About

Sessiondays is a project of collecting and sharing the information of sessionplayers during the 70s and 80s. I started with collecting all the sessions of Steve Lukather. First I posted my finding on Facebook and then I built this website. The Facebook group is increasing every day and Steve is coming by now and then to comment the sessions. There are a lot of positive vibes in that group. My first goal is to collect these sessions and the next step is to start with the other Toto guys. We will see where I will end after that. There is a lot of work to do. It is fun and interesting.

Besides collecting the sessions, I will try to interview other sessionplayers to get an impression how the sessiondays were. I already interviewed Bruce Gaitsch, Bill Champlin and Terence Boylan. I hope to find more sessionplayers and artists to share their stories.

There is more to improve this site. This is a start and let’s see where it ends.

    Hey,
    thought I’d let you know that I really enjoy yur site and love finding intersting info while reading it. As you I’m also very interested in those session musicians that played on hundreds of records and especially the Toto guys – real legends to me 🙂
    I love Simon Phillips’ playing and that’s why I wanted to ask if you could make a section for his discography sometime? I’d really appreciate that!
    Thanks for all your hard work!
    Jonny

      Hi Jonny,

      Thank you for your mail and nice words. Simon Philips is on top of my list to add to the discography list. My first thought was to look into the LA sessionplayers, but the England sessiondays are interesting too. Simon was a Toto member and he sure deserves a place on my site.

      Regards,

      Jan

    Great site. I wish I had the ability to do something like this. I’m a liner notes junkie and love the idea of those being online. One question: any chance you can have the songwriting credits on your site? I like looking for songs by composer.

      Thank you James! Maybe I will do that in the future. I did this with the Toto guys, but not on all albums. For now, I am only focused on the session players.

    Hey great stuff here! But, would love to see Dann Huff on here! He’s another of those amazing session guys that has been on countless recordings. Would love to see him.
