East Side Dave

Weekdays 6am - 10am

Hola, Rat Rockers…East Side Dave here.   We were talking about The Doors on the Morning Rat Race…when I decided that I wanted to know how Robby Krieger, the band’s one and only guitarist, spells his first name.   Is it Robby with a “y” or “ie” at the end?

So, I looked it up on the ol’ Google machine.   And guess what?   They don’t know who the damned Doors guitarist is!   Take a look at the photographic evidence!

Now, before Ray Manzarek (The Doors’ keyboardist) was in a group with Krieger, Jim Morrison, and John Densmore…he did play music with his brother, Rick Manzarek, in a band called Rick & The Ravens.   And even though this was a prehistoric version of The Doors…by the time they officially became The Doors…only ROBBY KRIEGER was recognized as the group’s guitarist!

From the iconic opening to “The End”….to the action-packed riff of “Roadhouse Blues”…Robby Krieger is a guitar legend and the ONLY Doors’ guitarist and needs to be recognized as such, Google!

Yes, I’m talking directly to YOU, Google!   You’re spying on us anyway…so I know you can hear me!   FIX THIS!   ROBBY KRIEGER is The Doors’ guitarist!

This has been an unbalanced and slightly psychotic rant from East Side Dave.   Have a nice day.
