The Doors

The Doors was an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1965, with vocalist Jim Morrison, keyboardist Ray Manzarek, guitarist Robby Krieger, and drummer John Densmore. They were among the most controversial and influential rock acts of the 1960s, mostly because of Morrison's lyrics, and his charismatic but unpredictable stage persona. Three of the band's studio albums, The Doors, L.A. Woman, and Strange Days, were placed in Rolling Stones list of "The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time", at positions 42, 362, and 407 respectively. According to The Washington Posts Martin Weil, the band rose to the center of the counterculture of the 1960s. After Morrison's death in 1971, the remaining members continued as a trio until disbanding in 1973.
