DOOBIE BROTHERS: Lead New Poll for Rock Hall Election

The Doobie Brothers top a new poll of deserving bands not yet in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

When surveyed more than 1,300 people, the rockers known for "Long Train Runnin'," "Listen to the Music" and "China Grove" were endorsed by 25 percent of the voters -- more than double the support for any other band.

The Monkees and Foreigner tied for second with 11 percent. They were followed in order by Depeche Mode, Soundgarden and Styx. Blood Sweat and Tears, Three Dog Night, The Commodores and The Smiths round out the Top 10.

A highlight of the Doobies' summer tour with Santana has been their nightly collaboration during the headliner's' set. Tuesday night in Mansfield, Massachusetts and Wednesday in Hartford, Connecticut, they joined forces for "Some Kind of Wonderful," the '60s soul obscurity covered by Grand Funk. Doobies saxophonist Marc Russo stayed onstage to spice up the next song, Santana's "Everybody's Everything."
