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.”

Robby Krieger is no exception as demonstrated in his creation of a collection of spectacular, never-before-seen works of art…now available to art lovers and Robby fans.
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.

My friend took photos of Jim in 1967 at the Devonshire Meadows Raceway. He blew up one of the negs and created this amazing 9 foot mural on my wall. I’m a lucky girl! ❤️

It was a privilege & honor to finally meet you guys at Tower Records in Hollywood at the release of The Doors BoxSet back in 1997….. I will forever cherish…. Lived The Doors then & still do to this day…. Break On Through

Saw the 21st century Doors with Ian Asbury in London years ago. Very awesome. 💕

Born in ‘68 in Hollywood, and not far from all the clubs where The Doors performed, I missed all the concerts, but the music, videos, books and poetry have been life altering. Thank you Robby!

You’re a good band! You’re a VERY good band!

Here's my interview of Robby and Ray a few years back! youtu.be/yYOmr6o4QZY

I was born and raised on the Doors, too young to see a show though. I have listened to The Doors daily since the early 80's! My all time favorite. Catching one of your shows at The Whiskey is still on my bucket list. I can't wait for this ❤

I was a bit too young, but I'm 55 now and for the last 45 years I've enjoyed the music, it's very Profound, Thank You!

Wow that’s an awesome pic of Jim. Nice pic mate

First time I saw them is person was at the Tower Records on Sunset Blvd in 98' when they released the 4 disc box set. Such an honor to meet them, shake their hands and get the set, the booklet signed. Even met the late Danny Sugerman that night. Also saw the Harley Davidson 100th Anniversary Doors of the 21st Century at the California Speedway in Fontana in 2003. The Day of the Doors in Venice in 2017 too...

With the combined talent of Robby and Ray and Jim and John, the Doors music is timeless and eternal. Each band member contributed to the incredible music that even younger generations are discovering . I listen to their music even after fifty years and it never gets old. The Doors are forever.

Awesome! I had the privilege of seeing you and Ray play a show in Detroit on 11/11/2011 - absolutely amazing!

I was too young to attend a doors concert but I’ve seen a lot of footage and wish Id been there! I would have given anything to have seen them in person!

I played in a band in high school that played the Doors music. A very special band !

Thank you thank you thank you and hope more doors fans share their pictures and memories just can’t get enough of this band im 44 been with them since I was 11 years old never left your side every time Robby comes into Pittsburgh I’m there thank you thank you thank you

Wow Jim not wearing his leathers

Was that Billy Mumy as Lost in Space Billy Mumy? Was he even old enough to be there?

Was unfortunately born in the ‘90s, so won’t ever get the opportunity to see ‘em! But my favourite band, Robby inspired me to start electric guitar, (after playing acoustic all my life), and some say that I have a way with words, with my poetry and songs, and that I look a bit like Pam. ❤️

Saw the Doors of the 21st Century in Glasgow SECC in 2004 was in total awe seeing Robbie and Ray an absolutely amazing night would have loved to seen Jim Morrison back in the day too my fave band ever ❤️

I got turned on to The Doors as a teenager in the 1990's. I would give anything to be able to go back in time and catch a show live, and in their prime! Must have been amazing!

Starting to look like Jerry!

I have always loved "The Doors" you guys were definitely ahead of your time.

I’ve had this for years a co- worker who lived in Lockport,NY got this signed for me , I’ll never get rid of this , thank you

I first started listening to the doors about 30 years ago, still my favourite band, went to Jim’s grave 1990 when you could still sit around it , had a great time in Paris, spent two weeks just at the grave fantastic days, never get bored listening to the music

Wow ... that's a great pic of Jim. I was too young to attend a Doors concert. I listen to your music daily and have a fair amount of your music, memorabilia. Thanks, Robby

The times I’ve been asked: if I could go back in time for one thing, what would it be? I always answer: to see The Doors in concert!! Jim passed when I was 1 year old unfortunately and I’ve loved the band since I was 12 ❤️

The Doors was my life during the 90’and 2000 years, i saw just the The Doors of the 21th Century , here 🇱🇺 for a Concert Luxemburg-City with Ray, John , Robby and Ian ! Unforgettable concert 😍

I shall complete my time machine and travel back tonight. See you tomorrow.

