But the Doors have a bit (a bit!) more cachet in musician circles, in large part because of Ray Manzarek, the founding member and keyboardist who died from bile-duct cancer in Germany yesterday at 74. What if we pushed for a paradigm shift—what if we stopped equating the Doors with Morrison and started equating them instead with Manzarek? If we could simply tolerate Morrison's presence—when he's not off on some bullshit, he's actually a pretty solid lead singer—rather than foreground it to the point that we can't get past it? The Doors are an awesome band. Let's walk through some examples.
