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's track "Nasty Kinky" is now available for download! Right now it is only available for download at the below link, but will be on Spotify, Apple Music and other digital channels soon! Download a copy and let us know what you think!

From the Robby Krieger Archives. "Nasty Kinky", written by Robby and his good friend Arthur Barrow in 1986 and recorded that same year, lyrics inspired by Nastassja Kinski. A version of this song was later included in the 1989 horror flick "The Freeway Maniac". This version however, has Robby singing lead and is as funky and fun as anything you heard in the 80s. Transferred from the original master tapes.

Robbie, hello and best wishes from Brisbane Australia. Keep well. Fan of you guys forever.

I have a tune with lyrics I wrote and recorded on reel to reel in 1980. It's called BIG BAD SHARON....You should record it!

have not heard their Doors stuff, someone please post a vid, thanks, there Zep stuff is hot

They sound great but it doesnโ€™t seem natural when he is singing. He is just doing a Robert Plant impression

They're from Holly Michigan an hour or so from DETROIT!!! Make sure YOU come back soon Robbie!! We need a shot of DOORS music in our lives. It's been awhile. DETROIT loves you!!!

I like them. You can tell their influence. It's refreshing to hear new bands do this kind of modern Rock for a change!! Bring Rock back.๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŽถ

Yeah they have a good original sound!

I heard people doing Jim Morrison fail dramatically, in fact do not try it please!do it with your voice,like this nice cover!good job! Nice Robby!

I'm really big on this new young band. Definitely worth checking out.

Bringi back cool Rock

Gonna see these in London in June, great band.

To bad they got over playex

Uh, no thanks. Sound waaay too much like Zeppelin

Thanks for the heads up, Robbie! Amazing sound!!

What the... Joshua Wasinger. Since when are you in Greta Van Fleet
