We’re posting this to confirm the sad news that’s been circulating very quickly.
Doobie Brothers drummer Michael Hossack passed away yesterday in Dubois, Wyoming, at the age of 65. His family was by his side. Our thoughts and condolences go out to his family and loved ones. We will miss him greatly.
To this I say… we will all miss him greatly, he was one of the best rock drummers to ever hold the sticks.
