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.”

Most people know Robby Krieger as the consummate music artist in his role as former guitar player and songwriter of the legendary band The Doors.
What shouldn’t be surprising is that creativity has no boundaries and many times artistic expression will spill over into more then one medium for the artist.
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.
“I hope my paintings brings joy and love to art lovers for many years to come.” – Robby Krieger

Very sad news to report that Robby's long-time bassist Phil Chen has passed away. Phil was a part of Robby's first "post-Doors band" in 1973 (Butts Band) and joined Ray Manzarek and Robby for a decade of touring with D21C in the 2000s. Phil also played and toured with Rod Stewart and Jeff Beck, among many others. Aside from his extraordinary musical talent, Phil was an incredible human being who would do anything for a friend and always brought a smile to whatever situation he was in. We will miss you Phil. ... See MoreSee Less

He was a rock-solid bass player and a cool stage personality.

nooo loved him and knew him

Rest easy sir! Such a huge loss! Incredibly sweet and talented soul 💔 The big Jam in the sky just got alot more funky

So well said! He brought joy to many, and went out of his way to send wonderful, uplifting notes and a signed album to a teenage girl, who is a budding bassist but struggling inside. She will never forget him! When I asked him to do this as a favor he did not hesitate. What a great man.

That’s Horrible. God bless his family

Wow, RIP Phil, had the pleasure of seeing him with “the doors” 3 times and talk to him the morning after his show in my hometown. He was very cool and receptive

Was great to see him with Robbie a few years ago in Virginia. An incredible show It was . Rip Phil.

Oh so sorry to hear this. We saw him play several times with Robby and always so impressed with his contributions to not only the music but the vibe of the group! RIP and way too young!😞❣️

Sorry to hear! Happy to have met you. RIP 🙏🏻

So sorry to hear this. He was an amazing bass player, with the most infectious smile. I’ll always be grateful to have seen him live and shaken his hand. Rest In Peace Phil. You will be missed.

Loved Phill such a master bass man, RIP

Very sad news, such a solid Bassist & great human being. I met Phil 5 times at different D21C shows. And he always had time for the fans, to chat, sign or take photos. Super nice guy he was, R.I.P. Phil. Thanks for all the great performances you gave us over the years.

I am so sorry. Lots of love and solace to you, his family and friends.

Saw Phil performing with Robby and Ray at the Boston show in 2013. He was incredible. RIP

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear this! I've seen Phil play with Robby many times in and around LA and he was always so much fun to watch and a perfect balance to Robby. Sending condolences to his family and the entire band.

My sincere condolences, Robbie. 🙏🙏💔🙏🙏

I’m sorry for your loss Robbie. Sincere condolences to his family and those that loved him most.

I’m so sorry to hear this… sending my prayers and condolences Robby. Phil was awesome!🙏🏼🙏🏼💕🙏🏼💕

One of the nicest and kindest humans and an extraordinarily talented bass player 🎸🌎❤️🙌. Rest in Power 🌷🌸🌺

What a great talent. Fortunate to have seen him live a few years ago with Robby

Such a sad loss and our heart goes out to Robby Krieger and also to the family of Phil Chen. May Phil’s memory always be a blessing.

Sorry for the loss of your friend and jam partner- Phil brightened up the room and helped others be more healthy too. Will eat some miso in his honor- hugs to you and his children and his widely extended music family. I spoke to him a few months ago and knew of his health struggle but It is hard to accept. I told him how loved he is by his fans- hopefully it was of some comfort.

Great man RIP

My condolences. I had the honor to see him perform with D21C a couple of times. 🙏🎶

Many condolences in your time of grieving, Mr. Krieger
