When I was a kid I couldn't get enough of Michael McDonald's voice. It was husky. Thick. Smooth. And soulful as hell!!!! That white boy could sing!!! The Doobie Brothers wouldn't have been the same without him. I'd love to meet him one day and tell him how much I enjoyed his music. Back then, vocalists could sing in AND out of the studio! Wherever he is today, I hope he's still singin'!!!!!!!
