Very Cool..... a few more for you to try out:
1) Jeffrey's Rosanna groove over Fool In the Rain (the inverse of your first one)
2) Purdie's Home At Last groove over Rosanna
3) Bonham's groove over a) Babylon Sisters and b) Home At Last

The difficulty is that none of those songs (apart from Rosanna) have been released without drums and there's no isolated drums for Purdie's Home At Last.

Sounds like a new interrogation technique that should be forbidden.

"Sounds like a new interrogation technique that should be forbidden."

Surprised more of this hasn't taken off...that auto tune video
Paul posted was epic. There's a Youtube channel with well over a 1000
isolated tracks covering everything. Almost impossible to prove original
content if you add a little reverb and slightly change the tempo. I took
a Van Halen guitar isolated track and added a Bozzio drum track from
Missing Persons. Like a new song! Added a little reverb on the drums,
changed the tempo...edited a few extra cymbal crashes...almost nobody
could tell origin. Part of this new world...will only become easier to do.
Not saying right or wrong, just part of this new world.

What continues to impress me is how fast Jeff (and other studio cats) master
these arrangements. He always said he couldn't read well, but to be able to
sit in on a project when every second counts, and nail each arrangement he had
to read charts on the fly yes?



There's some very musical fills on this one during the solo...

Terrible sound quality, someone pointing his camera at his TV. But you can just about make out Jeff's solo.

The closest Jeff got to a solo might be the very end of All Us Boys on record...
Why TOTO does not play this song every live gig is beyond me...a thumpin rocker
that gets the blood boiling!



This video ranks right up there with Journey's Separate Ways
as an all-time blow hard...but Jeff's clear kit is pretty cool!

LOVE the bass @1:05...hmmmm, that is sweet candy!
What happens after I cannot be held responsible for...
I'm looping the bass @1:05 over and over...
