Comment: It's 14 years to the day. It's noon in Norway, and my day is filled with Jeff- grooves. I started of with Mushanga. It's full of you, Jeff. I miss you.

Comment: I have fond memories of running into both Jeff Porcaro and Steve Lukather a LOT while I was attending Musician's Institute out in Hollwood, CA. Whether it was at the school itself, on the boulevard, or performing at a nearby club (I have great memories of Jeff playing with Larry Carlton), I was a HUGE Toto fan (still am! and Turn Back has always been my fave! But I love the new album! And Live album!). I just tried to 'paste' a pic of me and Jeff that a buddy of his took of us right on Hollywood Boulevard right outside of MI in 1985. Jeff was SOOO nice and SOOO funny and I remember as if it were yesterday! I was 19 years old and a little star struck! I said 'Hey, Jeff Porcaro!" he smiled and even stopped to talk to me! I said I was a HUGE fan and I just happened to have my camera and could I take a picture? He said "Sure! Hey, this is Hollywood, right?" and he laughed. Not only did he let me take a picture but he asked his buddy to take a picture of us both. He was just about to have a smoke and you can see his unlit cig in his hand. Unfortunately, I couldn't paste it here. But if you log onto my website- www.jamiebarrett.com- and click on photos, you will see the picture I am talking about! It's a classic! Since Jeff's death, I have always been meaning to share this photo with Toto (esp. Jeff's brothers Steve and Mike) and the fans! I finally have! Thanks! I just wanted to relay what a warm guy Jeff was to me, a fan, that day and how happy he made me that day! It really is the little things...

Comment: JEFF PORCARO - técnico, simples, sensível, muito punch,e feeling, enfim, umas mistura de característas que davam total identidade ao TOTO. Repetia constantemente virada, o que fazia sua música ficar ainda mais interessante. Um americano de coração afro, com ritmos gêniais.

Comment: Hi There, Well I can truly confirm that Jeff Porcaro was the master of the groove. I Bought Some years ago the CD "The Essential Toto" and "Past to Present" And in such songs as Make Believe, Africa, Hold the Line, Rosanna, 99, Pamela, etc. and much more I can still feel alive the presence of Jeff.
His Spirit when he played percussion and drums is still remaning in a lot of hearts of all the world.

I Will always remember Jeff as the Drummer that Gave Magic to Toto.

God Bless America & Simon Phillips -You are very cool, but Please don't try to be like Jeff...He is the only one..-

Thanks

Comment: Jeff Porcaro no podrá ser igualado nunca, su forma de tocar era única. Desde la primera vez que vi el PAST TO PRESENT me di cuenta que era un baterista con un estilo muy auténtico, como que nadie en la banda podia tomar su lugar. Nadie podrá igualar a Jeff Porcaro... Porque el era ÚNICO.

Comment: My drum instructor of many years had me playing to the music of Toto during a session one day (I had no idea who Toto was at the time)and I couldn't help but ask... "Man, these are great tunes we've been working on, who are the artists? He replied "Toto". From that moment I had set out to buy every Toto Album out there. From my listenings I was overwhelmed! What a great band with such great musicianship, and man oh man...what a drummer! Jeff, I salute you. I salute you for all you have done and for all your work will do for others, for I feel it is timeless and will forever be respected. I only wish I can be half the drummer you are someday. God Bless you and your legacy. John Signorella, Age 28 NJ U.S.A.
