THE DOORS keyboardist RAY MANZAREK has slammed director OLIVER STONE for misrepresenting his band in the 1991 biopic of the band. Manzarek, 68, claims Stone's THE DOORS painted an "over-sensationalised" picture of late singer JIM MORRISON, and missed the point the psychedelic rockers were trying to make. Manzarek says, "He over-sensationalised. I don't think he knew what psychedelia was all about. "(Mind-altering drug) LSD opens the doors of perception, and once you step through, you never want to go back, because you realise you've been in a closed state of mind. "What a joyous state! We made music from that perception. He missed that entirely."
