The Doors

The Doors, one of the most influential and controversial rock bands of the 1960s, were formed in Los Angeles in 1965 by UCLA film students Ray Manzarek, keyboards, and Jim Morrison, vocals; with drummer John Densmore and guitarist Robby Krieger. The group never added a bass player, and their sound was dominated by Manzarek's electric organ work and Morrison's deep, sonorous voice, with which he sang and intoned his highly poetic lyrics. The group signed to Elektra Records in 1966 and released its first album, The Doors, featuring the hit "Light My Fire," in 1967.

Like "Light My Fire," the debut album was a massive hit, and endures as one of the most exciting, groundbreaking recordings of the psychedelic era. Blending blues, classical, Eastern music, and pop into sinister but beguiling melodies, the band sounded like no other. With his rich, chilling vocals and somber poetic visions, Morrison explored the depths of the darkest and most thrilling aspects of the psychedelic experience. Their first effort was so stellar, in fact, that the Doors were hard-pressed to match it, and although their next few albums contained a wealth of first-rate material, the group also began running up against the limitations of their recklessly disturbing visions. By their third album, they had exhausted their initial reservoir of compositions, and some of the tracks they hurriedly devised to meet public demand were clearly inferior to, and imitative of, their best early work.

On The Soft Parade, the group experimented with brass sections, with mixed results. Accused (without much merit) by much of the rock underground as pop sellouts, the group charged back hard with the final two albums they recorded with Morrison, on which they drew upon stone-cold blues for much of their inspiration, especially on 1971's L.A. Woman.

From the start, the Doors' focus was the charismatic Morrison, who proved increasingly unstable over the group's brief career. In 1969, Morrison was arrested for indecent exposure during a concert in Miami, an incident that nearly derailed the band. Nevertheless, the Doors managed to turn out a series of successful albums and singles through 1971, when, upon the completion of L.A. Woman, Morrison decamped for Paris. He died there, apparently of a drug overdose. The three surviving Doors tried to carry on without him, but ultimately disbanded. Yet the Doors' music and Morrison's legend continued to fascinate succeeding generations of rock fans: in the mid-'80s, Morrison was as big a star as he'd been in the mid-'60s, and Elektra has sold numerous quantities of the Doors' original albums plus reissues and releases of live material over the years, while publishers have flooded bookstores with Doors and Morrison biographies. In 1991, director Oliver Stone made The Doors, a feature film about the group starring Val Kilmer as Morrison.

The remaining three members of the Doors -- Manzarek, Densmore, and Krieger -- were involved in various musical activities in the decades following Morrison's death but never saw successes approaching the levels of the original Doors. After the turn of the millennium, Manzarek and Krieger performed live under the name Doors of the 21st Century with singer Ian Astbury of the Cult handling vocals; a legal battle ensued when Densmore filed suit against his former bandmates over use of the Doors name. Ray Manzarek died in May 2013 in Rosenheim, Germany after battling bile duct cancer; he was 74 years old. ~ William Ruhlmann & Richie Unterberger, Rovi

Jim Morrison was an incredible poet. His influence on this song was so subtle yet incredibly influential, even in other genres of music generations later his mark is still evident and you can't help but admire his skill as a wordsmith regardless of your age.
Awesome Song!!!!!!

Groundbreaki n g and withstanding the test of time. We realized in the late 70s and 80s that they would still be listened to into the next century despite how short a span they had. They were gathering momentum in the early 80s despite the trend towards punk and new wave. Quite an accomplishme n t for the type of music this.

Saw The Doors Sept. 1968 in Pittsburgh ! Front row seats with a hippie-chick babe in a smallish venue . Awesome performance even though Morrison had a sever glaze to the eyes , Aw , for the 60s !!
He wasn't meant to grow old... The drinking alone would've done him in eventually & that's not including the drugs but man you have to party non stop for that s**t to kill u at 27
You gotta' be special to understand and love The Doors
When all hope is lost and the abyss is staring back at you (and you blink first) if you pay attention you realize that the song you hear is Riders on the Storm. You realize this ain't so bad after all. I love this song. What a legacy.
Nick, first you have to join the SDS if you can find it.........B a b y

LaraLove, I like the way you think (Post). This is a great part of this great song Roadhouse Blues. I may have, may not have, done the same a time or two. My favorite Doors Song is The End, both versions. Yes it's bit deep, strange... But it's just too amazing not to get into<><
