Today, the great Ray Manzarek, American musician, singer, producer, film director, and author, best known as a keyboardist and co-founder of The Doors, would have turned 81. Manzarek recorded on every track of all eight Doors studio albums, and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993. Sadly we lost Ray on May 20, 2013, at the age of 74, after a battle with bile duct cancer.
