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.”

Thomas HarralsonIf its medical I know you got this. Not too many things can't be taken care of with the help of a good doctor and modern medical science in an otherwise healthy active person. Makes me feel good to know that you and John Densmore in good shape and making music. Minor setback i'm sure. I'm a huge doors fan and want to see you play.

Within four bars of any song that he played, you knew it was Tom Petty. Definitely had his own sound. At first I didn't know much about him, but Jim Ladd played him a lot on his radio show. Finally said to myself "I got it! This guy is GREAT!" I hope Tom's songs never go out of style. They never will for me. - RK ... See MoreSee Less

David ReedI watched an interview with tom, on the doors, he was asked what his first impression of the doors were...he paused with a shit eating grin, and said, dark. Of course he went on about them, but i just loved watching bands from the 60's or any band for that matter, their reaction when asked about the doors, watching the gears winding, and the puzzled look on their face, as they're trying to describe them.

Josie KlapperAfter The Doors TP&THB were my second American band that I totally fell in love with. The Door's had me since I was like 8 years old (Weren't what my older sisters were into) and TP at Breakdown... Back in the day I could play (not the proper Flamenco based, but) everything The Doors did, and every note of the first four TP &THB albums.... Then my folks got tired of me trying to be a "starving artist/musician" and I ended up in the Army. Wish I had told them where to go, even if I just ended up doing Dylan in coffee houses. Oh Well, we all have regrets. If that's my worst I'm doing pretty good.
