Steve Lukather

It’s no surprise when we say that Steve Lukather wears his heart on his sleeve.  We’ve known this about him for a long time and his recently released autobiography titled “The Gospel According To Luke” is a fascinating look into his career in music, yet it also contains very honest and candid accounts of the trials and tribulations of the business that he’s experienced along the way.  His music, songwriting, and his prowess on the guitar is a gift he has shared with all of us for over 40 years and it’s earned him immense respect by his peers and fans as one of the greatest musicians to ever pick-up a guitar, but as fans we often don’t realize the sacrifice, the time and the work that it takes to achieve what Luke has accomplished.  While the book contains an incredible variety of these accounts, memoirs and stories, it only scratches the surface. Since it’s been close to four years since we last had Luke on the show, it’s definitely time to catch-up with him, dig a little deeper into his mind, and we’ve included many questions from our listeners from around the world. Inside MusiCast is pleased to welcome our good friend, Steve Lukather.

Los Lobotomys - David Garfield and Doug Bossi

In the mid to late 1980’s, if it was a Tuesday night at the Baked Potato in North Hollywood, it was Los Lobotomys night.  The original band, an offshoot of David Garfield’s band Karizma, consisted of some of the best musicians in L.A., included Jeff Porcaro, Lenny Castro, Nathan East, Brandon Fields, Steve Lukather and David Garfield.  Lines formed outside the Spud’s door with fans who wanted to experience the band’s instrumental rock, jazz fusion and be-bop. However, the Lobotomys’ door was always open and many guests appears with them throughout the years, including Carlos Vega, Joe Sample, Vinnie Colaiuta, David Sanborn, Gregg Bissonette, Sheila E., Marcus Miller, Larry Carlton, Slash, Pat Travers, David Paich, Bobby Kimball, Alex Acuña, Chad Wackerman and many others. Fast forward to 2018 and the band is still going strong and has reinvented its lineup.  With a new album on the way, Los Lobotomys is back as version 3.0 and consists of its founder, David Garfield, along with Lenny Castro on percussion, John Peña on bass, Chad Wackerman on drums and the latest addition, guitarist Doug Bossi. Inside MusiCast is pleased to welcome back our old friend David Garfield and guitarist Doug Bossi.
