Even though the Grim Reaper seemed determined at times last year to take the lives of enough beloved musicians to fill an entire wing of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, there are still some certifiable legends who walk among us. Robby Krieger has done as much as anyone to shape the soundtrack of life in Los Angeles. Not only did the local guitarist compose much of The Doors’ original music, but he also wrote the lyrics to several of the group’s biggest hits, including “Light My Fire” and “Love Her Madly.” His spiraling, jazz-steeped solos, as heard on the embryonic, recently released live document The Doors: London Fog 1966, imbued The Doors’ bluesy rambles with an air of exoticism and psychedelic mystery. Tonight Krieger celebrates the 50th anniversary of the release of The Doors’ eponymous debut album. Also at the Whisky, Saturday, Jan. 14.
