Douglas Lloyd "Doug" Ingle (born September 9, 1945 in Omaha, Nebraska, US) is a founding member and, formerly, organist, vocalist, primary composer and lead vocalist for the band Iron Butterfly. He also had a short stint with the pop group Stark Naked and the Car Thieves in the early 1970s after he left Iron Butterfly.
Early life and career
Ingle was born in Omaha, Nebraska. His father Lloyd, a church organist, introduced him to music at an early age. Ingle moved from his native Nebraska within three months of his birth to the Rocky Mountains and later the family moved to San Diego.
His work is featured on Iron Butterfly albums Heavy, In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida, Ball and Metamorphosis. Most famously, he authored the band's biggest hit, "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida". He co-authored their remaining three hits ("Soul Experience", "In the Time of Our Lives", and "Easy Rider") with other members of the group.
Ingle left Iron Butterfly in 1971. He toured occasionally with his former band members since that time but was not involved with either of Iron Butterfly's later two album recordings Scorching Beauty and Sun And Steel.
