Comment: I shared Jeff's birthday, only he was 4 years older, and he was the drummer I would have aspired to be had I been male and a drummer. Instead, I liked to think I was the female, vocal version of what he was. And I miss him.

Comment: Sei stato il mio maestro "virtuale" per moltissimi anni, e non posso fare a meno di dire che nessun altro al mondo, sarà capace di suonare come te! Finchè vivrò, sarai sempre nei miei pensieri e nei miei ricordi!

Comment: When I heard about Jeff´s death I could not believe that. At this moment I am realizing that he died at the age I have now. He was very young, and ver talented.

He is one of the drum player of all times....what a feeling! what a pleasure playing the drums! he is the hi-hat master!

Miss you, Jeff Porcaro, but always you are present in my house because of your talent in Toto.

My respects to the rest of the Porcaro family: Steve,Mike, Joe...God bless!

Comment: From Boz Scaggs to Steely Dan to Toto, there is no mistaking the excellent groove and immaculate timing of Jeff Porcaro. In a word, it's timeless! Jeff will always be one of the biggest influences in my drumming style and consciousness. I always warm up with the "Rosanna" groove, and I know Jeff is leading a band of angels in heaven.

Rest In Peace.

Your groove might keep is effective in my mind.
You are not and it is lonely.

Comment: Du warst für mich einer grossen Drummer auf dieser Welt. Dein Groove, deine Dynamik wird mir unvergesslich bleiben.
Jedesmal wenn ich die alten Hits wie 99,Rosanne oder Hold the Line höre, sehe ich dich an deinem Pearl Set sitzen.
Jeff du wirst mir immer in erinnerung bleiben.

Name: Myriam
Country: Leaving London
Comment: Dear Jeff

In November 2004, I cried to you: "Take me out of London". And YOU DID IT! Tomorrow I am leaving this ugliness, this horrible place. I am going home, home to a beautiful city built on the prophecy of a princess. This seems unreal as I am typing these words. You are still a miracle-maker, you the unseen genius. The world cannot understand what I am saying. Only I know. YOU DID IT! YOU DID IT! Tomorrow I will have the "world at my feet": the city that made Mozart happy, that recognized his genius. You are so powerful, you are a god now. Thank you for taking me out of here and bringing me back to my heart.

You were always elegant, stylish: the Porcaro Family is a House of Style anyway. Something Italian that comes up even after generations in America.

Thank you, genius. It is really happening. The world at my feet.

Comment: Jeff was my husband's (Doug Brown) drumming hero and now, I'm sure he is comparing notes with him in Heaven. Jeff's my hero too and I am so glad that you have this up in his memory. I have always said that almost any song that I have ever liked listening too has ended up with him on drums and was because he was on drums. He just had the groove, the taste, and the feel that no one else did or will. Thanks for the musical gifts!

Comment: Looking through the messages I'm reminded even more of the sheer brilliance of the great man. Rosanna and that feel, its something you can't learn, the sitting in the pocket until he just comes out of nowhere and smacks you in the chops! And as for the song Never Enough from the Kingdom of Desire Album, I've got a 4 year old son who sings along to that with me full on, flat out, he loves the song because of the drums, it transcends generations, thanks Jeff, thanks Toto.

Comment: hey! we are Toto Fans from more than twenty years. I am Fochi, from spain, and I met Toto thanks to my brother, who made me to listen to one "weird" disc more than ten years ago: the album was Hydra. From that, I have listened to Toto´s all albums.

We have bought our tickets for the concert in Madrid, and weare so excited about that, because it is the first Toto concert in Spain!

We will meet you in La Riviera: me, my brother and my girlfriend, who has started to listen your albums... and she loves too!

I think that Simon Philips was the best choice to take the place that Jeff left. He is an excellent drummer and he can perform all the Toto´s themes as goos as the best. But Jeff Porcaro was a legend, and nobody can deny that. we all miss you, Jeff.

My brother Paco says that you are incredible, and Greg Phillinganes is one of the best choices that you should have take to improve your fantasic band.

Best regard for all of you and all the Toto Fans!

PD: Do not be afraid when you come to Madrid, we are not "at war", we are only "repairing" and "improving" the city... our Major is like a "mole" that digs our city without any mercy.....

PDPD: we have one of the best beers of the world... you have lost so many years not coming to Spain....!

Comment: no hay baterista que se le compare
sigo a toto desde que tengo como 20 años y no he visto competencia para el
sin duda es uno de los bateristas mas talentosos que he visto.
desde que supe de la muerte de jeff me dije a quien pondran en reemplazo
simmon lo hace super, pero como dije es insuperable
personalmente lo hecho demenos en la banda con su sello en la bateria
we always miss you
