Sad News: Ray Manzarek R.I.P

Indeed, a sad bit of news today as keyboardist and founding member of The Doors Ray Manzarek has passed after a lengthy battle with cancer. He was 74. One of the most influential and controversial bands to come out of the 60’s, The Doors were probably my first favorite classic rock band and most definitely my introduction to the ideas and concepts of  “stoner rock”. The accolades Ray and The Doors have received are immense, and a proper write up can be found here, but I’ll just rest easy for now, hit play and immerse myself within  the psychedelic sounds that helped shape the biggest generational change in American history. Rest In Peace, Ray.
