    What a wonderful band. And hate me if you like, but I also dug the R&B vibe Michael McDonald brought to the band. So what if it was a departure from the guitar-driven rock of their earlier stuff; they made some truly great music.

    I enjoyed that...thanks!

    Love it....those Harmonies!....whew.
    The Doobies have always been in my top 10 favs.

    Yep....that's me....never cared for Micheal's lead vocals and from my (totally irrelevant) opinion was not an appealing vocal fit.
    I do not mean to diminish/disrespect his obvious talent/musicianship.....personal taste only.

    In fact, I just very recently mustered up the courage to post up (4) YT videos (from a of a total of 17) playing along with my favs to keep my rhythm chops up.
    "Listen To The Music" is the first one I started with.....a blast to play along with and I never tire of it....OR the Doobies.
    I also video'd Another Park Another Sunday and Long Train Running (thanks to tonedr-Dale).....love them all.

    A good day to all.....be smart/stay safe.

    (I do have brief personal DB related story from 1978 but don't want to derail)

    I thought this was particularly nice. I am a big fan of Playing for Change and loved that they took the time to contribute.

    I've always been a fan of the Doobies, long before I met and became friends with drummer Mike Hossack, due to our mutual interest in guns and concealed carry (I was the Sheriff's Department firearms instructor and CCW qualifications guy in Lake County, CA, at the time).

    Through that friendship I got to attend a number of concerts and after-gig parties with the band. One of my favorite Doobie songs is "Dangerous." Mike has been gone for some years now (as has the other Doobie drummer in this video, Keith Knudsen). Here's a link to a live performance in New York city. Such a lot of talent in this band!

    I like MM, but it's just the difference in sound that he made. The band before his arrival & after would make one think that it was a totally different band. He turned them into Steely Dan lite.

    Plus, by all the accounts that I have read he was the primary reason the Skunk got the boot. Not a good reason for me to admire him much.

    Love the Doobies. I even like the Michael McDonald era. Had lunch with Keith Knudsen when I was in college just before their soundcheck at our University. Such a creative band.
