Five good minutes (take a break)

Go back to good times for five minutes with the Doobie Brothers:

As one of the most popular Californian pop/rock bands of the '70s, the Doobie Brothers evolved from a mellow, post-hippie boogie band to a slick, soul-inflected pop band by the end of the decade. Along the way, the group racked up a string of gold and platinum albums in the U.S., along with a number of radio hits like "Listen to the Music," "Black Water," and "China Grove."



The roots of the Doobie Brothers lie in Pud, a short-lived Californian country-rock band in the vein of Moby Grape featuring guitarist/vocalist Tom Johnston and drummer John Hartman. After Pud collapsed in 1969, the pair began jamming with bassist Dave Shogren and guitarist Patrick Simmons. Eventually, the quartet decided to form a group, naming themselves the Doobie Brothers.

If you feel like having something to listen to, I have created a rather eclectic mixed bag music station on pandora.com, based on some of my favorite artists.

Everything from screaming hard rock to some rather mellow new age type stuff...old and new.

I am listening to "Tangerine Dream - Rubycon" right now.   :-*
