Ray Manzarek, Keyboardist for The Doors, Dead at 74

wow just wow



I know at 74 his life wasn't exactly cut short. But he was still a strong creative force and I wonder how much more music was still inside him.
Not only was he an amazing keyboardist but he also laid down some of the coolest bass lines in rock. He truly understood the roll of the bass and how to use it to bridge rhythm and melody.
I often referred to his left hand as one of my favorite bass players.
Ray Manzarek is an icon that will be missed.
