Unhappy Ray Manzarek passes away at age 74

From The Doors Facebook page:
Quote:
Ray Manzarek, Founding Member of The Doors, Passes Away at 74

Ray Manzarek, keyboardist and founding member of The Doors, passed away today at 12:31PM PT at the RoMed Clinic in Rosenheim, Germany 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.

Manzarek is best known for his work with The Doors who formed in 1965 when Manzarek had a chance encounter on Venice Beach with poet Jim Morrison. The Doors went on to become one of the most controversial rock acts of the 1960s, selling more than 100-million albums worldwide, and receiving 19 Gold, 14 Platinum and five multi-Platinum albums in the U.S. alone. "L.A.Woman," "Break On Through to the Other Side," "The End," "Hello, I Love You," and "Light My Fire" were just some of the band's iconic and ground-breaking songs. After Morrison's death in 1971, Manzarek went on to become a best-selling author, and a Grammy-nominated recording artist in his own right. In 2002, he revitalized his touring career with Doors' guitarist and long-time collaborator, Robby Krieger.

"I was deeply saddened to hear about the passing of my friend and bandmate Ray Manzarek today," said Krieger. "I'm just glad to have been able to have played Doors songs with him for the last decade. Ray was a huge part of my life and I will always miss him."

Manzarek is survived by his wife Dorothy, brothers Rick and James Manczarek, son Pablo Manzarek, Pablo's wife Sharmin and their three children Noah, Apollo and Camille. Funeral arrangements are pending. The family asks that their privacy be respected at this difficult time. In lieu of flowers, please make a memoriam donation in Ray Manzarek's name at www.standup2cancer.org
I love The Doors! This is so sad! RIP Ray.

The Doors were one I used to love to sing a long to. Those key boards were great. RIP

RIP. The Doors were one of the first bands I got into, and Manzarek's style is amazing.

Man I'm so happy I got to see him from like 20 feet away within the last few years.

This is the death for music that affected me the most that I can remember (sorry Slayer didn't have a affect for me)

Damn a lot of good music people are passing away

One good thing my parents did was play a lot of good music and the Doors was one of them. LA Woman and Strange Days are in my top 50 albums of all time; Ray was an awesome keyboardist and as a kid and now I love what he added to some classic Doors songs.


RIP Ray
