Michael Hossack, R. I. P.

The Washington Post: Longtime Doobie Brothers drummer Michael Hossack has died at age 65.

The band’s manager, Bruce Cohn, said in a statement that Hossack died of cancer on Monday in his home in Dubois (DO’-boys), Wyo.

Hossack played with the group from 1971 to 1973 and rejoined in 1987. His drumming can be heard on early hits including “Listen To The Music,” ‘’China Grove” and “Blackwater.” He stopped performing with the band two years ago while struggling with cancer.
