Steve Lukather of Toto has gone on record saying the band is done with recording studio albums.
Steve sat down for an interview with MisplacedStraws.com and said, "There's not gonna be another Toto record. What we do is we continue doing what we do. [Singer] Joe [Williams] and I can make [solo] records and have some of the cats on it. And we can go out and play as Toto. And if we get the audience, we pay off the people that sued us, and we go forward...
"I'm gonna dig in. I don't roll over easily. I've taken a lot of punches over the last 45-plus years — whatever the hell it is; it's a long time. So I can take a punch, man, and I've taken a whole lot of 'em on falsities. But that's okay. It's behind me now. I let it all go. Peace and love to everybody.”
Lukather referred to a lawsuit that was filed against him and bandmate David Paich by drummer Jeff Porcaro’s widow Susan Porcaro-Goings. Porcaro passed away back in 1992 and Susan wound up landing a big portion of the group’s future gross earnings (possibly up to 5%).
Lukather blamed that settlement on bad legal management. The lawsuit wound up causing a rift between Luather and Jeff’s brother Steve Pocaro. Steve played with Toto through 2019.
