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.”

Richard PerkinsFor profound influence in music- love that, how about one more? For profound influence in musicianship by a band in which all the members were amazing instrumentalists and took their audience to depths never attained before! Happy 50th for The Doors!

Dennis HiattHi Robby, thx for the picture with you and John at SeaTac airport Friday morning. I passed onto the Denver tribute to The Doors named The Strange Parade that John requested "Wishful Sinful". They are performing twice this weekend in honor of Jim's bday and were very happy to know that you and John are now aware they exist! Their Jim is $ in the bank. Please check them out if you have a moment at youtu.be/GpHJRgx-bUk

Looking for a rock star gift for the holidays? I honestly can't say enough about Pati's Rum Cakes. They have been featured at the Medlock-Krieger event for years, because I can't get enough of them! Be sure to ask for the special "Rock Star" cake, that they made specifically for the Medlock-Krieger event. Sooooooooo good! -RK

Mick IsaacsSuch a pleasure to hear from a a living legend! When are you coming back to South Florida again. Saw you about 12 years ago in West Palm with doors 21st century. You, Ian, and John blew my mind as well as inspiring my son the guitarist. Who I might of plays the same model guitar as yours. Thank you for all that you have created!

Michael MichaelHey Robbie. Isnt it time that you and maybe John did a quick visit and tour to Australia? I can play bass for you and even sing. But seriously, we have Roger Waters, Gene Simmons and even Roy Orbison touring down under. You guys could sell out any venue. Please consider a quick tour here, but make sure you play Adelaide.

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.
