Where to start?? For YEARS Bobby Kimball has marketed and/or toured as either " Toto " or " The Voice Of Toto" he even did a live orchestral album ( The Voice of TOTO Frankfurt Rock Orchestra? 1990) in the early 1990's of toto songs..many he never sang originally or were recorded after he was fired in early 1984

99, I'll Be Over You, I won't Hold You Back, Out OF Love to name a few.

Bobby has toured ( I witnessed it in person) in 1994 when TOTO came to Oakbrook Terrace IL when it was BK touring as TOTO. I had the venue change the name as it was fraud.

Bobby Kimball continued touring as TOTO or calling himself the Voice Of Toto ( so did Fergie for over 15 years)
THen that mostly slowed down until Luke A CO-FOUNDER Of Toto along with Paich and company, decided he had enough ( his right he owes nobody a thing fans included after 31 years)

Luke was the main or co-lead songwriter, Lead Guitarist, Co-Lead Singer & Frontman of Toto ( still is) & the only guy who was there for every album, session & live gig. If he wanted 5% more than the others..so what? He decided it was done. Agree or not it was HIS say.

Regardless if you like him as person, singer whatever..Kimballs been ripping off the band, tarnishing the legacy and ILLEGALLY selling TOTO music & merch and promoting himself as Toto or Voice of Toto for the well over 12 years

For the Record..
Toto doesnt need me or anyone to speak for them. They do outstanding business overseas in Europe, Asia and many other markets selling out 20-50,000 seat sheds & festivals while Bobby sullyies his legacy with TOTO ( my opinion) by singing terribly while promoting himself as the REAL VOICE of toto.

I just get pissed off when i see people slagging & ripping Luke & the band for not wanting a guy who can't hack it anymore & who rips them.

BK flat-out cannot hack it anymore and hasnt for a long time (without Auto-tune, Melodyne etc)

He also accuses Joseph Williams & TOTO for singing songs live he, BK originated ( Hilarious as They mostly cover Paich, Luke & JW songs)

Hmmmm see here in this video ( skip along for songs played) & see for yourself how many songs BK does that not only he never sang on but Wasn't even in the band at the time they were recorded/released! Yeah Voice of the band Toto my ass.
