The Doors were a California based psychedelic rock music group active during the 1960's and 70's. The lineup was Jim Morrison on vocals, Ray Manzarek on organ, John Densmore on drums and Robbie Krieger on guitar. The Doors were famous for their liberal politics on war, drugs and sex. Their self titled debut album "The Doors" was released in 1966 and became a success thanks largely due to their number 1 single "Light My Fire". From there the Doors continued to release popular music often with a dark undertone. The original lineup recorded 6 studio albums between 1966 and 1971: The Doors, Strange Days, Waiting for the Sun, The Soft Parade, Morrison Hotel, and L.A. Woman. The group lost their singer Morrison when he died in 1971 but would release three studio albums afterward, two of them in 1971-72 without Morrison: Other Voices and Full Circle; and the third, American Prayer in 1978, recorded around old recordings of Morrison reading poetry. Today the Doors reformed as The Doors Twenty First Century and continue to tour with only two original members (Densmore and Krieger).
