TMZ’s Harvey Levin Has A Great Ray Manzarek Story

TMZ’s Harvey Levin is just one of many people to tell you what a friendly and decent man Ray Manzarek of The Doors was. And Harvey has a very funny story to tell about his first meeting with Ray Manzarek, about 15 years ago. It seems that when Harvey Levin purchased a home in the West Hollywood Hills, it was sort of a fixer-upper, that needed a ton of work. Harvey levin had called a number of companies looking for estimates to repair things such as the garage doors. Ray Manzarek was a friendly neighbor who had a home in the neighborhood and just wanted to greet his new neighbor. Ray Manzarek came over and introduced himself as “Ray Manzarek from The Doors”, and Harvey Levin replied that he must have called him over for an “estimate on the garage doors”. Manzarek replied, “No, I’m from The Doors”, and Levin again replied, “Yeah, I called you for an estimate”. Finally Harvey Levin realized who Ray Manzarek was, and Ray Manzarek had a big laugh over the misunderstanding and they became good friends for many years. In March Levin finally put the house up for sale for $5.3 milion dollars. He must have found someone other than Ray Manzarek to repair those garage doors afterall….

They say that location is everything too. Harvey Levin’s home is a Spanish style, just like mine, but at 3,000 square feet, it’s smaller than my home. Yet, it’s location makes it worth $5.3 million, while my home is worth considerably less money. Real estate is all about location, location, location…
