jim?" Ray responded, "OH! You BLEW it! If you would've asked 'What was the most philosophical time, or the funniest time, or the closest moment'..."
Another guy walked around repeating to anyone who would listen, "Ray Manzarek, fuckin' legend, at Shank Hall!" while shaking his head in respectful and amazed disbelief.
Ray chatted and signed autographs outside before walking in the front door, then right by me through the tiny venue. I can't really describe how surreal it was to see in an intimate setting. You could walk right up to the stage anytime.
It was incredible to me.
