Robbie Krieger

Robbie Krieger is a rock and roll guitarist from Los Angeles, California. He was the guitarist in The Doors, and occasionally wrote songs for that band, such as "Light My Fire" and "Runnin' Blue". He took over as lead singer when the band briefly continued on after the death of Jim Morrison, without success. Krieger later played guitar on a few tracks by Blue Oyster Cult and reformed the Doors in 2002 with keyboardist Ray Manzarek from the original band as well as Ian Astbury and Stewart Copeland.

Krieger also enjoyed some success as a jazz guitarist after his initial tenure with the Doors, recording a handful of albums in the 1970's and 80's, including Versions (1983) and No Habla (1986).

After The Doors broke up in 1973, Krieger formed his own band, The Robbie Krieger Band. The band was disbanded after a short time. Krieger now serves with the revamped Doors.
