David Paich

We talked shop with David Paich in our recent interview, Destined for Success. In this episode, we’ll devote much of our dialogue to a topic that’s very close to David’s heart… and maybe yours. We’ll be talking about Jeff Porcaro. If there’s anyone who can share wonderful insight on Jeff life, it’s Dave. Join us as Dave and a special guest help us unlock “Jeff” memories that will truly leave you smiling, laughing, and even learning a little more about a man who was “one of the greatest” drummers ever. From high school to Silk Degrees to TOTO, we’ll take you on a journey that will surely take you back to Jeff’s beginnings and end where a legend begins. Our guest once more is David Paich.

There's something you need to know about David Paich. He's busy atttending to business - the business of caring for his family. You see Dave's sister is ill....she waiting in line for an organ transplant in LA while David visits her every day while she's in the ICU unit. Keep him in your thoughts and prayers for his sister....that's why he hasn't travelled with TOTO this past year...even with the debut of their new album Fallin In Between. Food for thought.ec

Hello Gentlemen,

My thanks and compliments for your site and efforts! The Paich podcasts were genius. I loved the Sklar and Ready Freddy casts too.

It is my hope that you will continue the Paich/Porcaro casts. There are a lot of folks who would love to hear more Jeff stories fromPaich and Page. Also, It would be great to hear these guys weigh in on Carlos Vega (just a thought). Thanks again for the site andthe cool interviews.

To have an opportunity to chat with a founding member of my favorite band was a thrill in itself, but it was the amazing stories of his early years in the music business, along with a candid discussion about drummer Jeff Porcaro, that made this particular podcast interview a highlight for me. It has also been the most downloaded episode on Inside MusiCast. Thanks David!

Thanks, Rick and Eddie, for using the latest technology - podcasting - to bring us closer to some of the most influential artists in music. As a loyal follower of Toto since 1978, I was happy to hear a podcast interview with one of its founding members. Audiences miss David Paich on the current Falling In Between tour, and to hear him speak candidly of Jeff Porcaro was truly "legendary."

Hi GuysJust discovered your site -awesome! Was lucky enough to see Jeff Porcaro a couple of times and the stories from Paich were priceless. There's years of material out there - how about Landau, Kimball, Champlin, Graydon, Carlton, Lukather etc etc. Keep up the great work and thanks for doing such good work!Cheers

George, I think we're on the same frequency, my friend. We're working on the list and we're having surprisingly good success getting those type of talents on Inside MusiCast. Thanks for your comments. Hope you like our other interviews, too. They are so different, but all of our guests the best at what they do. Check them out and post your comments.ec

Hi Eddy and Rick

Thanks for responding to my comments on the David Paich interview. I'm in Edinburgh - quite a way from the US, but have been a big fan of the 'session' scene for a long time. Here, unfortunately, it's not too often we get the chance to see any of these guys doing their thing live, but I've manage to catch up with a quite few. Also, I've seen Toto quite a few times and had the privelige of witnessing Jeff live - twice. He was just the best - full stop. Apart from Simon, also saw Gregg Bissonette and Lenny Castro play drums with the band. (Lenny and Jeff swapped places for one of the encores in London on the Toto 4 tour - they rocked! Tim Schmitt sang backing vocals that night too)

The Paich interviews were a revelation and I'm sure you could do many more with him and not let it get boring.

Thank you so much for what you are doing and I look forward to listening to David Pack and whoever else you guys manage to pin down!

Best of luck for the future.

Just wanted to say thank you for the Paiche interviews, because of these two interviews, I've been catching up on the podcasts ever since. I've been a Toto fan for 17 years now and really enjoyed hearing some of the stories that David had to tell about his own life and Jeff's. Keep up the good work.

Dear Daughters:We're so glad you enjoyed them. I must say that the two Paich interviews were so fun to do. Dave was in the mood to talk and open up with us and share his approach to music and his relationship with Jeff....so cool. I hope you get to catch up with all of the interviews. More to come.
