Love this band I did when they first started and I started hearing it back on the farm and Southwest Texas and I still do and I'm stuck in Fresno now they are awesome. And they actually care about their fans and music and Families which is a nice nice thing.

Doobies are my favorite. Old and new. Stampede and Once Were Vices are Now Habits are my favorites. Don't crap on Michael McDonald. He saved the band from breaking up. Give him his due. Taken it to the Streets and Minute by Minute were great albums. Not typical Doobies but it took them to a different level. Old and new Doobies are great period. I've been a fan since 1974.
Can Jeff Baxter pick on a tune or two on the new record? He kicked ass on "Stampede" and other great Doobie great LP's. I love Tommy Pat, and John .... but does anybody else want to see the Skunk back for some playing time?

Off topic, anyone notice during the "big interview" with dan rather, rather said although the doobies are from California they're known as a "southern rock band" im 58 and maybe it's because I've known them from the beginning, but I never thought of them as a southern rock band, anyone ever think of them that way?
Great show! Sound was good! Love that Bill Payne of Little Feat fame on keys was playing with you guys.John Cowen is playing and singing well also! Didn't catch the sax players name but he rocked too. Do miss the two drummer attack though! One of three bands back then, Grateful Dead, Allman Bros also! Tom, your playing and singing is still spot on! When you guys played Road Angel, you really tore it up! Love the sound of Tom's PRS guitars!
When are you bringing in a second drummer to help out Ed and return to the Doobie double drummer signature? Thanks in advance for any insight. See you in NH. Bringing a large contingent as usual. Keep rockin.

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!!
I dislike how difficult it has become to get decent seats at Presale and at promptly 10 am..our 2 favorite bands playing together!! We are going to wait it out for great seats!..the meet and Greets are too expensive right now ☹️
I hate Riverbend and Blossom in Cleveland is just too much of a drive. Wish you'd do Veterans Memorial Civic Center in Lima, OH sometime or Ft. Wayne, IN.

I love these historical stories of my favorite band. So looking forward to hearing more from Chris Epting about The Doobie Brothers and their musical history. 😎❤️
Awesome! I hope in the near future the band will write a tell-all book about their experiences and funny stories on the road over the years, including the story surrounding the Hells Angels connection during the Chateau Regis years ..
Love this story. Started listening to them when I was very young living in San Jose. Loved that they were from the town I lived in !! So cool !! Rock on Doobie Brothers !!! 🎸🎶
The whole process of mental adjustment and atonement can be summed up in one word, gratitude… if your gratitude is strong and constant, the reaction in Formless Substance will be strong and continuous; the movement of the things you want will be always toward you.
On vinyl! When released and our kids said 'Dad !~ you haven't played that CD for a while...' Not a CD Kiddos... the real stuff :)

Merry Christmas the new year = new album (vinyl geek)? Maybe a deep cuts greatest hits? Deepest hits? Flying Cloud would be on it, right?

Southwest Florida....please. we had tickets for your show in Anderson Indiana at the casino a few years back and had to miss the show. We have since moved to Port Charlotte Florida and we really want to see you.
Would enjoy it if you came back to Minnesota and Got a venue closer in the Metro area, would be great if you could play a little longer set then when I saw you Treasure Island Casino. You have been a part of my life since Toulouse Street Came out. Devoted Fan here. Would love a couple more songs added Namely Music Man & You just Can't Stop it. Best wishes ALL
I've already got front row seats to see y'all in Tyler Texas next month. Can't wait. Will there be a meet and greet or photo opportunity?
You guys belong in the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame, when I seen some of the names being inducted this coming year, I realized what a joke it is that you guys are not in there! Keep on rockin guys!

I was there Huey Lewis first started the concert that was the first time I heard of them have been to 28 doobies concerts total
I loved those Mountain Aire concerts. I don’t remember the year but it’s the only time I’ve seen the Doobies. It was years after this show. Probably mid 80’s.Michael McDonald reunited with them for that show. Huey Lewis and the News, backed by the Tower of Power horns played a full set before them. Tremendous show. One of my favorites.

It is a disgrace that you are not in the hall of fame YET! It makes it hard for me to take it all seriously when I see some of the musicians on the ballots.
This is hard..great album...What a Fool Believes...Here to Love You..Minute by Minute..depends on the mood..still often played in my household..can't be that long ago it was released :P :)
Classic Album put the Doobies into another era some people like it some don't but I am still there after all these years, I live in the UK and seen them a few weeks ago and still have never lost the magic keep on playing guys you must be doing something right to be still for this long

Hey Tommy, Pat John & the Brotherhood I went to POCO a week ago here in Denver. Rusty Young had Richie Furay come on stage and perform.

