Keyboard player of the legendary band THE DOORS, Ray Manzerick has passed away at the age of 74. The long rift he played on "RIDERS ON THE STORM" is my all-time favorite piece of music.

Great and underrated musician.  Overshadowed by Mr. Mojo Risin.

RIP Ray.

RIP. His music was what fueled the Doors. He and Morrison were on the same page very much like Lennon/McCartney, Jagger/Richard or Page/Plant.

Talented guy who had an overblown self-perception. To hear him talk, one would be led to believe that Ray was the Doors, and the other guys were his puppets. Fool in terms of the truth, truly talented musician and producer. Remember his work with X in the 1980's?

Interesting interview with him from 1998 that was re-broadcast on Friday's Fresh Air on NPR:

Palladia ran The Doors Live at the Bowl from 1968 the other night and I ended up watching most of it. Good stuff.
