The Doobie Brothers Writing New Music


As if the Doobie Brothers being on a huge North American tour with Steely Dan isn’t enough, the bands long time member John McFee, has announced that the band are also working on new music for what could potentially be a new album.

In an interview with Billboard, McFee said: “That’s our plan. We do want to make some new music. As a matter of fact, we have gone in and already cut four songs.”

The last music released by the band was 2014’s Southbound. It was a collection of the band’s classic tunes re-recorded by a host of country artists. Before that, the last original music to surface was 2010’s World Gone Crazy.

In related Doobie Brothers news, the band announced via Twitter that Marc Quiñones, who has been the longtime percussionist for the Allman Brothers Band has joined the band for the tour.

It’s a pretty big itinerary for the Doobie Brothers, as well as the Steely Dan dates the band also has a big night booked as support for The Eagles on September 22nd in San Diego.
