Originally filmed by MURRAY LERNER during the band's performance at the third annual "ISLE OF WIGHT FESTIVAL," which was attended by over 600,000 fans, making it even bigger than Woodstock. Robby reflects on that gig, the new DVD/CD release, working with JIM MORRISON, while talking about some of the classic albums, and how the moved on after Morrison's death, along with some chatting about his solo albums and what Robby's up to today!

It'd been awhile since host Tom Lounges has previously interviewed Robby, so there was a lot of catching up to do. A few new tracks from the new Isle concert DVD, along with some classic Doors catalog recordings, and even a pair from Kreiger's solo releases are heard during the course of this show.   Lots of history and stories is heard as about Robby chats about his experience as a founding member and lifetime member of The Doors.
