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

AAAMMAZZIINNG Pics! 🙌📷👏👏 Huge Fan!!! 🤘🎸 (Here's a pic I took of you at one of Scott Medlock's Fundraisers at the Moorpark Country Club! It's my all time favorite that I've taken of you!😊)

Robby Kreiger so good to see you still playing and carrying the flame sir. I grew up listening to The Doors when I was a teenager in the late 80s and just getting into the psychedelic world. Your music was the soundtrack to that awakening. I wanted to take the opportunity to say a sincere thank you to being a part of what was a positive experience. Looking forward to hearing the session.

Jill Jarrett Your a master of so many priceless captures

Nice pictures Jill. I'm glad someone is carrying on the torch.🥰

Thanks so much Robby for your FREE live streaming your music will never die.....and you know it!!!!!

Does anybody have a link to the actual video? Is it still up after having been broadcast live?

Robby has a burning desire to play- we atre the lucky ones. Thanks Robby!

Robbie... I have been teaching a guitar student a collection of songs by The Doors. I sing them well and really capture Jim's energy, spirit, aura, vibe, ambience & feeling. We are going to come to Cali and do a duo on the streets with 2 amplifiers. I literally played Love Street with him 20x yesterday as he forgets the chord changes. But I am drilling him until he gets in right. I am 46 and he is 62. We play 4 hours every Saturday. We also play Crystal Ship & Touch Me. I push him to do more like Love Her Madly, Break on Through, Love Me Two Times, Spy in the House of Love, etc.. I remember being 16 years old and being obsessed with the Doors and the Oliver Stone movie. Glad Ray put out the Soft Parade and explained that Oliver grossly distorted the good soul that Jim truly was when he was alive. Maybe someday we can jam. Love Light Peace.

Very cool.

Robby's new album is currently #16 on the Billboard Jazz Chart! Be sure to check it out if you haven't already. Let's get it to #1!The Ritual Begins at Sundown is out today everywhere! Stream or download songs, order the album at smarturl.it/RobbyKrieger

"Today I am releasing my newest solo album, 'The Ritual Begins At Sundown'. It’s my first solo album in a decade and one of my favorites! Had so much fun with this one. I got together with a bunch of great guys, former Zappa players, and we wrote the songs together. We took the songs on the road, and played them live night after night in clubs, working out all the kinks and they got better and better. By the time we got into the studio it was so easy to record since we had played the songs live so many times. It reminded me of how we did the first few Doors albums. If you like it, maybe I’ll do more!" - RK
