    Just saw this on the news

    Ray Manzarek was a groundbreaker for keyboards in rock music, and his influence will live on.

    RIP, Ray.

    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...

    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
    Even a man who is pure in heart and says his prayers by night, may become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms and the autumn moon is bright.
