Steve Lukather släpper memoarer
I april 2018 har det blivit dags för legendariske gitarrsten/sångaren Steve Lukather (Toto) att ge ut boken "The Gospel According to Luke". Så här går att läsa om den kommande boken:
Legendary session guitarist and founding member of Toto tells all about his wild ride on the rock ‘n’ rollercoaster in this engaging and often hilarious memoir. Loved by fans, respected by his peers, but loathed by the press, Steve Lukather has had one of the most unusual careers in the music business. His band, Toto, has sold forty million albums worldwide and created the mega-hits “Africa” and “Hold the Line.” Now they are celebrating their fortieth anniversary with a new album and world tour. Lukather began his career as a session guitarist and quickly became Quincy Jones’s go-to player. He worked extensively on Michael Jackson’s Thriller and later with seventy-five Rock and Roll Hall of Fame artists. He has recorded guitar tracks on over 1,500 albums. In his candid and humorous memoir, Lukather recounts working with music’s biggest legends, sharing some remarkable stories from his travels, including Barbra Streisand bullying her producers, why not to invite Elton John to a party, and the means by which Miles Davis revived a dead dog. Lukather’s extraordinary tale encompasses a life lived inside the music business from the time he was just nineteen and working with Boz Scaggs to his pivotal decision to join Toto with his childhood friend and renowned drummer, Jeff Porcaro. Steve Lukather is the singer and guitarist of Toto, the guitarist in Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band, and an accomplished session musician. Paul Rees was the editor-in-chief of the music magazines Q and Kerrang! He is the author of Robert Plant: A Life.
The book will be released on 5 Apr 2018 (UK)
