Doobie Brothers Rockin’ Down the Highway History Tour – Stop #4
Blackwater River. Virginia.

Do you remember? 43 years ago today, March 15, 1975, “Black Water” reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. The southern-flavored ode had been released the previous fall as the B-side to “Another Park, Another Sunday,” but Chuck Holloway, a disc jockey/music director at WROV-AM in Roanoke, Virginia was inspired to flip the single and play the B-side partly in honor of a local tributary called… the Blackwater River. Listeners lit up the request lines instantly and soon, nearby WQRK-FM in Hampton Roads picked up the tune. From there, there was no stopping it. “Black Water” became the Doobies first ever #1 hit, thanks in part to WROV-AM music director Chuck Holloway, who first spun the record on the air.

Pat Simmons described for me how he became inspired one day off in New Orleans while the band was on tour. “I always carried a little pad with me to capture song ideas. I was on a streetcar, trying to find a place to do my laundry, which is what you often do on a day off on the road. It was one of those classic New Orleans days where it pours rain and then almost instantly the sun beats down and just creates that magical mood.” So he jotted down the words, “Well if it rains, I don't care/ Don't make no difference to me/ Just take that street car that's goin' uptown.”

Simmons didn’t know about the Blackwater River back then. Instead he was inspired by evocative, literary images of Mark Twain and Huck Finn, floating lazily down a river, nothing but time to spend in the summer sun. But it’s a real place, and it’s forever connected to one of the most important songs in Doobie Brothers history. #KeepOnRollin’

Doobie Brothers Rockin’ Down the Highway History Tour – Stop #3
Newhall Pass, where Interstates 5 and 14 meet
Los Angeles County, CA

45 years ago TODAY saw the release of the album that led many to fall in love with the Doobie Brothers: 1973’s The Captain and Me. Do you remember? This is the LP that delivered such soon-to-standards as “Long Train Runnin’,” “China Grove,” “South City Midnight Lady”. and “Without You.” And talk about a classic album cover. I asked Pat Simmons and Tom Johnston to break it down.

Pat explained, “Our producer, Ted Templeman’s assistant Benita Brassiere put the shoot together. Our drummer, John Hartman, was the the one who got the idea going. We all sat around brainstorming, and as the concept began to take shape, we all started throwing in ideas, coach, horses, top hats, vampires, gothic, banquet table, creepy stuff. It was a complete surprise to me when I got there. All the costumes, props, coach, and horses, and a couple of wranglers to handle the animals, and harness them to the coach, came from the Warner Brothers movie studios in Burbank. Somebody from the record label pulled some strings, and helped us to make it happen. Arguably our most interesting album cover."

Tom told me, “The Sylmar earthquake of ’71 is what caused the freeway to collapse. It was definitely a wild place to do the shoot. Warner Bros Studio lot was where the costumes, the carriage/stagecoach and horses, and the large table everyone is sitting around in the centerfold of the album came from. We had a lot of fun doing this shoot and not a few peeks over the end of the freeway overpass. Oddly enough this overpass was repaired only to collapse again in pretty much the same place in the Northridge quake in 1994.”

Every day, thousands of motorists pass this location in and out of Los Angeles. But how many of them know they are passing under a classic rock and roll landmark?

I fell in love in Oct. of 1972 when I woke up early one morning turned on the radio heard listen to the music and knew I had to see this band who’s music blew me away. And it was thanksgiving week that I saw them and met them in Detroit (Masonic Temple) with a turkey in the dressing room. A 100+ concerts later I am still Listening To The great Music of the Doobie Brothers 🤩

On this day in 1980, The Doobie Brothers took home four Grammy Awards including Record of the Year for "What a Fool Believes" and Best Pop Vocal Performance by a Group for “Minute By Minute!" Can you spot the artist who co-wrote "What a Fool Believes"?? :) #OnThisDay #doobiebrothers #22ndgrammyawards #whatafoolbelieves #minutebyminute #1980 #grammys

Since I came up with the original lineup and sound I never looked at it like Michael was a Doobie. Professional musicians do a lot of sitting in and it does stimulate different flavors of creativity, eras if you like. And we get that some don't care for the collaborations, which is what it always was. It was and still is The Doobie Brothers with Michael featured. Their ongoing independent identities have never been in question.

