Comment: I remember the second time I saw Toto on the Toto IV tour at the Universal Ampatheater in Los Angeles. Me and three buddies drove 100 miles to catch the show. Bobby had a damaged leg and was behind a keyboard, and the show was awesome!

And then there was the encore - a song not on any of the albums called "Runaway" (or maybe not - no one ever said). But the big surprise was Jeff. Lenny Castro sat behind Jeff's kit and a second, smaller one was built on the floor in front of it. It was as if someone had sawed off the bottom 2 feet of a drum kit and stuck it on the floor.

Jeff came out and sat on the floor behind this miniature kit, smacked the bass drum a couple of times with his foot (while Steve P leaned against a floor amp smoking a cig) and proceeded to rock out the joint.

It's been more than 20 years and I can still picture his face behind that drum kit.

Comment: Jeff was a unique talent. Not as flashy or dynamic as Simon, but the coolest drummer of them all. A tragedy for us fans, and of course more so for his family and fellow band members that he was lost to us all so early. I can't believe almost 14 years have passed. I also can't think of anyone better to have replaced him.

Sadly missed.

Comment: I never heard TOTO with Jeff P, but his playing on the records, the TOTO LIVE IN PARIS-show and the Starlick session gives me endless inspiration in evolving my own playing. As a drummer I dig his uniqe groove - I wish we still could have him among us, to give us much more shuffle, swing, groove, stright, rock'n'pop'n'reggae'n'jazz - The LOT! Miss U man!

Comment: conocí a Jeff cuando ya no estaba entre nosotros, ahora soy baterista. El próximo sábado cumpliré mi sueño de ver a Toto en directo, en Londres, desgraciadamente en el escenario habrá alguien a quien no podré ver, pero seguro estara.

Comment: Hi there,

with pride and joy I can say that in 1987 I was one of a handfull of fans at the backdoor outside of the Jahrhunderthalle in Frankfurt Germany who had the pleasure to meet the TOTO guys there for some words, pics and autographs. I still do remember well the friendly atmosphaere (after an exhausting show played) that moment and I have a photograph having Jeff straight smiling into my camera while signing my LP cover... whenever I read the name of JP I get reminded to this special moment and it makes me sad...
As I am drummer I always liked the way he played, he sounded, he grooved and the way he set-up his drums...

Groove-On, Jeff - wherever you are !

Comment: THE drummer.

I was listening to Georgy Porgy, the other day. Then I went to 99. Then to Jojo (Boz Scaggs). Then to Jamaica (Bobby Caldwell). Then to Stan Getz cd. Then to David Roberts, then to Finis Henderson, then....

That unique "swing"... Ufffff.

Could play anything with anybody. I had the pleasure of doing a Jeff special on my program on the Spanish FM, a few years ago. One of my most exciting shows, and one of my 2-3 favourites too !
