David Paich

When David Paich was a kid he didn’t spend much time climbing trees. His time was spent absorbing, learning, and ultimately becoming a product of his environment — the recording studio and performing stage. David’s father, legendary composer and arranger Marty Paich, introduced him early to his world of creating music. David eventually found over the years his phenomenal musical and keyboard skills would allow him to become one of the most sought-after session musicians, producers, composers, and arrangers in the industry. As a founding member of the Grammy Award-winning band TOTO, David has toured the globe performing to a world-wide fan base that literally boggles the mind. His discography, is also quite global — it could wrap around the world a few times. He’s contributed to the works of George Benson, Jackson Browne, Ray Charles, Doobie Brothers, Aretha Franklin, Michael Jackson, Elton John, Quincy Jones, Boz Scaggs, and is still going strong. Inside MusiCast welcomes David Paich.

I just had to say thank you to both you for the last 38 minutes of my life!I now have a permanent grin on my face, after listening to Part 1 of the David Paich podcast. Wow! Can't wait to hear Part 2.

Although my tastes are very varied, my favourite band has always been Toto, and so when my friend mailed me the link to your site, I just had to listen.It's a superb site, and your interviewing techniques are first class. My head was spinning with the names being dropped at regular intervals by Paich!!

I've been a solid Toto admirer since the beginning, and due to seeing them in concert many, many times, have become "friends" with Luke and on nodding terms with the guys (including Paich - when he used to tour, of course!), after each gig.

I will certainly tell my music loving friends about your site, and mark it as a favourite. There really are so many fine artists out there, who I'd love to hear interviewed in a similar way.I'm also a huge Motown fan, and would be fascinated to hear people like one of my heroes, Norman Whitfield, or Motown arranger, Paul Riser, talk one day.

Best wishes to you both, and long may you continue to entertain the music loving public.

Thanks P! We definately are happy that you enjoyed David's interview...and to also know that you have a relationship with the Toto guys. They are surprisingly approachable and remember fans' faces....isn't that true? We think so. David was a pleasure to interview. Thanks again and stay tuned...the best is yet to come.

Hi guys,

I want to thank you for what you do. This has exactly what I have been looking for. I am a huge fan of Jeff Porcaro. To hear David Paich and David Hungate's interview was about as close as any fan can ever get to Jeff.

If you are ever down in Alabama, I'd love to take you guys around Muscle Shoals to Muscle Shoals Sound and to the old South Jackson Highway studio.

Again, thanks for what you do!
