The Info List - Jeff Porcaro

Jeffrey Thomas Porcaro (April 1, 1954 – August 5, 1992) was an American drummer, songwriter, and record producer. In a career that spanned more than 20 years, Porcaro was best known for his work with the rock band Toto. Porcaro is one of the most recorded session musicians in history,[1] working on hundreds of albums and thousands of sessions.[2] While already an established studio player in the 1970s, he came to prominence in the United States as the drummer on the Steely Dan
Steely Dan
album Katy Lied. AllMusic
has characterized him as "arguably the most highly regarded studio drummer in rock from the mid-'70s to the early '90s", further stating that "It is no exaggeration to say that the sound of mainstream pop/rock drumming in the 1980s was, to a large extent, the sound of Jeff Porcaro."[2] He was posthumously inducted into the Modern Drummer Hall of Fame in 1993.[3]

Biography[edit] Personal life[edit] Jeffrey Thomas Porcaro was born on April 1, 1954, in Hartford, Connecticut, the eldest son of Los Angeles session percussionist Joe Porcaro and his wife, Eileen. His brothers Mike and Steve were also successful studio musicians and members of the band Toto. Porcaro was raised in the San Fernando Valley
San Fernando Valley
area of Los Angeles and attended Ulysses S. Grant High School. On October 22, 1983, Porcaro married Susan Norris, a Los Angeles television broadcaster. Together, they had three sons, Christopher Joseph (1984), Miles Edwin Crawford (1986-2017), and Nico Hendrix (1991). Career[edit] Porcaro began playing drums at the age of seven. Lessons came from his father Joe Porcaro, followed by further studies with Bob Zimmitti and Richie Lepore. When he was seventeen, Porcaro got his first professional gig playing in Sonny & Cher's touring band. He later called Jim Keltner and Jim Gordon his idols at that time.[4] During his 20s, he played on hundreds of albums,[5] including several for Steely Dan. He toured with Boz Scaggs

and David Paich. Jeff Porcaro

is renowned among drummers for the drum pattern he used on the Grammy Award winning Toto song "Rosanna", from the album Toto IV.[6] The drum pattern called the Half-Time Shuffle Groove, was originally created by the legendary drummer Bernard Purdie
Bernard Purdie
who called it the "Purdie Shuffle." Porcaro created his own version of this groove by blending the aforementioned shuffle with the one heard in the Led Zeppelin
Led Zeppelin
song "Fool in the Rain". Porcaro describes this groove in detail on a Star Licks video (now DVD) he created shortly after “Rosanna” became popular. Besides his work with Toto, he was also a highly sought after session musician. He collaborated with many of the biggest names in music, including Boz Scaggs, Paul McCartney, Dire Straits, Donald Fagen, Steely Dan, Rickie Lee Jones, Pink Floyd, Michael Jackson, Al Jarreau, George Benson, Joe Walsh, Joe Cocker, Stan Getz, Sérgio Mendes, Lee Ritenour, Christopher Cross, James Newton Howard, Jim Messina, Barbra Streisand, Donna Summer, Diana Ross, Eric Carmen, Eric Clapton, Miles Davis, Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, Larry Carlton, Michael McDonald, Seals and Crofts, and David Gilmour. Porcaro had contributed drums to four tracks on Michael Jackson's Thriller, as well as played on the Dangerous album hit "Heal the World". He also played on 10cc's ...Meanwhile
(1992). On the 1993 10cc
Alive album, recorded after his death, the band dedicated "The Night That the Stars Didn't Show" to him. Richard Marx

I. Death[edit] Porcaro died on August 5, 1992, at the age of 38. He had fallen ill after spraying insecticide in the yard of his Hidden Hills home and died that evening at Humana Hospital-West Hills. According to one Los Angeles Times report, The Los Angeles County Coroner's office listed the cause of death to be a heart attack from atherosclerosis induced by cocaine use,[8] not from an allergic reaction to the pesticides as presumed immediately after his death and stated by Toto in the band's official history.[9] Porcaro's family, friends, and Toto band members have disputed the assertion that cocaine use contributed to his death, claiming that while he occasionally consumed the drug, he was not a heavy user or addict.[10] In a 2013 interview, Steve Lukather reiterated this belief, blaming Porcaro's death at least partially on a family history of heart problems and denying statements that cocaine had directly played a role:[11]

Steve Lukather: I spoke to him the day he passed... he said, 'yeah, man I'll see you this weekend and we'll have a BBQ at the house and we'll go clean up the yard'... and that's when he got poison on himself and it turns out he had a bad heart anyway. He had two uncles that died when they were 40 years old from heart disease so it was genetic... this whole drug thing that came out, it's so insidious, and I hate the fucking fact cause he was never the bad drug guy... he'd be the guy going "what are you guys doing staying up all night, you idiots"... in the late '70s and early '80s it was crazy man, we're not gonna deny any of it, but by the time he passed it was never, I don't know, people just love to roam the dirty laundry as Henley wrote you know... and you read this shit, that's right there, it's like does anybody ever do homework on these facts... he just had a genetic predisposition... this whole thing with his arms hurting and all this, he was always, 'my arms, my muscles', it wasn't his muscles, it was the fact that the blood was not getting to the extremities, he had hardening of the arteries at 38 years old. Interviewer: How long was he complaining of the pain in the arms? Steve Lukather: Years, it was debilitating to the point where touring became difficult for him.

Porcaro's funeral was held on August 10 in the Forest Lawn – Hollywood Hills Cemetery, where he was buried on the Lincoln Terrace, lot 120.[12] The Jeff Porcaro
Jeff Porcaro
Memorial Fund was established to benefit the music and art departments of Grant High School in Los Angeles, California, where he was a student in the early 1970s. A memorial concert took place at the Universal Amphitheater
Universal Amphitheater
in Los Angeles on December 14, 1992, with an all-star line-up that included George Harrison, Boz Scaggs, Donald Fagen, Don Henley, Michael McDonald, David Crosby, Eddie Van Halen, and the members of Toto. The proceeds of the concert were used to establish an education trust fund for Porcaro's sons. Porcaro's tombstone was inscribed with the following epitaph, comprising lyrics from Kingdom of Desire
Kingdom of Desire
track "Wings of Time": "Our love doesn't end here; it lives forever, on the Wings of Time." Equipment[edit] Porcaro endorsed Pearl drums,[13] pedals, racks and hardware, Paiste cymbals, Remo
drumheads and Regaltip drumsticks. He had his own Regaltip Jeff Porcaro

signature drumsticks, which are still made by the company as of 2018[update]. He used other brands of drums until joining Pearl in 1982, notably Ludwig-Musser, Gretsch, Camco, and Yamaha Drums. Discography[edit] With Toto[edit]
