You have more than one sibling and I would love for you. To to share a little bit worried about that. Boy Do I. Have More than one of laying.

"Michael McDonald's voice is perhaps one of the most recognizable in pop music could be due to his hits with the Doobie brothers could also be related to the hip hop artist who sample his records but frame producer Jonathan Shift let has another theory aimed since the mid nineteen seventies MacDonald has performed background vocals on hundreds of recordings by other artists see if you recognize him in this bit from steely Dan movie talk to you hello. This is Michael McDonald. You know that was a kind of an elite group in L._A.. Area that I really always felt very proud to be a part of I got to single awesome pretty great singers Howard you James Ingram Luther Vandross Michael Jackson and I always kind of felt like that was a real feather in my cap to be able to step up to the Mike with those guys and it was also great way for me to get get in the studio in here stuff before it was actually released. It's Kinda like being a fly on the wall background singer back. That's how I got the job of student Davos up working at casuals with some of the guys who were actually playing rhythm section on records and <hes> and singing backgrounds for those guys selling. Another records that they were doing I did Kinda get used to hearing me sing with myself and I realized that there's something to that when the same singers Zinger sings all the parts. There's a certain psych sibling harmony. You're you're probably tighter with yourself in anyone else on the planet it's going to be you know which is what Donald and Walter did with me for the steely Dan track bad sneakers curse you suddenly realize that's kind of sound that you probably wouldn't get any other way but to use the same person singing all the parts and then doubling all the parts so that was really one of the first times I became keenly aware of that sound which some people bowl think of as the Michael McConnell background sound but then on subsequent records toward people were saying well. How did you get that sound? I could say well you know I I did all the parts of myself and double them go. Let's do that we can talk about all those recordings that you run for a long time but I just wanted to fast forward a little bit to some of the more recent collaborations that you've donald sure sounds like grizzly bear to me yeah very unique band grizzly. Grizzly bear <hes> and I I really came out of the blue they contacted me and I had not heard the van but they sent me a track and it just was so fresh and different end is seemingly abandoned was is really trying to exercise a certain kind of musicality Abner Amanda Schone Swim <hes> just did that record not that long ago seemingly <hes> House and Santa Barbara where they had kind of camped set up camp in Amanda her mom was Donna Summer and I met Amanda which is about ten years old is first time matter and all these years later singing on record twitter as my friend Steve Brunner Aka under a great experience. I have to give credit to Kenny loggins on that. One Kenny's <UNK> SON had heard Steve in an interview kind of mentioned myself and Kenny is a couple of his influences. His son you know was a big fan of thunder cat as was my daughter at the time and so his son contacted Kenny. Kennedy and dad you gotTa call this guy and maybe write something with them. You know so Kenny kind of reached out to Steve Steve got back to us and we all got together studio in Ojai California and listened to a bunch of music together together which was great fun and then we decided to write that tuned together <hes> something Steve had already started and so we added are two cents in <hes> Steve went and mixed in general question. What are you looking for? If anything in these kinds of collaborations I think just a chance to find something that strikes match for army and I I look in every direction for that. You know not just new artists in new collaborations with contemporary artists. I still look to the past for a lot of my inspiration laid on the bus last night my headphones on listening losing two hours of Curtis Mayfield. He's just you know some of those groups are just so infectious and so wonderful in his lyrics of course just so stream of consciousness and so poignant you know much like the guys he's like Steve Brunner Anderson and Kendrick Lamar those guys of today they're just kind of breaking new ground and he was definitely unique voice for Modern Soul Patrick one or two Michael McDonald performs at the Hollywood bowl on July thirty first and that's it for this week.

"Like that. I thought it was impressive today in Atlanta. The Cowboys Rabaul I don't wanna say to make second-half adjustments with the able to kind of do an impressive things. I thought the most impressive thing they did it as obvious sounds was Zeke touchdown after the Vandross section because that was a moment where they had the six point lead because of the missed extra point. And they got the ball back off the interception kind of almost right away. After the Dak Prescott rushing touchdown. And that was moment where the general bury them bury them put them away. And granted the falcons get back into a little bit later on. With the point was they went up to possessions on the falcons the Atlanta Falcons coming into this game. Head scored thirty points in four of their five homes. Eighty percent, obviously. And they were held under twenty points today. I mean, the Cowboys defense kind of segue here not only held them under thirty but held them under twenty. They hadn't been held under twenty all season long at the Mercedes Benz stadium. And the first touchdown came with two minutes left in the game. The Cowboys held them touchdown this for fifty eight minutes in the literal land where they thrive more than anywhere. Yeah. I mean. No, I think that's a big thing to point to you know, and Julia what do you have like six catches under ten or twenty ARD and touchdown. You know, that may be big numbers for other people. That's those are mediocre numbers for Julio Jones and it was inflated in the touchdown. Catch was very very near the end. Exactly. So so now again, the Cowboys defense continues to them and straight consistency demonstrate ability to stop the big player or the significant contributor from the other team. And you know, they had pressure on Matt Ryan the entire day. Well, they they missed him. Just barely a couple of times. But he had pressured his face and was trying to get rid of you know, they they changed their scheme to have him. Get rid of the ball quickly on every possession of. I also think it's worth pointing out that the Cowboys did everything they did defensively with no, David Irving, no taco, Charlton known towards and no, Sean leap. I mean. That's you know, you think back to the game in Atlanta last year. When Sean Lee wasn't there and not imported honor anything, but we later the eagles, it certainly that was the worst loss everyday stadium. And so that is I mean, I don't know who to attribute the bulk of that credit whether that's Rodman Chris shar, whether that's late Bandrich extreme Smith, whether it's DeMarcus Lawrence, whether it's wanting to Gregory, whether it's Tyrone Crawford. Whether it's Byron Jones, whether it's Jeff heath who got hit just tremendously hard today. Julio jones. I mean, they really gelling collective unit. Yeah. Just say that I would not, you know, give credit anyone individual. I think they're they're playing together they're complementing each other's abilities. And and you know, the results are showing..

And I don't know Donnie if you ever remember this that the story about ROY orbison that one of the reasons why he died of I think he had a heart attack was he was yo-yo dieters.

So my my only complaint was that. Okay, so I'm not going to get this a tin. My only complaint was that that her son was just two short. I'm wanted to hear more from her. So so because of that, I'm going to say, well, I give it like a a nine, but let's say, but it's still great. So my favorite tracks on this album. Black beacon mayor feature lied about mecca. It's you peaching Raphael Sadique questions featuring Sheila green. So amazing Petri Luther Vandross do it together featuring.
