From CNN:
Quote:
The Doors' founding keyboardist, Ray Manzarek, died in Germany Monday after a long fight with cancer, his publicist said in a statement. He was 74.

The artist had been diagnosed with bile duct cancer.

The Doors formed in 1965 after Manzarek happened to meet Jim Morrison on California's Venice Beach. The legendary rock group went on to sell 100 million albums worldwide, establishing five multiplatinum discs in the U.S.
Ray will be missed. The man was a wizard with the keyboard and was critical to the success of The Doors. Listening to him talk about the founding of the band was mesmerizing; the man had an amazing voice and a talent for telling an engaging story.

Sad to hear, one of my favorites. In Jim's words,
This is the end
Beautiful friend
This is the end

"I realize that somebody playing free music isn't as commercial as a hamburger stand. But is it because you can eat a hamburger and hold it in your hand and you can't do that with music? Is it too free to control?" - Don Van Vliet (aka Captain Beefheart) discussing commercial success in the music biz
