    Ray Manzarek -- who co-founded "The Doors" with Jim Morrison in 1965 and played keyboard -- has died, this according to the band's official Facebook page.

    Manzarek was 74.

    According to the website, Manzarek passed away today at the RoMed Clinic in Rosenheim, Germany after a lengthy battle with bile duct cancer.

    Morrison/Manzarek was always considered the classic art/commerce duality. But Manzarek created much of the Doors' sound, and was among the best if not the best farsifa organist during the 1960s. R.I.P.

    Produced the first few X albums, too.

    Damn. I'm not a Doors fan in general, but he was terrific. RIP.
