music-ray-manzarekNews broke last night that Ray Manzarek, a founding member of The Doors, has passed.

Ray will forever be remembered for his iconic organ intro on ‘Light My Fire’ (or even better – ‘Break On Through’) and his incredible contribution to all the Doors records. For this writer, having a band like the Doors without a bass player was a complete mystery  of how they made it work and Ray was that mystery. His atmospheric, era defining style was as crucial to the Door’s success and appeal as any of Jim’s lyrics, Robby’s riffs and John’s beats.

Rest In Peace Ray.
