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.”

Vincent CostanzoUnion labor and fair wages are also a thing of the past there. Factory workers make $17 an hour (to build a $100k+ car mind you), and any mere talk of unionization will get you canned instantly. The big picture is not so rosie. Not to mention the severe environmental impact of lithium batteries, from the ground to the end of their life cycle...

Aissam IdrissiFar out...are you coming back to Houston anytime soon?! Hope you still have the Moroccan flag I gave you guys last time you were here..you and the doors mean so much to me, especially because of my little brother who passed away many years ago and who idolized you guys..but beyond my little story you guys crafted a whole different way of how people see music and you really did impact music in a major way..last week I walked past a kid that couldn't have been more than 12 and he was wearing a doors shirt and he had long hair and the attitude to go along with it, and that's when I smiles and thought yes there is hope :) love you guys and thank you for the music and all the beautiful memories that came along with it..

My friend Patrick has been a saxophonist to the stars for the last decade, sharing the stage with me for our annual Medlock-Krieger benefit, Alice Cooper, Esperanza Spalding, two time Grammy winning Diane Schuur, Bobby Caldwell, Gino Vannelli, Smokey Robinson and a host of others. Patrick Lamb's last three songs have made top five on U.S. Billboard charts on his own independent Label. Please support my friend as he now debuts his vocal song โ€œLatelyโ€. Guitarist Tommy Thayer from KISS also contributed to writing the intro sax line of the song and plays guitar on it.
