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 artโ€ฆnow 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.

Robby Krieger is one of the most underrated guitarist!

I still say Robbie was totally underrated as a guitarist. A lot of the drama of Doors' song was with him, not to mention, he wrote or co wrote many of their classics.

Love you robbie!! You gave the music of the doors it's soul. My favorite guitarist.

Read Robby's book. It's really good and will help you understand the Doors a lot better.

Robby was the musical greatness in the Doors band, his guitar playing is incredible to listen but the solos always are seamless in the rhythm of the song which is no easy feat!

Hey Robbie! Nice to see you're still rocking. I was at the Boston Arena show in 1970 (for the live album recording) and again on Boston Common, when you were playing as a threesome. The Doors were, and are, one of my favorite bands. Thanks for all the great music.

Looks like might be same guitar when he played with The Doors.

These two've known each other since the 60's๐Ÿค™

Love Alice Cooper โค๏ธ

I saw Robby in Pensacola Florida. The night was like a dream come true fir me! I will always hold that gig special in my musical mind! I'm looking forward to going to LA in July to see him at the Whisky for the celebration of The Soft Parade.

Your awesome , Spanish caravan is my favorite of all time , tho all your musics is so timeless .

Saw you in Chicago 2 years ago. So glad you're still touring! You're the best and The Doors have been my favorite group since I was 5 years old โค๏ธ

That’s what I’m talking about! My husband and I met at your show in Boston in 2013. You gave me a hug backstage thanks to Arthur Barrow who bought me to see you. Best moment of my life.

So excited for Chicago! ๐Ÿ”ฅ

I miss my car and being queen of the hwy but that was stupid

Loving your book, it's the perspective everyone has always longed to hear, so good!

Robby it was great meeting you at the former asylum in Portland Maine and singing your songs and the guitar lesson appreciate your talent ๐Ÿค ๐ŸŽธ

maybe 3: -SG, - ES335, - Rick Turner Renaissance

A couple old SG's ought to do it......when I tech'd for you in SLC you brought 1....back ups from rental co.

Hi Robby, Ryan who played keys for you on NYC dates in 2016 and I have retired to the Hilton Head area of South Carolina. His new Doors tribute Waiting for the Sun made their debut here Tuesday 6/12 and have an upcoming date on HH June 19. A lot of devoted Doors fans from up north down here. You should play Magnolia Hall in Sun City. A very nice 580 seat theater with great sound, staging and they will put you in for three weeknights in a row. Al Jardine played here a recently and did well.

When I saw you play with Ray, it seemed like a guitar tech was handing you a different guitar for every song.

Come back to Florida โค๏ธ

Hi - I proudly own 007 of your Les Paul Custom Aged models. Amazing guitar!

Is it sold out? Probably a dumb question.

And one day @ The Wellmont in Montclair, of course ? ๐Ÿ‘

Play Other Voices in full!

67 SG, 68 SG, 54 Les Paul, 2 acoustic guitars, Turner & Ramirez, Vox Tone pedal & Magnatone amp. Plus dozen of GHS Boomers strings packages. Hope this helps ๐Ÿซข

Gibson SG (Nickname "Diavoletto" in Italy) Do it, Robby, Do it!

I've watched you play at least 3 guitars in one show, maybe 4.

Come to Fresno we are only a Moonlight Drive away from you!

Somewhere between 5 to 1.

Enough to come over to Chicago after please.

Travel light. One guitar.

7 guitars

Need to get back to Saint Augustine!

7 guitars!

Awesome! I have a hand painted longboard!

I bought a Squire jazz master... I put "real" Fender Jazz master pickups in it... I figured..what the heck...and made it kind of a "abalone"...Surf.. special.... I painted the pick guard...pickups..etc..put on abalone knobs...etc..

I'm a purist when it comes to guitars. Maybe because getting new guitars was always few and far between, so I can't imagine getting one, then painting it. I don't like even seeing a sticker put on a guitar. It just feels incredibly irreverent to me.

What is that ? Sorry

Robby Krieger is that one of your Acoustic Amplifiers ah La July 5 1968 also the day I was born ?? And that guitar looks amazing like a good or bad acid trip or both!!!

I saw one of your guitars at the Hard Rock in Baltimore. It look like it had a racing stripe.

Cmon Robby bring those cool guitars to Newcastle Australia. Cmon Robby do it man do it!!!

Badass!! Love it!! I'd love to hear too!!

Sweet! Hi Robby Krieger. My dream is to meet you in person because I LOVE The Doors for the last 46 years since your decade-old peak in 1968. The Doors were my favorite group in 1968, and I just have to share with Robby and John Densmore the impact their bandmate Jim Morrison had on me. They are gonna get a kick out of it because in another lifetime, I was vicariously emulating him because in my youth hood days, I went by Jim real name James. Anyways, is Robby planning on coming to Atlanta any time soon? I want to meet him and John so bad.

how kool & how fitting for you - el maestro of the SG

Great guitar Robby

YOU painted that guitar Robby Krieger! I wanted to buy it but had to hold on to the money. ๐Ÿ˜Žโค๏ธ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Looks nice, but it’s not the guitar. You played with a friend of mine Vince.

♥๏ธ๐Ÿ”ฅ Robby never die ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿค˜

That looks awesome!!

You’re the coolest guitarist I’ve ever seen!

Wow. That is a very strange guitar Robby! Keep on rocking. ๐ŸŽธ ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Sorry, Robby, but it looks absolutely awful.

I was very lucky to have met him and talked with him for awhile. He's very much a gentleman

Most definitely a very trippy guitar there Robby

Definitely wild looking!

Woohoo Looks very psychedelic ๐Ÿ™‚

The song Gibson is the Best...yeah yeah in the rest.

Hey Robby, Very cool. Love you buddy.
