Ray Manzarek, a founding Member of The Doors, has died at age 74.
The keyboardist succumbed this afternoon (Monday) at the RoMed Clinic in Rosenheim, Germany, where he was being treated for bile duct cancer. He was surrounded by his wife of 46 years, Dorothy Manzarek, and his brothers Rick and James Manzarek.
Just last week, Doors guitarist Robby Krieger told us Ray was sick, but was hoping to play a show they had scheduled in Los Angeles in August. He has issued a statement saying, "I was deeply saddened to hear about the passing of my friend and bandmate Ray Manzarek today. I'm just glad to have been able to have played Doors songs with him for the last decade. Ray was a huge part of my life, and I will always miss him."
In addition to his wife and brothers, Manzarek is survived by his son Pablo, his daughter-in-law Sharmin and their three children. Funeral arrangements are pending. The family asks that its privacy be respected at this time. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in Ray's name to Stand Up 2 Cancer at StandUp2Cancer.org.

Janet Jackson's so-called retirement didn't last long -- she now says she's working on new music for the first time in more than five years.
Miss Jackson tells Billboard that fans shouldn't believe stories that she'd ditched her career and moved to the Middle East with new hubby Wissam Al Mana. She says, "I am working on a new project now. We are creating the concept and initial thoughts on the music. I am excited about the direction we are taking. I don't want to rush it… I don't want to put a time constraint on the creative process."
Janet's last album was 2008's Discipline, which debuted at number-one but sold a disappointing 449,000 copies overall.
