Six O’Clock Triple Shot – 2/12/14 Celebrating Ray Manzarek’s Life
(The Six O’Clock Triple Shot is a daily feature of three songs that share a common theme, heard weeknights on 94.9 WMMQ)
Tonight, we celebrate the life of the late Ray Manzarek, who would have been celebrating his 75th birthday today. The Doors’ keyboardist passed away last spring after battling bile duct cancer. Rumors have been circulating about a potential tribute show for Ray since August of 2013, after a reconciliation of his surviving bandmates, John Densmore and Robby Krieger. Obviously, the idea of it happening on his 75th won’t come to fruition.
Tonight’s Six O’Clock Triple Shot features three with Ray’s patented keyboard sounds prominently featured: “Alabama Song”, “Riders On The Storm”, and “Soul Kitchen”. Only on 94.9 WMMQ!
