Ray Interview Illinois Entertainer

Jim Cherry- The Doors Examiner
On the eve of his 73rd birthday former Chicagoan Ray Manzarek and co-founder, keyboardist of The Doors has a cover story and interview in the February 2012 Illinois Entertainer.
You can either say, "On the eve of his 73rd birthday, former Chicagoan and co-founder/keyboardist of The Doors, Ray Manzarek, has a cover story and interview in the ....", or you can say "On the eve of his 73rd birthday, former Chicagoan Ray Manzarek, co-founder and keyboardist of The Doors, has a story and interview in the ...".
The way you have it written is illogical. You need commas. The part in red is the problem.
On another note, what kind of story does Ray make for? Ray is good at writing stories about himself, but I don't think others know Ray enough to write about him. Perhaps 'Cover Story' is just a term for a high profie interview.
P.S. As a point to show how many media people have no clue, consider all those who referred to Ray and Robby's band as 'The Doors' and/or that Ian Astbury was the new singer for 'The Doors'.

The way that it is written now, it tells us that the interview is with two different people (i.e. Ray Manzarek and the co-founder of The Doors). If Ray and the co-founder are the same person, you don't need to use the word 'and' after Ray's name.
