Doobie Brothers at Hard Rock Live February 24

It's funny to think an act originally from California could sound so swampy and Southern. But the Doobie Brothers were very much of their time.

It was the early '70s, and these happily hairy guys seemed to embody everything about a sort of freewheeling, post-hippie, motorcycle-on-a-long-road sort of aesthetic. "Listen to the Music," one of the band's biggest hits, captures it all in feel-good song form with an added dose of booze and maybe some pharmaceuticals.

The Doobies rode out the '70s hard, disbanding in the early '80s. But the breakup lasted only a few years. And from about 1987 to today, the band has played more or less continuously.
