Ray Manzarek

The man behind those iconic keys on The Doors classic records, Ray Manzarek, has passed away. From The Doors twitter:

...After a lengthy battle with bile duct cancer. He was 74. At the time of his passing, he was surrounded by his wife Dorothy Manzarek, and his brothers Rick and James Manczarek.

The man laid his keyboard and bass sounds (usually at the same time) to all of the band's LPs, as well as being a producer and writer for projects as wide-ranging as jazz LPs to Wierd Al Yankovic.

RIP Ray Manzarek, though your unique sound with The Doors will always signify some of the most important records of the era. Check out some classic songs by The Doors below.
