Ray Manzarek would have turned 75 years old today, born on February 12, 1939 in Chicago, Illinois.

Ray died of cancer last year on May 20, 2013.

His bandmate, Robby Krieger, has been working on getting a bunch of people together to honor Ray, according to billboard.com.

“We want to bring together those who Ray either idolized or guys who idolized Ray, maybe at the Greek or The Hollywood Bowl for a big concert this summer,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. “We’ve teamed up with Live Nation and they are helping us get it all together. We just want it to be the best it can be.”

The Doors members have had their troubles but Manzarek’s death has brought together Robby and John Densmore, who were bickering over using the Doors name.

According to Krieger:

Ray and I wanted to play as The Doors, and John didn’t want to, and so we had a big lawsuit. But now John and I are back on track…too bad it took Ray’s passing to cause that. But I am happy that we are.”

Details forthcoming when we know more.
