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

If only I lived in Cali'. Thanks for coming to a suburb of Chicago though. It was a great show! Come back to Michigan again someday. You have a big following in Grand Rapids. The Magic Bag was a great venue to see you at too.

I've had the privilege of seeing a lot of singers and bands over decades now, but one of the highlights of all of that was seeing Robby perform live a few months ago. The show in Jacksonville, FL recently was absolutely superb! Being on the east coast down south, I never thought that I would see Robby perform live. But then it happened! If you get the chance to see Robby, then don't think twice. Just do it! And you don't even have to thank me later!

I saw Robby Krieger in Pittsburgh. He was amazing! The band he has put together… amazing! They played 2 hours and 15 straight minutes… with just the greatest set list. If you can… go see them. Just an epic concert❤️❤️❤️❤️

Great interview at the radio station. Really enjoyed the music, sounds really cool and great

Coming from Virginia to the Whiskey to see you and the band Robby! My retirement gift to myself!

Robby is amazing ❤️

Come to Mexico City Robby! 🎸✌🏻🇲🇽

Come to the North East again please Robby !

Just listened. Great interview Robby Krieger!

An Oklahoma fan. Wishing Robie well.

Where I can get tickets to see Robby… please info

I"m eastern time (Florida).. Is it 3 or 4 on the time difference? We are 4 minutes away of it being noon here.

I’ll see you September 17!!!! ✌️❤️🎶

His book is a must read!

Portland needs a show!

Bom dia Robby😍🤩

Cuándo vienes a Guadalajara México Robby....???

Loved the Show in DesPlaines, IL. Come back to Chicago soon!!!

Great show Arcada Theatre Des Plaines, Illinois 🎸 🎹 🎸

I was At Des Plaines theater gig. What an honor to hear and see you play and was even lucky enough to shake your hand and get a pick! Just finished your book, amazing and thanks for keeping everything straight for us fans. You are a true legend!!!

Come Back to the east coast, would love to see you play The Queen in Delaware!

Saw the Des Plaines show and it was fantastic. They added "Love Street" to the encore. Great setlist, two of the highlights were "20th Century Fox" and "When the Music's Over." Thanks to Robby and crew for keeping the flame going and thanks to Onesti for bringing them to the Chicago area.

Does Mr Robby Krieger think he will meet with fans after the show

Texas?

Robby, I found this years ago when I attended University High School. It was in a bag that contained a slide machine viewer in the library. I'm curious to know if that hand written phone number is of anyone you may have known. Thanks

Sarah Cagle how about des plaines IL?

Hope u guys rocked their brains out. 😀😁😎❤

Awesome! Cant wait to see You at The DesPlaines Theater, with My 25yr old Daughter!!!

Thought the guy in the back was Chris Cornell at first glance.

Exciting news, Robby.

Robbie Krieger when I saw him jam with the Experience Hendrix Tour at Portland, Oregon in 2017.

Defo need to come to the UK Robbie.Let us in man.😎😎

Any plans of coming to Europe? I'd love to see you in Spain!!

Big thank you for blessing us with that super amazing show yesterday. Krieger and the Soul Savages we can't wait to see you again. Also super big blessings love and thank you to Robby Krieger for all the 💜💜💜💜💜💜you showed my son Casey!! What a very special day that will never be forgotten!!!! We can't thank you enough!!!Can't wait for the whiskey show!!!! Bless you and those hands!!!🙏💜🎹🎸🌟💃

Fortunate to have experienced Robby Krieger in concert at downtown Springfield, MO location over twenty years ago…a great show, wonderful talent, and thank you also for recent videos and interviews on “how to”, little tidbits of trivia, and all you do. Thanks for the music and memories. Safe and happy travels.

That is an awesome band.

Fantastic! So happy 😊! Love 💕 Robby Krieger’s music!!!

Awesome news I regret we couldn't get tickets for The Whiskey. I recently had a fairly mild stroke that set us back but feelin' better. I was thinking about it today when I rocking to Love her Madly on the radio. Good luck with the tour and maybe the fam and I can catch a show in future. Much love ✌️💖🕉️🙏

Congrats on your new band, Robby! I recently saw you in Jacksonville, so you're going to have to come back very soon with the new lineup! The Jacksonville show was amazing. I had waited a long time to see you perform, and it was well worth the wait! You had some trouble with your guitar during "Moonlight Drive", and stopped the show, but then said you'd play it again, as it was your favorite to play slide on. And then you did! Thanks very much for that, and for caring so much!

Just saw you play in Melborne a couple weeks back with Waylon and the crew and I have to say I hope you kept the same keyboard player. That guy was in-fucking-credible!

Absolutely Awesome, Congratulations on your New Band!! Love you Robbie 🤩💜🤩

Let me know if you need a backup singer

Fellas if you ever need vox, I’m only antipodean (geographically) not out in the perimeter where there’re no stars 🙏 Also I look forward to hearing more of your beautiful genius Robby!! Dig you other groovers big time too 🕺🏿

Believe it or not, we were just talking about The Doors over dinner last night! I love when that happens. Mostly about what a fantastic drummer John is, but still … it’s great to be relevant and revered 💯💙 Robby, keep doing it!

Very Groovy, saw him solo prior but with this great new band it should really be Rockin!

Sweet ... In process of reading Set the Night on Fire. On the chapter about the black eye. In the middle of it at least. Up to the part where you were on your fishing trip and the van went off the road. Loving this book 🔥🔥🔥

Great news Robby—can’t wait to hear you guys play!

Don't give me Breaking News with Robbie Krieger's name in the headline first thing in the morning, my stomach sank into my mattress! 😳

Robby, you looking good and hope the best for the group, but for God sakes talk to Lynn about your attire before you hit the stage! Chico Cal has a great venue at the Sierra Nevada Brewry "The Big Room".

Awesomeeeee, I'll see you on the 10th at Vibrato! Sending much love to you and Lynn!

Damn Robbie how about a little bit more notice next time?! I would have loved to catch the Santa Monica show if it wasn't the day after tomorrow!!

Mr. Krieger, please come to NYC!!!! Suggestion: The Iridium in Times Square (Les Paul had a regular gig there and I recently saw Carl Palmer there. )

Looking good Robby! I just finished reading your book 👍
