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: I saw Toto on the 19 May in Melbourne - it was awesome Simon Phillips without any doubt is one of the best drummers in the world; but how I wish I could have seen Jeff - just once. Debra

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

Comment: Je te dois tout sur ma soif de percussion , car tu m'as fait decouvrir la joie et la liberté que peuvent apporter la musique dans la vie d'un musicien , dés lors où j'ai écouter "Child's Anthem" tu m'as séduit par ton style et m'as donné envie de devenir batteur , pour moi tu es et restera le meilleur batteur que la terre ait jamais porté , même si tu nous as quitté je suis sûr que tu es toujours aux côtés de steve , bobby , david et tes frères ...
Adieu Jeff et merci

Comment: TOTO came to my home town, Jackson Mississippi, on the heals of their 1st Album. It was a great show, even though it was a very small crowd. Security was minimal, so I worked my way back stage. There he was in all his glory, the legendary Jeff Porcaro. He was wearing a full length white rabbit fur coat and 3" stilted boots. What style! And man...could he paly those drums. He was an extremely talented guy and he is missed.

Comment: JEFF PORCARO = TOTAL GROOVE, ROCKIN' SWINGIN', THUMPIN'...

OK??

Absolute Precision, Steady as a rock, flowing like Mississippi river.

Hear it all on songs like Georgy Porgy, I Keep Forgetting, Black Friday, Your Goild Teeth II, Lido Shuffle, Time Out of Mind, FM, 99, Can You Hear What I'm Saying, Strange Kind of Love...

This is ultimate drumming legacy. Jeff's Legacy.

Comment: just a message to say what a great drummer jeff was,lucky to see Toto once in london i'll never forget it,its a shame that many young and upper coming drummers will never see a true drummer play the jeff did,he made it look so easy,the only bonus is his vidoes.

Comment: When I first saw Jeff he was in the first Toto video way back in 1982 on MTV called Rosanna and he was playing the drums & I was only 7 years old at the timeand now I have the video for Rosanna and I really like the video and I'm a big fan of Toto and they are an awesome band!!!!. It was so very sad that Jeff Porcaro passed away in 1992. He will be missed by his family,all of his friends and fans from all over the world!!!!. He was a very talented musician & person!!!!. He is now up in God's beaufiful Heaven!!!!. Jeff,You're now in a very happy place,you'll always be in our hearts Forever!!!!. God bless you!!!!.
