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.”

Peter GaffneyHappy Birthday Robby!! I hope you enjoy your special day. Maybe you can get a round of golf in...don't come to MA now to play unless you have a colored ball (or a guitar) to stand out in the snow. You are so down to earth and a giving person who just happens to be a RNR legend. God Bless.

Asher McKinneyThe highlight of my year was performing 20 DOORS songs at a club, hired by "Hippy Chick," who was turning 50 and for her public party, requested I perform a set of all music by The Doors. I decided to choose songs that I knew The Doors had done without a bassist in live performances. I play keyboard and singing so I did the Ray style of covering the bass parts. I was asked to book around town by theother lady who paid me and she offered to help book the act. The highlight was when someone came up to the stage afterwards and told me he had been to a Doors concert back in the day and (pointing at our stage ), smiled and with wide eyes said, "that DIDN'T SUCK!" I could tell he enjoyed the real Doors concert of the past very MUCH, and that was the best I could've hoped for. I saw you twice without Ray and 3 times with Ray. I LOVE you guys! HaPpy NEWYEAR!!!!

Joe BuczekNo guitar solo exists that i know of, that is as cool as light my fire! And when Robby plays it ? well. (it just dosent matter if theres a mistake) weve all seen him do it flawless and differently before at one time or another and thers always a magical hook in there. intentional or not. I dont recall ever hearing him play this solo that didnt capture magic
