Wellll?

You can ONLY go by the Stones' live shows and albums until 1971 to make it fair.

THE ROLLING STONES
The Rolling Stones (England's Newest Hit Makers) (1964)
12 X 5 (1964)
The Rolling Stones, Now! (1965)
Out of Our Heads (1965)
December's Children (And Everybody's) (1965)
Aftermath (1966)****
Between The Buttons (1967)
Their Satanic Majesties Request (1967)
Beggar's Banquet (1968)
Let It Bleed (1969)
Sticky Fingers (1971)

THE DOORS
The Doors (1967)
Strange Days (1967)
Waiting for the Sun (1968)
The Soft Parade (1969)
Morrison Hotel (1970)
L.A. Woman (1971)

***= Aftermath is the first album where all the songs were written by the Stones.The previous albums were mostly cover albums with only one or two original songs thrown in.

Null vote for me. Love them both way too much to choose.

Stones by so much it's not even funny. Oh and why can you only go with their output up until 71? Not their fault that Morrison turned into a fat lush. :shrugs:

The Doors were bloody good - I think some of you are underestimating how good they were. Few bands were as original and groundbreaking as The Doors, being that they possessed a classical guitarist and no bass player (Ray would fill the low end in on his organ) alongside a poet singer and jazz drummer. It is very close for me but I still went for The Stones.

Makes it fair that you're considering only the material they put out while both groups co-existed. They were direct competitors in the period from '67 to '71; Some even considered The Doors to be America's equivalent of the Stones at the time. Jim wasn't a fat lush when he died. He died cause his girlfriend Pam was a Heroin junkie and apparently he was a little drunk and snorted her heroin, thinking it was cocaine. He threw up a couple of pan-fulls of blood, felt better, took a bath while Pam nodded out in a Heroin daze. The last thing she remembered was him calling for her help from the bathroom but she was too noddy to do anything.

The Doors actually disbanded in 1973. They released two post-Morrison albums, Other Voices (1971) and Full Circle (1972) with Manzareck and Krieger handling vocal duties.

But that isn't a fair comparison. You compare a band's full body of work or nothing to be fair don't you? I mean that's like comparing the Beatles to Zeppelin but saying you can only judge it on Let it Be and Abbey Road vs Zep 1-3.

If we're judging whole catalogue for whole catalogue i'd give it to The Doors for the simple reason that, for as long as Jimbo was with em they never made a bad song whereas there's a lot of meh stuff at certain points in The Doors catalogue but overall The Stones have the more...bigger, huger, importanter tracks. I dunno see bad question to ask me cuz i love The Doors and i reckon The Stones are alright too. I dunno, null vote, evens.
