Ray Manzarek, a founding member of 1960s rock group The Doors, has died at the age of 74.
The keyboard player died in Rosenheim, Germany, with his family at his bedside following a battle with bile duct cancer.
He and singer Jim Morrison formed The Doors in 1965 after a chance meeting at Venice Beach in Los Angeles.
The Doors' original line-up, which also included drummer John Densmore and guitarist Robbie Krieger, was only together for a few years and made just six studio albums.
But the band retained a large and obsessive following long after Morrison's death, aged 27, in 1971 of a suspected heart attack.

Great shame. And what is more of a shame, is that the news was initially treated as a hoax, due to the idiots who keep starting these fake death news items on twitter and facebook.

RIP Ray.

Didn't hear about the false hoax stories (fortunately) as I'm not a "social" person! As you say, a great shame.

Rick Wakeman didn't rate his solo keyboard piece in Riders on the Storm but it always sounded OK to me.

RIP Ray.
