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.”

Most people know Robby Krieger as the consummate music artist in his role as former guitar player and songwriter of the legendary band The Doors.
What shouldn’t be surprising is that creativity has no boundaries and many times artistic expression will spill over into more then one medium for the artist.
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 hope my paintings brings joy and love to art lovers for many years to come.” – Robby Krieger

Two of my all time favorites; Joe Namath and Robie Krieger.

Looking good guys! Robbie you rock!

You guys look great!

Love you Robbie.🎶🎸

Thanks for sharing

Looking good Robby 🙂

Awesome.

Awesome.

I hope Scotty's doing well! Me checking out Ondine in Dec 2014.

See you tonight Robbie!!

A Beaver County boy from Western Pennsylvania!!! They do not get any better than these three!!!

GREAT SHOW

Love it! Hope Mr Namath will come to the Medlock Krieger in October!

Awesome looking good

Excelente dato robby es un grande una leyenda

Legend

Robby, you and your music will live forever. Thanks for that.

Wow

In many ways namath was the jim morrison of the nfl. Both iconoclastic and very innovatively innovative. gifted at what they did and trail blazers. Both willing to buck the authority and estbl system both in culture and in their own vocation. Both inconsistent and flawed by demons, yet when the pieces came together they gave performances for the ages.... I wonder if namath met Morrison, jim was actually a nfl fan and a rams season ticket holder one year. Jim also hung and partied a lot in nyc. Wouldnt be surprised if they crossed paths.

It is always wonderful to see photos like this of you looking so happy, healthy, busy and relaxed, Robby Krieger.

Robbie Krieger and John Densmore....God Bless You Guys

Looking good guys, wish I could be there. Col

Where was Joe Namath’s fundraiser? I live near him. If Robby was in town and I missed him, that’s a major bummer.

Joe said he's not getting all the benefits he deserves, Call right now! It's Free!

For immediate release: New Archival Recordings from Robby Krieger!

Los Angeles: Robby Krieger, guitarist of the ‘60s rock band “The Doors” has released an album of unreleased cuts from his 1979 band “Red Shift”.

In 1978, Doors fan Mack Mckenzie knocked on Robby Krieger’s door with a demo tape in hand, hoping Robby might fulfill a dream and collaborate with him. After listening to the demo, Robby agreed and recruited friends Arthur Barrow, Don Poncher and Vinnie Colaiuta to be in a short-lived band called “Red Shift”. They cut seven tracks in the studio, had a few gigs in Los Angeles, and for unknown reasons, “Red Shift” disbanded. Now, forty years later, we can enjoy this time capsule of the emerging punk scene in Los Angeles.

TRACK LISTING (all songs by Arthur Barrow, Robby Krieger and Mack McKenzie).

1) Hyena People
2) At The End Of The Day
3) Lost And Forgotten
4) Mirror There
5) Physical Culture
6) Sexorsize
7) Psychlone Ride

You can watch the official videos here:
www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLCMLwBlc12Hyr6yo3MMyvO6sME3_F8u1R

The album “Red Shift” is available on all streaming platforms including Spotify, Apple Music and Tidal.

The name “Red Shift” was Arthur Barrow's idea. He was all into astronomy and said that “red shift” was the Doppler shift that scientists had discovered that proved that the galaxies are moving rapidly away from each other. The highlight of our short time as a band was when Timothy Leary came to see our show at Madam Wongs. He was way into astronomy at the time, and was super excited to see Red Shift. He left after a few songs though when he realized that we weren’t singing about the cosmos! oh well!

And hope you enjoy the liquid light shows in the videos. Wanted to give you something psychedelic to watch while you listened.

I’m really diggin this music 👍

Excelente

I look forward to hearing any newly released material that Robby has done and look forward to the future.hopefully when I retire from nursing I will be seeing some performances soon.Robby thanks for your enduring music that has stood the test of time.sincerely,Sharon Henderson

That was so cool to watch!!! I have loved the doors since I was about 15 and became a little obsessed. Read every book I could find about them! I had the honor of meeting Ray when I was 21, he played in a small bar in Ballard (near Seattle) called the Back Door or the Back Stage Door. Anyway, it was him some guy from the grateful dead and some 60's poet. We stayed after and I got his autograph on an album cover and a jacket. Still have the jacket.

