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

Looking forward to the article, Robby!!! And as noted so many times above you are a legend ..... one that I grew up with from way back in the ‘60s and still today. Be safe and we hope to see you soon after this virus mess clears up.

You’re a legend Robby!!! I’ll never forget the dude hanging on your car windshield a couple years ago at SaddleRock .., he was right, you truly are a legend !!! Honored to know you.

Looking forward to reading that interview Robby. Please stay safe, strong, positive, and most of all stay healthy. All the best from up here in Canada. Cheers!

Robby ROCKS! 🎸🎤👍 The Doors are the absolute Best ☝️

Robby is part of the era of the great 60's guitarists --that to this day goes unmatched in rock in roll as Billy Idol lets out his rebel yell...

Looking forward to seeing you live again.

Look forward to it! Hope you're well Robby☆🎸

Guitar players - have you ever wanted to learn a Doors tune from the man himself? Grab your guitar, your amp, and tune in, because Robby Krieger will be giving a special video guitar lesson soon.

Drop which tune you'd like Robby to teach in the comments.

They called us the doors of Las Vegas lol they use to say we took off where the doors left off and it was by far the best compliment but my band was never ever comparable the doors will and are my favorite band of all time all my writing style was tribute to them

ALL of them. Crystal Ship was one of my faves. There is a part on there though I would love to see repeated more times..

Robby, I remember asking you about this at Harper’s Ferry around 1996. So glad you’re doing it!! Hope it will be on dvd or something. 🤞❤️

And flamenco style for Spanish Caravan

Luna Cruise. I just listened to this band. It's like The Doors version 2020. Morrison is alive in that voice. Check it out! open.spotify.com/track/71ptT7h434vvCILsAT10mB?si=0ja5XVJoTWWzG4oiu5YdnQ
