(April 7 @ 7 p.m., 245 E. Green St., Pasadena) The Doors guitarist Robby Krieger is a rock ‘n roll legend. His love for music started as a child, when he listened to his favorite record (Peter And The Wolf) until it broke. His musical tastes matured, and by the time he was a teenager he began seriously playing the guitar – Mexican Flamenco style. But his love for the blues and jazz eventually led him to rock ‘n roll, and subsequently to a place in history. Tickets available at roseconcerts.com.  ­- PASADENA
