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 !

Comment: Quando suonava sembrava che danzasse...
Si vedeva e si sentiva che suonava soprattutto col cuore.

Che il groove sia sempre con te ovunque tu sia.

Comment: Jeff's playing is all over my CD collection. So many artists and fans have been fortunate to feel his artistry and energy through song.

Jeff taught me more than anything how to play to the song. He always knew how to fill up space when needed and when to lock in the groove and let the backbeat shine.

To anyone who studies the world of songwriting, recording & performing... Mr. Porcaro is the finest example of what to aspire to.

You will never be forgotten.

Always a fan,
Matthew Shad

Country: Stockholm, Sweden
Comment: A friend of mine was fortunate to watch Jeff during a studio session in L.A. He played a fast latin feel pattern and lost one of the sticks in a middle of a take, but he did not lose the groove and the take was kept in the mix. Episodes like that make legends and Jeff is definitely a drum legend, one of the greatest of all times.
