Clips & Pix: The Doobie Brothers/ China Grove

The Southern rockers turned up the heat at The Classic West

Nice clip of The Doobie Brothers playing China Grove at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles on Saturday as part of their show at The Classic West. China Grove was included on 1973’s The Captain and Me, the band’s third studio album, and was also released as the record’s second single. The tune was written by Tom Johnston (guitar, vocals), one of the band’s remaining original members; the other one is Patrick Simmons (guitar, vocals). Since last year, the Doobie Brothers have been a six-piece band.

  1. Wow, can’t believe these guys are still around and still have two original members. Not that there aren’t others from that era that do but I had pretty much lost sight of these guys.


    1. It’s pretty amazing. I kind of knew about it, though I also had not followed them closely.

      I just love these guys and saw them once, though we’re talking 10-plus years – great show!

      The nice thing about the current formation is it still includes the key vocalists from the original line-up. So when they perform, they still very much sound like the good ole’ Doobies I came to like!
