Minute by Minute is the eighth studio album by American rock band The Doobie Brothers. The album was released on December 1, 1978, by Warner Bros. Records. The album contains their biggest hit, the Grammy-winning "What a Fool Believes," which was written by Michael McDonald with Kenny Loggins and simultaneously released on the latter's 1978 album Nightwatch. "Depending on You" and the title track were also released as singles. The album would be the last to include members Jeff "Skunk" Baxter and John Hartman. It is also the most-honored Doobie Brothers album, having won four Grammys at the 22nd Grammy Awards, more than any other album.

#TBT to my visit to Seattle in the summer and to the legendary Reciprocal Studios, in its heyday operated by Jack Endino and Chris Hanszek, and associated to some of the most influential independent labels of the time, such as C/Z Records, Sub Pop, Amphetamine Reptile, and Twin Tone.
The studio is the site of the first Nirvana demo session on January 23, 1988. Jack Endino recorded ten songs with the band, and afterwards sent a copy of the demo tape to Sub Pop. Nirvana re-entered the studio a few months later to record Bleach. Other notable albums recorded here include Mudhoney’s “Superfuzz Bigmuff” and “Mudhoney”, TAD’s “God’s Balls”, Green River’s “Dry as a Bone”, Soundgarden’s “Screaming Life”, and Babes in Toyland’s “Spanking Machine”. Since Reciprocal closed in 1991, the Ballard building has housed a string of other recording studios. Here it is worth mentioning that in 2000, Chris Walla of Death Cab For Cutie renamed the studio Hall Of Justice Recording, and recorded both his own and other bands until 2004. Afterwards, in 2008, the Fleet Foxes took over the lease, renamed it back to Reciprocal, and recorded here part of their album Helplessness Blues. In 2010, Walla once again took over, renovated both building and studio, and re-opened Hall Of Justice in 2011, under which name it still operates today.

This song was written about Amy Zaret, who worked at Warner Brothers Records and died of cancer in October 2015 (Hit the link in bio for more info). Cancer doesn’t have any unique symptoms, and some types are asymptomatic.
Interpretation is that just because a person is dead, does not mean that is no longer among us.
Another interpretation might be that just because you can’t see your friend’s troubles (like Chester) doesn’t mean the pain isn’t there. So do well to be there for a friend even when the symptoms aren’t glaring.
This could also be a callback to the ideas in the chorus, which emphasize the importance of everyone in the world no matter how small they may seem. #linkinpark
