Between his string of hits with the Doobie Brothers and his solo career, five-time Grammy winner Michael McDonald seemed to be everywhere in the early-'80s, but the songs that featured his distinctive voice only told part of the story -- he was also a busy songwriter whose list of credits included a surprising collaboration with Van Halen.
On April 1, Rhino will release 'This Is Your Life,' a tribute album to Ronnie James Dio that will raise funds for his Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund. As of today (Feb. 24), the first single from the record, a cover of 'Starstruck' by Motorhead with Biff Byford of Saxon, is now streaming.
On Feb. 25, Legacy will give Johnny Winter's incredible career the box set treatment with the four-disc 'True To The Blues: The Johnny Winter Story' -- but you don't have to wait until then to sample the music, because your friends at Ultimate Classic Rock have a song premiere right here.
