DOOBIE BROS: The Reward Of Facelessness

Who were they? Just a bunch of street people who “looked like bikers and said they wanted to be rock ‘n’ roll stars” — with precious little indication that they had the chops to back up that fantasy. The only asset: a chunky, innocuous rhythm guitar sound, with colorless singing that epitomized the amateur musician/fulltime doper acoustic sound that pervaded hip enclaves from Santa Fe to San Mateo.
