Hey, remember Toto?!?

Toto Backpedals From Sex Change Joke
NEW YORK – Toto has had to backpedal after making a joke about drummer David Paich’s absence this summer. The band posted a message on its Web site saying Paich would miss the summer tour because he would be having a sex change operation. ‚Ć
Guitarist Steve Lukather had said Paich had dreamed of being a woman and they would be introducing “Davida” this fall.
It’s all just a joke. The band says the part about Paich being off the tour is true, but not because of an operation. Paich will be staying home because of the serious illness of a family member.
Band members say they didn’t expect so many people to believe the operation story, especially media outlets. Lukather says he’s sorry the joke got out of control and “one look at Dave and you would see it’s an impossible story.”
