Who are the Doobie Brothers?
The Doobie Brothers emerged in the 1970s, quickly establishing themselves as one of the most popular California pop/rock outfits of the decade. Over the course of their career, the Doobie Brothers’ sound evolved, initially starting out with a mellow boogie band vibe and transforming into a soul-influenced pop sound thanks to the addition of frontman Michael McDonald in 1975. The group reached the height of their success in the 1970s, parting ways in 1982 with the departure of McDonald. They reunited in 1987, with Tim Johnston filling in his previous roll of frontman over the course of the next few decades. The Doobie Brothers have sold over 40 million albums worldwide throughout their five decades in the spotlight. Their history has been broken down into three eras, with each incarnation emphasizing vocal harmonies, leading to their Vocal Group Hall of Fame induction in 2004.
