The Rock Band Toto
Toto is a rock band from Los Angeles, California. The band was formed in 1977 and is currently comprised of eight members, including Steve Lukather, David Paich, Joseph Williams, John Pierce, Robert “Sput” Searight, Dominique “Xavier” Taplin, Warren Ham, and Mike Love. Their music has won many fans over, and their albums are highly regarded. Toto have sold more than 100 million records and continue to release albums every year.
The eighth studio album from Toto was released in 1992. It was the first album that featured guitarist Steve Lukather as lead vocalist. It was also the last recording with drummer Jeff Porcaro, who tragically died during rehearsals for the Kingdom of Desire tour. The band used Bob Clearmountain to mix the album, which was released in 1993. The song “We Believe in Magic” was a top-selling single and was also featured in many movie adaptations.
After the success of the album, Toto took a hiatus from touring. They recorded an album in 1991 entitled Kingdom of Desire. The album was released on Clive Davis’ label in the United States. It sold well and was critically acclaimed. In the United States, Toto released a new album titled Dreams in 1993. They also performed in the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1994. However, their first studio album since their debut was delayed for a year, as they were touring Japan for the Seventh One.
Toto’s fame began to increase after the release of their second album, Fahrenheit. This was their first gold album and a worldwide tour followed. The band split up in 1987 and decided to continue with five members. After the departure of Steve Porcaro, they went on a new world tour. After that, the group chose to stay with five members. Jean-Michael Byron and David Paich joined the group.
In addition to releasing albums, Toto is also touring the world. In late 2015, the band announced a tour. The album, Toto XIV, was released in June, and the group continued touring. While the band has yet to release a new album, the group’s debut was well-received by fans. In addition, the band’s name was derived from the dog in the Wizard of Oz, whose name is Toto.
The band’s lead singer, Fergie Frederiksen, was the first to join the group in 1985. Apparently, she was a difficult co-worker, and the band held an audition for a new lead singer. Eventually, the band chose Joseph Williams, the son of John Williams and Barbara Ruick. As a result, they recorded the album Fahrenheit album without the original lead vocalist. It was their debut as a soloist, and they were very popular among fans of the time.
