THE DOORS' ROBBY KRIEGER Added To ULI JON ROTH's Sky Academy Concerts

Robby Krieger, legendary guitarist and songwriter for THE DOORS, will appear on one of this year's SKY ACADEMY concert as a guest of honor to play with ULI JON ROTH & FRIENDS. According to a posting on Roth's web site, "Last year's inspiring jam session with Robby and Uli at the UCLA featured extensive renditions of no less than three DOORS classics: 'L.A. Woman', 'Roadhouse Blues', 'Riders On The Storm'."

Set to take place August 22-26 at Musician's Institute in Los Angeles, the concept of Sky Academy was conceived by Uli. He wanted a medium to teach his own unique approach to musicians wanting to take their playing to that next level.

Uli will perform two concerts, titled "Uli Jon Roth and Friends", in conjunction with his Sky Academy Seminar (note: tickets can be purchased separately for the concerts). Uli will play lots of SCORPIONS and playing tribute to many classic bands, such as CREAM, JIMI HENDRIX, THE DOORS, and others.

Guests confirmed to jam with Uli this year are as follows:

Adrian Galysh
Andrew Shulman (cello)
Chris Poland (ex-MEGADETH)
Don Dokken
George Bellas
Jeff Scott Soto (ex-JOURNEY, TALISMAN)
Joe Stump (REIGN OF TERROR)

Steve Smyth (NEVERMORE, ex-TESTAMENT)

Last year the seminars and concerts were held at UCLA. Uli played about four hours a night, paying tribute to THE DOORS with Robbie Krieger, CREAM, HENDRIX, GEORGE GERSHWIN, VIVALDI as well as playing many SCORPIONS and ULI JON ROTH classics.