I see Robbie ..John... but not seeing Ray and of course Jim breaks my heart 😔...Doors my favorite band .

Love seeing John and Robbie on stage Together Again !!! 👍

Riders in the Storm. Jim and Ray are missing 😢 i miss them. But please note that Robby is still not using a pick (he never did and he is the master of the slide) and John Densmore is on drums. Love the doors.

If only Robbie would listen to me we could make the myths once more. We were told we were the doors of this era. All that saw us play said we took on where the doors left off we were honored to be compared to the legendary doors. Mr Krueger I have 70 songs ready to rock and roll and keep the whole Thing going. Alright

Fantastic to watch

Saw Robby and Dan at the Keswick Theatre in June; outstanding

Saw and heard it when Jill uploaded it and i was mesmerized !!! Robby I love you and it is so exiting to hear you with John that is truly a timeless moment!! Together you make magic!! Thank you for indulging us!!

Looking forward to seeing you this coming Sunday.

Sounds great Robbie 🎸

Great to see Robby and John Playing together ✌🏼

My uncles introduced me to The Doors when I was just 5 years old, in 1968. So began my rock & roll education. Thank you, Robby & John, for giving me so many happy hours for the past 50 years. ❤

Awesome-ride on!

Glad to see two members of The Doors still riding the storm, and the other Doors remain in our hearts <3

Hope to see you in Annapolis! Ed Roth is my friend

Who is the vocal and pianist?

Robbie n john HAVE got to do more together. ... why are they wasting time in NOT recording new tunes

Got the muse going!

Thanks Robby... We meet 5_6 times...in Italy and France... Lignano... Paris... Milano... Hope to see you soon again! We always KEEP THE FIRE ALIVE!

Al don't dig the pants Robby but you rock. Morrison lives!

Cant say enough

They should stop imitating Jim Morrison... do your performance and that’s it... no one will look like him, sing like him or perform like him...

Kentucky Fried Chicken pants!

Reed Barrickman

Come ro Holland.. please

Hey Robby, There are a lot of great places to play Golf in Florida during the winter months. Just saying. Your friend Bryan ( I’m the guy who you thought should have won the event in Philadelphia to sing with you)

This looks to be very interesting. Stay great . Friendly Darren Anthony

You know Alaska would love to see a tour here again!

Come out to Utah so we all could have The New Experience of hearing you guys!

Hey team Robby, it would be great to post a clip for those who can’t travel now. I’ll love to see if they are playing more jazz fusion or closer to Ellis and Pass this time or what the flavor is

Really glad to see John up there with you.DOORS FOREVER.

It would be awesome if you guys toured together for your next shows! Hope there’s a 2020 show😭❤️ last 2 years have been amazing in Houston.

I saw you guys at dinner key auditorium

So glad to see you and John on the same stage....my favorite guitarist AND drummer!! ❤

Awesome, Wish I could have sat in for a number or two.

Jill has a fab eye!

Miss you guys,, good MEMORIES !!!

Is John going to be playing with you at the Whisky in a few weeks, Robby? Can't wait to see that show. Lifelong fan of The Doors and flying all the way from Tennessee to see the Whisky performance. It's going to be amazing, man!

Great pic Robby!

i'll never forget the night I went to house of blues in LA to see Robby back in the RKO days. John showed up and surprised everyone and took over on drums RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF A SONG. It was really unusual. mid transition, John was playing with one stick and Dale Alexander was playing with the other.

Awesome concert, wish Stanley Clark would have played longer.

Always thought Robby was underrated as a Guitar player. He totally "ROCKS" LOVE the Doors.🎸🎼🎵

Great night!

That's good!

Amazing

Wonderful!!!

It's looks like the Door's and starting to open. We hope. 🤘🤙

Nice!

Door Forever

Would like to see you together in Brasil!!! Doors!!! 💖🇧🇷

<3

See you in Annapolis Md 09/15
