multiple acts while still just in high school. One of his earliest projects, Blue, would be spotted by a talent scout and

He would record with Blue and live the Los Angeles lifestyle for the period of a few years, eventually making the move to
the then unknown band Steely Dan.
Michael would spend the mid 70s drifting in and out of the Steely Dan lineup, practicing
everything from vocals to keyboards for the band and appearing on all of their releases from the mid 70s to the early 80s.

taste of the true rock star lifestyle that would then motivate him to continue to explore a variety of up and coming music
Michael's penchant for songwriting would catch the eye of the legendary rock act The Doobie Brothers, who
would recruit him to join their ranks on a temporary basis that soon became a permanent position for Michael and his key to
the world of fame and rockdom. He would work with the band both on the road and in the studio, recording and performing some
of their most timeless hits such as "Takin' It to the Streets", "Minute by Minute", and "What a Fool Believes", with the lattermost

globe trotting tours and multiple Grammy trips later, Michael McDonald remains one of the paramount musicians of the last
half century, and is showing no signs of slowing down as he releases a constant stream of recordings and is always hitting
