John McFee (2010)

Biography

American singer, songwriter, guitarist, record producer, and multi-instrumentalist, and long-time member of The Doobie Brothers.

Some of McFee's early and non-Doobie Brothers work includes playing pedal steel guitar on Van Morrison's Tupelo Honey and Saint Dominic's Preview albums, and recording with many other artists, including Steve Miller on his Fly Like An Eagle album and the Grateful Dead on their From the Mars Hotel album.

McFee played for a number of years with Huey Lewis in the group Clover and also played on Huey Lewis and the News' Sports and Hard at Play albums. McFee also played with Glen Campbell, for his Meet Glen Campbell live video performance.

McFee has played on a number of Elvis Costello's albums, beginning with all the lead and pedal steel guitar work on My Aim is True; he played lead guitar on "Alison". He has also continued to perform live with Costello periodically through the years.

In early 1979, McFee joined the Doobie Brothers, replacing departing guitarist Jeff Baxter. After the Doobie Brothers disbanded in late 1982, McFee and drummer Keith Knudsen formed the country-rock group Southern Pacific, which also included ex-Creedence Clearwater Revival bassist Stu Cook and former Pablo Cruise vocalist David Jenkins. By 1993, Southern Pacific had disbanded and McFee and Knudsen had rejoined the Doobie Brothers.
