We’re wrapping up the final week in a three-week celebration of Off The Road, marking a second anniversary of the series this month! To celebrate, three remarkable guitarists join us.

HPR All Things Considered Host Dave Lawrence welcomed back guitar monster Joe Satriani for his second appearance on Off The Road, and then a guy making his third visit on Off The Road, John McLaughlin. Today, it’s the conclusion of a debut, and an artist who will offer an exclusive musical performance: The Doors' Robby Krieger! He joined us from his house in Southern California, and his appearance follows our Off The Road interview with Doors drummer John Densmore last year.

Today we conclude two days of storytelling from his recent book, Set The Night On Fire. In part one, we learned about his first-ever audition to join The Doors, his parents’ initial meetings with the late legendary Doors singer Jim Morrison, the time Jim stayed at his parents’ house for three weeks with Robby and his Grandpa Fred, the historic New Haven incident, and the many covers of their hit "Light My Fire," along with Jim’s reaction to one of the versions he really liked!
