This Day In Rock. TOTO
Steve Lukather was born on October 21, 1957 in Los Angeles, California, US.
Lukather really doesn't need any presentation. Luke's one of the most famous guitar players in modern time. From his work in Toto to all the studio sessions, he is one most of the most influental guitar players out there.
Lukather has recorded guitar tracks for more than 1,500 albums representing a broad array of artists and genres just like Leo Sayer, Boz Scaggs, Alice Cooper, Barbra Steisand, the Pointer Sisters, Cher, and Cheap Trick during the late '70s as he played on '80s-era recordings by Michael Jackson, Elton John, Herb Alpert, Warren Zevon, Chicago, Lionel Richie, Joni Mitchell, and Neil Diamond, among countless others.
Influenced by such blues-rock guitarists as Jimi Hendrix and Jimmy Page and such jazz fusion players as Al Di Meola and frank Gambale, Lukather is known for a "melodic and intense" playing style. He is also recognized for his efficiency in the studio, often recording tracks in one take using minimal sound processing.
He has been nominated for twelve Grammy awards, and has won five: three of his five Grammy Awards for work with Toto, twice as an artist. He has been named by Gibson Guitar Corporation as one of the top 10 session guitarists of all time.
‘Turn Your Love Around’ won the Best R&B Song Grammy Award at the 25th Grammy Awards in 1983 for Bill Champlin, Jay Graydon, and Steve Lukather as its composers.
