Whatever Happened To… Toto?

Rosanna – Toto (1982)Browse & purchase this album
With apologies to fans of The Wizard of Oz, this band was NOT named after Dorothy’s dog; rather, they’re named after the Latin term for “all-encompassing.” And in 1982-83, they *were* all-encompassing: Not only dominating the charts with their fourth album and its many singles, but also dominating the Grammy Awards with Record & Album of the Year wins. They continued to release albums regularly over the years, even though their US audience faded by the late 80’s. They called it quits in 2008, but they re-formed last year in order to tour internationally for the benefit of member Mike Porcaro, who’s battling ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). Their tour schedule extends through 2011.
