Three Strikingly Familiar Hit Singles

So what do the songs ‘Werewolves of London’, ‘Sweet Home Alabama’, and ‘All Summer Long’ all have in common? They all have the haunting cords used in the entire song, some say they could have been stolen and re-written on the same day.

There is indeed a story within the story of this song – Warren Zevon had a moderately successful writing and performing career, and hung around all the big stars from the 70s like Bob Seger, Jackson Browne and the Eagles. Warren dies in September of 2003, from cancer of the abdominal lining associated with exposure to asbestos. Warren’s family thinks it came from Zevon’s childhood, playing in the attic of his father’s carpet store in Arizona.

As you know, Lynyrd Skynyrd lost three of its original members in a plane crash in 1977, while Kid Rock continues to enjoy success on the road – in spite of his recent Confederate flag controversy

Three songs all with the same haunting melody, and the stories of happiness, joy, and sorrow they share.

The Doobie Brothers Sue Doobie Brothers Corp

This just in… The Doobie Brothers are suing the Doobie Brothers. Sort of. The band that gave us ‘Listen to the Music’, ‘Black Water’, “What a Fool Believes’, ‘Minute by Minute’ and more have, as The Doobie Brothers Corp. and Doobro Entertainment, completed initial litigation steps to bring suit to a newly formed ’70s folk-rock cover duo called the Doobie Decibel System.

The plaintiffs and lawsuit allege that the group Doobie Decibel System’s name is “confusingly similar” to the Doobie Brothers. The guys in the band and their lawyers seek punitive damages for trademark infringement, false designation, and unfair competition.

The Doobie Decibel System, formed in June, 2014 does songs from the Doobie Brothers era, but also original songs; frankly thanks to the Doobie Brothers we all know about this twosome, and as they say in Hollywood – “Any publicity is good publicity”. Well, we’ll see you in court.
