Robert Alan Krieger, born January 8, 1946, in Los Angeles, is a musical performer and The Doors guitarist. He attended UCLA. “The first music I heard that I liked was Peter and the Wolf. I accidentally sat and broke the record (I was about seven). Then I listened to rock ‘n’ roll – I listened to the radio a lot – Fats Domino, Elvis, The Platters.

“I started surfing at fourteen. There was lots of classical music in my house. My father liked march music. There was a piano at home. I studied trumpet at ten, but nothing came of it. Then I started playing blues on the piano?no lessons though. When I was seventeen, I started playing guitar. I used my friend’s guitar. I didn’t get my own until I was eighteen. It was a Mexican flamenco guitar. I took flamenco lessons for a few months. I switched around from folk to flamenco to blues to rock ‘n’ roll.

“Records got me into the blues. Some of the newer rock ‘n’ roll, such as the Paul Butterfield Blues Band. If it hadn’t been for Butterfield going electric, I probably wouldn’t have gone rock ‘n’ roll.

I didn’t plan on rock ‘n’ roll. I wanted to learn jazz; I got to know some people doing rock ‘n’ roll with jazz, and I thought I could make money playing music. In rock ‘n’ roll you can realize anything that you can in jazz or anything. There’s no limitation other than the beat. You have more freedom than you do in anything except jazz – which is dying – as far as making any money is concerned.

“In The Doors we have both musicians and poets, and both know of each other’s art, so we can effect a synthesis. In the case of Tim Buckley or Dylan you have one man’s ideas. Most groups today aren’t groups. In a true group all the members create the arrangements among themselves.”

Robby Krieger is no exception as demonstrated in his creation of a collection of spectacular, never-before-seen works of art…now available to art lovers and Robby fans.
Now, through the charity services organization, ART FOR A CAUSE, limited edition, giclee prints of his beautiful paintings will, for the first time, be available to the fans of Robby Krieger.

I visit Jim this weekend 😊

Jim's birthday; John Lennon's death day. One year in college, my roommate and I played Beatles and Doors tunes all day on Dec. 8

One year ago today at SeaTac. Thx Robby you are a class act.

The music and the "words" still blow my mind! Nothing like it now, that's for damned sure!

Hoy estaría cumpliendo 75 años. Salud Jim, brindo hacia las estrellas

Forever in our hearts.

Greg Allman's birthday too

And thank you for the music, which made my young days so rich! www.youtube.com/watch?v=PI-QIffZJEE&list=UUUASQBIwpjC8QWwxGQbEbIw

5 to 1 one in five No One here Gets out Alive

Yes definitely miss Jim!!

Nice song End of The Night Robby,for a nice day Happy birthday for de Lizard King

Happy birthday to the true American Poet. Gone but never forgotten. ❤️

One of my special favorite songs!! My room back in 67- 68 had a hanging "Blue" light ball. Robby's eerie guitar accented the music perfctly! Far Out!! Happy Birthday Jim!!

When i leave this mortal coil, I'll be looking forward to seeing Jim and Ray playing that great big gig in the sky. Happy Birthday Jim

Jim always made me feel blissful!!! 😩😢😞 Still and always my favourite singer ❤️😍💕

Happy birthday Jim. True legends never die they always Break on Through....

Love u robbie, those harmony park shows....the end

And thank you Robby Krieger 🧡 you've given us so much beauty.

Saw you and Ray in Boise years back, at the Big Easy. I am too young to have seen all of you, but I did see two.

You two sure made quite a songwriting team. How special that time must have been. "No eternal reward will forgive us now for wasting the dawn"

He left us way too early. Here is another person I will never get a chance to play music with. Thanks for the music you left for us.

But at the end of the night Just a flower remains To sign the limit open pried A withered flower Under a cover of pine needles A withered flower: Uncanning glass The standing distance Between me and you How far has it gone My Hector Fallen under Achilles spear? Why does not the silky sky Resound so enveloping In calling your name? But underneath that ragged flower I see The youngest one Weakly struggling Out of the fertile Desperate vulcanic land All gods of creation May you just sleep one moment a-more And it will grow To replace And repace the old one's steps Time to Live, Jim! Happy birthday. With love

but i love you too, saw you and ray in the netherlands...

Happy Birthday to The Lizard King 🦎 RIP JIM !!! ❤️

words from Blake's Heaven and Hell

It was an incredible night of music when founding DOORS members, John Densmore & Robby Krieger came together to celebrate the music of The Doors, during The Medlock Krieger Celebrity Golf Invitational concert, while raising $$ for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
A full gallery of my images to follow soon.

Two living legends 🇺🇸️🥁🎸😍

My dream would be to sit in on vocals and bass with these guys.

Just one time I would love to see Robby in an Armani suit!

That is a amazing photo love the doors

Just Beautiful Robby

Ich freue mich, dass die beiden zusammen auftreten

Awesome to see you guys, doing great work BTW, hugs you're the best. 🙂

Great tone with that SG Robbie. I broke out some of my Doors vinyl today. Music meant so much more in those days. It wasn’t disposable. It’s still here and always will be and you got to be part of that. God Bless

Nice , hope the lads aren’t getting smoked out at their la homes !

We devout fans have aged with you too....call it My generation. Thanks Robby for affecting my life with your creations.

Where was this ???

Looking great!

Nice to see them on stage together

When will you be in Milwaukee again?

Awesome. Rock on. Friendly, Emo Derringer

Looking good. Thanks for this post.

Was Alice cooper playing in the tournament? If he was I’m sure he won! 🤘🏻😈🤘🏻

Thank you both for 7 great albums and a lifetime of brilliant music. Not sure about the golf though. 🎼❤️

Thank you for the great songs ❤️ and for the Doors 💕💕💕

Genios!, Absent, Manzarek and Morrison.

I'd be a very happy camper if I could see them perform "Hello, I Love You", my all-time favorite song!!!
