Default Re: Jeff Porcaro

I was introduced to Porcaro's drumming in 1979 when I bought the first Toto album, a couple years before I started playing drums. The song Hold the Line is one of my favorites, and was sort of a theme song between me and my high school sweetheart at the time. Still love the rockin' groove of that song and many other Toto songs to this day. Other favorites of mine are Roseanna and Africa. I also love the stuff he did with Steely Dan, and Boz's Lido is one of my favorite songs due to the drums.

I bought a recent concert DVD of Toto, but unfortunately it was long after his death, although his brother still plays with the band.
