Doors Trivia Questions

1. "Light My Fire" was the first song ever written by which Doors guitarist?

From Quiz
Song by Song: "Light My Fire"

Answer: Robby Krieger

Robby Krieger, reports Rolling Stone magazine, was the primary author of the song, but additional lyrics were added by frontman Jim Morrison and musical arrangements by the rest of the band, so the entire band is credited with authorship of the song.

This verse is from the song 'People Are Strange' from The Doors album 'Strange Days' released in 1967.
