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.

โ€œFuck! Jeff was my idol, but I never got to meet him. He was by far the best with the whammy bar - his guitar never went out of tune. Lately, my band and I have been playing โ€˜Freeway Jamโ€™ because my good buddy Phil Chen, who passed away last year, played on the original version on Jeffโ€™s great album, BLOW BY BLOW. Now I have two reasons to play that song as a tribute - hope to meet you up there someday, Jeff!!!โ€ -Robby Krieger

I can’t believe you never met him!! RIP

do tribute we all join you maybe at the Roxy club LA I was with you when Adam and ant playing at the Roxy tribute for doors you may not remember me that long time ago thanks to sharing this๏ฟผ๏ฟผ๏ฟผ๏ฟผ๏ฟผ

Hopefully Jeff is jamming with Stevie and Eddie. Looking forward to that show up in Heaven.

Sad news..he could make the guitar sing ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ’”

I did get to meet him on the You Had It Coming sessions and still cannot believe that happened. Devastated beyond words. First Phil, who was a dear friend since I was age 12, and now Jeff this is a real tough one. One luv Robbie

Rest in paradise Jeff...one of the best guitarist....

Absolutely... I was lucky to see him with Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page at the benefit concert for Ronnie Lane in SF in the early 80s Love your guitar playing , be well

Loved his version of Nessun Dorma." There'll never be another like him!๐Ÿ’”"

Your my favorite and I did get to meet you.. Time holds no hands in the end.. Jeff was so amazing.... one hell a band outside of this place that's for sure...

Yes Robby, very sad...๐ŸŒท๐ŸŽธ

Prayers n condolences.yotally shaken by the news .i still.play blue wind.my go to guys in.the yardbirds. .doors respect too.g

One of the best ๐Ÿ˜ข

2 of the only guitar players with truly distinctive sounds

Robby Krieger your my idol ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™Œ

An absolute legend๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿ˜ž๐Ÿ’™

He inspired and influenced so many He will be missed.

Amen

So many of our sacred song bearers are leaving this world ... who'll strum the strings of our wounded souls once the last one departs? Perhaps they'll leave trails of celestial sound that lead deep into the origin of our being ... I pray we meet again in the warm embrace of where it all began.

Sorry to hear this

A True Guitar God

so sorry peace

I'm sorry Robby. I didn't get to meet you (twice in Orlando) or Jeff (in Nashville) with (Ann Wilson and Paul Rodgers). I'm so glad that I've gotten to see you both (and Ann and Paul). I'm surprised my jaw didn't shatter from hitting the ground from seeing you and Jeff.

RIP. JEFF !!!!!!

Highway Jam is right there in the good groove.

I saw Jeff during his ‘Blow by Blow’ period in a fairly big venue in Nashville. The stage was low enough to lean on and we were in fact leaning on the stage just a few feet away from Jeff during his performance. My friend Mark, a guitar player and someone who could be obnoxiously funny at times, wanted to give Jeff some picks. Mark kept hollering Jeff’s name and finally, after several minutes of Mark, Jeff abruptly looked in our direction and gave us a not too happy look… Mark finally shut up.

๐ŸŽธ๐Ÿ˜Žโค๏ธโค๏ธ๐ŸคฉAgain - best ever!

Happy Birthday Robbie. I used to play drums with Forrest & Dave Brock in Wild Child & Strange Daze. Played with you at the Whiskey.

Feliz cumpleaños ๐ŸŽ‚ maestro!! Larga vida The Doors ... You make the Magic come True with your guitar !! Thanks for being such an inspiration.

Happy Birthday Robbie!!! You are THE BEST ๐Ÿ™Œ

My best friend passed away yesterday morning his favorite song was 5 to 1 and he was 51.Thanks Happy birthday ๐ŸŽ‰ Robby

Happy 77th! Elvis 88th today! Thanks for the music!

I just happened to watch the tv documentary of The Doors' performance on the Isle of Wight Festival 1970. A great show, and during the guitar solo in 'Light My Fire' I noticed Robby Krieger was playing a cute little riff that was part of his improvised guitar piece; he played it twice and it had me pondering where I knew this from, and suddenly I recognized it as a guitar part in Alice Cooper's 'Halo Of Flies', a track from his 1971 album 'Killer.' Not until 1973 'Halo Of Flies' became a single, after a Dutch interview with Alice Cooper seemed to have convinced him the track was worth it. So this little improvised riff in Robby Krieger's solo on the Isle of Wight Festival 1970 inspired Alice Cooper, that is what I thought. Has anybody else noticed this?

Happiest of 77 Sunset Strips birthday to you, Robby. The Doors are my <3, always and forever!

Happy belated Birthday, Robby. What can I say, you've influenced my entire life, I love you and am more grateful than you might know.

Happiest of days!

Happy Birthday! The Doors are my favorite band!

... Happy birthday, Robby! Take care buddy.

Thank you Robby, for all the great music. I know of no one besides Hendrix and Garcia who was so far ahead of his time in talent and execution!

amen to that!!
