Lukather Parties Sober With Slash, Billy Gibbons, Richie Sambora

(Classic Rock) Toto's Steve Lukather says he enjoyed a recent gathering with fellow guitarists Slash, Billy Gibbons, Richie Sambora and Orianthi - even though none of the former party animals were drinking.

He's put years of drug and alcohol abuse behind him to safeguard himself against the risks of life on the road. And he joined forces with artists who feel the same way when he performed a benefit gig for Los Angeles schools in January.

Lukather tells Music Radar, "It's so funny because I was doing a charity event last Monday night, and it was like Billy Gibbons, Slash, Sambora, Orianthi, myself, and we're standing there with all these guys and I'm looking around and nobody's drinking at all and there's no partying.

"We're all going, 'Yep, we used to be carried out of every place we went and now we're all back to having a water and everybody talking very softly and mature.' Still having a lot of laughs, though.

"I like to feel good every day and I'm so glad that I found my brain again, and my soul. And I think we all feel that way because rock 'n' roll can suck you in and spit you out. Try going on the road for 40 years for 200 days a year. It's a mind-f***." Read more here.
