    The Tragic Real Life Story Of Toto

    Toto may not be the most legendary rock band, but their story is unlike that of any other. They're probably the most technically proficient and certainly one of the most versatile bands to ever form, and that's because the group was formed by a bunch of veteran studio musicians. All told, members Jeff Porcaro, Steve Porcaro, David Paitch, Steve Lukather, and the rest played on thousands of well-known recordings, before they decided to join forces and make their own music. It was a solid career decision — Toto went on to sell millions of records and generate a slew of songs still heard on classic rock and lite FM stations 30-odd years later: the hard-rocking "Hold the Line," the soul-tinged "Georgy Porgy," the oft-covered "Africa," and the shuffling "Rosanna." Thanks to that last one, Toto won Record of the Year at the 1983 Grammy Awards, along with Album of the Year for its fourth album, Toto IV.
