    What can be said... one of the greatest bands of all time. As much as we think of jim Morrison when talking of the doors, Ray's keyboards were so signature of their sound. The intro and solo on light my fire, the psychedelic sound of crystal ship and the piano on riders on the storm. The stuff of legends.

    Unfortunately Jim got all the attention, Ray was a great part of a great band.

    Very sad news. Apart from being in such a great band he was a really nice guy as well.

    Totally agree. I think Morrison's persona tends to put a lot of people off the Doors, which is a pity because their music was often superb.

    They were a great bunch of musicians in my opinion, and it was Ray Manzerak's keyboard work which gave them their really unique sound.

    RIP Ray.
