Comment: In my opinion, Jeff was the "drummer" in the 1980's. He was definitly an influence on my career as a pro drummer and I learned a lot by just listening to him play. He and his music are missed.

Comment: I STARTED DRUMMING IN THE LATE SEVENTIES AND WHEN I HEARD THE BAND TOTO FOR THE FIRST TIME I WAS HOOKED.I MUST SAY I REALLY ENJOY THE MUSIC AND IT WAS JEFF THAT INSPIRED ME TO CARRY ON AND I AM A DRUMMER IN A BLUES-ROCK BAND HERE IN CAPE TOWN, CALLED BOULEVARD BLUES BAND. I NOW OWN EVERY CD THAT WAS EVER RELEASED BY THE BAND. SIMON YOU'RE DOING A GREAT JOB BUT IT MUST BE VERY HARD TO MATCH THE QUALITY AND PRECISION OF JEFF.YOU ARE GREATLY MISSED JEFF.

Comment: Desde españa todos estaremos siempre contigo Jeff, incluso gente que no es seguidora fiel como yo de este tremendo grupo, ha oído hablar de ti y seguirá oyendo de uno de los mejores baterias. Desde España y con 16 años, te apoyan, Jeff, descansa en paz : )

Comment: Jeff Porcaro could do all styles. Explosive, methodical, systematic, awesome. You name it, that was him. From the time he did the drumworks for Boz Scaggs' "Lowdown" & " Lido Shuffle", that was it for me. I had to, at the very least, improve my own mediocre drum playing....with relative success. Women notwithstanding, those were the greatest years of our so-called "garage" band, specially with our own version of "I'll Supply the Love." Got a real kick doin' the drumworks for that song. GOD bless you always, Jeff. Your signature beat lives on, specially here in a sunny country like ours, the Philippines. Hey gotta go. Gotta download "Pamela" on my iPod.

Comment: One of my most amazing Jeff moments was during the 1992 NAMM show. Toto played at one of the company parties I think it was Remo. Being a student of Joe Porcaro I got to be back stage security for that evening. Toto came on and did "Jake to the bone". This was before the album "Kingdom of Desire" was out yet. Watching along with me from behind Jeff was,Gregg Bissonette, Shelia E, Ginger Baker, Carmine Appice,Troy Luccetta. All of us were just blown away at the way Jeff would just lay it in there. It was magic. Plus for working the event I received a Remo snare drum..

Comment: I remember the first time I heard JEFF play but what really puzzled me was that I did not know GOD played drums.It was TOTO IV that started the obsession. The most amazing groove I have ever heard. I have learnt, note for note all his drumming parts of all the TOTO albums. I feel his spirit with me every time I play. I love you JEFF, wish you were here so I could say thanks for your continuing inspiration.

Comment: As I drummer myself, I know first hand how incredible Jeff was. God knows I tried playing some of the stuff he did. Saw Jeff only once, August 1976 with the rest of Toto who were playing with Boz Scaggs atthe time. Foxboro Stadium, what a show. Boz, Fleetwood Mac, Joe Walsh and then the Eagles!! I think I enjoyed Boz the most. God Bless you Jeff, you'll live on forever in our hearts. Your hometown state of Connecticut especially.

Comment: Hi,
I'm Fabien, from Belgium. I remember the first time I ear Jeff... It's on "Rosana", I was 15 years old, I begining playing bass at this time! and I play drums from some years. And when I ear Jeff, I say:"Woah.. ! It's impossible to play this on drums !" Well today, so many drummer can play all the pattern of Jeff, but he was really the only one best grooveman I never ear today.
Good Road Jeff, and see you next time on the groove's paradise.
Bye bye,
Fab.
