Today marks a very sad loss for the music world. Ray Manzarek, founding member of The Doors, passed away an hour and a half ago in Germany. He lost his battle against bile duct cancer, and as a huge Doors fan, I’m pretty torn up about it.
While this blog is devoted to the world of horror films, we can all appreciate truly great musicians that not only did something great for their time but were able to create something that continued to influence new generations over the course of 40 years and beyond.
We’ve all talked and gushed over Jim, but spin an album tonight for Ray. Every time you hear those keyboards in Light My Fire, let his spirit live on. We’ll love and miss ya Ray, hope you’re already sharing a cold one with Jim.
