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.”

Thank you for coming to MN to support the Starkey Hearing Foundation Robby!

Never seen you in a tie Forrest. Looking good with Alice and Robbie.

Wonderful Robby.

Awesome!!

Today we remember legendary frontman, Jim Morrison: December 8, 1943 – July 3, 1971.

β€œ[Jim] was a poet. He jumped around onstage because he was feeling the music. He wasn't putting on a show. He was getting into the music.” - Ray Manzarek on Jim’s honest and soulful performances.

Can you imagine Mojo Risin at 75?

Paid my respects to Jim last week. What a vocalist and lyricist! Irreplaceable.

Thanks for the great music you guys lived in Right time

What 47 years ago and his spirit still lives the music so alive just the whole Vibe of the Doors so lucky to c them the doors of the 21st century R. I. P

Today also marks the 50th anniversary of the "Waiting for the Sun" album! Still great today as it was then ;O)

I saw a documentary on AXIS TV while in NYC last week. VeryInteresting I wanted to stay and watch entirety but had to leave for medical appt. do u know which one it is. The name of it so I can watch it in future.

My friend's Mom passed this week and she used Jim's words as a tribute. Death makes angels of us all and gives us wings.

As with seeing children grow, you also measure the years as you reach adulthood with the passing of the years of those you loved were lost. A man too bright and strong to stay with us too long. RIP Jimbob

The DOORs is a great band My favorite song is LA Woman. Amazing Guitar. got it on vinal and CD. Eh Eh Eh Rock Steady. Man.

Would love to see Robby and John get back together and play. Miss you John Kent state 95

He was a great poet, he was a good front man.He had this desire to see what was beyond the spirit world.He was also HOT!!@

weird, listening to Absolutely Live as I read this! πŸ™‚

Wow he just missed Pearl harbor being born and the missed th 4 th of July when he died. I was born on Pearl harbor

I wonder if the wreck on the side of the road didn't really open a door that Jim always had access to on some level...

You guys put out some great tunes in a short time with Jim, and we love you for it, R.I.P. Jim and Ray.

LA Woman played this evening in tribute.

Rest in peace Lizard King take care in heaven

Thank you Robby Krieger for keeping The Doors music alive and kicking for all of us who Love your music!!!

Robby we love you, bless you with many more years of joy good health prosperity and longevity

O grande Jim

The man was a legend.

You are all just great

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.
