The Doobie Brothers may have their next musical project in sight.
Guitarist and co-founder Patrick Simmons tells us the group has been in Nashville working on an album that's in its very early stages but sounds like it could turn into something interesting:
"We are kinda working on a project in Nashville, Tenn., and we'll see how that comes together...It's kind of an Americana thing we're working on. It's a collaborative thing, with some other artists. It's so early that I don't really have any, it's not really anything that has legs yet. It's probably just wishful thinking at this point...So we'll see how it goes. I'm never sure 'til it happens; that's why I don't really have too much to say about it, 'cause I don't really know where it's going right now."
The Doobies' last studio album, "World Gone Crazy," came out in 2010. The Doobies will perform at the Harley-Davidson 110th anniversary festival on Thursday (August 29) in Milwaukee and have dates booked until early November.
