not to mention L.A. Woman, Riders on the Storm, Love Me Two Times, Strange Days, and so many more. This man was a GENIUS.
Just saw this on the news
Ray Manzarek was a groundbreaker for keyboards in rock music, and his influence will live on.
the doors were such an influence for me muscially- Jim died days before i was born and i have read tonnes on them as a band- it was some crazy times! his music will live on- rip ray- say hi to Mr MOJO rising up there for us....
Oh my god!!
In addition to his role in early classic rock, he was also rocksteady producer for one of the most brilliant (musically and lyrically) bands ever to come out of the United States: X
Two of their albums, 1979's Los Angeles and 1981's Wild Gift are usual suspects in "Greatest Album of all Time" lists although my favorite work of theirs was 1983's More Fun in the New World.
Rest in Peace Ray
He had many great accomplishments....and he also played the organ on Weird Al's "Craigslist", which I didn't know until a few weeks ago.

There are now reports that his death is a hoax: http://en.mediamass.net/people/ray-m...deathhoax.html
When I'm old, I don't want them to say of me, "She's so charming." I want them to say, "Be careful, I think she's armed."

^Not from very credible sources though. I'm not so sure it's a hoax...
Not a hoax, I wish it were. RIP Ray, you musical genius, you.

So sad...may he RIP.
My thoughts and prayers go out to all his family, friends and fans.
I loved The Doors. My brother was lucky enough to have seen them live.
Peace & Love, Gypsy
