Michael McDonald Confirms Mission to Re-Record Every Tune Sung by a Black Guy

(Los Angeles, CA) Multiple Grammy Award-winner Michael McDonald, former frontman of the Doobie Brothers and succesful solo artist, made official what many have long suspected.

"It is my goal to take every original song crooned by a black guy and turn it into my own," he said to National Nitwit reporters yesterday. "My gritty, blue-eyed soul sound will now become the only way you can remember all the great R&B songs of the past."

McDonald discussed a parallel between his philosophy and an existing medium.

"It's kinda like Muzak, in a way," he said. "They take every song you ever heard, re-record it, and make it bland and palatable for every setting. I am like the Muzak of Motown, plus Stax, Volt, Atlantic, and Buddha Records."

His renditions of Motown hits recently earned him his first Platinum record as a solo artist and yet another Grammy nomination.

"Yeah, that was gratifying, especially since it was basically like a karaoke session," he said. "I got in there, knocked that album out in 7 days, and I'm a mega-freaking-zillionaire now. Go figure." Earth+day

Comments:
man, did that fucker ruin all that was good and holy about the Doobies.
 
Yes he did anonymous, and let me go on the record as saying that I hate Michael McDonald.
 
I'll take "Black Water" over "Takin' it to the Streets" any day of the week!
 
Heh. I love the running Michael McDonald gag joke in the 40 year Old Virgin.
 
Idiots! Mike's great. You're all just jealous. LMAO!
