Born: February 12, 1939. Ray Manzarek is of Polish descent, born and raised on the South Side of Chicago, Illinois, as were his parents. Growing up, he took private piano lessons from Bruno Michelotti[who?] and others. He originally wanted to play basketball, but he only wanted to play power forward or center. When he was sixteen his coach insisted either he play guard, or not at all, and he quit the team. Manzarek said later if it was not for that ultimatum, he may never have been in The Doors. He went to Everett Elementary School on S. Bell St. and attended St. Rita High School in Chicago.

Born in Maine (December 1, 1944), Densmore attended Santa Monica City College and Cal. State-Northridge. He joined The Doors in 1965 and remained a member until the band's dissolution in 1973. According to Densmore's own book, he quit the band on one occasion in reaction to Morrison's increasingly self-destructive behavior, although he returned the next day. He repeatedly suggested that the band stop touring, but Krieger and Manzarek were resistant to this notion. After the Doors' last performance with Morrison in New Orleans in 1970, the band agreed to discontinue performing live.

Robby Krieger was born in Los Angeles, California (January 8, 1946), to a Jewish family. His first exposure to music was mostly classical, as his father was a big fan of marching music, until he heard Peter and the Wolf which was the first music that really caught him. When he was seven, Krieger accidentally broke his record player, but the radio began to reach his ears playing the likes of Fats Domino, Elvis, and The Platters. At 10 he tried the trumpet, but found it wasn't for him. He began playing the blues on his parents' piano with much more success than the trumpet. At 14, he began to surf and it became an integral part of his life. Krieger's parents began to worry that his surfing was distracting him from school and they enrolled him in a private school.
