Ray Manzarek, the keyboardist for The Doors, has died at age 74. Any condolences?

R.I.P. Ray Manzarek. The Doors is one of my all time favorite groups, and The Crystal Ship one of my favorite Doors songs.

Gee......

I went to college with Ray and Jim Morrison,
and it certainly reminds you of your mortality
when your peers begin to die around you.....

Once upon a time, Ray was shooting his student film,
and wanted to borrow the camera dolly that I had
very carefully built. I agreed to loan it to him. He
took it to the beach, immersed it in salt water all day
with the shots he was doing, and totally destroyed it!
Such is art---and the perks of fame, I guess.

RIP, Ray Manzarek.

Pretty good life for a rock star.

If I'm correct he is still largely regarded as "The" keyboardist in American rock. R.I.P.

As a music lover, he taught me that you don't always require a bass player.
(Ironically, as a bass player I hated him for that! wink)

RIP, Mr. M.

What a shock! I thought Ray and Robby and John would live forever... Well, Ray's artistry will live on, at least. What a loss, though. The Doors were one of a kind, one of the best of the 60s and early 70s groups, and Ray's contributions to their success jumped right out at us in Light My Fire and many others. I'll have to give my Doors albums a spin in Ray's memory. RIP, keyboard man.
