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.”

Chase Bryson SingletonAtlanta, GA loved the rooftop sold out show. I enjoyed photographing the band! :) I remember I didn't have anything for Robby to sign, so I just asked him to shake my hand. He laughed and smiled. Wonderful guy!

Dan FullerHey Shannon, I know this is random. :) If you're a Doors fan, and not busy you might want to consider checking this out. Robby was their guitarist, and a songwriter, and puts on a great Door's show.

Lisa Lynne ArchuletaHi Robby Krieger!!! Your show in Portland, Oregon was so amazingly, fabulously, spectacularly, indescribably, stupendously wonderful... thank you!!! Your band is so HOT!!! Your son, Waylon, he's a gift to all humanity. He is so original in his approach to singing songs which are legendary and he did the songs justice and I know he feels the music down to his very soul... he's a soul singer, you are a soul guitar player, it was soulful... thank you for embracing me so sweetly, Robby, and your son did too, I am grateful. I'm glad I made it out to your concert, please return.

Ralph PradoHUGE music influence to me . I'm only 21 but the doors feel like my generation of music Rays piano skills and jims dark poetry is what made the band I still give credit to johns latin beat and kriegers classic guitar slides ... there are things known and things unknown in between are THE DOORS.

Martin HorneVery sorry to hear this. I went to the Hampton Beach Casino (N.H.) one night in '67 and The Doors were playing. I didn't even know they were going to be there. They sounded great!

Tom Wendtwww.youtube.com/watch?v=uUu74a8ch_I (Even if you haven't heard this, it'll sound familiar. with Kenny Burrell guitar. 1963.) With Ray on keyboard and bass + Robbie and John, The Doors had a groove that very few bands ever had. The Robbie Krieger Band concert in Portland OR last night was phenomenal.
