The Doors' legendary guitarist and Rock And Roll Hall of Famer Robby Krieger will give an exclusive interview and performance at the renowned Berklee College of Music in Boston on Monday, October 15 at 1:00 PM. Krieger will be interviewed by five student DJs from the BIRN (Berklee Internet Radio) for 90 minutes, take questions from the audience, and will then perform a 30 minute set with Morrison Crossing, a band comprised of Berklee students. The event is free and open to the public. Seating is first-come, first-serve. The interview and performance will also be available on the BIRN (www.thebirn.com ) following the event.
Robby Krieger is a founding member of The Doors and wrote many of the band’s classic songs, including "Light My Fire," "Love Me Two Times," "Touch Me" and "Love Her Madly." The Doors, who celebrate their 40th anniversary this year, recently released the 3-disc set The Doors: Live in Boston, capturing the band’s first stop on their final tour at the Boston Arena on April 10, 1970. The most comprehensive 2-disc collection of the band’s music, The Very Best Of The Doors, was also released last month. Both albums are available at physical and digital retail outlets as well as www.rhino.com and www.thedoors.com.
“This Doors newest release establishes a deep connection to the Boston music scene. We are honored that they’ve decided to fly Robby here just to do this exclusive interview with Berklee’s internet radio station. The Doors were always about innovation and experimentation and that defines so much of what Berklee and the BIRN are about,” says Stephen Croes, BIRN founder and dean of Berklee’s Music Technology Division.
The BIRN is Berklee’s first radio station in its 61-year history. Launched in May 2007, it features four 24-hour internet radio channels that educate and entertain, including more than 30 student-produced shows, a variety of recorded Berklee concerts and special events, and music from alumni. The BIRN is a credit-earning course and thriving student-operated organization. For more information on the BIRN, visit www.thebirn.com.
