Where’d that name come from? The ‘Little Bitty Pretty One’ is ’Taking’ it to the Streets’? Just what happened in ‘China Grove’? Whaddya mean ‘Jesus is Just Alright’? There’s no better band to team with Kid Rock for concerts that will excite us all, as well as touch our musical souls.”

    Thanks all you guys! Playin’ at the rally is always the best gig for me. You all know how much I love bikes and riding. Thanks to Woody for puttin’ us on the bill again! Sturgis is such a great place to connect with all my motorcycle friends, and I look forward to seeing all you guys. Thanks Cyril for the plug, your blog gives us all the chance to interact with each other, and to keep up with what’s going on in the motorcycle world. By the way Cris and I will be celebrating our anniversary together after meeting at the Sturgis event 24 years ago. We’re so lucky we found each other. And to have you all for our friends.

    The “Doobs” were the first bigtime show I ever saw…many more years ago than I care to admit. I went on to see them 3 more times after that and they never disappoint!

    Pat, you guys laid down the soundtrack to my youth and you stand the test of time. What a perfect addition to the “Chip” lineup.

    The Doobie’s got motorcycling in their soul. Pat Simmons, guitarist, singer and song writer for the Doobie Brothers, rode along on the complete first Cannonball for all 16 days and helped crew and turn wrenches for his wife, Cris Sommer Simmons. I got photos of him laying on the ground and working on her bike. Can’t wait to ride the Black Hills with them and then hear them Rock the Chip!
