Michael McDonald and Toto
Michael McDonald and Toto will make the Events Center at Pala Casino Spa & Resort a stop on their 2014 Co-Headline Tour at 6 p.m., Sunday, August 10.
McDonald and the members of Toto are old friends, dating back years prior to the singer’s appearance on Toto’s “I’ll Be Over You,” from the Fahrenheit album in 1986. Toto members Mike Porcaro, Jeff Porcaro and Steve Lukather collaborated with McDonald on his RIAA gold certified solo debut If That’s What It Takes in 1982. The trio all performed on “That’s Why” and “No Such Luck” while Jeff laid down the drums and Luke contributed guitar on “I Keep Forgettin’.” Lukather also played on “I Gotta Try” and “Believe In It.” In 1977, Keyboardist David Paich arranged horns and strings on the Doobie Brothers Livin’ on the Fault Line. Even earlier in 1972, Toto drummer Jeff Porcaro extended the invitation to McDonald to join Steely Dan.
