Patrick Simmons spoke by phone from L.A., during a break from the band’s intense recording sessions.  The new, untitled album is “a little bit of everything,” he said.  “Some rockin’ stuff, Latin, jazzy stuff, folky harmony-laden stuff.  Some R&B, bluesy, some East Bay funk that we do.  Some nice finger-pickin’ stuff here and there. Cool slide work. Dobro.  Willie Nelson is a guest vocalist.”

Nelson and Simmons collaborated on a song called “I Know We Won.”

John McFee, guitars and vocals, is the one who plays the dobro. The lineup also includes Guy Allison on keyboards and vocals; Michael Hossack, drums; Tom Johnston, guitar and vocals; Simmons, guitar and vocals; Marc Russo, saxophones; Skylark, bass and vocals; Ed Toth, drums.  Toth is one of the newer additions to the group, but having two drummers has always been part of what made the Doobies.
