The Doobie Brothers released their 15th studio album, LIBERTÉ, in October of last year. The album featured Johnson, Simmons, and McFee as a three-piece. The album, and the accompanying EP, were the legendary outfit’s first original music since 2010. The band’s signature harmonies and unparalleled songwriting were all present, hailing the Doobies as a continued rock n’ roll tour de force.
