    Default Lol Who Convinced Dave to sing a Michael McDonald song?

    Did McDonald actually show up in the studio to explain 'I'll Wait'? Great song imo btw.

    Reading in Roth's book that he didn't care for Desmond Childs...I wouldn't think Roth would like hanging with "soul brotha" McDonald even for a second.

    Anybody know the story behind this?

    Just seems like a funny scene to me for some reason.

    Michael McDonald was the Sammy Hagar of the Doobie Brothers.

    Actually he was worse than that. At least Hagar was never a member of Steely Dan, the absolutely shittiest excuse for a "band" to ever come out of the 1970's.

    And y'all know that I hate the song "I'll Wait" so don't even bother going there.

    Welcome back, Van HALEN!!!!

    ...It's the BAND and Dave is really the cat that can front VH. He sang his ASS off and was really cool. No cheese here guys, this is filet Mignon! - Steve Lukather's comment after witnessing a Van HALEN 2007 rehearsal

    Of course. Who could forget that classic tape recorder falling out of Rerun's jacket onto the floor? The band stopped mid-song and the crowd stopped cheering as they all looked at Rerun. Damn bootlegger.

    I was close, the band didn't stop mid-song, the song was already over. But here you go....

    Classic! And who can forget Rog's infamous line, when interviewing the Doob's for the school paper, "So, which Doobie you be?".

    Real newbies don't generally post like mad and start threads on their first day. They read, absorb, get a feel for the place, maybe say Hi in Non, or post in a safe place like songs or Non VH music.

    However, aliases always jump right in the thick.

    There are exceptions. They're few and far between, though.
