Ray Manzarek, keyboard player and founder member of the 1960s rock band The Doors, has died aged 74.
He formed the band with lead singer Jim Morrison in 1965 after a chance meeting in Venice Beach, Los Angeles.
Manzarek, who had suffered from bile duct cancer for many years, died in a clinic in Rosenheim, Germany, with his wife and brothers at his bedside.
The Doors found fame in the 1960s with hits such as The End, Break on Through to the Other Side and Hello I Love You.

We all know Jim Morrison was the face and the voice but Manzareks' keyboard playing was just brilliant and unique, and his musicianship was as integral a part of the Doors' sound as Morrisons' swagger.
