The Doors[change | change source]

Robby was born in Los Angeles, California.

His career began in 1965 as a member of The Doors. They would become popular with their songs "Light My Fire", "Break On Through (To The Other Side)", and "Riders on the Storm".

The bands leader, Jim Morrison, died on the 4th of July 1971 in Paris, France from a heart attack that was led on by many years of Drug and Alcohol abuse. Although Morrison died, the Doors continued, releasing one more album before spliting up.

Morrison was inducted, as a member of The Doors, into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993.

There is a 1991 movie about the Doors, also called The Doors. It was directed by Oliver Stone and had Frank Whaley portray Krieger.
