Basic Background Info

Birth: April 1, 1954 - August 5, 1992
Location: Hartford, Connecticut
Band: TOTO
Genres: Rock
Instruments: Drums
Occupation: Musician


Jeff Porcaro, son of drum legend Joe Porcaro, started playing the drums seriously when he was seven years old. Jeff studied under Rich Lapore, as well as his father, and Bob Zimmitti. These lessons, coupled with Jeff Porcaro’s innate talent and impeccable sense of rhythm, turned him into one of the industry’s best drummers. Although drumming sculpted Jeff Porcaro’s life, he never allowed it to control him. Jeff Porcaro has always tried to maintain a balance and perspective between drumming and his personal relationships.

Given the opportunity to accompany Sonny and Cher in Las Vegas, Jeff Porcaro left high school during his senior year to pursue music. Since then, Jeff Porcaro has toured and recorded with Seals and Croft, Boz Scaggs, Steely Dan, Dire Straits, Michael Jackson, Elton John, Don Henley, Warren Zevon, and Brue Springsteen. Jeff Porcaro has also played with Bonnie Raitt, the Bee Gees, Jackson Brown, Etta James, Joe Cocker, Paul McCartney, Pink Floyd, Peter Frampton, and Hall & Oates.

Jeff Porcaro co-founded TOTO with five outstanding studio musicians—David Paich, David Hungate, Steve Lukather, Steve Porcaro, and Bobby Kimball. Their 1978 self-titled debut album launched TOTO to the forefront of contemporary rock music. TOTO became one of the best-selling music groups of the era. The album, TOTO IV, featuring Africa and Rosanna, won 6 Grammy Awards.

In October of 1983, Jeff Porcaro married Susan Norris, a Los Angeles newscaster. Together, they had three sons—Christopher, Miles, and Nico.

On August 5, 1992, Jeff experienced an allergic reaction to a pesticide he used to treat his yard and suffered a major heart attack and died. An autopsy discovered a previously unknown serious heart condition. Five days later, more than 1,500 people honored Jeff’s legacy at the Hall of Liberty at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Hollywood Hills.

That December, an all-star memorial concert was held at the Universal Amphitheater in Los Angeles. Performers included Boz Scaggs, Donald Fagen, Don Henley, George Harrison, Michael McDonald, Eddie Van Halen, and TOTO. The concert proceeds created an educational trust for JJeff Porcaro’s children. The Jeff Porcaro Memorial Fund benefits music and art departments, and it provides college scholarships at Jeff’s alma mater, Grant High School in Los Angeles.
