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.”

When Ray Manzarek ‘s family moved to Manhattan Beach, his two younger brothers left the Rick & the Ravens band, Ray replaced them with Robby and John and the awesome Doors music was born.

So sad Ray isn’t here…. He had such a lovely happy energy about him…. In some ways it seems he’s still here, telling all his happy stories of how the Doors wrote songs, and all the adventures of the four of you very young men! Timeless music for the heart and soul. Thank you for remembering Ray, Robby!🙏🏻💕💖

You two were awesome together with the Doors and beyond. The Manzarek–Krieger show in Westbury was incredible.

When you and Ray hit the groove it was like nothing else ever in music. Can’t wait to see your show next month! RIP Ray

Digging the book Robby. RIP Ray!

Ray was an innovator as you were/ are Robby. Thank you for that, the world needs more like you fellows.

Love you forever Robbie. You are the most underrated guitarist of all time and changed my life. Thank you. RIP RDM. 🖤

Wished I could have gone to more performances of his as I lived kind of far away but I felt fortunate to have met him and my mother got to meet him and she is gone now .I have good memories of him .

I had the great honor and pleasure to open for Ray's last Project The Manzarek Rogers Project at their 1st outing at the Ukrainian Cultural Center in Whippany NJ in October of 2011 .What a nice man with a Beautiful Vibe. After I finished my solo set I asked the woman at the merch table in the back of the theater (Roy Rogers significant other ) did Ray say anything about my set and she told me he said " Now that's good" not a bad review from a Rock Icon . He looked great but apparently was dealing with the Cancer that took him out about two years later. So sad.

He and I chatted via FB a few times. He and I grew up in the same general area in Chicago, and he went to the same high school my older brother did. I enjoyed our chats, and miss him.

My first Ray Manzarek experience was getting to see him open for Jefferson Starship in Detroit in the early 2000s. Then I was blessed to be able to see you both together in Detroit on November 11th 2011. I feel like 1 might be one of my lucky numbers now. Ray came out to inspect the stage before the show and some of us were already in the Fillmore and he said hello to all of us and I was so excited to just be acknowledged by him.

Hugs Brother, will live on forever! Thank you for the inspiration.

So many of us miss Ray. Stay well Robby. I am so Blessed to have grown up with you good Sir.

You were one of the greatest duos in music.

I was very lucky to see you, Ray, and John several years prior. One of the best nights of my life. ❤️ RIP Ray❤️

I loved seeing you and him as the Doors of the 21st Century at Jones Beach

❤️❤️❤️ I was lucky enough to see you both before he passed. May Ray’s memory always be a blessing for those who loved him and for the world of rock and roll.

Ray was an extremely talented and kind man. I’m glad I was able to hang out with him when he was recording his “Myth and Reality” spoken word album.

Thanks for the great music and unforgettable poetry! Break on through...

Ray was so talented and I enjoyed the Movie, Break on thru: with Robby and John. When is that going to be available? I met Ray at the Doors Tribute on Film in the late 80's. He was so Awesome. Robby and Ray played so Awesome and got a chance to see them with Ian Astbury in San Antonio, Texas. They were tight. I don't think you will find many musicians who can play keyboard and Keyboard bass at the same time and Jam with one of the best Guitarist like Robby anymore. You guys are still the best. God 🙏

you guys changed the way i hear music. when i heard your live version of unknown soldier, it blew me away. i think i was around 14/15. im still at awe today by the amazing music you all made. im in my early 40s now and still get a thrill when in your music. thank you.

Death makes angels of us all and gives us wings where we had shoulders smooth as ravens claws.

You guys made some great tunes that stand the test of time! 🎸🌟🎼🎹

You made great music together! Loved his interviews

I miss Ray..Love you all,Robbie!
