Raymond Daniel Manzarek, Jr., better known as Ray Manzarek, is an American musician, singer, producer, film director, writer, co-founder and keyboardist, he has a net worth of $55 million.

Raymond Daniel Manczarek, Jr., better known as Ray Manzarek (born February 12, 1939), is an American musician, singer, producer, film director, writer, co-founder and keyboardist of The Doors from 1965 to 1973, Nite City from 1977-1978 and Manzarek-Krieger since 2001.

Manzarek met drummer John Densmore and guitarist Robby Krieger at a Transcendental Meditation lecture. Densmore says, "There wouldn't be any Doors without Maharishi."

All in all it was a very depressing experience, but it gave us time to really get the music together."
