Larry Carlton e Steve Lukather Band

Fazia um bom tempo que eu não passava no "lujinha" do meu irmão PoucoSiso e até fui chamado a atenção com toda a propriedade, mas não é que não passei, é que a vontade de "pegar" um post e trazer pra alcatéia era insuportável e estou em tratamento contra este hábito (ré,ré,ré acho que tive uma recaída!!!).

Bem, eu não havia baixado e nem assistido justamente por isso mas a história descrita pelo PS me intrigava e chamava a atenção e todo dia ficava com isso na cabeça; aí achei hoje de fazer uma postagem e queria algo à altura de um Hendrix ou de um Cotton e lembrei dele de novo e não resisti.
Alterei algumas coisas prq ele mesmo sabe que tenho meu jeito de postar e ele o dele, mas com isso só quis colocar uma moldura numa postagem de ótimo gosto e de qualidade melhor ainda.

Não é pra ter meu carimbo não, e sim pra demonstrar de alguma maneira o respeito e a admiração que tenho por ele e o qto sua amizade me é cara, ele e os seus e nossa Aninha guerreira, sempre conosco na alcatéia.
Espero gostem, prq pra aqueles que gostam de um bom show, este é um prato cheio.

Abaixo o post do blog Poucosiso da Extrada e um belo release biográfico."Andando pela vida, tenho sempre o cuidado de olhar por onde passo a procura de novidades.

Trupiquei neste dvd e achei muito interessante a união do Larry Carlton com Steve Lukather.

As histórias dos dois são vertentes diferentes, Larry é jazzista de renome e é conhecido por seu toques polidos e dono de uma técnica fantástica.

Foi alvejado na garganta, dentro de seu apartamento, por uma bala perdida que entrou pela janela.
Pra quem acha que isso só acontece no Rio de Janeiro...

Steve correu os corredores do pop, com Toto, e seu trabalho é muito conhecido e tbm apreciado por este paupérrimo escriba.

Assim então, temos aqui a apresentação em Paris, de 2001, devidamente ripada em AVI para vosso deleite."

PoucoSisoBiography by Greg Prato

Best known as the guitarist for early MTV-era hitmakers Toto, Steve Lukather remains one of the world's top session men, having played on well over a hundred recordings by a wide variety of artists over the years. Born in Los Angeles, CA, on October 21, 1957, Lukather discovered rock music the way just about every single other young U.S. citizen did during the '60s — via the Beatles.

Starting off as a drummer and keyboardist, it wasn't until his father purchased Lukather a guitar that he found his true musical calling. At first self-taught, Lukather eventually sought the help of older guitar-playing classmates, as well as a formal teacher, which led to an interest in becoming a session guitarist (courtesy of drummer Jeff Porcaro and keyboardist Steve Porcaro, both of whom attended the same high school as Lukather).

Right around the time Lukather turned 20, the guitarist was invited to join the Porcaro brothers in a pop/rock band comprised primarily of studio musicians, Toto (which also featured singer Bobby Kimball, bassist David Hungate, and keyboardist/singer David Paich).

While Lukather would join the band, he also managed to maintain his busy session schedule, playing on albums by Leo Sayer, Boz Scaggs, Alice Cooper, Barbra Steisand, the Pointer Sisters, Cher, and Cheap Trick during the late '70s.
Specializing in the same mainstream radio rock sounds as Foreigner and Journey, Toto scored a hit right off the bat with their debut album, 1978's Toto, which cracked the U.S. Top Ten, as did one of its singles, "Hold the Line."
Despite the immediate commercial success, many critics gave Toto the tag of being a "faceless slick band," and it appeared as though it was a fitting description, as Toto's next two releases, 1979's Hydra and 1981's Turn Back, failed to match the artistic and commercial success of their hit debut.

Just as it appeared as though Toto would continue their slide off the charts, the group issued one of 1982's biggest albums, the Grammy Award-winning Toto IV, a Top Five album that spawned such monster hits as "Rosanna" (number two) and "Africa" (number one), as well as a single that Lukather penned entirely himself, "I Won't Hold You Back" (number ten).

The same year, most of Toto was invited to play on Michael Jackson's Thriller, one of the biggest-selling albums in pop music history. As a result, session work poured in for Lukather, as he played on '80s-era recordings by Elton John, Herb Alpert, Warren Zevon, Chicago, Lionel Richie, Joni Mitchell, and Neil Diamond, among countless others.

Toto continued to issue albums on a semi-regular basis, but after deciding to part ways with singer Kimball after Toto IV, the group was unable to sustain their success.

Despite juggling his busy schedule between session dates and Toto, Lukather managed to also launch a solo career during the late '80s, with the release of his 1989 debut, Lukather. Further solo releases followed (1994's Candyman, 1997's Luke, 2001's Grammy Award-winning collaboration with Larry Carlton, No Substitutions, and 2003's Santamental), as did further sessions (Bob Seger, Rod Stewart, Spinal Tap, Van Halen, and the Yardbirds).
