The members of Toto have had more than their share of ups and downs together over the years, but with a fresh round of tour dates and a new album on the horizon, things are looking up again.
The band recently released ’35th Anniversary Tour: Live from Poland,’ an audiovisual document of an evening from their 2013 world tour — a run of dates that found original members Steve Lukather, David Paich, and Steve Porcaro performing alongside longtime drummer Simon Phillips and vocalist Joseph Williams, who returned to the lineup in 2010 after more than 20 years away. They’ll be back on the road later this summer as part of a package tour with Michael McDonald, and they’re currently wrapping up sessions for their first new album since 2006′s ‘Falling in Between.’
Although the new LP won’t be out until next year, Lukather took a moment to speak with Ultimate Classic Rock about how it came together, what fans can expect to hear when it arrives, and much, much more.
