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.”

Anyone notice the "sleepwalking" during the end credits? 🙂 One other "Easter egg" in the video is.. if you listen closely to the band bantering at the very beginning of the video. You can hear Phil talking to Robby. That banter is actual studio banter from a Butts Band studio session from 1973!

We need to help Robby get back on billboard charts.

il tuo suono è davvero speciale .un marchio di fabbrica! Ottima e personale interpretazione.

RIP Jim.We will all be remembering you today xx 🌹

You are still here bless your soul💐

Such a sad day.

Such a sad day in rock history, and such a terrible loss. I think Jim would have gone very far, and would have had so much to offer not only in his music, but his poetry as well. RIP Jim. You are very much loved!

Oh Jim, you're so beautiful 48 years 😪

Remembered always.

I like the doors music Jim was a very talented and good looking guy

wowzers... love him & The Doors

Don chingon, siempre en nuestros recuerdos jimbo Mr best, forever in ours memories

48 years. Hard to believe. We lost so much.

What can one say about Jim that hasn't been said a thousand times. You were one of a kind and you are sorely missed everyday.

Man, I loved the Doors in HS. Still do!

Eyes of sadness - distant....brilliant mind

love you Jim!!!!!

HAPPY 4th of July
