Doobie Brothers Making New Album – with Michael McDonald

Hard to believe, but…

It’s been nearly half a century since the Doobie Brothers made an album with Michael McDonald.  Now, the wait – “Minute By Minute” – is nearly over.

Founding member, Pat Simmons, said on Facebook that the band is “very close to finishing up an album’s worth of new songs” with McDonald.

The Doobies’ last full studio album with McDonald was 1980’s One Step Closer.

He rejoined the band in 2021 for their 50th anniversary tour.

Simmons didn’t give a timetable for when the album would be ready, but called it “Some of the best music we’ve ever made together!
