Tribute to 'stellar musician' Ray Manzarek of The Doors
The keyboardist with The Doors, Ray Manzarek, has died aged 74 after a long battle with cancer.
He formed the band with Jim Morrison in 1965 and his musical skills helped give the group their distinctive sound.
Former Rolling Stone editor Ben Fong-Torres was a friend of Ray Manzarek and told BBC Radio 5 live's Breakfast that he "proved himself to be a stellar musician" despite being in the shadow of lead singer Jim Morrison.
