Reaction to the death of Ray Manzarek, the keyboardist and co-founder of The Doors, have started to come in. Manzarek died Monday in Germany where he was undergoing treatment for cancer. He was 74.
Doors drummer John Densmore: "There was no keyboard player on the planet more appropriate to support Jim Morrison's words. Ray, I felt totally in sync with you musically. It was like we were of one mind, holding down the foundation for Robby Krieger and Jim to float on top of. I will miss my musical brother."
Joe Perry: "Incredibly sad news. There is no doubt in my mind Ray and his talent had a great deal to do with what I do today. I will always regret not getting to tell him that to his face."
Benmont Tench, keyboardist in Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers: "His playing showed me the path to, and the joy of, improvisation. Indescribably important. Rest well. Rest well..."
Michael McDonald: "Ray was an obviously integral ingredient and participant in the creative process and resulting music of The Doors. His creative stamp is all over their songs, arrangements and recording process. He leaves us with a profoundly unique contribution to American popular music."
Tommy Shaw of Styx: "I'm very sad to hear about the passing of Ray Manzarek. The blatant sexuality of Jim Morrison's persona standing firmly on Manzarek's exotic and distinct musical bedrock must have caused a lot of sleepless nights for parents of the young fans who were attracted to it all. Always a keen observer and spokesman for the times we live in, he will most certainly be missed."
Weird Al Yankovic: "I had the extreme honor of working with Mr. Ray Manzarek at Jerry Harrison's Sausalito Sound recording studio in 2009. He played keyboards on my song 'Craigslist,' which is a pastiche of The Doors... The Sausalito session was one of the absolute high points of my life -- Ray was amazing. This video documents him learning to play 'Craigslist' in the studio. R.I.P. Ray."
