Doug Ingle (born September 9, 1945 in Omaha, Nebraskamarker, U.S.marker) was the organ, vocalist and primary composer for the band Iron Butterfly.


Ingle's 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 after spending his impressionable years as a mountain child moved to San Diegomarker, Californiamarker.

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, the epic seventeen-minute "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida." When he originally wrote the song, he had not intended it to run seventeen minutes long. The album and subsequent single release of the title track vaulted Ingle and the band to national prominence. "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" received the first Platinum Record sales award in the history of the Recording Industry and became a landmark record in psychedelic rock.

Ingle became physically and emotionally exhausted after several years of nonstop touring; he resigned from the group in 1971. While he has toured occasionally with his former band members since that time, he has not been involved with any of the group's later recordings.

As of April 2009 Doug Ingle has returned to music, as evidenced by his new MySpace Page. He currently has ten songs posted, all being keyboard instrumentals.
