Doobie Brothers Michael Hossack Dead at 65 (Top 12 of March 2012)

12/25/2012
.
Doobie Brothers Michael Hossack Dead at 65 was a top 12 rock story of March 2012: Sad news from the Doobie Brothers as their longtime drummer Michael Hossack died Monday at his home in Dubois, Wyoming after a long battle with cancer. He was 65.

The band issued the following: His family was by his side. Our thoughts and condolences go out to his family and loved ones. We will miss him greatly.

"Mike was a one-of-a kind guy and a long-time member of the Doobie Brothers. He was a fighter and fought the big battle with cancer and he was a close personal friend of mine and I speak for Mike's family and the entire band when I say he will be greatly missed." -Bruce Cohn (Manager)

"Mike has always been a part of my musical life and the life of the Doobie Brothers; from our earliest singles, like 'China Grove' and 'Blackwater' to our most recent single 'Brighter Day. He was an incredible musician, a studio quality drummer. The last few years, he was brave and determined to keep on playing in the face of ill health, and I will always admire him for that. He was a terrific dad and family man, and we will all miss him." -Tom Johnston (Vocals/Guitars)

"When my kids were little, they used to call him 'Big Mike,' because to them he was such a big guy. But to me and those who knew him, he had an even a bigger heart. We were friends for 43 years and we shared some wonderful adventures together, times I will never forget. Thanks for all those wonderful memories Mike, and all the great music. We love you." -Patrick Simmons (Vocals/Guitars)
