Comment: Dear Jeffrey,

You're still playing the drums in my mind and on the records.
I was 6 years of age when I played the drums for the first time, and now at the age of 23 I'm a drumteacher for people who also want to play your drum-patterns.
Every day again I'm playing the drums with more and more love,....thanks to you Jeff....
With my special thanks for TOTO and all the people that are responsible for the results and emotions that TOTO brings on to many people, all over the world...

Can't whait to see TOTO on the 9th of march in Rotterdam(Holland)!!!

Every one who also play drum-patterns of Jeffrey Thomas Porcaro and Simon Phillips; let me know, maybe we can learn some things off eachother!!!

Comment: je ne jouerais pas de la même manière si tu n'avais pas exister, ton influence a été prédominante à mes débuts...Toi vivant,tu étais un grand Musicien,ici tu es présent un peu chez tout les drummers qui t'ont écouté, dans chaque coup de baguettes,chaque ghost notes.
Thank you for long long time....

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.
