I recently "rediscovered" Mike Porcaro when I bought their "Live in Amsterdam DVD". Although I`m a bass player myself I was more familiar with Lukather and Phillips, mainly cause I`ve always paid more attention to them. One of my main reasons to watch was Mike`s Peavey Cirrus. I gotta admit that his timing, groove and tone, were simply perfect. His definitely a very solid player. After watching it several times I felt mixed emotions. I really admire them as individual musicians and they`re incredibly tight and professional. However, I dislike most of their music (I find it a bit "cheesy" to my taste) and their lead singer was awful.
