Doobie Brothers - Tributes Flood In For Doobie Brothers Drummer Mike Hossack

Mike Hossack, former drummer of the legendary group the Doobie Brothers, has died aged 65. Hossack joined the group in 1971 and played for four years during their initial heyday in the early-to-mid 70s, leaving in 1975. He returned in 1987 as the band's comeback drew a huge response, and drummed with them right up until 2010 when he developed cancer, and unfortunately it was this ailment which has sadly led to his demise.
Former Doobie Brothers members were quick to pay tribute to Hossack, reports Reuters, whilst his manager Bruce Cohn commented, "Mike was a one-of-a kind guy and a longtime member of the Doobie Brothers, he was a fighter and fought the big battle with cancer and I speak for Mike's family and the entire band when I say he will be greatly missed."
