Yes he is a great musican no doubt. All the members of Toto are/were excellent session players. The drummer Jeff Porcaro also played with Box Scaggs and Steely Dan. He could play exotic beat time signatures like the “Rosanna Shuffle.” As well as a great drum teacher.
I really like Steve Lukather’s arrangements and phrasing on “Hold the line” one of my favorite solos of my generation. Plus he could play jazz, pop, hard rock you name it.
