Michael McDonald is a well-known singer who has played with Steely Dan, The Doobie Brothers, and even had a solo career of his own. Known for his distinct voice, with his soft falsetto backing vocals, and his smooth lead vocals, McDonald is a highly respected session vocalist, and was hired by the Doobies because of his taleneted pipes. A real soulful and tender voice, McDonald is a wonderful singer.
Excuse the small selection, I just did a quick spot of notewatching on YouTube.

B4s in "Peg". Specifically at 7:30 for a very clear one by itself.

Cool! I was trying to find lows in this performance, but I completely missed the G4s.

Yeah, he bottoms out at an F3. So close... I'll try and help out more later on. I'm kind of obsessed with Steely Dan, so if he has more work with them I'll try to check it out. Smile
