Patrick Simmons Is So Wrong


Patrick Simmons (born October 19, 1948) is an American musician best known as a member of the rock band The Doobie Brothers. Born in Aberdeen, Washington, he has been the only perpetual member of the band throughout their tenure. Simmons wrote many songs for the Doobie Brothers, including “South City Midnight Lady”, “Dependin’ On You”, “Echoes of Love”, and “Black Water,” the group’s first #1 record.

The Doobie Brothers initially broke up in 1982, largely on account of Simmons’ decision to leave the group, as he was its sole remaining original member. In 1983, Simmons released his first solo album, Arcade, on Elektra Records. It yielded his only top 40 hit, “So Wrong”, which peaked at #30 on the Billboard Hot 100.
