Prick Tunes: Toto "Hold the Line"
*Jeff Porcaro was the preeminent American studio session drummer from the mid-1970s up until his death in 1992. He was the drummer on the albums Thriller, Pretzel Logic (Steely Dan), The End of the Innocence, Like a Prayer, and Beauty on a Back Street (Hall and Oates) to name but a few. Steve Porcaro is actually still having his work heard as he scores the badass Timothy Olyphant star-vehicle Justified. Mike Porcaro joined the band in 1982 and served as its bassist up until 2007, when he left the band stemming from hand numbness that was later revealed to be symptoms of ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease).
What really matters here, though, is this song off of their self-titled debut album. "Hold the Line" everybody.
