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.”

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.

Time stands still...or moves at a different pace..while playing live music. Music is your only friend..until the End!

Absolutely! I’m addicted to music, in all honesty, both listening and playing.โœŒ๏ธโค๏ธ๐ŸŽธ

Music has never abandoned me, or lied to me. Music has always been my one true friend who doesn't judge me or make me feel less about myself out of jealousy or spite. Music is always there for me.

I lock myself in my music room for 30 minutes when I get home from work and play to decompress. Music IS my therapy!!!

๐ŸŽผ When the music is your special friend…

Music has helped me relax and helps to listen to while doing mundane work tasks in life, but I can only imagine what beautiful music there will be in Heaven. That’s really the only thing that’s purposeful and lasting and once there we’ll need nothing to escape from.

ALL DAY EVERYDAY ROBBY! I have 7 more days until I'm LA bound baby! I'm super excited to see you guys play again!

Continually. And the Doors are a large part of that. The live series with Philly, New York, Vancouver, etc has been amazing. Only wish there was more…

I have been a musician since I was 3 years old . I started playing piano by ear and then took lessons from the time I was 5 until I was 17 . I took music theory and music appreciation classes in high school . Music was always around when I was growing . One of my favorite songs to this day is Riders On The Storm . The way I love to listen to this masterpiece is in the dark and with headphones on . You get a full escape and let your imagination do the work .

how many long night walks listening to your solos , live concerts with long version of my fav songs , so many thoughts and resolutions , just thank you for so much !

Ever since I realized music has been an escape for me

Heck yes! Celebrate the good times and work through the bad.

i was trying to play an old pump organ at my gramma's at 6 & i played a Sears guitar with strings 1/2" off the fretboard at 8 so yeah so i've been figuring out the puzzle of music for 50 yrs with my friends.you're my friend

Allways Robby! Music is my only friend...

The great escape ๐ŸŽธ

Always Robby. I’m in two bands now and I enjoy every minute.๐ŸŽธ๐Ÿค˜

Yes, when I started listening to the Doors when I was fifteen years old. The Ghost Riders in the Sky guitar licks you did really helped me through some dark days. Thanks ๐Ÿ˜Š

Music is your only friend... until the end... until the eeeeeennnnd!!! ๐ŸŽถ

All the time stress reliever for me Escape from all

One thing I've always had is my music!!

I have no music skills whatsoever. In fact in music class at school I would always be given the block of wood and stick . Not sure if I even got that right :p But my wife and I enjoy going to live shows and watching greats like you do your magic .

Music is life.

Gotta Love Robby Krieger!!!

In a sense! It almost always improves my mood!

Yes. I've always loved music
