I admittedly know nothing about what formal contracts or agreements might exist between the band and Jeff's widow. If there are no agreements the band is clearly breaching, then she can fuck right off.

The fact of the matter is that Jeff had to have, or should have had, at least a decent bit of money by the time he died. Did he have no life insurance at all? I'm sure I make less than Jeff at his peak and I have plenty of life insurance to ensure my family, two kids included, would be fine if I dropped over tomorrow. And he's been dead for 27 years. There are no young kids to worry about supporting, she presumably has plenty of time. She can get off her ass and support herself. Really a shame after all the band has done for Jeff. I'm sure he'd be beside himself if he were here.

She is married to a billionaire. This lawsuit isn't primarily about money I think.

No shit? Wow. I didn't know that. And of course it's about money.

I said not primarily about money. There are deeper grudges at work here than mere numbers and dollar bills.

Great post. Luke and the gang have kept Jeff's legacy alive. Fuck this lady.

At 1:41 and 4:25 of Lea, close-ups of SP have him in a T-shirt. All the other shots have him in a blazer. I have to just shake my head at this in disbelief.

I must admit to not being overly annoyed by Steve Porcaro cropping up in a t-shirt for a couple of seconds when what we have is a great document of what was just about the last full show Toto did with David Paich (and a fantastic line-up) and one of the best setlists they ever put together.

I can only imagine the amount of work that must have gone into an endeavour such as this dvd, and with Toto being amidst a full-blown world tour I think there was only so much time that could be devoted to it - which was probably not enough to make it t-shirt perfect, but still enough to make it sound out of this world.

If you really want an itch on your back just beyond your reach, have a look at I Won't Hold You Back off of the Live in Paris 1990 dvd...

Luke himself said he will never watch it again. If he is angry with the result, I think fans should be also. The continuity errors are all over the place.
