In 1972, the infectious strumming riff that opened ‘Listen to the Music’ introduced fans to the uniquely American sound of the Doobie Brothers. Their blend of rock and R&B produced a string of hits throughout the next decade. At age 40, ‘Listen to the Music’ remains a classic rock radio staple and the Doobies - with founding members Tom Johnston and Patrick Simmons - still maintain a busy tour schedule. Johnston, who wrote ‘Listen to the Music,’ told Ultimate Classic Rock that the musicians around the San Francisco Bay Area helped mold the band’s sound. What was the influence of the Bay. We followed that up with ‘Rockin’ Down the Highway’ and ‘Jesus Is Just Alright’ on that album. Next album we had ‘China Grove’ and ‘Long Train Runnin’. It changed your life financially, I guess. Yeah, it changed your life financially, it also took your life away (laughs).
Johnston wrote many classic Doobie Brothers songs, including "China Grove" and "Long Train Runnin'. This, however, was the only time he produced a guitar lick that he knew would become a hit. Says Johnston: "I was sitting in my bedroom in San Jose. The song was re-recorded by The Doobie Brothers for the country-tribute album Southbound. The new version features a vocal contribution from Blake Shelton, and Hunter Hayes on guitar. The record is a collection of the band's greatest hits featuring lead and backing vocals from a multitude of country artists as well as former vocalist Michael McDonald. The Doobie Brothers performed this at the 2014 CMA Awards backed by Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott, Hunter Hayes and Jennifer Nettles. More songs from The Doobie Brothers
