The Doors were an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1965, with vocalist Jim Morrison, keyboardist Ray Manzarek, guitarist Robby Krieger, and drummer John Densmore.

Band members

 They were among the most controversial and influential rock acts of the 1960s, mostly because of Morrison's lyrics, voice, and his erratic stage persona. They have been also cited as "the kings of acid rock genre", and the group was widely regarded as an important part of the era's counterculture , "The Doors" began with a meeting between acquaintances Jim Morrison and Ray Manzarek, both of them had attended the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television, on Venice Beach in July 1965. Morrison told Manzarek he had been writing songs: "I was taking notes at a fantastic rock'n'roll concert going on in my head",[and with Manzarek's encouragement , this is a great video of Ray Manzarek, explaining how they made the song " Riders on the storm " this song made a great success   , most of the  radio stations played it because it had a special feeling 

 

 

Official song

 

Beginning in the late 1970s, there was a sustained revival of interest in the Doors which created a new generation of fans. The origin of the revival is traced to the release of the album An American Prayer in late 1978 which contained a live version of "Roadhouse Blues




that received considerable airplay on album-oriented rock radio stations. In 1979 the song "The End" was featured in dramatic fashion in the film Apocalypse Now, and the next year the best-selling biography of Morrison, No One Here Gets Out Alive, was published. The Doors' first album, The Doors, re-entered the Billboard 200 album chart in September 1980 and Elektra Records reported the Doors' albums were selling better than in any year since their original release.[124] In response a new compilation album, Greatest Hits, was released in October 1980. The album peaked at No. 17 in Billboard and remained on the chart for nearly two years.
