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.”

Lil Casey is ready for the show he is 10 and the biggest littlest fan of you !!!! We got our tickets !!! Can't wait!!! We love you Robbie kreiger๐Ÿ’–p.s it's his dream to play riders of the storm with you. Bless you๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

I saw him a few years ago with his son singing the Doors songs. It was very interesting and I thought it was a great show. It was weird to hear that unique sound from his guitar that Robby has. Sounds just as great as ever! I wonder if his son is still in the band?

Wish you would come to Anchorage, Alaska, but as my grandma used to say wish in one hand and ๐Ÿ’ฉ in the other and see which gets full first… ๐Ÿ˜‚ I guess I’ll have to come to you. Thanks for posting the dates.โœŒ๏ธ

Robbie, hope to see you in Pensacola, saw you last in Norfolk at the norva, ran into you at the Charlotte Airport. Along with my daughter. Keep on keeping on. Steve mann, wetumpka, al.

I love ๐Ÿธ giggin' . I know a pond where there's ๐Ÿธ๐Ÿธ with legs as big as ๐Ÿ—๐Ÿ— . Otherwise I play music gigs at Piddle Park in Dry Ridge , Kentucky - but you can't do any frog ๐Ÿธ giggin' at Tadpole Lake , because they're a protected species there .

Coming tonight to the Marquee Theater to see you Brother Robby! โœŒ๏ธ๐Ÿ†๐ŸŽธ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ”ฅ #ClassicRockLegend #KingRobby #RK #TheManBehindTheDoors #GuitarHero

Oh yes, please do come to Boston. I would love to go to Whiskey A Go Go, but probably not possible. Reading your book right now. Love it!

Got my tickets already for the whiskey!!!

Come to Mexico City Robby ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฝ๐ŸŽธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

Kinda taken aback how there was no explanation or real announcement of last years tour dates getting canceled last minute. Venue after venue.

Come back to Houston! I would totally go see Krieger a third time!!!

Wish I could be there, please come over to the UK sometime, and I've bought your book!

Please come to Boston! Or Somerville which is 2 miles away and cooler. Lots of venues here

I hope you have shows in Philly,Or Atlantic City. So I can see your show before it's to late.๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผโ€ผ๏ธโ€ผ๏ธโ€ผ๏ธโ€ผ๏ธโ€ผ๏ธ

I want to see Robby Krieger want to come to Cincinnati or Newport Kentucky

Bring it to Austin Texas!

Come back to Texas! Also, what about Robby and John touring with an orchestra?

Devastating news this morning to hear that Taylor Hawkins, drummer from Foo Fighters, has passed away. He was such a great musician and an even better person. Was a lot of fun playing with him. He always wanted to make the music better. Loved that. So sad. Rest in peace, Taylor. - RK.

Way too young to die. My condolences go out to his family and friends. What a great loss to the music world.๐Ÿ˜”๏ฟผ

I’m so sorry Robby, I know he was your friend and played together…. I can imagine it’s very hard shock. The rest of us are shocked yet he was your personal friend. So sad when people pass so young. Sending prayers to you and to his family and friends, all who love him…๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’•โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’•โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’•

Rip sending prayers to family and friends

Great pics.๐ŸŽถโค So sad๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ™ My Condolences to Family and friends๐Ÿ™

Sorry for our loss of a great drummer. The beats of life to cheer others.

Rest in peace Taylor ๐Ÿ™ thank you for all you great music

What a loss. I hope the sharp pain of loss is dulled by the bittersweet memory of his gifts to the world.

Rest in peace live for ever in rock and roll heaven

Lovely words. A sad loss to music ๐Ÿ˜ช

Yep, such a hard working and noble “young man” never actually crossed paths with Taylor but you didn’t have too to catch his giving/caring vibe. Could be wrong but to me he had a streak of empath in there somewhere, the guy just didn’t feel like a self destruct type of guy AT ALL. Dave obviously loved him.

This one hurts Robbie!!! He will Be missed. Rest easy Taylor๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™♥๏ธ♥๏ธโ˜ฎ๏ธโ˜ฎ๏ธ

A screenshot of the beginning of his last concert playing with the Foo Fighters. Rest in Peace Taylor.

Dang , what a bummer ! He was larger than life guy who was an amazing performer that left it all on the stage , sorry to all his family and friends , taylor we will miss you dearly !

I’m really sorry for you all as I heard the news last night. Robby Krieger I know this hits you hard and that it has been a tough year of losing some important friends. Thinking of you.

Condolences ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

Rest In Peace Taylor

He’s now playing with Jim & Ray… RIH

Sincere condolences to all. Truly devastated.

I just seen him 7months ago with the Foo Fighters tour good drummer RIPTaylor thanks for the memories .

Sad to lose people ๐Ÿ˜ž.

Thank you for this post. He touched us all… โœŒ๏ธโค๏ธ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿฅ

Very sad, taken far too early..an immense talent.

One of my favorite drummers, was fun to watch him perform. So sad.

My condolences PeaceR

May his soul rest in heaven
