The Doors' Robby Krieger on playing with the Roadhouse Rebels and his new album

When the Roadhouse Rebels come to the Oriental Theater this Sunday night, the act, which features Robby Krieger of the Doors and Particle keyboardist Steve Molitz, they'll be joined by an all-star cast of players, including Oingo Boingo/Mutaytor bassist John Avila, the Black Crowes' Rich Robinson and drummer Joe Magistro. The group will play fresh takes on Doors songs and cuts from Robinson's Through a Crooked Sun, as well as classic soul and rock tunes from the '60s and '70s. We spoke with Krieger about the new jazz album he's working on with two alumni of Frank Zappa's band, playing flamenco guitar, golfing and his time with the Doors.
