The Beatles were the best band there ever was, but even Beatle nuts like myself recognize that the lead guitar player was never outstanding (he got better as the group progressed). The Stones? Weak bass player, interchangeable guitarists (Brian, Mick Taylor, Woody...) and the band still thrived prove that anyone could have filled that roll. The Who? All solid players, but not as good as The Doors foursome. The Doors had: 1 - an insanely great and creative drummer (he was schooled in jazz). 2 - an inventive keyboardist who did not do the usual keyboard supplying background chord stuff. His keys WERE the song. 3 - a guitarist who is the single most-underrated player in rock. Ever think flamenco finger picking would work in a rock setting? Krieger made it mind blowing. 4 - obviously an iconic frontman that is still the template many bands try to follow So The Doors are one of the rare bands that had all the parts perfect. Probably the only one.
