Synopsis: Third Mind Blues, directed by William Tyler Smith, is an exploration of the very unlikely musical collaboration between two American musical icons, Doors keyboardist, Ray Manzarek, and blues/slide guitarist and Johnny Lee Hooker producer, Roy Rogers, as they create their own unique “Twenty-First Century Blues.”

William Burroughs once said that when two creative minds come together to collaborate, a new “Third Mind” is created. Third Mind Blues allows the audience to experience something rarely seen, Ray and Roy’s behind-the-scenes creative process as it follows them from songwriting to recording to live performances. Unlike many music documentaries, Third Mind Blues, sensitively and uniquely captures the chemistry and emotional bond between Ray and Roy. It allows the audience to understand how and why these two very different personalities and musical souls collaborate so well together. Smith’s twenty-year personal friendship with Manzarek pays off and the audience will see another, more private side of these two musical icons.

Third Mind Blues is a visual tapestry of Ray and Roy’s unique and beautiful “Third Mind.”
