Toto (band)

Toto is an American pop/rock band which had their greatest commercial successes in the 1980s.

Toto was formed in Los Angeles in 1978 (see 1978 in music) with the following members:

Comprised entirely of seasoned studio musicians, Toto seemed to come out of nowhere. They did not get known first on the club circuit as nearly all bands do prior to being signed by a label. Their reputations in the studio were enough. 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 Album of the Year.
