Robby Krieger

Robby Krieger is still a little bitter about Oliver Stone's 1991 biopic on his band, the Doors. But the guitarist was more than enthusiastic about "When You’re Strange," the 2009 documentary about the Los Angeles group, which was awarded top long-form music video at the Grammy Awards on Sunday afternoon during the pre-telecast show. "I think [the film] lends some realism to how people view Jim," Krieger said, who was also nominated for his solo disc "Singularity." "There have been Oliver Stone movies, and books that really give the wrong idea of Jim. This film really gives a look at who he is."
