“Luke” in Indy!

One of my favorite guitarists of all time – Steve Lukather – is going to be at the Music Mill in Indy on Aug. 20! For those not familiar with his work, he is simply one of the most versatile rock guitarists of all time. He’s got it all – speed, finesse, fury, passion, taste, melodic sensibility, diversity of style, and he can flat out make you cry or melt your face! Here’s a sample (watch the whole thing in its entirety to get a sense of his diversity):

Steve Lukather, most famously known as an original member of the band Toto, is also a world-reknown studio musician and gun-for-hire by such acts as Boz Scaggs, Alice Cooper, Hall & Oates, KISS, Pointer Sisters, Barbara Streisand, Cheap Trick, Earth Wind & Fire, Elton John, Cher, Aretha Franklin, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Dan Seals, George Benson, Peter Cetera, Peter Frampton, Quincy Jones, Chicago, Herbie Hancock, Don Henley, Michael Jackson (That’s him playing all the other guitar parts on Thriller except the famous solo by EVH), Kenny Loggins, Michael MacDonald, Joni Mitchell, The Tubes, Warren Zevon, Christopher Cross, Randy Newman, Kenny Rogers, Joe Cocker, The Jacksons, Chaka Kahn, Paul McCartney, Chet Atkins, Neil Diamond, Dave Weckl, Richard Marx, Wilson Phillips, Bette Midler, Bob Segar, Rod Stewart, Van Halen, Spinal Tap, Whitney Houston, Meat Loaf, Lionel Ritchie, and Miles Davis. Of course that’s only a partial listing!!!

    Is that the great wizard Merlin playing bass?

    I drove to Detroit by myself one year to see the Luke and Larry (Carlton) concert there. Was VERY cool. Came home with a custom “Luke & Larry” guitar pic that Lukather tossed off the stage at one point! I have it in a little show box with my ticket.
