Default Re: Jeff Porcaro

Hey Crew,

Great topic! Who else to talk about than the Groove Monster himself! In June 2006 I saw Toto just as they were taking off on their latest world tour. Got to talk with Greg P.(keys) and asked him what tune was his favorite when playing with JP. He answered, "I Keep Forgettin'". Of course! I had a drumhead with me in hopes that I could get all the band to sign it. Not only did Greg sign it, he then took it back to the green room for the rest of the band to do their thing, then brought it back to me! Cloud NINE!!!!!!!!!!!

Remember Solid Gold the tv show? I can recall watching Michael McDonald singing(actually lip-synching) and Jeff behind his kit looking hip as ever. Jeff had that aura about him that everyone respected. I wished that I could have met the man. My all-time favorite drummer. Take it easy folks!

Tim
