Musician Ray Manzarek, keyboard player of The Doors, died today in a hospital in Germany. He was 74. Manzarek’s chance meeting with Jim Morrison at Venice Beach 1965 led to the band’s formation. The band fell apart after Morrison’s death, and in the past decade or so, Manzarek had toured with guitar player Robby Krieger. KCRW’s Steve Chiotakis spoke about Manzarek’s legacy with Krieger, as well as Bill Siddons, who managed the Doors from 1968 to 1972.
