American rock group The Doors arrive at London Airport in 1968, they are, from left to right; John Densmore, Bobby Krieger, Jim Morrison (1943 - 1971) and Ray Manzarek.

Ray Manzarek: Keyboard player at the heart of the dark, brooding sound of The Doors

The keyboard player and songwriter Ray Manzarek was a founder-member of the Doors, the Los Angeles group who seemed to embody the possibilities, contradictions and limitations of the rock medium more than any other in the late Sixties.

This added to the mystique around the group, who have sold over 100m albums and been the subject of several documentaries, and Oliver Stone's biopic (Kyle MacLachlan portrayed Manzarek).
