From Steve Porcaros Facebook page:

The Porcaro Family is heartbroken to announce the passing of our beloved Patriarch, Joe Porcaro. Surrounded by his wife Eileen and his family, Joe passed peacefully in his sleep on July 6 at 11:37 PM
Please allow a few days before reaching out with phone calls and texts. Given the enormous amount of people who Joe considered family and whose lives Joe has impacted, it would be overwhelming to respond just now. Please know that we so appreciate your love, thoughts, friendship and can’t wait to celebrate his amazing life with all of you.

Just now found out. I'm stunned. 90 years is a good run, though, but still. RIP Joe and thanks for giving back so much.

Very sad. He’s had his share of tragedy in the family, but never the less not many have given as music to music as they have. RIP!