All the variations of the Doobies, and all the hits, yet STILL not in the Rock n Roll Hall of fame? I call bs! This entire Band of Brothers deserve to be recognized!!! We've lost many of them..Cornelius, Keith Knudsen, Michael Hossack to name a few.. They have kept on rocking for me since the beginning.. Love seeing then perform live! They deserve it!

I truly wish that the Doobies would separate the McD era to another page so all the people that like McD can go to that page. Just think, a rock page and a sappy jazz pop page, lol The Who said it best" Long Live Rock". Umm, that leaves Mcd out of the mix.

Yes we do. :) #ThrowbackThursday #TBT #1971 #debutalbum #thedoobiebrothers #doobiebrothers #tomjohnston #patricksimmons #daveshogren #johnhartman

" Neal's Fandango" " Tell Me What You Want ( and I'll give you what you need)" and " South City Midnight Lady" are songs that Pat sang perfect lead on that should and would have been Billboard top ten hits if it were not for the average marketing the band had back in its early beginnings, mostly relying on the radio disc jockeys to promote the songs.

Listening to these three songs proves clearly that it wasn't just Tommy who wrote all the best songs. Many of the B-side songs are as good as the hits.

" This train I'm on " from the Brotherhood album, with Pat singing lead is a song they should bring back into the concert tour. Great lead vocal by Pat, amazing harmony, excellent guitar licks, and Billy Payne on the piano The Perfect Storm!

Pat has an amazing voice also blessed with superb songwriting skills. And let's not forget that Pat had the only number one chart hit " Black Water" way before Michael McDonald arrived.

Inside the Doobie Brothers closest fans circle, those who know the whole truth of the matter, we've known for 50 years that Pat Smmons is the greatest hidden treasure in the music industry.

Please play in concert ' THIS TRAIN I'M ON" from the Brotherhood album. Pat's vocals are outstanding and so is the classic Doobie Brother's harmony, and you can feature Billy Payne on keyboards on this great uplifting concert song!

When I heard "Old Juarez" on the last "new" CD, I thought this really sounded like classic Tom stuff, but it seems it's never worked its way into the set. Missing an obvious choice, I think...

Doobie Brothers Rockin’ Down the Highway History Tour – Stop #2

Tour stop #2 takes us back to the classic album, What Were Once Vices Are Now Habits, released on this day in 1974!

Western Kentucky University
Bowling Green, Kentucky

This was the heyday of classic vinyl and who can forget the packaging of this classic album? The totally 1970s lettering, the cool poster that came inside and of course, the iconic photo on the cover, looking down on the band, shrouded in dry ice fog with the crowd going nuts. (The original cover image was to have been a large painting that hung in the San Jose State student-union building entitled “What Were One Vices Are Now Habits” but when shrunk down to album-cover size, too much was lost visually).

The concert cover image that was used was taken on the night of December 4, 1973 during the last week of the fall/winter US tour at Western Kentucky University’s E.A. Diddle Arena at (named after the legendary WKU basketball coach).

I asked Pat and Tom for the inside story on the cover shot. Pat shared, “The picture was taken by Danny Fong, who was on the road with us, shooting video, pictures, and helping with after show meals. Danny was a great chef, on top of all his other talents!He climbed up on the scaffolding that held the lights, over the stage, and took the shot at the climax of our show, where we used explosions, dry ice, and other effects. Probably the most intense, loudest moment of the night. I think he climbed up there before the audience even got into the room and stayed up there through our whole set until the end, just to get the shot. He was intrepid!”

Tom told me, “That album is a good snap shot Danny Fong took from the rafters or cat walk overhead. It shows the dry ice fog and the kind of crowds we were seeing every night. Things were ramping up for us success-wise with the popularity of The Captain and Me, and we were touring constantly. That time period was when we had started using dry ice ‘smoke’ onstage and it was pretty thick when used, usually towards the end of the show. And enhanced by explosions (1/4 stick of dynamite per side, so pretty LOUD) for the start of “China Grove” and sometimes the end as well. We may have used it on another song as well, but that’s the one I remember. Traveling in the Doobie-liner plane and always on the road, this shot really captures that era.”

