Doc Holliday are a Southern rock band from Macon, Georgia, named after Western legend Doc Holliday.

Their debut album of the same name entered the Top 30 of the Billboard 200 in 1981. Their second album, Doc Holliday Rides Again topped that success. The band played many shows in that time, with Black Sabbath and others. Due to the failure of their third, experimental album in 1983 and the stress of touring, the band broke up in 1983.

They re-united in the 1990s. Since, they brought out more albums, and toured, mainly in Europe. They disbanded in 2011. In June 2011 they headed out on a combined 30th Anniversary and Farewell Tour in Europe.
