    Ray Manzarek dead at 74

    When I was a kid I listened to a lot of my parent's music and became a fan of the Doors. Apparently he'd been battling cancer for some time.

    RIP. He kept the Doors' music alive after Jim Morrison's death.

        OK, another "senior" moment? When I was a kid I was buying Soft Parade, Morrison Hotel, and Absolutely Live at a department store in NJ called E. J. Korvette's. Then we'd get 'em home and play 'em until we wore then out.

        Damn good years! Still have those albums on my MP3.

          I was surprised at his age (74). Where does the time go? He will live on in some of the most iconic rock music ever written.
          Just another tricky day. C5/6 incomplete, 43 years out.

          You'll get through.

                Ha, I was born in 1971 and ended up buying those releases on cassette so I could have portable music. Those were good years because a lot of great music came out in a relatively short period of time, for a lot of bands. The Doors were pumping out albums for only what, maybe five years? And yet their music changed quite a bit between their debut album and LA Woman.

                "No One Here Gets out Alive" is probably the best rock biography on The Doors, but another good read is "Wonderland Avenue Tales of Glamour and Excess". It's the biography of Danny Sugarman and his fight with heroin addiction, but gives a lot of information about what happened to The Doors after Morrison's death.
