Bobby Kimball

Needless to say, He is the first lead vocalist of the one of the most popular West Coast Pop group "Toto". His real name is Robert Toteaux. He had left "Toto" after their best seller album titled "Toto IV".
 
After Toto days, He established his status in Germany by the project named "Far Corporation" in 1985 releasing hit single "Stair to Heaven" (originally performed by Led Zeppelin) ranked No.8 on UK Chart.
After releasing 2 albums for special projects, Bobby has released his first solo album titled "Rise Up" in Germany in October 1994, also available in Japan as follows. And he was brought back to TOTO in 1998 to tour all over the world and also to release the album "Mindfields". On the other hand, Bobby still continue to do his own solo works as before.
