    Ray Manzarek, Founding Member of The Doors, Passes Away at 74


    Ray Manzarek, keyboardist and founding member of The Doors, passed away today at 12:31PM PT at the RoMed Clinic in Rosenheim, Germany after a lengthy battle with bile duct cancer. He was 74. At the time of his passing, he was surrounded by his wife Dorothy Manzarek, and his brothers Rick and James Manczarek.

    Manzarek is best known for his work with The Doors who formed in 1965 when Manzarek had a chance encounter on Venice Beach with poet Jim Morrison. The Doors went on to become one of the most controversial rock acts of the 1960s, selling more than 100-million albums worldwide, and receiving 19 Gold, 14 Platinum and five multi-Platinum albums in the U.S. alone. "L.A.Woman," "Break On Through to the Other Side," "The End," "Hello, I Love You," and "Light My Fire" were just some of the band's iconic and ground-breaking songs. After Morrison's death in 1971, Manzarek went on to become a best-selling author, and a Grammy-nominated recording artist in his own right. In 2002, he revitalized his touring career with Doors' guitarist and long-time collaborator, Robby Krieger.

    "I was deeply saddened to hear about the passing of my friend and bandmate Ray Manzarek today," said Krieger. "I'm just glad to have been able to have played Doors songs with him for the last decade. Ray was a huge part of my life and I will always miss him."

    Manzarek is survived by his wife Dorothy, brothers Rick and James Manczarek, son Pablo Manzarek, Pablo's wife Sharmin and their three children Noah, Apollo and Camille. Funeral arrangements are pending. The family asks that their privacy be respected at this difficult time. In lieu of flowers, please make a memoriam donation in Ray Manzarek's name at www.standup2cancer.org

    Good night funnyman.

    Great musician. I had a high school teacher who got into a fistfight with him one night not long after the Doors split. Ray was trying to keep the band going without Morrison and my teacher voiced his disapproval. Personally, I've heard performances where Morrison was so shitfaced that he would've been better off if he just sat in the audience. I heard a live show where Hendrix and Morrison actually got up together and played, and while I'm trying to hear what Jimi was doing Morrison is stumbling around screaming "fuck her in the ass" over and over again. :facepalm:

    Apparently is a very rare form of cancer and very deadly. Hereditary most likely but one way of getting is from a parasite. Eating undercooked fish in certain parts of Asia. Liver Fluke parasites exists in the fish when ingested can scar the Bile Ducts and cause cancer. So much for Stern's healthy living. Howard on his death bed. It was than damn fish dinner we ate at Daniel's with Molly and Jimmy.

    I just did a quick search on Google and apparently it is cancer of the bile duct.

    Without Ray The Doors would not have existed. Ray went to film school with Jim at UCLA and he is the guy who saw Morrisons ability to write lyrics and started the band with him. RIP
