The Doobie Brothers' Michael McDonald - Road Stories with Dave Lawrence

Clay Patrick McBride

This week HPR is welcoming The Doobie Brothers to our Road Stories interview series ahead of a pair of area dates next week.

Listen for chats thru Friday and today, as All Things Considered Host Dave Lawrence welcomes back vocalist and keyboardist Michael McDonald.

Mike shared stories about some of the hysterical, and often incongruous connections late publicist David Gest brought into their lives, from guest-starring on the What's Happening TV show, to outrageous encounters with Michael Jackson, Al Green and others.

The Doobie Brothers play the MACC next Tuesday and Waikiki Shell next Friday.

See a recent Doobie Brothers concert, recorded this month at the Budokan in Tokyo:
