Tuesday 8/18/2020 4pm ET: Feature Artist – Doobie Brothers

The Doobie Brothers are an American rock band from San Jose, California. The group has sold more than 40 million albums worldwide. They have been active for nearly five decades, with their greatest success in the 1970s. The group’s current lineup consists of founding members Tom Johnston (vocals, guitars) and Patrick Simmons (guitars, vocals), longtime member John McFee (guitars, fiddle, backing vocals), and touring musicians including Bill Payne (keyboards), John Cowan (bass, vocals), Marc Russo (saxophone), and Ed Toth (drums).

The band’s history can be roughly divided into three eras. From 1970 to 1975 it featured lead vocalist Johnston and a mainstream rock and roll sound with elements of folk, country and R&B. Johnston quit the group in 1975, and was replaced by Michael McDonald, whose interest in soul music changed the band’s sound until it broke up in 1982. The Doobie Brothers reformed in 1987 with Johnston back in the fold and are still active, with occasional contributions from McDonald. Every incarnation of the group has emphasized vocal harmonies. The Doobie Brothers were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2004.
