Check out this video taken from their performance in Brooklyn, NY on Saturday evening.
It's a sad day in the rock & roll community. Ray Manzarek, Doors co-founder & keyboardist, passed away today in Rosenheim, Germany after a long battle with bile duct cancer. He was 74 years old. With all this talk about Sunset Strip Music Festival w/ Linkin Park this year, it's important to pay homage to all the great Doors music, now more than ever. They were very instrumental in getting the Sunset Strip scene started in the late '60's and were regular performers at Whiskey-A-Go-Go.
I remember years ago (2004 ish) when they played Hard Rock in Vegas. (minus Morrison, of course... different singer). They asked for requests, I yelled out "PEACE FROG" and they let me sing a verse from the side of the stage. I even got a thumbs up and smile from Ray. It was magical.

Franz Ferdinand have announced details of their fourth studio album, "Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action".
The LP, which is the follow-up to their 2009 effort "Tonight", will be released on August 26 and was recorded in frontman Alex Kapranos’ Scottish studio and guitarist Nick McCarthy’s Sausage Studios in London, as well as sessions in Stockholm and Oslo.
A press release announcing the album also promises a number of "interesting" collaborations but does not name names at the present moment, although it was recently reported that Roxanne Clifford of Veronica Falls will feature as a guest vocalist. Scroll down to see a full album tracklisting and watch a trailer for the LP now.
Franz Ferdinand recently debuted seven new songs at a tiny gig at Glasgow venue Nice 'N' Sleazy, opening their set with three new songs: 'Trees & Animals', 'Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action' and 'Fresh Strawberries'.
The tracklisting for the album is as follows:
'Stand On The Horizon'
'The Universe Expanded'
'Goodbye Lovers & Friends'
