To paraphrase a Fab Four favorite, it’s getting better all the time for Beatles nut Steve Lukather. He’s already performed with Paul McCartney, George Harrison and (most recently) Ringo Starr, and he’s not done yet.
Lukather will appear with Starr again as part of the 56th annual Grammy Awards show this year, to air Sunday, January 26. He’ll also take the stage the next evening for a special salute to the Beatles on the 50th anniversary of their arrival in the U.S. The longtime Toto guitarist confirmed his invitation just moments ago, saying: “I’m deeply honored.”
The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles will feature the reunited Eurythmics, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Keith Urban and John Mayer, among others. The concert will air on CBS on Sunday, February 9. Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart haven’t toured together since 2000.
Meanwhile, Lukather has been at work with David Paich on the first new Toto studio effort since 2006. He began working with Starr in 2012 along with Todd Rundgren, Gregg Rolie and others in the latest All-Starr Band, and memorably worked with McCartney on 1984′s Give Me Regards to Broadstreet.
