John Hartman

John Hartman’s drumming is heard on some of The Doobie Brothers’ most ubiquitous hits: “Listen the Music,” “China Grove,” “Long Train Runnin’” and “Jesus is Just Alright” among them. The founding member of one of rock’s most enduring bands has died at the age of 72.

The current Doobie Brothers – including fellow founders Tom Johnston and Patrick Simmons – announced the death of the man they called “Little John,” on their official social media pages.

“John was a wild spirit, great drummer and showman … he was also a close friend for many years and an intricate part of the band personality.”

The Doobie Brothers’ spokesperson confirmed Hartman’s death to USA TODAY.
