It’s the kind of memorial rock stars dream of … famed Sunset Strip nightclub Whisky a Go Go — where The Doors got their start back in the 60s — will be honoring Ray Manzarek on its marquee for the rest of the week, TMZ has learned.
A rep for the famed rock club tells us, the marquee memorial will stay up tonight through Saturday — and every show in the meantime will be dedicated in Manzarek’s honor.
The rep says the club will also be briefly “going dark” tonight at 8pm in remembrance.
As we reported, Manzarek — one of the founding members of the iconic rock band — passed away today following a long battle with bile duct cancer. He was 74.
The Doors were playing as the house band at the Whisky — opening for acts like Van Morrison — when a record exec discovered them and gave the band their first big record deal.

BIkers Against Child Abuse Helps Make Abused Children Feel Safe Again
“A biker’s power and intimidating image can even the playing field for a little kid who has been hurt. If the man who hurt this little girl calls or drives by, or even if she is just scared, another nightmare, the bikers will ride over and stand guard all night.
If she is afraid to go to school, they will take her and watch until she’s safely inside.
And if she has to testify against her abuser in court, they will go, too, walking with her to the witness stand and taking over the first row of seats.”
During one such testimony, a little boy sat on the stand, testifying against his abusive father, who sat less than 10 feet away.
“Why didn’t you say anything before now?” Asked the prosecutor.
“I was scared.” The little boy replied, honestly.
“Why aren’t you scared now, what changed?” The prosecutor watched the little boy closely as he pointed to the front row of seats in the court room.
“Because my friends are scarier than he is.”
shit like this makes me have faith in humanity again.

Anonymous asked: i was sort of under the impression it was more serious from the way you talked about her, ha ha
By serious you mean that you thought we’d been together longer? Because rest assured it is pretty serious despite only being together a couple of months.

Anonymous asked: Since you don't want to share her url, would you mind if I asked you a question intended for her? I am also in a relationship to a guy who is 21 years older, how did she tell people about you like her family? Was she judged or anything?
She hasn’t told her family yet. That’s a bridge that might have to get crossed relatively soon. Her friends have given her some shit about it but in a teasing way.
