Damn!

Ray Manzarek, a founding member of The Doors whose versatile and often haunting keyboards complimented Jim Morrison’s gloomy baritone and helped set the mood for some of rock’s most enduring songs, has died. He was 74.

And Manzarek had chops enough to play keyboards while being the other half of the rhythm section usually comprised of bass / drums.  Sad loss.
