Iron Butterfly is an American psychedelic rock band best known for the 1968 hit 'In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida'.Their heyday was the late 1960s, but the band has been reincarnated with various members. In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida is among the world's 40 best-selling albums, selling more than 30 million copies.The band formed in 1966 in San Diego. The original members were Doug Ingle (vocals, organ), Jack Pinney (drums), Greg Willis (bass), and Danny Weis (guitar). They were soon joined by tambourine player Darryl DeLoach. DeLoach's parents' garage on Luna Avenue served as the site for their almost nightly rehearsals.Jerry Penrod and Bruce Morris replaced Willis and Pinney after the band relocated to Los Angeles in 1966 and Ron Bushy then came aboard when Morris' tenure proved to be a short one.
