Dave Grohl selfies, the best kind of selfies
It’s the kind of memorial rock stars dream of … famed Sunset Strip nightclub Whisky a Go Go — where The Doors got their start back in the 60s — will be honoring Ray Manzarek on its marquee for the rest of the week, TMZ has learned.
A rep for the famed rock club tells us, the marquee memorial will stay up tonight through Saturday — and every show in the meantime will be dedicated in Manzarek’s honor.
The rep says the club will also be briefly “going dark” tonight at 8pm in remembrance.
As we reported, Manzarek — one of the founding members of the iconic rock band — passed away today following a long battle with bile duct cancer. He was 74.
The Doors were playing as the house band at the Whisky — opening for acts like Van Morrison — when a record exec discovered them and gave the band their first big record deal.

i wish i was a mermaid so i could have a nice shiny tail and a pretty seashell bra and a beautiful voice that i could use to entice cute boys and make them crash their ships and drown at sea so human women could rise as the dominate gender of the land
i wish i was a mermaid
and was friends with all the fish
a shiny tail and seashells
that would be my wish
hahah wow i knew within the next hour someone would be making a “wow suddenly everyone cares about ray” post and yup already starting to see them. impressive, not even an hour has passed!! you can love someone or merely just respect their contribution to the world without…
Oh my house
I do not want to go through the next 10 or 20 years watching my idols, people I love and admire, and even just figureheads of the 1960s scene die. I cannot handle this. The fact that this is basically what life will be like from now on is unacceptable.
