RAY MANZAREK, DOORS KEYBOARDIST, RIP 1939-2013
Doors keyboardist Ray Manzarek passes at age 74 due to bile duct cancer. Once was asked "Why use the Vox Continental Organ"? (cheesy organ popular in the '60s.) He said it was the only organ that was flat, and could hold the Fender Rhodes bass keyboard on top. Doors didn't have a bassist, so there you go. It was a practical matter. I remember practicing HOURS trying to learn that "circus big top theme" intro on "Light My Fire".
