Between 1970-1982 the Doobie Brothers were one of the top-selling American rock bands. In 1976 former Steely Dan vocalist Michael McDonald was brought into the band after lead singer Tom Johnson became seriously ill on tour. Some off the best known Doobie Brothers songs were recorded with McDonald. In 1982 the singer/songwriter broke up the band when he left to go solo with his album If That's What It Takes. The albums big hit single was I Keep Forgettin' (Every Time You're Near), which was based on the 1962 Lieber & Stroller song of the same title - which has been covered by David Bowie, Joe Cocker and others. McDonald's variation of I Keep Forgettin' has been sampled numerous times, such as on Warren G's 1992 hit single Regulate. In this video clip Michael McDonald performs I Keep Forgettin' with the Doobie Brothers at the final show before they broke up.
