I think this is the place to congratulate Tanya Tucker with her first ever Grammy wins for Best Country Song (Bring my flowers now) and Best Country album (While I'm livin'). Well deserved in my opinion. Glen's career was revived by his producer Julian Raymond. I am glad Tanya has found her "Julians" too: songwriter Brandi Carlisle and producer Shooter Jennings.

Cool. This is totally new to me. I never knew there was a link between Glen and the Doobie Brothers. Thanks Randy!

In total agreement. I'm big fan of Tom Johnston with the Doobies. Agree Michael McDonald is talented but prefer Tom by a huge margin. Although McFee has been with them a long time, yes he certainly wasn't originally with them. Think he took Jeff Skunk Baxter's place when him and Michael Mcdonald got into it idk.

Randy...
Oh...that guy! I am a huge Doobie fan and never ever would have put the two together, although to be candidly honest, he came on with the Doobies after I soured on them when Johnston left and McDonald changed directions (although I am a fan of McDonald's talents and voice...he ruined the DB, imo). You Listen to "The Captain and Me" and then any album from about 77 on...far from being the same group...although hugely popular.

But...I had wondered at times...who the heck is that dude. Thanks for schooling me. Makes you wonder...how did he end up in Glen's band during that time. My guess is that it has to do with Julian, somehow.

Pretty sure it was wikipedia where I read John had played on this song (maybe others on MGC)then looked up the "Time of my life" video on YT.

So it was definitely that I did not just notice him on the video. I guess I cheated. lol

That is certainly John Mcfee playing guitar standing behind the mandolin and keyboard player.

Randy...
I think you have thrown me for a loop here...unless you are mistaking McFee for Todd Youth, who sadly passed away last year.

And while we are on the MGC subject, George Doering is a renown musician that showed up to help Glen out during that time.

Probably you tube is responsible as much as anything for people like me becoming a bigger fan than ever of artists. Latest ones I've been watching a lot of lately is the doobie brothers. And never noticed, like Jay surely did , that John Mcfee played guitar on Meet Glen Campbell.

A lot of peers of Glen's are mentioned in this Toby Keith song... and not surprisingly (Toby Keith is a big GC fan) so is Glen himself!

Take a listen to That's Country Bro by Toby Keith.
