I missed this yesterday, but there's no way I can let it go completely without mention.
The Doors have always been one of my favorite bands. They were something unique in music: darkness, mystery, hedonism, mythology, poetry, and an appreciation for Los Angeles as the edge of Western civilization in all its grotesque glory. Morrison of course died decades ago, but Doors co-founder Ray Manzarek succumbed to cancer on Sunday, taking with him the heart and spirit of one of the greatest rock'n'roll bands in history, but leaving behind plenty of great music.
Here's The Crystal Ship.
