LOL

Gotta admit it,DD--yer scarin' me here. or maybe you just want to drag out this thread to see how long we'll bite(?). I sure hope it's the later,guy. Toto had three accomplished singers who obviously WANTED to sing lead on some of their tunes--espescially since they WROTE alot of them. But they also knew the huge value in having Bobby in the band to have that great variety/mix of singing styles within one band. KImball was a natch standout for his clear,high tenor. It's a headturner and gave them that much more ammo as a group. It's just that simple,really. I'm glad they still went on to do well w/o BK,but I for one never thought of them quite as highly after IV. Never even got KOD or Tambu til more recently,and admittedly don't go back to them tho I think they're decent enough. if I want to hear classic Toto--it's those first 4 any & every time for me. T

PS: in all honesty-- I think the band struggled greatly to find a replacement for Bobby. They were o the fast track to stardom with IV with those monster singles-and them already being an established act with other hits from earlier records. It was a damn shame they couldn't continue with BK as they'd have been HUGE. Instead--they did just ok and kind of faded out here in the US by & large. Cool they remained popular in other parts of the world,tho. Even so--you can tell how Luke is/was MAJORLY bummed about their lack of momentum here in their native land. I'll bet he always harbored some pretty strong regrets of how that all came down with Bobby having to leave. Right on the brink of super stardom...
