Ex-Doobie Brother Michael McDonald reunites with Steely Dan for tour
http://www.cnn.com/2006/SHOWBIZ/Music/08/03/music.micha...

"NASHVILLE, Tennessee (AP) -- The soulful songs, the floppy mop of premature gray, the bluesy baritone: "American Idol" winner Taylor Hicks can hardly avoid comparisons to former Doobie Brothers singer Michael McDonald.

Not that he's tried. Hicks sang the Doobies' "Takin' It To the Streets" on the show and recorded it for the B-side of his first single, "Do I Make You Proud."

McDonald, who once epitomized the blue-eyed soul that Hicks has introduced to a new generation, is flattered by the comparisons.

"I think he's fantastic, I really do," McDonald said in a recent phone call from South Carolina. "He seems to have that basic, well-developed talent that comes from playing a lot of nightclubs and paying your dues.""

9. McDonald and Walter Becker both live on Maui
when not gigging. McDonald has, in fact, appeared with the Honolulu Symphony (SF gets Metallica, we get Michael McDonald...)

There are enough other big names over there (at least part-year) that the classic rock station has "Rock Star Wednesday", where they call one of them up and chat.

Say, is Becker "Steely" or "Dan"? :shrug:
