On Monday, October 18 at 7 p.m. the Hudson Library & Historical Society will host a live virtual streaming event with legendary Doors guitarist Rob Kreiger author of?Set the Night on Fire: Living, Dying, and Playing Guitar with the Doors. Set the Night on Fire is packed with never-before-told stories from The Doors’ most vital years and offers a fresh perspective on the most infamous moments of the band’s career.
Few bands are as shrouded in the murky haze of rock mythology as The Doors, and parsing fact from fiction has been a virtually impossible task. But now, after fifty years, The Doors’ notoriously quiet guitarist is finally breaking his silence to set the record straight. Through a series of vignettes, Krieger takes readers back to where it all happened. Set the Night on Fire is an insightful time capsule of the ‘60s counterculture, a moving reflection on what it means to find oneself as a musician, and a touching tale of a life lived non-traditionally.
Krieger is the guitarist for the legendary rock band The Doors and the songwriter behind some of the band’s biggest hits, including “Love Me Two Times,” “Touch Me,” “Love Her Madly,” and their #1 smash, “Light My Fire.” The Doors have sold over a hundred million albums worldwide, inspired a major feature film, been awarded a Lifetime Achievement Grammy®, and been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Krieger, meanwhile, has also become a Grammy®-nominated solo artist, and was listed among the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” by Rolling Stone.
