The Doobie Brothers — Anselmo Valencia Amphitheater (Ava), Tucson   1 comment

This past Wednesday, the Doobie Brothers rocked the hot (but comfortable) Sonoran Desert night in Tucson, with some of the best American rock ever. This is not your average warmed-over band from the past — they are a fined-tune group that can jam with the best. These guys are willing to work. Believe me, if you can make it to one of their concerts you will be glad you did.

The concert included a few songs from their new CD, World Gone Crazy, but for the most part, it was a night of oldies, the music you hear on “Classic Rock” radio. The new stuff is good, but it sounds like the 70’s. Why come out with new 70’s music? It’s still old and has to compete with the old Doobies we love.

The Doobie Brothers could not get arrested with their new album.  But they just did a CMT Crossroads with Luke Bryan and blew him off the stage, Tom Johnston can still sing!  (http://bit.ly/iAKfFH)  CMT works because the audience still believes in it.  MTV airs no music and VH1 makes you look like a tool, stay away.  Like Tom Johnston, you want to show you’ve still got it, you want to remind people how great you were…and still are. — Lefsetz Letter

The following video is a series of clips from the concert designed to give the viewer a feel for the personal view of our experience for classic Doobies in 2011. Remember, great music has no boundaries! Enjoy!
