C&L's Late Nite Music Club With Toto

Sadly, Mike Porcaro, once longtime bassist for Toto, has passed away at 59.

Mike was one of the three Porcaro brothers to have been in Toto's lineup, the other's being Jeff and Steve. Mike first appeared on Toto's album, Isolation, and is credited as one of the writers on this song, "Mr. Friendly." So, for tonight's Music Club, we'd like to commemorate Mike's career and life with some of his songwriting and bass playing. R.I.P., Mike.

Got any favorite moments from Mike's bass playing or songwriting career?

Can you help us out?
