The Godfather of Pop — Michael McDonald
David Burke, Classic Pop, January 2018
In a career spanning more than 40 years, Michael McDonald has been a member of Steely Dan and The Doobie Brothers, sang with Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin and Patti LaBelle, and scored solo hits in the '80s with 'I Keep Forgettin'' and 'Ya Mo B There' (with James Ingram). Earlier this year, he featured alongside Kenny Loggins on Thundercat's 'Show You the Way', and has just released Wide Open, his first album of original material in nearly two decades. And he plays a handful of UK and Irish dates in March 2018.
