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

An expert on guitars, songwriting, golf, and classic cars. I'm not the least bit surprised at all. One of my favorite songs that Robbie wrote is "You're Lost Little Girl," which is a song (among many Door's tunes, for that matter) that I NEVER get tired of listening to. Robbie Krieger: clearly, The Door's "Secret Weapon." 🙂

Hey Robby, what do you think of this '67 with some "Light My Fire cranked up?!?!?

Looks like a Chevy, not a Rambler

Me too! My 50 Buick

I think those pants are better than the car!

Sweet wheels Robbie! Enjoy the summer brother. Peace!

Very cool robbie.play it Robbie play it!

Rambler...Ha....NOMAD!!!!!

He would love my Camaro’s since they are 1969 models I would roll down the street or race track blaring the soft parade album

Met you at Prestige Pontiac in the mid 80’s Robby. It was a real pleasure.

I think you make the car look even better 😘😘

Always with the classic style, let it roll... Robby roll 🎸

I bet it has one hell of a stereo system ‼️

Robby was part of one of the best rock bands ever, that's what I think.

Very nice Robby! Cool wheels right there!

Sweet ride. When I was a kid I helped a guy restore one of those. It was classic red. Black is sharp.

Excellent very well cared for robby friend

Wow you still have it 😉

1955 ? And the seat belts weren’t buried under the whatchamacallit, where they normally went to die ?

We are opening the new Inyokern Transportation Park and would love for him to get involved.

Much beautiful car 😘 have a nice day, great man 😘😘

Think of all of you often...many fond memories and fun times! ❤️

It was such an excititng moment when I got to meet Ray. The first of the remaining Doors members I meet. I am very thankful for that moment.

I saw you play Robby ! and Ray with the Celebration of L.A. Woman Album. - I was there OC fair grounds - Wild Child singer Broc was on point. It was the only DOORS experience I had listening to live DOORS and the entire album with all the songs - THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!

Met you at Prestige Pontiac in the mid 80’s Robby. It was a great experience. Thanks for being so kind

RIP Ray! He was such a fine talent, just as the rest of you guys. And may I mention, the doors are the best band ever!! ❤

It's shit... one big shit... So what we have got now? ? We cant evan compare this music today, it's bladphemy... We should have a chance listening to what we want not what we have to.. Diamonds replaced by recycle plastic, it is not fair... That is why I miss You Ray... RIP mate...

Edmonton 2007, unforgettable.

Miss him too!!!

Love The Doors!

Such a massive talent - You four captured lightening in a bottle! Saw you in 1967 an Las Vegas Convention Center. My very 1st concert - I was 12. Your music still thrills.

thanks for everything

I try not to dwell on days like this.

The greatest. Best band of all time.

I saw the band in 1968, my first concert. I remember Ray quite well as he concentrated on his craft.

I Loved listening to Ray tell stories of his days in the band and about Jim. We miss you.

Saw Ray’s solo show a couple of times while he spent his last years in the Bay Area. Lovely man.
