Post R.I.P. Ray Manzarek
Well I just read that Ray Manzarek, innovative keyboarder and "the brain" for the legendary rock band "The Doors" just died at age 74 after losing a long battle with cancer.

He was very influential and motivated many fellow musicians to just go for it.

R.I.P. Ray Manzarek, your work will remain forever.

Was just reading about this. I think this is one of those bands where the singer's notoriety unfortunately overshadows the fact that the other members are daring and proficient in their own right. I can't imagine a version of The Doors that doesn't have this guy in it.

The temptation is to like what you should like--not what you do like... another temptation is to come up with an interesting reason for liking it that may not actually be the reason you like it.

RIP Mazarek!. The Doors was one of my favourite rock bands in my youth even Morrison was already dead but still pretty much a legend

I'm a huge Doors fan. Manzarek was hands-down one of the great keyboard players in rock history.
