It’s a sad day for The Doors fans because its founder and keyboard player Ray Manzarek has passed away. Manzarek died on Monday at a clinic in Rosenheim, Germany after years of battling with bile duct cancer. He was 74.
Today’s generation probably doesn’t have that much idea about who Manzarek is but he was one of the most influential persons in rock music. He founded The Doors with his schoolmate Jim Morrison in 1965 and together they made great music. Manzarek made a huge impact to his fans with the rhythmic, slinky, hypnotic and surging sound of his keyboard.
