“I was deeply saddened to hear about the passing of my friend and bandmate Ray Manzarek today. I’m just glad to have been able to have played Doors songs with him for the last decade. Ray was a huge part of my life and I will always miss him.” ― Robby Krieger.
February 12, 1939 - ∞.
I do not want to go through the next 10 or 20 years watching my idols, people I love and admire, and even just figureheads of the 1960s scene die. I cannot handle this. The fact that this is basically what life will be like from now on is unacceptable.

“Ray Manzarek, keyboardist and founding member of The Doors, passed away today at 12:31PM PT at the RoMed Clinic in Rosenheim, Germany after a lengthy battle with bile duct cancer. He was 74. At the time of his passing, he was surrounded by his wife Dorothy Manzarek, and his brothers Rick and James Manczarek.”
