VH1 Biography: 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.

It's Time to Bench 'Team B'
Second-guessing the CIA has led the U.S. astray.
By Lawrence Korb
The roots of the problem go back to May 6, 1976, when the director of Central Intelligence, George H.W. Bush, created the first Team B to assess a report his agency had done on Soviet strategic objectives
Jon Stewart traces the roots of off-shore drilling from Bush 41's initial ban, to both candidates' realistic and sensible positions against it, to both candidates' public opinion-pandering flip-flop in support of it.
You really have to marvel at how the GOP is able to transform a problem they're primarily responsible for creating into an issue that they base their entire 2008 strategy on. What's worse, they somehow manage to convince a majority of Americans in the process that their so-called "solution" -- which is nothing other than a Big Oil land giveaway that would have ZERO short-term impact -- is somehow a great idea. It really is a classic example of what Naomi Klein has coined the "Shock Doctrine."
