Ray Manzarek, the keyboardist and founding member of The Doors has died at the age of 74. Manzarek died Monday surrounded by his family in Germany after a battle with cancer. Manzarek founded The Doors after meeting Jim Morrison in California. The band went on to become one of the most successful rock ‘n’ roll acts to emerge from the 1960s. The Doors sold more than 100 million albums worldwide with hits like “Riders on the Storm,” “Light My Fire,” and “Break On Through to the Other Side.”
Manzarek wrote a best selling memoir called Light My Fire: My Life with The Doors in 1998. He’s survived by his wife, Dorothy, his son Pablo, and two brothers, Rick and James.
Stone Temple Pilots have hired Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington as their new vocalist. (STP recently parted ways with singer Scott Weiland) Stone Temple Pilots took the stage with Chester Bennington and peformed an 8 song set in California over the weekend.
Stone Temple Pilots members Dean DeLeo, Robert DeLeo and Eric Kretz revealed the news via their website. “Chester has a one-of-a-kind voice that we’ve admired for a long time,” writes Dean DeLeo. “We know Linkin Park will always be his priority, but we thought it would be cool to try something together. We managed to find the time to record a song and we’re all really happy with the result.”
Here’s their new track “Out of Time”

Today is Queens of the Stone Age leader Josh Homme’s 40th birthday. I’ve had 2 run-ins with him over the years. One where he told me to ditch work to come to their show that night in Edmonton. Another where I drank his last Corona backstage before he got there. We’ve been playing their new song a lot on Rock 105.3, here’s the video for “My God is the Sun”.

Apparently KISS has been pulling one of their lesser hits, “Shandi” out on this tour. I personally like the song, but it’s off the album that started their downfall, 1980′s “Unmasked“. Granted – they’ve been doing the song on their Australian tour (one of the only places in the world where Shandi was a hit) – so who knows if it makes it to the stage in Southern Alberta. Rock 105.3 is proud to present KISS in both Calgary and Lethbridge this July! Click Concerts above to find out how to get your tickets.
