Ted Templeman is the person who brought the Doobie Brothers into the public eye. He helped us shape our sound while bringing out the best of the styles we naturally had as individuals. That’s what great producers do.

Tom Johnson, founding member of the Doobie Brothers, Class of 2020 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee

The Doobies owe so much to Ted Templeman. He took this little old biker band from San Jose and turned us into a well-oiled machine. He understood that the Doobies had the talent and songs to make great albums — we just needed someone to help us combine all of our musical components into something special that could connect with the audience. 

Pat Simmons, founding member of the Doobie Brothers, Class of 2020 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee

[Ted Templeman is] an excellent addition for those interested in the nuts and bolts of the recording process and the triumphs and tribulations of the bands and solo artists of the time.
