Who was Jeff Porcaro? You may not have known him by name but you have heard him play on many different songs including Michael Jackson’s “Beat It”, Boz Scaggs “Lido Shuffle”, Toto’s “Africa” and Lionel Richie’s “Running With The Night” to name just a handful. He has also contributed to songs by Steely Dan, Dire Straits, Jackson Browne, Madonna, Leo Sayer, Elton John, Bruce Springsteen and also regrettably, the music tragedy that is….Michael Bolton, Whilst he was a permanent fixture in Toto, he was also a much sought after session and studio drummer. Sadly, Jeff died too young but he had an awesome resume that is the feature of this podcast of our recent special covering a marvellous and diverse catalogue of one mans career.
