Sphincter ... I think that's his name. You know, the Doobie Brothers' current bass player. Anyway, I don't want to talk about him, I want to talk about John McPhee, their lead guitarist. It's just that the topic is "Bassists" and I needed something to draw you in here. OK, this McPhee guy. I can't stand him. His dorky moves and posturing drive me nuts. And he ain't no Jeff Baxter, neither. And who else agrees with me that Michael McDonald was the beginning of the end for the Doobies? And whatever happened to Tiran Porter? OK, that'll do it for now.
