For this weeks #TBT post, we bright back this gem from the Musicians Institute vault, a special clinic from Jeff Porcaro, one of the most revered drummers in modern music. MI is lucky to have this footage, as his life was tragically cut short when he was only 38 years old in 1992. Porcaro is perhaps most widely known as the drummer for legendary rock band Toto, and is also widely considered to be one of the most recorded studio musicians in history, working on hundreds of albums and in thousands of sessions.
Along with playing with Toto and being the drumming on Steely Dan’s album, Katie Lied, Porcaro worked with an epic list of artists, including Boz Scaggs, Paul McCartney, Dire Straits, Pink Floyd, Michael Jackson, Stan Getz, Sérgio Mendes, Lee Ritenour, Christopher Cross, Barbra Streisand, Donna Summer, Diana Ross, Eric Clapton, Miles Davis, Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, Michael McDonald, David Gilmour and many more.
