A highly influential and controversial group, The Doors were major rock and theatrical innovators in the late 1960s. This Los Angeles based quartet formed in 1965 was fronted by Jim Morrison, a film school dropout who more interested in being a shaman or a poet than a rock star but somehow succeeded in being the iconic rock star of a generation with his unlikely rise and tragic fall. Musically, the band fused folk, jazz, blues, and various world genres with an expert pop/rock sensibility which brought them immediate popularity and an incredible legacy.
