The Doors were a California-based psychedelic rock music group formed in 1965. The lineup consisted of Jim Morrison on vocals, Ray Manzarek on organ, John Densmore on drums, and Robbie Krieger on guitar.

The Doors were noted for their liberal politics on war, drugs and sex. Their eponymous debut album was released in 1966 and became a success mostly because of the number 1 single "Light My Fire". Beyond that, the group continued to release popular music often with a dark undertone. The original lineup recorded six studio albums between 1966 and 1971: The Doors, Strange Days, Waiting for the Sun, The Soft Parade, Morrison Hotel, and L.A. Woman.

On July 3, 1971, the group lost lead singer Morrison when he died in his Paris apartment bathtub. In spite of this, they would release three more studio albums: Other Voices (1971), Full Circle (1972) and American Prayer (1978). The latter was recorded over old recordings of Morrison reading poetry. While the band officially disbanded in 1973, Ray Manzarek and Robby Krieger continue to perform as the duo Manzarek-Krieger.
