Despite one of the most egregious snubs the music industry has ever witnessed, the Doobie Brothers keep on performing and recording.
“I think it’s a bit of an illusion as to who likes what kind of music. Just cause you’re a country artist doesn’t mean you don’t like rock and roll, and just because you’re playing rock and roll doesn’t mean you don’t like country.” – Patrick Simmons
Calling in from a lobby in Rochester, soulful singer Michael McDonald spoke with Scott Shannon on WCBS-FM’s Star Phone about touring with The Doobie Brothers, his favorite Motown hits, and how big that 40-Year-Old Virgin scene still is.
We try to keep the travesties at a minimum at CBS-FM, so we’re going to let you do the talking, and by talking we mean voting.
The upcoming album project will feature select Doobie Brothers hits performed by the band and former lead singer Michael McDonald, as well as numerous country guest stars.
Last night (March 13) on Late Night, Jimmy Fallon and this week’s musician-in-residence, Justin Timberlake, donned the monstrous white coifs and dad suits (but not ties) of Michael McDonald for a very adult-contemporary version of “Row, Row, Row Your Boat.”
As the GRAMMYs approach, we talked to some serious detractors of the awards: Stone Sour. If you think the Recording Academy gets it wrong far too often, these guys are with you. But a funny thing happened when Radio.com played them a selection of Record of the Year winners, from the very first one in 1959 to some more recent selections: they liked what they heard.
Two of the 1970s most popular bands, Chicago and the Doobie Brothers, will partner for their annual summer tour of amphitheatres beginning July 11.
Michael McDonald recently kicked off the Dukes of September tour in St. Louis, Missouri alongside Donald Fagen of Steely Dan and Bozz Scaggs. While in his hometown, the singer talked to local radio station Fresh 102.5 about the musical connection him and Fagen have had for forty years.
Summer’s here, which means the time is right for dancing in the seats (or on the lawn, if you’re on a tight budget) under the stars. As the temperature rises, rock, pop and country tours tend to leave arenas to give fans the experience of hearing their favorite performers live under the stars (or under the rain, if you’re unlucky).
