toto_david_paich_june_2David Paich was a driving force behind the Toto sound and now he’s guiding the sound of a new TV project – “Movies Rock.” CBS will air the special on December 7th featuring some of the biggest hits in movie history. Paich, whose official title is Musical Coordinator will have some heavy hitters sings on the special including Elton John, Carrie Underwood, Beyonce and John Legend. Paich is enjoying the experience but says the biggest challenge was giving each song a different spin. Paich is still a member of Toto but does not tour with the band. The keyboardist was recently in China preparing to write a theme for the 2008 Olympic Games. – by John Beaudin
