* 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 percussionist.

** This was averted, naturally, with Mike Porcaro, who is very well-like within and outside of the band.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* ExecutiveMeddling: They were hit with it pretty hard after Joseph Williams quit. Based on the assumption that neither Williams nor Kimball had provided a suitable "Face" for the group (see below), the record company decided to force a new singer, Jean-Michel Byron (Lukather frustratedly complained, "the guy had never even heard ''Music/LedZeppelin IV''"), into the band.



* HeyItsThatGuy: The band members' names frequently show up in the credits for other successful albums of the era. Most notably, ''[[Music/MichaelJackson Thriller]]'' featured instrumental and arranging contributions by Lukather, Paich and Jeff and Steve Porcaro (the latter also co-wrote "Human Nature"). In addition, long before they found success on their own, they appeared on several albums recorded by Boz Scaggs.

While the group's music incorporates HardRock, ProgressiveRock, {{Soul}} and {{Jazz}}, they are most commonly associated with the SoftRock and [=AOR=] categories. Indeed, they are often noted as the TropeCodifier for the latter genre; their keyboard-driven music combined with Kimball's soaring vocal and Lukather's slashing guitar arguably bridged the gap between FleetwoodMac and {{Music/Foreigner}}.
