Do you know how much you mean to me?
Robby, I know this might sound trite as you get this a lot, but, you mean the world to me. I connect with you and your music on a whole other plane. The Doors music is the soundtrack to my life. I thank you each and everyday man. I don’t know where I’d be without you. Here is how I discovered The Doors:
I was on my dads iPod when I was about ten years old. We were in the car on a long road trip. I used to scroll through his music where I got turned into people like Pink Floyd, Strawberry Alarm Clock, Iron Butterfly, Neil Diamond, and Abba, among so many others. One day I saw this strange album named “An American Prayer”. I listened to the whole thing and I fell in love. I was so mesmerized — I never heard anything quite like it before. I felt at home. It felt right. Your sounds, your rhythms, your lyrics all feel like the pulse of my own being. I could feel what was coming next even though I never heard your songs before that day. And then right after that album, I listened to “Other Voices” and “Full Circle”. I loved those albums too! Since it was my first time listening to you guys, I had no idea it wasn’t Jim singing on those two albums, haha! But then after that I went through your entire catalogs from the beginning, and man, what a wild and beautiful ride it is.
Thank you so much for everything.

What was it like playing to a small crowd at the London Fog and then being catapulted into true stardom, where millions of people knew your name? In other words, what’s it like becoming famous?

What’s it like to wake up and realize you’re Robby Krieger?
