Dave Mason & Mick Fleetwood, Michael McDonald, Sammy Hagar and Members of The Doobie Brothers Remake the Iconic “FEELIN’ ALRIGHT”
Dave Mason and friends have taken the downtime during quarantine to remake one of Mason’s most iconic and heavily covered songs since its release in 1968 - “Feelin’ Alright.” Dubbed ‘Dave Mason and the Quarantines’, the new song features Mason singing along with Mick Fleetwood, Sammy Hagar, Michael McDonald and The Doobie Brothers: John McFee, Tom Johnston, John Cowan and Pat Simmons. Dave’s longtime drummer, Alvino Bennett, also lends a hand as does Pat Simmons, Jr., Pat’s son, joining in the fun. The song premieres exclusively on SiriusXM’s Classic Vinyl Channel (Ch. 26) today at 9am ET, and the accompanying video premieres on SiriusXM here.
Santana played a career-spanning set that included enough of the early stuff and enough of the later stuff to please everyone in the seasoned and enthusiastic crowd. The show started with some video images of Woodstock and the beginnings of the band shown to a Miles Davis soundtrack, the band launched into Soul Sacrifice, Jingo, Evil Ways, and A Love Supreme. Quite a start!

Carlos Santana, to paraphrase a funky expression, “tore the roof off that sucker,” on June 27 at a cool and comfortable evening outing near Sacramento, California. He and the band blasted out of the gate, following a big-screen montage of old Santana Woodstock-era footage, with an exhilarating version of “Soul Sacrifice,” the epic instrumental that made the country sit up and take notice 50 years ago, both on the band’s eponymous first record, as well as the forever indelible version performed at Woodstock.
The Doobie Brothers have been delivering mind-blowing, roots-based, harmony-laden, guitar-driven rock and roll for over four decades, selling more than 48 million albums and winning four GRAMMY® Awards. In November 2018, they returned to the Beacon Theatre in New York City for the first time in 25 years to perform two of their landmark albums, Toulouse Street and The Captain and Me. These historic concerts offered an opportunity for Doobie fans to hear deep cuts and songs never before performed live by the band.
Grateful Web recently had the honor of speaking with Bill Payne about the upcoming milestone of 50 years of Little Feat in 2019. Payne’s depth as an artist goes much farther than Little Feat’s founding pianist, co-songwriter and vocalist. A photographer, poet, one of the hardest working and best damn American rock musicians since the 1970s.
The Doobie Brothers announce their first ever full-album performances, on two historic nights in New York City at The Beacon Theatre, November 15 and 16, 2018. The band will perform Toulouse Street plus select hits on Thursday, November 15, and The Captain and Me plus select hits on Friday, November 16. This is definitive Doobies at their most powerful, and fans will delight in hearing the deep cuts, some of which the band has never played live in concert.
