    The best. Any genre, any speed, any thing... He delivers gold in one or two takes. He's beyond just chops.

    Wished I could be there too .... Steve Lukather is just the best among all the guitarists and he is a complete musician. He is the reason why I play guitar... Thanks for all the great music Luke....GBU Luke. (Awie, Jakarta)

    I've got this CD and met Steve at a small show in the Cleveland Area . One of my favorite CD 's I play it often driving down the road . Steve was as nice a person you get. Stood for pictures and chatted with everyone. Thanks Steve !!

    whether it's a documentary or a museum or movie or star on the walk of fame steve lukather deserves to be nationally and internationally recognized as t h e guitarist of the century . Gilmore is great , and beck is great , and it does go on and on ____but someone has to be at the top . and that is steve

      @gary schraa Don’t get me wrong - Lukather’s a great player. At one point, he was doing almost 100% of the studio gigs for rock guitarists all by himself!
      What Jimmy Page was to the London 60’s studio scene, Lukather was to L.A. in the 80’s.

      @Mitchell Levine Thank you . (Now ) I just have to mention this because this is either the most coincidental of all coincidences , or my name isn't Gary , but when I googled "Mitchell Levine" ________ what I got was 'Andy Mitchell' guitar teacher at Levine Music School and that in 1999 you recorded a solo guitar album titled "Chimaera" (Thus explaining your in-depth knowledge and my lack of) haha ain't that something ?

      @gary schraa I believe “Dean” was just Mike Landau’s nickname.

    • gary schraa
      gary schraa 2 years ago

      @Mitchell Levine I guess maybe I'm biased towards Steve . lol . So I guess what I was expecting were stronger adjectives about him like , accomplished , incredible , etc. As for Dean Landau I wonder if you meant "Michael Landau" ? My point being that at the top of world class guitarists such as Larry , Michael , and Steve , being humble and placing your closest circle of friends above yourself shows class . With all of that said I believe I finally see [SemiLive sixstring strumists] point checks out and is correct after all . Thank you guys

    Steve, thanks for all the great music through the years. Keep putting out the solo records. They are MUCH appreciated.
    Does anybody know what any of those anonymous amps were ? The AC 30 and Marshall (what model? ) were easily identified. Steve ? Anybody ? Thanks for posting this video!!!

      Alessio Sfasci 8 years ago +5

      Hey mate, in this record Luke used a lot of vintage amps.. A 1959 Gibson GA-6, a 1950 Magnatone 213, and a 1966 Supro 1620T. The Vox was a 1964 Vox AC30 Top boost model, and the Marshalls are a JCM2000 DSL 100 and a little JMP.. it's a 2061X

  • Ewout Honig

    One of the weirdest produced albums ever. Very large dynamic range, very present but narrow mixed drums, guitars at times as wide as a jumbojet and LOUD in the mix.... But hey... I like it.

    • Evan Keal
      Evan Keal 3 years ago

      I thought the same, it sounds like my mixed, and the drums are detracting the overall quality, both in tone and the aforementioned contrast to the music in spatial terms. Maybe they were not yet processed fully, compression would easily fix most issues I am wanting to resolve on them listening here.

    Even though all of the amps sounded good, I thought the second amp he tried sounded the best. But of course pretty much anything would sound good with Steve playing through it!

    I'm late to the Lukather party even though I was a ToTo fan in the early 80's. I guess because it wasn't harder rock I skipped over it. Now I've learned to play Rosanna on guitar, fun song to play.

      Do you have Toto's album Kingdom of Desire JamCave Studio? It's my favourite Toto album, and the last one the mighty Jeff Porcaro played on. It's got a harder edge to it. Check out the youtube for this current tour as well, killer live. They have started releasing their US tour dates for the summer too, if that's where you're from.
