Ray Manzarek, bass player for The Doors, is dead.

Ok, he was the keyboard player. However: The Doors never had a bass player and Manzarek did almost all the bass work with his Fender Rhodes electric piano (aided by his amazing coordination.) The Doors L.A. Woman was the first Doors record to feature a bass player, Jerry Scheff, who was one of Elvis Presley's backing musicians. No one here gets out alive, man.