You have always been my favorite band since like forever..BryanShannon Goble Debi Wallace Randy Goble
My favorite rock band as well. Seen them 12 times in Australia & New Zealand. We don't get them down this way as much so enjoy it when they do make the long trek.

A great show in London last night and also in York on Wednesday. Don’t leave it so long before coming back to the UK. 🎸🎸🎸🎸
Was at O2 last night and you guys rocked it. Dublin’s a better venue for having a standing pit - have a blast and please rock down our highway again soon 🎶🎶👍👍

I had a great time walking around the streets of Dublin yesterday, admiring all of the amazing performers. This guy was outstanding!!! -TJ

I love you guys! Saw y'all in Johnson City at Freedom Hall in the early 70's. Twice! Love the music. Continue on rockin'!
You're in one of my favorite cities! Where's the Guinness or Harp on that table!! lol Enjoy your visit and have a great concert!
We were born in the era of the infant genre of R&R-how far we've come-how far will we go? So long Fats...
Did you see the spot where Constantine was crowned Roman Emperor? It's right around back of York Minster. Also, Guy Fawke's birthplace is verrrry close to there.
Your fans in Europe are so excited to see The Doobie Brothers. The venues will be rockin and rollin...so exciting!! Have a great tour, and most of all, have fun and enjoy!! 😎
Travel light, I do. Hey T.J. remember I told you to sign Laura’s Tee shirt on the front because it would be more fun! Palm Beach Auditorium, a while back. Saw you at Coral Sky And Broward Center last year.
Happy Birthday to my best friend, you are an amazing husband, father and now Grandpa! We love you so much and are so grateful to have such a wonderful person in our lives. 🌈❤️💜😘
One of the best and most under-rated players, singers, and writers in the history of rock....Happy Birthday, Pat! Keep it up!!!!!
Happy birthday to Pat one of the most underrated guitar players ever. You don't need the corrupt politics of the R&RHOF to confirm the fact that you are all talented musicians and have recorded and performed all around the world in packed venues playing some of the most amazing and versatile music for almost 50 years.The whole problem with the R&RHOF is that you are not their puppets and you don't push their Leftist Luciferin ideology that has done nothing but implement what God calls sin, failed godless socialism, which is really communism, with an anti-American sediment that has decayed society, destroyed the work ethic and created an entitlement and a victim mentality. What proves my point is a number of artists are included that shouldn't be in the R&RHOF and a number that have been inducted before you guys and many other outstanding artists and groups who are also deserving are still not in. Hell, who needs the R&RHOF, you are way above that tarnished idea. Remember the words of Ozzie and what he stated about the R&RHOF. I'm a Christian Conservative and I know you live in Hawaii and most everyone on that island are Democrats, but we can respect one another as your motives were never about pushing a political agenda, but something more important, making great music that made people feel good and joyous, a feeling that has crated a desire for those people to want to give your music and love to others. That has been accomplished, the rest is just dessert. Bottom line, you have millions upon millions of faithful fans who have supported this amazing band since 1971. We love you, we thank you, we won't let you retire lol, and we will always listen to the music of the best band ever! I can see Tommy rolling his eyes, but I have a name for your new album "Just Desserts" lol. One more thing, please consider asking the great artist David Uhl to paint the 2018 album cover. May the good Lord bless and keep you.-Larry G Golden, Colorado #RedRocksColorado
Watch us NOW on AXS TV (9/8c)! Don't miss 'The Big Interview' with the legendary Dan Rather! http://www.axs.tv/programs/the-big-interview/
Safe travels, you guys ~ anytime you're tempted to re-visit the casinos of southern Indiana/northern Kentucky, you know I'll do my best to be there !! B|
The UK is great and everything but isn't your favorite venue RED ROCKS, COLORADO? Please be safe and look up Paul Carrack he's been on tour all over the UK. You guys should bring him back from across the pond for your 2018 tour.
You guys are definitely the best of the best, just retired 40 years dentistry, on my bucket list to set in with you guys. Been playing for 42 years, contact me will be glad to make you sound better 😃
Im only 28 but always got the family hand me downs and i had that same 8 track when i was 8. Was one of my first 5 tapes. Also had vinyl records cause doobies one of the best rock bands ever. Grew up on it. Was put to bed lisening to it. Dad was a hippie mom was a redneck. Best of both worlds. Lol keep rockin down the highway #doobiebrothers
vice / habits was the only Doobie Brothers album I purchased on 8-track. After that I decided I didn't want to subject any Doobies' tune to the inevitable fade out / jump track / fade in.
My first a 4 track then a 8 track at home a roll to roll still have it to a cassette and now C Ds
Rather makes my teeth itch usually but he has done a good job with this interview series. Ann and Nancy Wilson, Charlie Daniels, and Pat Benatar especially.
So looking forward to seeing you guys again in 2018! Your recent show at Harrah's Event Center at Cherokee, NC was absolutely incredible! Closing in on seeing a total of 50 shows in the next year or two! Keep spreading the message of brotherhood through your fantastic music!!! Rock it out Doobies!!!
Thank you for playing so hard all summer! On behalf of fans all across the country, THANK YOU! I know you made my summer with your Cherokee NC concert....rest up! You deserve it! THANK YOU!
Saw you twice this year. Thanks for bringing the music. Get some rest and family time, stay safe, enjoy the upcoming holiday season, and we'll see you again next year.
As Pat Simmons has always said, "The Music 🎶 is Great, but The (Cause)Reason That We're Here Tonight for Is Important"!!! So Let's Party Dudes!!!!! Marc 😎

