Ray Manzarek, Doors keyboardist, dead at 74 earlier this week in Germany of bile duct cancer; here he explains how the group painstakingly constructed Light My Fire

In 1998 Manzarek visited NPR's Fresh Aire and explained to Terry Gross how the Doors carefully, methodically and collaboratively built the music and lyrics for their rock classic Light My Fire, brick by musical brick. Below: a live version of the chestnut.
      30s film siren Mae West, born in 1893, liked Light My Fire so much she recorded it at age 79.
