Toto Star's Prognoses From Lou Gehrig's Disease Isn't Great

(Classic Rock) Toto keyboardist David Paich has described the "heartbreaking drag" of seeing retired bassist Mike Porcaro battling motor neurone disease.

The debilitating illness also known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and Lou Gehrig's disease forced him off the road in 2007 and has now put him in a wheelchair.

Toto split in 2008 but reformed two years later with the part aim of raising funds and awareness for Porcaro's condition. Bassist Nathan East has taken his place alongside Paich, Steve Lukather, Steve Porcaro, Joe Williams and Simon Phillips.

Paich tells here: "I'd like to say Mike's doing better, but the words I can use are: Mike's hanging in there. The prognosis isn't that great.
