The Doors - Intro

The Doors were one of the first dedicated psychedelic bands to break into the mainstream. Everyone else goes on and on about how great Jim Morrison was, but I always thought that Ray Manzarek's keyboards were just as important. They've become a bit of a cliche through the use of their music in Apocalypse Now, but the fact of the matter is that some of their strongest material is stuff that neophytes haven't heard. Unfortunately, Morrison's tragic death led to two mostly forgettable albums without him and one absolutely horrific cash-in, but we'll get to that later.
