Transition strikes a perfect balance of style, power and imagination as Lukather takes risks and faces challenges in ways most other players can’t fathom. “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.” One of the original founding members of the multi-million selling rock band TOTO, Lukather will showcase his innate feel for rock and jazz guitar music, along with his impeccable song writing talents. Transition showcases extraordinary guitar playing performed across some of the most heartfelt songs of Steve’s career.
In addition to his work with TOTO, Lukather is a 5-time Grammy winner who has played on 2000+ albums with some of the biggest stars and legends in music including Elton John, Paul McCartney, Roger Waters, Miles Davis, Alice Cooper, George Benson and Rod Stewart. He also played guitar on Michael Jackson’s multi-million selling milestone album ‘Thriller’, and is a member of Ringo Starr’s All-Starr Band (2012-2013), and has also toured with Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and John Petrucci in G3 2012. Following the release of the new album, Lukather will embark on an extensive European tour that will take in two UK concerts at London’s Islington o2 Academy (March 29) and Bilston’s Robin 2 (March 30).
