Ray Manzarek keyboard player and co-founder of "The Doors" with Jim Morrison in 1965 has died according to the band's official Facebook page. According to the website, Manzarek passed away today at the RoMed Clinic in Rosenheim, Germany after a lengthy battle with bile duct cancer. At the time of his death, Ray was surrounded by his wife Dorothy and his brothers Rick and James.
Along with Jim ... Ray and The Doors churned out some of the most iconic rock songs in history -- including, "L.A. Woman," "Break On Through to the Other Side," "The End," "Hello, I Love You," and "Light My Fire."
Doors' guitarist Robby Krieger released a statement saying, "I was deeply saddened to hear about the passing of my friend and bandmate Ray Manzarek."
He added, "I'm just glad to have been able to have played Doors songs with him for the last decade. Ray was a huge part of my life and I will always miss him."
According to the band's official Facebook page ... Ray's family has asked that in lieu of flowers, fans should make an in memoriam donation in Ray's name to Standup2cancer.org.
I pretty much believe this is the back cover of FACES, March issue since the pages followed
in my 3 ring binder. This page is on heavy stock more so than any other pages that lead me
to believe this is from a cover.
I've asked around on information of this article and a good friend at SickThings
came to the deduction this article is from Metal Rendezvous International.
I know the bottom folio have the initials MRV but I'm told they use
the word International in the issues.
If anyone has any other info it would be greatly appreciated.
Unfortunately another miscellaneous article.
I keep all my cut out Alice Cooper articles in clear sleeves place in 3 ring binders.
So there is some sort of order to them even if I don't know which publication they
came from or date but I am entering the 1988 articles.
I know this is from a Metal mag since I did check the back pages & there was one article
on Motley Crue which has a quote box saying"...sure glad those people at METAL took our advice..."
The article says METAL in caps. So it may be Metal, or said it short for Metal Edge, Metal Hammer,
