Hi,
 
Sorry ... The Doors are way more progressive, experimental and exciting, and also feature one of the best rock singers of all time. Deep Purple, btw, is one of two concerts I ahve ever walked out on ... they were too loud, out of tune, and too screwed up to play ... it wasn't even a rock show.
 
It's just an incredible shame that we can not consider The Doors" progressive, and it was bands like them that helped give "progressive" music a nice push with the long cuts and the tripping thing and the poetic nature of it all. And the rock press, will not give enough credence to a lot of American bands ... that simple ... specially when the height of "progressive" in America is the group Kansas ... which was, for all intents and purposes a two or three song band. Deep Purple were a nice band to go catch if you were stoned and yo had nothing better to do with life ...
... none of the hits, none of the time ... you might actually find your own art, or self, instead of paying for a guru or church or social program!

Deep Purple were far better instrumentally, and I certainly loved them when I saw them in the 70s (one of the loudest damn concerts I've ever been too), but from a compositional and lyrical point of view, they don't hold a candle to The Doors. No single person best represents the music of the 60s than Jim Morrison.

I was fortunate to have a musician friend who handed me ear plugs before the concert. Unfortunately though only a few rows from the front I didn't get to see anything as the crowd surged to the front of the stage when the music started. Although both good and bad experiences, they can definitely play. Just listen to Made in Japan, on of the best live recordings ever.

Getting back to the poll, The Doors was the first progressive band I ever got into at age fifteen, although I was fortunate that their first album I listened to happened to be their best (Strange Days). Morrison Hotel was a major disappointment for me after which I lost interest in the band and took up with Yes and Genesis.

The Doors connect better emotionally and musically much more than Deep Purple.

I really like some albums of Deep Purple, but The Doors made a lot of great albums as well. Some songs of the Doors seem to connect to me in a special way, that makes The Doors the better band of the two.

Deep Purple. Bit surprised they are losing. Interesting. Maybe when the UK and Europe wakes things will change?

The Doors by far! Deep Purple, apart from a few songs, could never really convince me.

Deep purple!

Somehow the music of the Doors has something that turns me off a bit. I don't know what it is. One more vote for Deep Purple.

I would not say that Deep Purple had better instrumentalists; they only played flashier. I like both, and for me both are full progressive rock bands.Songs like "Riders on the Storm" or "When the Music's Over" are real gems of progressive rock.

Deep Purple. The Doors were terrific, but I never got into them as much as Deep Purple. Really liked the riffs that Blackmore and Lord played and Gillian's wild vocals.

Equally.

These two bands are along with Jethro Tull my all time favorites. I've seen all three in concert (The Doors without Jim, not old enough).
Jethro Tull at 12yold, The Doors XXI at 20yold and Deep Purple at 23yold. The one i liked more was Deep Purple, It was really wild, awesome.
