After his stint in King Crimson, McDonald worked as a session musician and later formed a duo with Michael Giles. The duo released an album in 1970 that showed off their vocal skills.

Their debut, In the Court of the Crimson King, was a hit in the US and the UK. Steve Stevens, a US guitarist, ranked it as one of the greatest albums in progressive rock.

His contributions to Foreigner were well-known, with his voice on the group’s biggest hits. The son of the deceased confirmed his death from cancer.
