New fave Jeff track: 'When I loose my way' -Randy Craford, Secret Combination. Amazing slow shuffle and lovely hat/snare work.

Check out "Bottom Line" from Nightline (1982)

Superb straightgroove, with a classic Porcaro samba style ending!

I had the distinct pleasure and also misfortune to have played drums with Jeff in high school in Los Angeles. I say misfortune because he got me booted from a couple of the bands I was playing in when it became apparent that he was far more talented than I.

We played often in his father's garage which had been set up as a studio. At one point I had made recordings of the band on my Teac R-R but have lost these over the years.

I know he is most well known for impeccable session work and groove but back in the the early days he showed amazing chops and was quite a bit wilder and less inhibited than session work demands.

I especially remember the band doing Take Me to the Pilot to which Jeff added bass drum triplets similar to Bonham on Good Times.

Porcaro is one of my all-time favorite drummers. Immense groove and he used his chops to enhance the musicality of the songs. Miss him.

I'm a guitarist but to me Jeff Porcaro is one of the finest drummers but more importantly musicians ever. He had an incredibly unique feel and groove and so importantly he played for the song. Listening to Jeff is something akin to a religious experience for me. I was listening to Dire Straits "On every Street" CD today and i'm not ashamed to say Jeff's incredible talent moved me to tears.

Your not the first non-drummer I've heard say that Jeff is their favourite MUSICIAN, not just drummer :)

Been listening to close to all of TOTO`s albums lately and it strikes me how important it is to make the young drummers of today aware of Jeff Porcaro and his incredibly deeply felt pocket and feel, before they get sucked into the world of Joey Jordison and Travis Barker. No offence. Jeff was the ultimate drummer. A true cat with a deeelish groove.

Here`s to you Jeff.

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.

Hey Guys, It's always nice to see compliments on Jeff Pocaro.
'when i need you' Leo Sayer.. At first listen. you could be foregiven for falling alseep. But try playing it with a band, It's a serious drum track.

2nd 'New york minute' Don Henley. Don goes and hires Jeff to lay the drum track. another great drum track.

3rd 'Randy Crawford' Rio de Janeiro blues' The classic Jeff kicking a track along, giving the song lift and the vocalist goose bumps.
I loved the guy so god dam much, That i even named my eldest boy after the man.

This man is one of the greatest drummers ever! He is in my top 5 that as soon as I hear him play a note, and it can be on anything, I'll want to jump behind my kit and start playing. Because Jeff Porcaro was a main commoditity in the drumming world, his discography is amazing. From playing with Toto to Boz Scaggs, Steely Dan to Michael McDonald, even David Benoit. The list keeps going. An amazing drummer who went before his time. And as I write this, I still can belive it will be 20 years since he passed away. I truly miss Jeff and there needs to be memorial concert done for him, to celebrate his drumming and his music! If we can do one every year for Buddy Rich, why not for the studio great, the master of the groove, Jeff Porcaro. How proud Jeff would be if we were to do something for him like that.

Default Re: Jeff Porcaro

As a guitarist, I never really paid attention to Jeff Porcaros drumming. Some of the bands I was in covered, or attempted to cover Steely Dan, Toto and other things and the drummers just seemed off and we just didn't sound right.

Over the years, there were songs that I liked, and when I reviewed the liner notes, I see Jeff Porcaro everywhere. There was something about the songs on which he played. Lido Shuffle, Lowdown, I Keep Forgettin', The Girl is Mine, Beat It, Human Nature. Just to name a few that just resonated with me. I couldn't explain it. I just knew that there was something special about it.

One of my favorites is It's a Feeling by Toto. The beat is very subdued with great hi hat work. Then the part near the end when it sounds like he was going to explode with a thunderous roll, he's riding the bell hard for a couple of measures then he pulls it back in. Then there's Takin' It Back. I can go on, song after song where he does that one thing or two; an accent here, an open hi hat there, that just blows my mind. He played with class, great feel and pocket presence (football term.) I then realized that it was the little things and subtlety that mattered.He changed everything about me, musically. I calmed down, focused more on groove.

I didn't understand the significance of his passing, as I just started playing guitar when it happened. Now, I feel his death with each song I discovered he played on. I can only imagine the songs he would have made better had he still lived.

Because of him, what I couldn't figure out as a guitarist, I figured it out as a drummer. Because of Jeff Porcaro, I switched instruments. For that, I am eternally grateful.

nice post

Jeff was very special
he had the gift of sounding absolutely perfect

I was lucky enough to study with his dad for a couple years in the late 90s and as you can imagine he loved telling stories about his son Jeff...and I absolutely loved listening

so inspiring

if you have not already check out his playing on Steely Dans "Your Gold Teeth II" ...throw it on

brilliant

we miss you Jeff

Haven't listened to that album in a long time. You're right. Absolutely brilliant! Also, just discovered he did "The Spy Who Loved Me" by Carly Simon. I love that playing along to that one.

One of my favourite drummers. Played with so many artists, and always added a unique touch to everything he played. One of a kind, and deeply missed by so many, 20 years after his untimely death.

I have a Jeff question for you all - I've come across an album that Jeff played on, Brasiliero by Sergio Mendes, yet I'm curious to find out what specific tracks he played on - does anyone here know what tracks he played on?

This is sort of an odd question, but maybe others would like to know as well.

I'm in the market for a new pair of headphones and I was wondering if anyone knew what kind Jeff used in the studio? Specifically, these ones:

try posting this on the gear section or the general section (or both). a headphone expert may indeed know, but in this section...only a Jeff Porcaro fan would look here....and they may not know.

i'd title the post What Kind Of Headphones Are These ? -or- What Headphones Is Jeff Porcaro Using Here ?

The headphones in that pic are AKG ones. Could be K240, they were the most common.
Don't think Jeff only used only one model/ brand, though.

Well I'm not sure why anyone would think I made that story up about Manu at the drummers day and the fact he played on Heavy Fuel (then again I was wrong about the rest being all Jeff..!).. anyway, here's a pretty definitive answer:

Not only was he a "less is more" guy, playing-wise, he was apparently in the gear department too. He didn't bring 50 snare drums to every session or anything like that. He used one kit and maybe a primary and a piccolo and one set of cymbals. People hired him to sound like HIM. Truly amazing cat. Watching him and JR, make me want to switch back to matched grip... almost. ;)

I remember when Jeff died. I was really bummed. I was just getting serious and getting into "good" drummers, not the hack "rock star" guys but the cats who replaced them in the studio. Huge loss, truly.

I really wish people would stop making instructional videos on "how to play the Rosanna shuffle". He, himself, did that in his own instructional video, so I really don't see the point in some guy on "Expert Village" or even Bissonette on the Drum Channel doing it. NOBODY can make it sound correct and groove like he did.

I totally agree. However, my understanding was that it was a combination of a pesticide he was using in his garden with cocaine in his system. From what I know from people who know him, he was not an "excess" guy, like so many others we could name. He just got really, really unlucky one day. Probably should have hired a gardener, too. :(
