"Rosanna" Drum Track Explained By Jeff Porcaro

The other day we listened to John Bonham play a version of Bernard Purdie's "Purdie Shuffle" on Led Zeppelin's "Fool In The Rain." Here's the late, great Toto drummer Jeff Porcaro explaining how he adapted the beat to use on Toto's big hit "Rosanna."

Porcaro was one of the most recorded drummers in history, working on huge albums for every major music star in the business during the 1980's. He died of a heart condition in 1992, but you can experience a little of his greatness here.
