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.”

Norman HansenTony Funches always had interesting posts and was a cool guy to correspond with. He was writing a book about all of his adventures and I hope it sees the day of light because he certainly had a lot of cool stories to tell. A sad day

John BoydstonFirst read about him in Joel Selvin's latest book about Altamont, "The Completely Worst Concert in the History of Bad Ideas Because Mick Needed an Ending to His Movie" where he was protecting the Stones at that insane event. He sounded pretty cool.

Aldric MrMojoHey there! Please tell me you read your own facebook, im a insane, crazy and wild child, and i swear you that it would be very interesting both of us to see each other, there is not many time left! Ray already died, he is with us in spirit. we all deserved a break! i had mine a while ago. Ready for a last jam or trip? or both? Please check this out, you know this energy, the struggle Jim had. there is clearly a difference between mind and spirit. but you need to know why i send you, impossible you don't know. Ray would have known, you guys are just that famous i can't reach you guys! still this spirit isn't one i can stop, he wants to try make this clear. you know jim had no other choice than listening to the breeze of his spirit. exactly the same now, i failed everyone and don't deserve it, you guys know that, fans don't know! they are crazy! i didn't changed a bit, i feel just skinny and a little more small, got some memory loss, but please i can't explain this the right way, its already hard enough to accept the past as a spirit, my brains are rotting in the summer ground. please come check this out, me and other musicians live in a house upon a hill in a forest, where we make music everyday, we don't work or anything! just like we did on the beach, exactly that same process, making itself! just a flow, a river, a spirit guiding us. let me hug you before you go, i missed you guys... call me insane, and go insane too, you still will think my lyrics are weird, the band here thinks the same, birds fly and snakes crawl, heaven and earth we got it all. Aldric (Belguim kessel-lo 3010 verbrandenbos 29) stay alive for a little longer!

Robby Krieger added 34 new photos to the album: Robby Krieger Art Gallery Opening.

This was the very first art gallery showing for Robby. It occurred Thursday evening at Mr Musichead Gallery to benefit the "Harmony Project" and "Art For A Cause". Because Robby has never shown his artwork before, you can imagine how exciting it was for Robby and also for all the Doors fans in attendance. Please go to this link to make a donation to the Harmony Project at: www.harmony-project.org/ Please stop by while his work will be up for an additional 2 weeks! Big thanks Barbara Hollander of "Art For A Cause" for helping to make this show possible. Also a big thank you to, Sam Milgrom, owner of Mr Musichead Gallery. All Photos: Jill Jarrett Photography
