Over the previous decade a series of trials including divorce,
the death of his mother and business hassles had dampened his joy
in music making - a passion that drove Lukather to excel since
seeing the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan as a seven-year-old growing
up in San Fernando Valley. "Transition is a turning point for
the album and a turning point for me," Lukather explains. "As we
were writing the songs, I was thinking about everything I've seen -
all the people I've lost in my life, the great and the difficult
experiences I've had, and how ultimately it was time to get it
together and embrace things for what they are. We've only got
one life to live so we should make the most of it."
In addition to his work with TOTO, Lukather has played on
hundreds of albums with some of the biggest stars and legends in
music including Van Halen, Whitney Houston, Alice Cooper, George
Benson and Rod Stewart, he even played guitar on Michael Jackson's
multi-million selling milestone album 'Thriller'.
