Doug was forced to leave Camel in early 1977 due to musical differences with Andy Ward. Doug wanted to keep Camel a progressive rock band, but Andy Ward wanted Camel to move in a jazzier direction. Doug was therefore replaced by Richard Sinclair.
Doug has been credited authorship on one Camel song; “Lady Fantasy”, which is the only song in Camel’s history where the whole band has been credited authorship. The song “Another Night” from the album “Moonmadness” is about Doug Ferguson.
In later years, Andrew Latimer has stated that Doug was probably the most important member of the group, given that he decided where Camel would play, he made sure everybody made it to rehearsals, and most importantly, he stopped arguments between Andrew Latimer and Peter Bardens.
Today, Doug Ferguson is a successful real estate agent.
