It's messy stuff for sure. My take is that if the band died when Jeff did, the trademarks would be worth way less than they are now. There's been a Toto without Jeff twice as long as with. The continuation of the band and the brand surely made everyone (widows included) more money than if they'd binned it back in 1992. I'm sure Steve P. did okay out of having a viable band to tour with for a decade as well. It's easy to be the sensible one when you're not writing the million-dollar cheque.
