The man, the beard, the icon

Long before Warren & Nate were regulatin’ in the 213, Michael McDonald was killin’ b*tches on stage with the Doobie Brothers and mackin’ hoes up in high-rise bachelor pads like the one depicted in this video… all with a beard that would make Derryn Hinch envious and a voice like a grizzly bear mumbling underwater.

Recommended listening: Minute By Minute, Doobie Brothers (Warner Brothers, 1978); If That’s What It Takes, Michael McDonald (Warner Brothers, 1982)

While you’re at it, peep Episode 7 of ‘Yacht Rock’. “The smooth grooves of this song alone will make it to at least number two…”
