"If you're working with words, it's got to be poetry. I grew up with [the books of Jack] Kerouac. If he hadn't wrote On The Road, the Doors would have never existed. Morrison read On The Road down in Florida, and I read it in Chicago. That sense of freedom, spirituality, and intellectuality in On The Road — that's what I wanted in my own work". ~ Ray Manzarek keyboard player of 'The Doors'.
"I read On the Road in maybe 1959. It changed my life like it changed everyone else's". ~ Bob Dylan
