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.

Video from last year's event! www.youtube.com/watch?v=-sRLCzNAeoY

Jim Morrison was the shit, adored by millions, hated by 10s of thousands, women wanted him and men wanted to be him. Let it be known that he has been revered in life and death as a sex symbol, a mystic, a lyricist, a poet and one the greatest front-men ever. In case you didn't know, we want the world and we want it now. So why you at war, with the poor, thank you world. Jimmy told yah so and now you know, Amen. As always ty Mr Krieger for your charity.✌️🙏❤️ 🙂 ☯️

want to thank you mr. krieger for continuing to help raise money and believing in a cause in a hospital that's in my hometown of memphis, tn 💙

Mr. Krieger.. I'm 45 and have followed your music for 3 decades. I'm in New Jersey, but hope to finally meet the soul of what I mapped my life on. If not, Thank you Robby.. you changed a boy what I may have become as a man........thank you, Ray, John, and Jim.

That's what is good about Robby - he's there for others. And what a Songwriter with those Doors cats.

Dearest Robby Krieger, Hey in reference to your KPFK interview with Maggie LePique. I heard a lot of tones, really heard everything, all of John's drum beats, for instance, he went crazy on the cymbals a couple of times, lol, I don't normally hear on the radio. Is it due to mixing or how the songs provided were recorded? As in did you provide a master? Awesome choice for the end of the interview, The End, lol hugs 🤘☯️✌️
