Toto’s drug hell revealed in second issue of AOR.
TOTO FRONTMEN BOBBY Kimball and Joseph Williams have come clean about the drug problems that plagued the band.
Talking to Classic Rock Presents AOR about being sacked from Toto in 1984, original vocalist Kimball said: “Sure, I did get a little too high – I had to go to the hospital and they felt it was wrong for Toto’s image. They used the substance abuse thing as the centre of the target and they came down on me because of it. It was kind of weird having a jury of murderers trying to hang me.'
Williams, who sang with Toto from ’86 to ’89 and is now part of the re-formed lineup, added: “There were times when I just couldn’t sing, which was really a direct result of doing too much cocaine.'
