The Band:
The Doors has got to be one of the most influential and controversial bands, not only of its time, but ever. They were formed in Los Angeles by a few college kids at UCLA (Ray Manzerek- keyboard, Jim Morrison-vocals, John Densmore-drums, and guitarist Robby Krieger) The Doors were captivating with their great and dominating keyboard sounds, and the unforgettably eerie and mystical voice of Jim Morrison. The group was signed under Elektra Records. The center stage shone its light on Jim Morrison; his captivating voice and out of this earth performance captured audiences world-wide.

The Doors are a rock phenomenon, legends 'till the end. They rapidly reached fame, but it all went down the drain just as fast when Jim Morrison died of an overdose in 1971. The three surviving Doors tried to carry on without him, but ultimately disbanded.
