Sad news: The music world mourns the loss of Ray Manzarek (74), founding Member and keyboarder of The Doors, White Zombie drummer Phil Buerstatte (44) and Uriah Heep bassist Trevor Bolder (63). R.I.P.!

Well what´s that about... except the band name this CD has nothing to smile about.

Musically a Grönemeyer-Die ... more/mehr
