HEAVY BIRTHDAYS

Happy 77th  
Robert Troy "Bobby" Kimball (TOTO singer) - March 29th, 1947

The 19 year-old guitarist on the song below was the legendary Steve Lukather and he told BraveWords recently that: “The first hit always has a special memory. David Paich wrote a great song, put us on the map. But we knew what we wanted. We had all been working with other people and making records for other people at that point. I had just started becoming a studio musician, really. I was out with Boz Scaggs for that summer tour, Silk Degrees, one of his biggest tours. Seven nights at the Greek sold out, it was a magical time for me as a young kid at that time to jump in at such a high level. We had already been doing some demos for Toto in January of that year and we went out in the summer with Boz. Jeff (Porcaro; drums) and I were on that tour, and Steve Porcaro (keyboards) was on that tour. We just had the greatest time, and when we got back, Sony offered us a deal. It was Columbia at the time. We didn't really have anything, we were just doing demos, and so David had this trick bag of songs that could go no wrong, so we went in and started cutting. And what you got was the first album. Then we had to figure out how to play it live."
