[center]Ray Manzarek of The Doors dies at 74 after battle with cancer[/center]
Ray Manzarek, keyboardist and founding member of The Doors, died Monday in Germany after a long battle with cancer, according to a statement on the iconic band’s Facebook page. He was 74.

Manzarek formed the group — whose worldwide hits included “Light My Fire” and “L.A. Woman” — with Jim Morrison in 1965 after the two met by chance in Venice Beach, California.

He died surrounded by his wife Dorothy and brothers Rick and James in a clinic in Rosenheim, Germany after “a lengthy battle with bile duct cancer,” said the statement.

“I was deeply saddened to hear about the passing of my friend and bandmate Ray Manzarek today,” The Doors’ guitarist and long-time collaborator Robby Krieger was quoted as saying.

The Doors were a great band. I still listen to the oldies now and then.
