the-doors-morrison-hotel-cover-art-8586Robert Alan “Robby” Krieger,born January 8, 1946 is an American rock guitarist and songwriter. He was the guitarist in The Doors, and wrote some of the band’s best known songs, including “Light My Fire”, “Love Me Two Times”, “Touch Me”, and “Love Her Madly”.
He is listed as number 91 on Rolling Stone’s list of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time.
Robby Krieger was born in Los Angeles, California, to a Jewish family.His first exposure to music was mostly classical, as his father was a big fan of marching music, until he heard Peter and the Wolf, which was the first music that really caught him. When he was seven, Krieger accidentally broke his record player, but the radio began to reach his ears playing the likes of Fats Domino, Elvis Presley, and the Platters. At 10, he tried the trumpet, but found it was not for him. He began playing the blues on his parents’ piano with much more success than the trumpet. While Krieger was attending a private school, there was study time at night that allowed him to teach himself to play the guitar. He began by learning flamenco, borrowing a friend’s guitar. When Krieger was 18, he got his own flamenco guitar and took lessons for a few months. He bounced around genres, including flamenco, folk, blues, and jazz. After high school, Krieger attended the University of California, Santa Barbara.Krieger listed guitarists Wes Montgomery, Albert King, and Larry Carlton among the biggest influences of his style.
