Iron Butterfly is an American heavy psych rock band formed 1966 in San Diego, California by Doug Ingle (vocals/organ), Jack Pinney (drums), Greg Willis (bass) and Danny Weis (guitar). Best known for the 1968 seventeen minute song "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" (in the garden of Eden), they led the way towards the development of hard rock and heavy metal music. After the recording of their debut album Heavy, they underwent a major lineup change with only Ingle left from the founders, he was joined by Ron Bushy (drums), Lee Dorman (Bass) and 17 year old guitarist Erik Brann. It was this lineup that recorded their classic second album In-A-Gadda-Da-Vita in 1968. Other outstanding albums include Ball, Metamorphosis and the live Fillmore East 1968.
