The Doobie Brothers Biography

Aside from a few years of inactivity in the mid-eighties, The Doobie Brothers have continued to perform, create and record for over 21 consecutive years. ''The Doobies have always been about playing live,'' Johnston says. ''We’re not a studio hot house group and we’re not a concept album band. We’ve always just brought in the tunes we had, put them together and made an album. That’s the way it’s been from the very first album and that’s still the way it’s being done.''

Formed originally in 1970, the first Doobie Brothers line-up consisted of Tom Johnston on guitars/keyboards/harmonica/vocals; Patrick Simmons on guitars/banjo/flute/vocals; Dave Shogren on bass/guitar/backing vocals; and John Hartman on drums/percussion/backing vocals.

The band played live all over Northern California during that year. Their first album, The Doobie Brothers, was released in 1971, and album releases were to follow yearly until 1978, when Minute by Minute was released. This spent five weeks at the top of the music charts, dominating several radio formats for the better part of two years. The album won a Grammy Award for Pop Vocal Performance by a Group and was nominated for Album of the Year.
