The Doobie Brothers is a rock band from San Jose, California, formed in 1969. Active for almost fifty years, it has sold more than forty million albums worldwide, the greatest hits having been published during the 1970s.
The band's story can be divided into three eras, first from its creation in 1969 to 1975 with singer-guitarist Tom Johnston bringing with it a rock 'n' roll sound, while including folk, country elements and R & B. He left the band in 1975, replaced by Michael McDonald as backing vocals for Steely Dan, who changed the sound of the Doobie Brothers with his interest in soul music until their first separation in 1982. They reformed in 1987 with the return of Tom Johnston in training, as well as Michael McDonald's temporary appearances and are still active until now. Their biggest hits include Black Water, Listen to the Music, Long Train Runnin, China Grove and Jesus is just allright for the first period, and with McDonald's arrival in the band, we find songs with a more soulful tone. such as It Keeps You Runnin ', You belong to me, Taking it to the Streets and Minute by minute and then the reformation in 1987, the successes were a little rarer but we still find pieces such as Need a Little Taste of Love, Dangerous, Ordinary Man, Nobody and finally World Gone Crazy.