Tom Petty’s departure from this world came much too soon.His music has resonated through generations. Our condolences go out to his family, friends, fans, and bandmates.Rest in Peace, Tom. Thank you for Runnin’ down your dream.
And the crowd is growing bigger... Listenin' for the happy sounds And I got to let them fly! Thank you for Listening to the Music, Seattle! It was so great being part of #TheClassicNW and sharing the stage with our good friends, the Eagles!
I don't comment much on FB But I would like thank ALL of you for bringing so much joy in to my life over the last 47 or so years. Not to mention the parties you made special. That is a nice way of saying we partied down with the Maranrz amps, Dual tables, and very large Bose speakers. All that fits in my pocket these days. I really appreciate your posting some of your live performances to YouTube. My favorite juxtaposition is the original version of "Long Train Running" and a much later live version. Same with "South City Midnight Lady". I can't begin to express my joy. Thank you from an original fan.
I wish I could see you guys in concert. South City Midnight Lady-the most beautiful song. Maybe some day I can. Please come to Midland or Wichita Falls, Texas.
Much Love ❤️ the Doobie Brothers always you are the Best Thank you for keep Rocking you made our lives Alive music is Doctor and listen to the music 🎶 all the time 🎸🎤🎻🎹🎷🥁🎼
This concert was over the top!!! The crowd having fun; you guys having fun; everyone on their feet singing!!This was seriously the best concert I've ever been to! The setlist was perfect, as if I was asked what songs do I want to hear! 😊. I loved it! You are truly amazing!! I hope you stop in again...the fans love you! 👏💥😍

I've loved y'all since the first time I heard you in the 70's. This was the first time I've ever gotten to see y'all. It was so worth the wait. One of the best concerts I've ever been to. Thanks
Hope to see y'all next year when y'all are close to Alabama again. "Listen to the Music" is my favorite song of all time.
Just can't wait to get on the road again- making music with my friends - I just can't wait to get on the road again...
Kind of amuses me I was just listening to Jackson by Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash. Now The Doobie Brothers are going to Jackson too.
Very special birthday wishes being sent to you, John! Thank you for loving what you do and sharing that love with Doobie fans! Your a phenomenal string/guitar player...the best! 😎🎉🎵
Special Guitars and Instruments Man ! HAPPY BIRTHDAY....Since the 90's you folks have been on a non-stop tour that is awesome have fun sounds better then ever great work !!! Hog
Happy Birthday, John. You are just so...cool. Have you guys ever thought of adding "Someone Is Gonna Love Me Tonight" or "All Is Lost" to your current set list?
Steely Dan as with The Doobie brothers was music I grew up on. I remember singing along to Ricky don't lose that number living in California heading to the beach. Walters music was timeless and he will be truly missed. Fly high my music brother. Many folks to jam with in heaven.
Thanks for sharing that Pat, I always love it when one of the Brothers has time to share things like this, it's just really cool, Walter and Donald were so instrumental in their music as I grew up, just like you were to me, music that is timeless, classic stuff, I will miss him, I am so thankful for you Pat, and Tommy, we go way back, thanks for all you do in keeping it real my Brother!
There music was the definition of perfection. Not one note in any of their music could be changed or improved upon. As the saying goes, if I have to explain it you wouldn't understand. Thank you Walter Becker.
