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.”

Do you ever get so tired of being asked about Jim,when YOU were the one that obviously had the most raw talent? Geez...YOU wrote all the hits,and don't EVEN get me started on Light My Fire...YOU, ROBBIE KRIEGER,are the most unsung heroic rock star of all time.HELLO,I LOVE YOU ROBBIE!!!♥️

Not only can you play, you play what's beautiful. You have a great ear for Beauty, and you and the lads cooked up some pretty good tunes. Saw The Doors twice in '68, love you forever.

Hello Robby, will you release the full flamingo solo that was cut out of Spanish Caravan? We’d love to hear the whole piece!

When are you coming to Club XL Live in Harrisburg, PA? Come on Robby Light my Fire! Come with The Ultimate Doors out of Ohio!

Robby Krieger, my question for you, is would you like to put a piece together? I have these lyrics that have been waiting to find music to go with them, since my Super Doors & Jim Fan Mom, that went to Heaven in 1995. Not sure if you would like to, but if you actually interested & it's really you, I would love to make it happen for my Mom & I Know Jim would love it too. Thank you Robby for all that you do🔥

I just want to thank you for all the great music!🎶❤

Hey Robby, I met you briefly in 06 I believe it was in Edmonton. Just wondering if there were any audio or visual recordings of that tour?

Listening to "Light my Fire" your solo, change my whole perception of music. Also Ray organ solo.. I can listen to it over and over. Thanks for the inspiration 🙌

Mr Krieger, ask you anything ? .... Were you happy with Oliver Stones movie ? You worked on the set ... Were you happy with the way you were represented on the film ? Looking fwd to your book ... Johns book riders on the storm was really good , read it twice .... the doors are my favourite band ever .... Thankyou sir 🙏

Hi Robby, I have all the records. Must ask you. When you recorded them. Was it hard work and compromising in the group and the record company to reach the final result. You broke new ground. Wear it at the expense of something. And do you still have all the studio recordings. By that I mean demo and footage between it the final version. It's about 8 microphone recordings. With best regards Ulf Bylund from Sweden.

No questions... just thankyou, you and your singing guitar makes me feel happy. Very big gratitude to you Robbie.

ok i'll bite.. when are you going to let me sing for you. i tried to get on the stage when i opened for you in niagara falls many years ago now.. but we couldnt make it happen even tho; i was in a doors tribute also at the time. i channel jim better than anyone, and my pipes are solid at 56 yrs old.

My question to you because I've followed you for years and was wondering how much acid were you doing back in the day ? And what kind ? Blotter..paper ?

Hi Robby, How did you compose. How can I imagine that. Was there a topic that concerned you all four or individually, or a personal experience. How long did it take you to write a song. Which was particularly time consuming. Thank you for your songs, Robby.

I wanna get that book before I head to Paris, France, in a couple weeks. 😉

Moonlight drive is the best

Absolutely awesome..thank you for all the music

My name is Yann Lecomte and I became a musician after listenning to your fantastic band… I also was touch by the voice and style of the lezard king ( and I can do anithing ) Got all he’s poetry in an huged book… But Robby, we also meet us !!! For a memory concert, and we had a hand chake during your show!…. 🤘🏻😜🤘🏻😘

Man im really bummed out that i missed riders on the storms show in Paris.. I love the Doors its my favourite band i just want to Thank you for all the groovy tunes Robby Krieger

Hello, can you show us your amp and pedal setting 🙂 thanks a lot!

Question: what's your opinion of what Jim would have done if he returned from Paris? Another album, done with The Doors, etc.

Hey Robby. Love the music. When are you coming to Wisconsin?

Btw I saw the doors live summer of 72 on Boston Common. I thought Ray stole the show on vocals and playing bass on keyboards.

You are my Idol Mr. Krieger...I would like to know Why you don't use a pick and if that's part of your particular sound?

I would like to ask: What was the most funniest memorable gig with Jim?
