What you got against Michael McDonald?

He was with them for some of their biggest hits.

I'll wait for the line up. Might tone it down to just one day. I'm not 16 anymore. It depends who is playing.

Mexi the water at one filling station was terrible , the other one wasn't as bad. But I actually felt a little ill afterwards on Friday, thought it might have been the water so avoided the filling station the next two days.

It just never sounded like the Doobies when he took over. They lost something.

Or gained something. It's just a matter of perspective.

Their best ranked album was Minute by Minute which Michael McDonald was a part of, not to mention he co wrote the award winning song "What A Fool Believes" with Kenny Loggins.

He's an incredibly good musician. I've seen him 5 times, twice with the Doobies, with Steely Dan, with Boz Skaggs and Donald Fagen, and on his own. Not a super-fan but I have an appreciation for his musical abilities. Definitely a distinctive voice though and he polarizes people for the reasons you have given.

I wouldn't mind having his talent that's for sure.

I have all the Doobie Brothers music and like it, but facts don't lie and Minute by Minute was their biggest selling album, so what that tells us, is that the consumers spoke, and said that they liked Michael McDonald.

This situation is similar to Country music, in that some of it's aged die hard fans, are all pissy about the direction the music has taken, and in interviews and such blame it on the artists.

I on the other hand agree with Blake Shelton who when asked, simply responded that the ones with such a view should be mad at the people buying the music, and not the artists producing music the masses love. You gotta admit he has a point.

Nothing speaks louder on the subject than music released that no one buys.

We all have our own tastes and nothing wrong with that, but there's no need to slam others for not liking the same thing.

Myself I have zero use for rap, but if someone else likes it, more power to them, listen to it all you like.

I love soft rock, and at one point in my life had no use for country music, whereas now I listen to modern country more than anything else, and some of my favorite artists are young ones just starting out.

This certainly explains why you like the DBs with MM. hehe

BTW, IMO the masses are the worst judge of musical talent.

When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.

The lineup from above.

Chilliwack!

Now there’s a great, no frills, no gimmicks, just give ‘er rock band that I used to dance to in theirs and my younger years, and I would like to hear them from my back yard any day--just as there's a certain event featuring 'todays' music that I enjoy hearing from my bedroom every year too. People having a good time!

Also, I just watched some of Chilliwacks live stuff from recent gigs that’s been uploaded to Youtube and I’m pretty sure they won’t disappoint.

To those who were PO last year because of the noise, putting you on warning August 11-13 it is back.
So make plans to be elsewhere if it bothered you last year.
