just in case anybody missed last night’s Johnnie Walker’s Long Player, it featured The Dan & Toto. with added comments from David Hepworth, it focused on Pretzel Logic and I found it to be an interesting sixty mins. it’s on the i-player for the next month, i believe
Mike Porcaro, bass player with Toto, has died. He suffered from ALS (Motor Neurone disease). He was 59. Live, he had been replaced by the likes of Lee Sklar and Nathan East, which shows just how good Mikey was. I have seen him play plenty of times and he is easily my favourite bassist. He was my wife’s favourite musician so, tonight, we have opened a bottle of bubbly and toasted to the fantastic nights, great music and a wonderful smile that we will miss.
