Didn't get time to ask him, but it was an interesting conversation. Had my music-loving 14-year-old son on there, and the guys gave him some advice on writing songs and in particular crafting parts with other people in the room. Son has been a kind of a bedroom savant for years, but he recently found some guys to play with in a band situation (drums), and they are exploring that space of working up songs and also writing some of their own. Old school.

He loves the Beatles and almost couldn't believe that Steve plays with Ringo Starr.

To him, all Toto is "older peoples'" music so he hears it all the same. Absolutely LOVES Spanish Sea and Devil's Tower, putting them right up there with any of the 80s hits.

In any event, he likes a lot of stuff but knows/has learned that the Toto guys have a connection to Steely Dan and also to Quincy Jones (who he loves). So he got inspired by this conversation and spent a few hours finishing up recording himself doing vocals for Steely Dan's "Kid Charlemagne." Not perfect, but not at all bad for a one-afternoon job. He ended up stacking 5 vocal tracks (all his own and all done by ear). I felt pretty proud about how it came out - especially for a drummer.
