A few weeks later, they performed at the first great rock music festival Monterey Pop Festival in June 1967

As previously reported,, McDonald recently released his appropriately titled new album, 50. McDonald first started working on the new batch of songs, which features The Tubes’ Prairie Prince and members of his band, in 2015. They returned to the studio 25 times to perfect the material. - Jambands.com
