The rock world has lost another legend.

On Thursday, it was confirmed that the Jefferson Airplane guitarist Paul Kantner has passed away at 74-years-old. So sad!

According to his publicist Cynthia Bowman, the musician died from multiple organ failure and septic shock. Not to mention, Paul also suffered from a heart attack earlier this week. Tragic!

Apparently, the rock star also had a heart attack back in March 2015 and has been incredibly ill for some time. Kantner famously co-founded JA with Marty Balin, Jack Casady, Spencer Dryden, Jorma Kaukonen, and Grace Slick. He also formed the spinoff group Jefferson Starship.

The White Rabbit artist was a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee back in 1996 and is survived by his three children Gareth, Alexander, and China. His loss is most certainly felt in the industry.

In fact, the official Facebook account for The Doors took to the social media site to pay tribute to the fallen guitarist. They posted:

Ray Manzarek, the legendary keyboardist of The Doors, passed away Monday afternoon after a lengthy battle with bile duct cancer.

The voice and face and bare chest of the band may have been Jim Morrison, but the brains behind the outfit was Ray.

Ray helped give the band several huge hits with his catchy melodies. After Jim's death, Ray became a solo performer, music producer, and author.

In 2002, Ray reunited with The Doors' guitarist Robby Krieger to continue playing their classics. Robby said:

Jim Morrison Gets A Posthumous Pardon For "Indecent Exposure" Conviction

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal Matters

Better late than never!

On March 1, 1969, Jim Morrison was alive and well, performing a concert in front of his adoring fans in Miami. That evening, he reportedly dropped his pants, giving the crowd a very personal view and the stunt landed him in prison for six months. Before he died, he was attempting to appeal the conviction, as he had proof that he never actually exposed himself to his fans. Sadly, he never got the chance to defend himself.

Fast forward to 2007, when a huge Doors fan approached Gov. Charlie Crist and insisted that the case be reopened so that Jim could be pardoned. Fast forward to today, as the pardon has finally come to pass.

After several years and the reassurance of the surviving band members that it didn't happen, Gov. Crist, along with two other members, granted the pardon.

Wow. Guess we're just going to ignore the 100 or so pictures of evidence? Okay, cool!
