Robby Krieger Plays The Doors with Gov’t Mule

Robby Krieger joined Gov’t Mule for the entirety of their second set during the first night of the band’s Halloween run at The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles. The Doors guitarist sat in with the Mule for their debut renditions of a number of Doors classics, including “Break On Through (To The Other Side),” “Love Me Two Times,” “People Are Strange,” “Light My Fire,” “The End,” “Riders On The Storm” and “L.A. Woman.” The set wrapped up with an encore take on “When The Music’s Over.”

In addition to Krieger, Mule also got some help from a few other musicians. Andy Fraser & Tobi sat in with the group for “Mr. Big” during the first set, while Robby’s son Waylon Krieger joined them for The Doors “Five to One.” Bassist Phil Chin, who played with Ray Manzarek and Robby Krieger, also made an appearance on “Roadhouse Blues.”

As previously reported, Krieger will be joining Gov’t Mule again tonight for the final show of their Halloween run at The Fox Theater in Oakland.

Mule did it again. Wow, I wish I could make tonight’s Halloween show. Should be a blast!

Warren successfully morphed the Lizard Kings vocal doppelganger.
Good music, good times and an extraordinarily abysmal sound system. Kinda like flying a 747 with one wing or driving a Ferrari with studded snow tires, yes, it was that bad! Fortunately the caliber of act overshadowed the glowing defeciency.
Also, one night only in LA, tonights gig is in Oakland.

That’s ur comment to this show u idiot? Who cares if they’ve played Light my Fire in the past? Let’s celebrate the shear awesomeness of the second set n the show.

CCN, we obviously weren’t at the same show. Besides Robbie’s microphone being turned low, the sound was pretty awesome @ the Fonda last nite. The band killed it, and Warren certainly morphed into the Lizard King and did not disappoint… That was a special nite of music!!!!

It was amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It was hands down their best Halloween show to date, including Haunted Houses of the Holy, which I never thought they’d top. Epic.
