Hear Michael McDonald chat and perform on 'FUV Live tonight at 8. He hit it big singing lead on hits with The Doobie Brothers starting in 1976, but before that he was a backing vocalist for Steely Dan. Who else got their start as a backing vocalist before taking center stage? We'll spin a set after 9am.

Here's what we played:

Emmylou Harris "Deeper Well"

Sheryl Crow "All I Wanna Do"

Paula Cole "Where Have All the Cowboys Gone"

Elton John "Harmony"
