Ray Manzarek dies aged 74: The Doors keyboard player passes away after cancer battle

Ray Manzarek, keyboard player and founding member of The Doors, died today after a long battle with bile duct cancer. He was 74.

His manager said he died this afternoon in Rosenheim, Germany surrounded by his wife Dorothy Manzarek, and brothers Rick and James.

Manzarek is best known for his work with The Doors who formed in 1965 when Manzarek had a chance encounter on Venice Beach with poet Jim Morrison.

The Doors went on to become one of the most controversial rock acts of the 1960s, selling more than 100 million albums worldwide.

L.A.Woman, Break On Through to the Other Side, The End, Hello, I Love You" and Light My Fire were just some of the band's iconic and ground-breaking songs.

After Morrison's death in 1971, Manzarek went on to become a best-selling author, and a Grammy-nominated recording artist in his own right.

In 2002, he revitalised his touring career with Doors' guitarist and long-time collaborator, Robby Krieger.

"I was deeply saddened to hear about the passing of my friend and bandmate Ray Manzarek today," said Krieger.

"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."

Manzarek is survived by his wife Dorothy, brothers Rick and James Manczarek, son Pablo Manzarek, Pablo's wife Sharmin and their three children Noah, Apollo and Camille.

Funeral arrangements are pending. In lieu of flowers, please make a memoriam donation in Ray Manzarek's name at www.standup2cancer.org
