Steve Lukather comments on the first Toto 2010 show
Toto who recently started a reunion tour in Europe, although only as a tribute to Toto bandmate, Mike Pocaro who is living with ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease).
The line-up will include David Paich, Steve Lukather, Steve Porcaro, Simon Phillips, Joseph Williams and special guest, Nathan East.
On the opening night of the tour, Luke had this to say:
Lukather: "Had a fun fist show in Neu-Isenburg in Germany, despite some tech bummers (guitar went out of tune and broke at one point, and other small shit) but the crowd was great and with us 100%/. Our first REAL run thru of the set and even if it was loose a bit, I still feel good about it. At least I get 2 hours off of pain in my life. Thank GOD for music and being out here with my high school buds and my new friends."
