Robby Krieger's Jam Kitchen (Doors founder /guitarist)
Aug 22, 2013
Fans of the Doors and Frank Zappa, this is your night. Doors founder and guitarist Robby Krieger comes to Infinity Hall with members of Frank Zappa’s band ( Arthur Barrow / Larry Klimas ). The group will be performing Doors and Zappa hits along with some new material fashioned specifically for this tour.
Robby Krieger was convinced by a Chuck Berry concert to give rock music a go, which resulted in the guitarist trading in his classical guitar in for a Gibson SG, an instrument that he would eventually become his signature instrument. Studying physics and Indian music at UCLA, Krieger played in bands with friends, and eventually bumped into a drummer he’d met a few years before, John Densmore. The two began jamming on blues together, while Krieger’s interest in Indian music and culture continued to flourish, as he began dabbling with sitars (studying at the Kinnara School, which was founded by Ravi Shankar), and attending meditation classes. It was at one of these meditation classes that Krieger met keyboardist Ray Manzarek. Manzarek eventually convinced Krieger to come down and rehearse with a poet/singer he’d been working with, Jim Morrison. Their first rehearsal supposedly resulted in the playing of “Moonlight Drive,” resulting in the birth of the Doors.
