Lee Dorman (born September 15, 1942) is an American bass guitarist best known as a member of the rock band Iron Butterfly. He also played in the band Captain Beyond.[1] Dorman is from St. Louis, Missouri, and moved to San Diego, California in the 1960s. He began playing bass guitar in his teens. Dorman's performances were both musically and physically powerful, with his bass slashing the air, his feet pounding the stage and his bass notes prominent in the music played by both bands. While recording In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida, Iron Butterfly's Dorman assisted Erik Brann with the arrangement of Brann's song "Termination," and was given a co-writing credit.

In the late 1960s, Lee Dorman the radio personality played Lee Dorman the bassist's records on the radio.
