On October 1st 2014 MixOnLine.com published a great article by Robyn Flans about the golden years of the L.A. session scene. Flans was supported by David Foster, Bob Glaub, Dean Parks, Jim Keltner, John Robinson and Steve Lukather to make this a memorable story.
It was a warm, touching and huge night on August 7th for Toto playing at the quintessential venue in Los Angeles, the music capital of the World, the Greek Theatre. It seemed more like a family reunion than anything else. One of the first people I saw was Joe Porcaro as he walked in with another percussionist, Emil Richards. Porcaro, father of Jeff, Steve and Mike, all with Toto at one point told me "It's great to be here. I am excited and we get to see Michael McDonald too! I asked him if he'd seen Shannon Forrest yet and he said "I've known about him and followed him for years. He really is great!" As we spoke Porcaro family members walked by left and right. Part 1 shows the review of the Greek concert, part 2 the interview Reggie did with drummer Shannon Forest.
