    In an interview with Eddie Van Halen (1993) Steve Lukather recalled the emotion of his first acquaintance with the music of The Beatles.

I remember George Harrison played a solo in I saw her standing there and just the sound of the guitar bending and the reverb struck a nerve inside of me." After the death of George Harrison Luke stated: "I am VERY sad as George was a friend and the reason I play the guitar! I have a picture of us playing together in my office at Jeff Porcaro's tribute concert many years ago. He was a GREAT man and a gentle wonderful soul. He will be missed."

    - By Arend, Sep 14, 2001 12:00 AM
    On September 14th the members and management of Toto came out with a statement for their fans on toto99.com: "As of today, we are planning on doing the shows this weekend but it has been very difficult here. Everyone is very somber and heavy of heart. We hope that people will come out to the shows and gather together rather than stay at home watching the grim news on television. Everyone here is devastated, sad and angry and wondering what will happen in the future. Our country has not seen aggressive attacks on our own soil in many years and now we are suffering the hand of a faceless enemy. Thousands of innocent lives have ended. We are thankful for the love and support from our European brothers and many others around the world. The basic feeling here is that we cannot allow terrorists to ruin our lives and keep us from living normally. Therefore, although difficult, we will play our shows this weekend and try to spread a bit of cheer to an extremely saddened community."
