Toto is an American rock band which had their greatest
commercial success in the 1980s. Toto was formed in Los
Angeles in 1977 by David Paich, Steve Lukather, Bobby Kimball,
brothers Steve and Jeff Porcaro, and David Hungate. The origin of the
name Toto, comes from Latin, meaning "all encompassing". As
Toto played a mixture of different styles, they agreed this
would be the best name.

Composed entirely of seasoned studio musicians, Toto seemed to come out of nowhere. They did not get known first on the club circuit as most bands do prior to being signed by a label. Their reputations in the studio were enough. For example, Paich, Hungate and Jeff Porcaro wrote songs for and performed on Boz Scaggs' critically-acclaimed hit album Silk Degrees. David Paich wrote "Lady Love Me (One More Time)" with James Newton Howard, Steve Porcaro co-wrote "Human Nature" for Michael Jackson and Steve Lukather co-wrote "Turn Your Love Around" for George Benson. Lukather was awarded a Grammy in 1983 when "Turn Your Love Around" (from the album The George Benson Collection) was chosen as best R&B song.
Toto released their self-titled debut album in October 1978, selling two million copies based on their top ten hit "Hold the Line". The next two albums, Hydra and Turn Back, had little success, but Toto IV (released in 1982) featured the number one hit "Africa", as well as the top ten single "Rosanna". Toto IV went multi-platinum and earned several Grammy Awards including 1983 Album of the Year and Record of the Year.
