Doobies Guitarist – Career Has Been a Dream

Doobie Brothers

The Doobie Brothers are still out on the road pushing their 2013 dates up through November. Fans have been raving about the band’s new career-spanning documentary, called Let The Music Play – The Story Of The Doobie Brothers. The film — which pulls no punches in detailing the band’s inner-workings — includes new and exclusive interviews with past and longtime band members.

For guitarist Pat Simmons, the sole member to have survived the numerous lineup changes, life as a Doobie Brother has pretty much been a dream come true. We asked him if he ever expected the Doobies to still be played constantly on the radio and out gigging at sold out shows to a die-hard legion of fans almost 45 years after forming: “Not in a million years (laughs). Y’know, most bands, y’know, last a year or two and — if they’re lucky. For me to to have been able to record and make music with all these great, great players — and still be doing it — it’s just ridiculous (laughs) — I’m not worthy, y’know? For me, y’know, being a part of a band like this is has always been sort of, I felt, a gift (laughs). Not just musically, but the whole opportunity to kind of like the dream, in terms of being able to pursue something that you love to do and make a living out of it.”
