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

happy birthday jim your legacy lives on forever

Much love & respect to you Mr Kreiger!! You were & are an amazing guitarist who in my opinion was very under rated for your talent!! ❤

An amazing artist he was... but..always been curious...What kind of friend was he Mr. Krieger?

Happy Birthday Jim! Robby, you ever think about getting in some of the east coast summer venues, festivities, Lockn, The Peach, Mountain Jam, Bethel, would love to see, I missed you in Albany a few years ago.

It's my birthday, too. Couldn't ask for a better legend to share a birthday with!

Thanks for all the great music Robbie! Legendary! Will you ever come to wet Ireland and pay us a visit? 😄

Love the Doors. Miss Jim and Ray. Got to see you guys right before Ray passed away.

You guys were Dionysus it was an extreme pleasure to see you at the surf ballroom a few years ago as I told my son it was only a glimpse of what was thanks

He's partying with my son James Morrison Keane who I lost in July........I can't wait to join them! 💜

Thank you Robbie. Love The Doors. 💕

Robby, cant wait to see you again at the Ridgefield Playhouse in May!! Seen you about 15 times

Saw u 3 years ago in New Hampshire Robbie I have seen hundreds of concerts this is one of my top five ever!!!!! Thanks for the music

Did he ever make you laugh? Like a joke or made you smile at all? He seemed serious all the time.

8 sideways is infinity!! Rock on! Robbie!

J'aime les DOORS Jim est toujours avec nous avec tout ce qu'il nous a laissé une oeuvre magnifique de sensibilité de fantaisie d'amour C'est mon chamman Happy birthday Jim

Great photo of you two together. You probably don’t remember me , but I’m the guy who you thought should have won the contest in Philadelphia to sing with you. But the people from wmmr picked some guy that couldn’t sing. You then invited me to sing in Atlantic City but I got there late because I couldn’t find my ticket. I then ran into you walking through the casino and you invited me to play golf at Gettysburg and sing in DC but I had just started new job and couldn’t go.. Boy I wish I got to sing with you, as it would have been a dream come true. I would love to sing for you and if you read this I’m now available any time If was a dream come true meeting you. Thanks

So glad yall ran into one another all those years ago, one love!

Wish he was here, you guys rocked!!!

I always wonder what Jim would be doing if he was still alive.

He still lives on through the breaking waves of his words and voice forever resonating within

Hes not and alot of us wish he was. You need to hook up with Mike Griffion hes the closest that'll ever be.

Me tooo wish Jim was still here. You rock Robbie!

Had tickets to see you in Jacksonville Fl. Would of been third time .But only Two Times!

I always think of him on this date .. have since I was 14. I am now almost 53.

if my last song would be from the Doors i would i go easy💕🎚

Querido Robby Krieger fueron son y serán músicos extraordinarios! Los llevo en mi corazón desde hace muchos años... Gracias por la música! Happy birthday Jim Morrison!

I watched Rambo 5 with my kids yesterday. There’s a scene in the movie were Rambo is fighting with 15-20 men. Five to One song from The Doors is playing. I really realized that Doors music was still great 50 years later !! Incredible

A lot of great comments. I will give you the answer of who is who tomorrow!

Loved all the comments! Here's the answer. Starting on the left and going clockwise. John and Julia Densmore, Ray and Dorothy Manzarek, Bruce Botnick and his date, Jim Morrison with a napkin on his head, Lynn Krieger, and then Robby Krieger with his back to the camera. Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving, Robby. Of course Jim is at the head of the table.

John has the napkin on his head. Jim is sitting on the left between a girl, maybe Pam hard to tell, and to his left is Ray's wife Dorothy. Robby is in front of camera sitting at the end of table facing away from camera.

Happy Thanksgiving Robby! My husband and I were scream singing along to The Doors on our way to our Thanksgiving Day dinner. xo

Happy Thanksgiving Robby and family, the guy with napkin sure looks guilty, but I'm saying Jim is left in front of you.

Hope you are having a fantastic Turkey Day. 🦃 Saw you at the Canyon in Agoura Hills in June 2018. Thank YOU for putting on an awesome show! 😁

I think maybe Jim took this photo. John I think is on the right with the napkin on his head? Or it's the other way round? Robby is sitting with his back to the camera. Happy thanksgiving Robby! Cheers from London.

Happy Thanksgiving Robby! I'm thankful for all the awesome music you've given! I heard L.A. Woman on SiriusXM the other morning while driving around Orlando and it made me miss L.A. something fierce!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!! He's hiding under the napkin!! 😁❤🦃

Happy Thanksgiving Robby!
