|The Doors were one of the most influential and controversial rock bands of the 1960s. Formed in L.A in 1965 by students Ray Manzarek, Jim Morrison, 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, and his highly poetic lyrics. 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 flowing melodies. From the start, the bands focus was the charismatic Morrison, who proved increasingly unstable throughout the group's brief career. The Doors' music and Morrison's legend continue to fascinate succeeding generations of rock fans: In the years since his death, Morrison is as big a star as he'd ever been in the mid-'60s.
