RIP, Ray.

This was the first band I got into at the age of 10 and to say their music was a gateway for me, would be a massive understatement. It changed who I was and made me journey head first into my first love: music. Ray was their secret weapon. Playing organ leads AND covering bass parts with his left hand? So much talent.

RIP Ray. There's no doubt of the influence that him and the Doors' music has had over the past 40 years.
