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 shouldnโ€™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 artโ€ฆnow 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.
โ€œI hope my paintings brings joy and love to art lovers for many years to come.โ€ – Robby Krieger

Wow Robbie what great show at the Big E. I didn't know what you were gonna play for us I had no idea it was to be all those great doors hits. Hats off to you your son and the rest of the band you guys nailed it.

Really great set last night in West Springfield! First time catching any members of the Doors and what a great lineup of players. Anyone else see the Indians dancing onstage during Five to One? Special thanks to Robby for some truly mind bending guitar work and for taking a minute to say hi to the fans on his way off stage!

Saw him tonight at The Space and my girlfriend and I both got chills from Robby's playing. Waylon was great on vocals an Dan on bass and vocals, Scott on keyboards and um...sorry to the drummer. Outstanding. Thank you.

Hope to catch the Legend Sept 30 once in a lifetime chance

I'm going! My son and I have a tradition. This will be the fifth time!

Remember England, please come over. We love you.โค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŽถ๐Ÿ‘

Master Guitarrrrrrrrrrrr.....!!!

Great show at the Big E tonight. Once in a lifetime opportunity! Thank you!

The Big e show was AMAZING. I'm still watching all the videos I took! Robby and everyone on that stage brought the MAGIC! The crowd was great! I need more! Oh and I bought the shirt! โ™กโ™กโ™กโ™ก

I'll be seeing you at the Big E on Sunday! We can have some fried Oreos together!!

Please throw in a few Canadian dates soon Robby.

Ill be in LA in December, crossing my fingers, toes legs and anything else that Robbie has some gigs then.

I went and it truly rocked my soul - an epic experience that won't soon be forgot!!! The Big E in West Springfield has never been shaken to its rafters like that before - it was like a religious experience but unholy ๐Ÿ˜‰

Will there be any more dates/locations after these?

Going to the Newton, NJ show this weekend! Hoping to see Robby and have him sign my original press โ€œWaiting for the Sunโ€ LP! Fingers crossed and super stoked for a great show ๐Ÿ™Œ

We can be Robbie Krieger just for one day! #Heroes

Best free concert ever! Western Massachusetts loves you Robby!

Is Robbie coming to South Florida on this Tour ?

I am!! Very excited to see this legendary musician!!!

Greetings and Respect to thee most esteemed Robby Krieger, nice to be Acquainted.

when will Robbie be in Arizona ?

Great Show at the Big E!

I will be at the first two shows! Canโ€™t wait