Does this image take you back or what? What are YOUR memories of this classic Doobies album? (and who also had the 8-track? ;)

this is definitely one of the few albums i owned and the poster was on my wall the first captain and me and toulouse were cassettes the later albums were eight tracks. i believe just can't stop it is the first song on the b side and until the days of spotify had never heard the proper intro caused from day one my album had a skip on the intro. big doobies brothers fan saw them so many times lives. my favorite was at carowinds paladium in charlotte nc outdoors when they were suppose to opened by two other bands who were brothers and they got on the wrong flight and landed a state away so the doobies brothers came on and rocked the house all night. patrick never left the stage for over 3 and half hours. i remember a big motor cycle looking biker guy sitting up in front of the stage and they open the concert with china grove soon as the first down beat he fell over and news the next day as they took him off in a stretcher that his ear drums were blown out from the down beat. i am sure the wasn't the same ever. It was one of those stand on the top of your seat all night long. I am a guitar player now and one day I was listening to this album I realized that the tone I use even today it pattern after some of the sweet tones of this rocking guitar band brothers album. Stampede was quite a transition and then the michael world happened with the loss of Tom. I used to be the biggest fan of Skunk in my young days but the more I find out he was one of the ones that did not really take the time to play authentic doobie brothers music he was throwing the steelydan improv over these classics songsl

This album was the topping on the cake following The Captain and Me. Most importantly, every song on this album (and most other Doobie albums) is a classic in its own way. How can you not love "Song to See You Through" enhanced thoroughy by the Memphis Horns? Another deep track that blows me away is "Daughter's of the Sea". Pat was in his early 20s when he wrote that. How many modern day artists in their mid-20s can put out gems like that? The speed changes and interplay between Pat and Tommy with excellent percussion, is just a sugary medley of brilliance that to this day, leaves me in awe. "Down in the Track" is a song they pulled out recently on tour and what a track it is. It speaks of those hardscrabble days and Tommy is a tour de force on vocals and guitars. But the apotheosis of this album is of course "Road Angel," a paean to the days of motorcycles and the road--where there was just a journey and no destination and where life was more simple, and down to earth, without the modern day distractions most are all consumed with now. With Road Angel and some of Tommy's other tracks on the album, you see the dichotomy between Tommy's artistry and his ease of going from beautiful ballads like Another Park, to hard driving rock and roll like Down in the Track. Few artists can do that and with Pat as the second, equal pillar, you had an assemblage of talent and diversity without peer.

Yes. Brutal. My two all-time favorite bands as well. I damn near remortgaged the house to get semi-close in NH July 13. I miss the old days: Doobies headlined. Full set. After show passes (with my kids!!). No mortgages. The BR Cohn days. The DB Fan Club remains and has towed the line for 2+ decades. A tight group of loyal listeners that helped the band get to and stay in front of fans worldwide in advance of a second renaissance. I realize that time$$ have changed. But I also believe that a band can -if it wishes - customize its relationship with its deepest base. The base doesn’t need much - just a handshake and a high five. Lest they forget... Keep rockin!!

On a fateful night in 1969, Tom Johnston, then a budding musician (and graphic design student at nearby San Jose State) saw another local player, Pat Simmons (playing with his then-musical partner, banjo player Peter Grant) at this former theater. Originally, Simmons & Grant were to have been opening for Hot Tuna who had to cancel at the last minute – replaced by the legendary Skip Spence of Moby Grape, whose group featured Johnston and drummer John Hartman.

As Tom recalls from that night, “I remember watching Pat and Peter Grant play and being pretty wowed by their skill. I didn’t get around what has become “Americana" much back then, and both Pat and Peter were very accomplished players. Plus, Pat was a very good singer and had a lot of experience playing the local clubs like the Wine Cellar in Los Gatos and others in the San Jose/Los Gatos area. Finger-picking is an art form I have always admired but never got the hang of, and Pat is extremely good at it. This led to our getting together and heading in a quasi-Moby Grape direction.”

Johnston, Simmons and Hartman hung out after the show and then wound up back at Johnston’s house in San Jose where they jammed into the night – the first of many nights that would be spent that way. Today, the building is still there, but it’s no longer a theater, it’s a bank. 400 E. Campbell Avenue is a special site for Doobie Brothers fans. It's where a couple of musical brothers-to-be first made a serious connection; in many ways it’s like a birthplace of the band.

Little Caesar's Arena in Detriot. When you played on the riverfront a couple of years ago you had it packed. You even had people up in the RenCen looking down and about 50 boats in the water watching you guys on that beautiful Summer night in downtown Detroit.

What the people need, is a way to make 'em smile!

Are you guys comin' down around the corner back to Denver with the new album 2018? You have always been my favorite band since like forever..
