A CONVERSATION WITH ... ROBBY KRIEGER
(Originally aired on July 22, 2010)
Robby Krieger, the iconic guitarist for the Doors, tells us about recording "War Toad," a tune on his 2000 solo album, Cinematix. Based on the Doors' song "Peace Frog" (originally released on the 1970 album, Morrison Hotel), "War Toad," was remixed from original Doors tapes and contains previously unheard rantings from Jim Morrison. Krieger offers several startling revelations about the Door's legendary lead singer, as well as the fate of the multitrack masters from the Doors' first two albums. Following Krieger's comments, we'll hear "War Toad," which contains elements of both contemporary dance-club music and the Doors' trippy sounds.
