Their greatest success was 1982's ''Toto IV'', which included the number one hit "Africa" and the number two hit "Rosanna" and won six Grammy awards for the band. Kimball left shortly after and the band's fortunes declined somewhat, but they found a semi-permanent replacement in the form of another school friend named Joseph Williams, son of the prolific film composer JohnWilliams. In spite of Jeff Porcaro's death as a result of heart failure brought on by cocaine use in 1992, the band continues to perform today (with Jeff's drumming role taken over by Simon Philips), sometimes with Kimball and sometimes with Williams.

* TheManBehindTheMan: As prolific session musicians and songwriters, the band members were involved in some way or another with about half of all the records that came out of California during the late 1970s and early 1980s, and in their own way they defined what American pop music would be like at this time. Jeff Porcaro in particular is lauded for his influence as a drummer.

* RevolvingDoorLineup: The band had shifted between six-piece, five-piece and at one time, a four-piece line-up through their career, with members drifting in and out of the band (along with Jeff Porcaro's tragic death and Mike Porcaro's struggles with multiple sclerosis), with only Steve Lukather having stayed with Toto through all of its incarnations.
