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.

Never saw the Butts band but loved their first album!

Man don't I wish but unfortunately i was not born yet. I did get to see you,Robby Krieger, at a Jimi Hendrix experience concert in Gulf Shores Alabama. That was the closest I've came to a Doors member! Was a GREAT night. Will cherish it forever ♥️

I saw him at the Van Dyke in Schenectady back in 1999. Earlier that year I saw Ray Manzarek at the same place.

I"ve always been a huge Robbie fan, but never thought he got the props he deserves from his fellow musicians. A big exception is Carlos Santana, who talks about him in his memoir. If just one other musician praises you and really understands what you're trying to do, and it's Carlos Santana, you could do a hell of a lot worse! I saw the Robbie Krieger Band at the Wadsworth, sometime around 1991 I think it was.

Well I've seen the Doors of the 21st Century with Ian Astbury on vocals, twice, here in Paris, I had the chance to get my copy of L.A Woman signed by both Ray and Robby, I could share my memories about it. Peace ✌

I just came here to say I say you 7 years ago in toledo ohio at the Hollywood casino. And it was definitely on my bucket list to see anyone from the doors live ! And you guys did not disappoint!! Chad Wackerman on drums a member from zappas band ! Robby Krieger and the soul kitchen toledo ohio wants you back! As soon as live music can resume.

The closest I came to a Doors affiliation was waiting in line for an hour or so at Will Call at the Greek Theatre in the early 1980s. Ray Manzarek was in line next to me. We were both there to see Jan And Dean live. He was a HUGE fan of theirs, as am I. We talked music the whole time, and not once did the subject of his own work come up. Nice guy! Anyway, all the best on this forthcoming project.

Robby Krieger is the best and most innovative guitarist ever! I started listening to The Doors when I was 6 years old in 1967z. I was too young to see The Doors. Never did see the Butts band or Red Shift. Wish I did. I’d like to interview Robby and John one day soon and video the interview. I’ve got a small team of talent to handle the production in LA and NY. I’ve got a lot of good questions for Robby and John.

I know, not the '70's but I was at the Doors of 21st Century show in Boston around 2012 where Robby fell off the stage while playing. He popped right back up like nothing happened and finished the concert. Ray didn't even notice and kept playing throughout. I was also at the Atlantic City show that same year and saw Robbie perform at the Big E in Massachusetts before Covid. The fact I was able to see some semblance of The Doors play in person made me, as someone who wasn't alive when they were a full band, appreciate the band even more. I can't even imagine what it would have been to see the band play together but seeing part of the band live was still better than any popular music today. Hoping John and Robbie tour once things get back to normal, though doubtful that will happen.

The Doors of the 21st Century played at Summer Fest in 2004 at Grand Beach Manitoba. Ian Astbury on vocals.

I saw The Doors at the Forum I think in 1969. Morrison sat down, asked for smokes and 1,000 packs hit the stage. I went to study my Guru Idol Flamenco Man. A big event in my life, at 12 years old, had been buying the guitar tablature book that came out in 1968. I was in big trouble at school but that book handed me every single lick on the first album. I got away from all blues all the time and really started a journey with Robbie, which thanks to him, I am still on. The guy invented his own music; his driving artistry is so relevant today; he is just a Comet of a roll model for me, a quiet guitarist, one of Robby's greatest fans.

I saw Robby and Ray at Costa Mesa...a magical night full of great music and Dave Brock sang....Ray seemed in high spirits...he wasn't with us much longer....and then there was Robs amazing guitar playing....made me wish i was around to see cousin Jim do his thing.

I attended a show in 2002 in Virginia Beach/ Chesapeake Virginia. Ian Astbury sang Jim’s lyrics and did a great job. Later bumped into Robby on the hotel elevator and asked for a autograph. Of course I didn’t have a pen. I followed him to his room and he got a pen and signed autographs for everyone in my party. What a great memory and such a nice guy as Robby Krieger.

I didn’t attend but this is your cousin in Detroit-Bob Eston’s daughter. I have tried to get in touch with you over the past number of years. Even went to Indiana a while back when you played in the park and had to stop early. Tried to get you a note but that didn’t happen. You can IM me

I saw/met Robbie (with Eric Burdon) at The Bacchanal in San Diego in the 90s. Great story, wrong decade! Good luck with your project!❤️🎶😎

Saw Robby and Eric Burdon together at The Palomino in the 80s. They played songs by The Animals, then songs by The Doors with Eric on lead vocals! Incredible! ⭐⭐

Robbie Krieger band with his son waylon on vocals put on a great show. Robbie playing and conversing between songs enjoyed immensely and Waylon does Jim's vocals justice.

Unfortunately i werent born till 1970 im from liverpool uk . however myself and my wife were on holiday in new york a couple of years ago when i heard robby krieger was playing the whiskey so as a surprise to my wife i got tickets and flew to L.A to watch him. His son was singing on stage with him and what a gig it was. Absolutely amazing

I never got to see Ray, but I did have an occasion to email chat with him for three days back in my My Space days (2007?)! He was a Great human being, and he told me yes, Jim actually did die in Paris! Let me know if you would like to hear the whole story, R.I.P. Ray Manzarek...

Unfortunately not as I'm too young to have been to the 70s concert but at the age of 10 I first heard Riders On The Storm wow my mind opened to a new World thank you for your Music ❤

Robbie solo project, Austin, TX, around '04 on sixth street. On Jim's birthday. Amazing show, really felt Jim and the rest of the guy's spirit that night.

I didn't go to any 1970's concerts, but got a bunch of hall of fame DVDs and even have the video of Ed Sullivan show where Jim Morrison up set Ed with light my fire and couldn't get higher lyrics.

Saw you in the early 2000's in the Ziggodome in Holland... Ray also.... and Ian Eastbury singing for Jim..... awsome concert.. never forget this ever! But it was freaking cold outside and forget my coat lol... great gig though!

Only saw shows from last decade, great barrington was a great show, and albany NY was a fantastic show that was well over 2 hours in length! One of those teams where you expect good things and it turns out much better then you could have hoped!

I saw The Doors of The 21st Century several years ago in Florida, Once at Coral Sky Amphitheater and Once at Sunfest , that was Exciting seeing two members of The Doors Play their Music

Best slide work ever on that song with the vibrato.going at the same time and the slide moving without picking at certain times makes it sound like a nother instrument.My favorite live song of yours.Waiting for the sun was Heavy metal and as Black Sabbath in 69.Very underated Robbie,very.Very influential.
