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.

It's been an honor to know you and share the stage with you Robby....The songs you wrote will be played on the radio around the world forever...The Doors were one of the most unique and great American bands of all time.....wishing u good health and continued longevity......MS

He came to me in a dream 2-1/2 years ago singing lyrics I never heard before. I woke up and wrote down what I could remember. I finished the song the next day. Totally Jim Morrison. Would have loved to have Robby play on it.

Mr Krieger...your style of play helped me find my way as a guitarist. I love your work. I have studied it quite extensively. What the 4 of you accomplished is a incredible amount of solid effort. Timeless to the core.

I am proud to share the same birthday as Jim..Dec. 8th. Thanks for sharing the wonderful photos.

Visited his grave last May. Even though I was born 26 years after his passing, it was very emotional and I am a big fan of The Doors. R.I.P Jim Morrison.

Although he had his demons; he was special and a tremendous talent!
