I was so fortunate to have the honor of styling the world famous, legendary Doobie Brothers recently.
They are releasing new music in 2011 and I dressed them for their new music video "Far From Home". We shot it at the historic Orpheum Theatre in downtown LA. The song was particularly heartfelt for me as it's written about Pat Simmons' daughter leaving home. It is sweet and nostalgic. I shed quite a few tears off stage as I watched them perform in awe. These guys are rock stars, tried and true. I was barely born and they were busy touring the world and drumming up debauchery.
Now, they are writing songs about their very own daughters leaving the nest. I guess time goes on and even rock stars grow up, huh?
I have NO idea how I could possibly wardrobe anyone as good as how they are dressed in this photo. Almost everyone I know is aware of the fact that I am obsessed with vintage clothes from the 70's. This photo makes me swoon.
I worked to the best of my taste maker ability and shopped my tail off for these guys.
My stock of options was plentiful; from new to vintage, to vintage that wasn't too vintage that they would feel old when they tried it on.
Regardless.....they loved my work on the video and I have been asked to personal shop a little bit as well. I have done some pretty cool jobs in my life, this definitely rates up very high on that list.
I mean, who doesn't love the Doobie Brothers?!!!!
