If I had to select one of my favorite rock and roll groups it would have to be “The Doors.”
I was really sad to see Jim Morrison die so young. He had such tremendous talent. Who can ever forget “Light My Fire?”
Now, Ray Mansarek has died from bile duct cancer. Manzarek became an enduring symbol of the era — he was portrayed by Kyle McLachlan in the 1991 Oliver Stone biopic The Doors, and wrote a best-selling memoir about his experiences, Light My Fire: My Life with The Doors, in 1998.
He can now join the rest of the stars in Rock and Roll Heaven!
