From CNN:
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.
