  1. Reggie Boyle about the Toto 40 trips show in Portland and VIP experience in San Diego

    - By Arend, Aug 6, 2018 8:56 AM

    The North American portion of the Toto "40 Trips around the Sun" Tour was just beginning to roll. 40 Trips meant just that. This is the 40th anniversary for Toto. I caught the third show of the Tour in the Rose City, Portland Oregon. The sold out Revolution Hall just barely survived the Toto thunder. The nearly 100 year old venue was rocking from start to finish. This was my first look at Toto with Dominique "Xavier" Taplin (Prince) taking over on keyboards for David Paich.

  2. David Paich not at Toto's planned North American tour

    - By Arend, Jul 23, 2018 1:31 PM

    Toto has announced that David Paich will not be performing on the band’s planned North American tour. The recent European appearances took a toll on his personal well-being, and it is in his best interests to forego the impact the rigorous wear and tear being on the road brings until he is feeling 100 percent. He plans on focusing on his health, and looks forward to returning to the road when ready to do so. 

  3. Luke to Lenny: "We're still here." Reggie Boyle talking with Lenny Castro.

    - By Arend, Jul 14, 2018 8:20 AM

    Lenny Castro is a percussionist extraordinaire. He is a four decade pal of Steve Lukather since Luke's late teens.  Lenny has never recorded a solo project but that isn't true anymore. "Hands of Silk and Stone" is a perfect description of Lenny and the title of his new solo release. Once again Lenny warmly invited me to his Southern California home and we basked in the sunlight under the clear blue skies to talk about his release and among other things Toto.  

  4. Reggie Boyle and CJ Vanston talking about Derek Smalls, Luke and many more...

    - By Arend, May 12, 2018 8:35 AM

    Spinal Tap Bassist Derek Smalls (Harry Shearer) recently released a great CD "Smalls Change". CJ Vanston was Harry's musical partner on this release and Steve Lukather played on it along with a few other Luke music partners. Since CJ is tight with Luke and the Toto cats and was a huge part of the highly successful Toto release "XIV" I thought this would be a great chance to sit and chat with CJ about this fun project and a few other things.

  5. Reggie talking with Gary Ferguson about Luke and many more...

    - By Arend, Mar 13, 2018 1:01 PM

    I recently saw guitar player Albert Lee (Eric Clapton) play an intimate gig in Thousand Oaks, Ca. Playing drums with him was Gary Ferguson. Gary is what you call a true master of his craft. As soon as I saw him with Albert,  I had a flashback of seeing him on the Steve Lukather/Larry Carlton tour. I knew right then and there I had to interview him, as he smoothly backed Albert, memories of his time with Gary Moore & Glenn Hughes also came to mind. Gary kindly worked some time into his schedule and he invited me to his Southern California residence for a laid back,  one on one interview.
