Name: The Doors                                                                       
Origin: Los Angeles, California, United States                                         
The Doors were an American rock band formed in 1965 in Los Angeles by vocalist         
Jim Morrison, keyboardist Ray Manzarek, drummer John Densmore, and guitarist           
Robby Krieger. They were one of the most controversial bands of their time, due       
mostly to Morrison's cryptic lyrics and unpredictable stage persona. Since the         
band's dissolution in the 1972 - and especially since Morrison's death in 1971 -       
interest in the Doors' music has remained high, especially from The Morrison Era.     
They have sold over 80 million albums worldwide, and still sell approximately 1       
million annually.
