Words from Mike Porcaro regarding the “Brotherly Love” release:

“I just wanted to let you know that I am releasing a Live record I made with David Garfield and an All Star cast featuring Steve Gadd, Gregg Bissonette, Lenny Castro, Glenn Hughes, my brother Steve, and father Joe and many other great cats. We recorded it live in Koblenz, Germany back in 2002 and it’s finally finished.

It’s coming out in Japan first on Ward Records, but will be released shortly after that in the US and the rest of the world. We’ll be posting more complete information soon. I hope you get a chance to check it out and enjoy! I want to thank everybody for the kind thoughts and prayers. I’m doing the best that I can……. Love, Mike.”