Met John at Kent State for a book signing and got to see Ray and Robbie at the House of Blues in Cleveland. Some of my all time favorite memories.

I wish I got to see The Doors with Jim! But I did see you and Ray at The Whisky with Dave Brock! Would be happy to review when you need 💕

One could only wish to have such an experience 😔

I was born in '73 so I missed out! (My Mama says I was born too late in life & I missed my era). I was 14 when I fell in love with The Doors. I was riding around with some friends, listening to I95 (used to be a classic rock station) and I heard this sound that just.....hit me...then I heard this voice "Keep your eyes on the road your hands upon the wheel....." and that was it! I was hooked!! Been a fan every since buying tapes, tshirts, that one record I found years ago (I keep looking), CD box sets, books, the movie (VHS, CD, Blu Ray lol). In April of 2018 I got to go to Venice Beach, Santa Monica and The Whisky!!! Oh, I thought I was in Heaven!! Been trying to get back since!!

Soooo would have loved to experience one of their concerts.Loved their music for ever.🤠

Man I wish I coulda been around to see them! 😞

I was born in 75, so I missed out unfortunately. I'm planning on going to L.A one day and see where it all started

Love The Doors 🧡❤️ Love From Bangladesh

Unfortunately I never got to see the Doors live but I did get a chance to see Doors of the 21st Century here in 🇨🇦 and also Robbie Krieger live in Toronto at the El Mocambo bar. Both were awesome.👍💯🎵🎶

Not so much an "I saw them live" salute, but something for the hardcore collector: On a trip to New York City in 1968 (when Waiting For The Sun had just been released), I was in a dime store (Woolworth's, if I remember correctly). They had a rack of pre-recorded mini cassettes, including one with four tracks that included Soul Kitchen and Take It As It Comes. Bought it for $1.88. I've had MANY offers since then to take it off of my hands. Not a chance.

I think most of them are dead.All that is left is us who were born around 1969 and heard the music playing from your generation.When I was 14 I was a Doors freak.I remember being in an 1966 impala ragtop in 1974 listening to light my fire and LA. woman.Most kids do not get their own stereo till they are a teenager,And that is when the magic happens.I learned guitar from listening to the doors.I think when the musics over break on thru and waiting for the sun were the first metal songs,even before sabbath.When was break on thru written 1965 66?All I know is it led me to play heavy metal.I actually have a version of Waiting for the sun with drop D tuning its baddass.

Wow I’d a bee been so lucky 1981 I woke up to the intro of light my fire playing in the lounge , in a daze and 10 years old I walked down and into the chorus… blown away 50 now and still love ( visited LA and the spots) visited Paris and got my one to one with Jim if only for 28 uninterrupted seconds

Great! I met Robby the first time at Navy Pier. Then I saw him and Ray when they were the Doors of the 21st Century with Ian Astbury from the Cult at the Congress Theater in Chicago. They sounded great too! I saw Robby again at the Double Door and later at the City Winery.

The Doors single handedly started my love of music and my journey through life. Looking forward to the app. Thank you. 🎶

Hi there I'm here in nz and never saw Jim or any of you robby and Ray but have all ways been a fan I have Jim tattoo on my back I resantly whent to doors live tribute band from UK the singer looks a lot like Jim closest I'll ever get I don't think I no any one that doest love or identifi with the doors music and Jim's life all the best matt

My first band, GreyLock Mansion, specialized in performing Doors ‘just like the record’ with baritone Merl Reagle (the all -time foremost) crossword puzzle guru on lead vocals.

Sir, how wonderful does it feel to know that you are a part of true greatness? A form of inspirational art. Simply said " the best of the best".

Any chance your coming to Perth , loved seeing you there with Ray Ian , fantastic experience man

What a great idea Robby. I can't wait to see the reviews

I sadly was not alive back in the day but I do love the doors and I listened to them a lot in college!

It’s always been a dream of mine to meet you Robby and just thank you for all your inspiring art and genius that you blessed upon us via The Doors and your solo works, man. God bless sir.

First listening doors in june 1983, i was 11, and immediately fell in love with them. Alabama song/whiskey bar ❤️❤️❤️
