Robert Troy Kimball was born in Orange, Texas, and was raised in nearby Vinton, Louisiana, as Vinton did not have a hospital (thus, he was born across the state line). Kimball started singing as a child, dabbling on voice and piano in a musical household throughout his youth. Throughout the 1970s, Kimball performed as a vocalist in various New Orleans-area bands, including The Levee Band, which would later become LeRoux after Kimball left.

In 1974, Bobby Kimball left Louisiana and moved to Los Angeles where he joined 3 members from the defunct band, Three Dog Night, to form a new band called S.S. Fools. They released one album on CBS Records, but the band split up within a year and a half. About six months later, Kimball was asked by David Paich and Jeff Porcaro, to join the five session musicians to form Toto. He submitted a self-penned audition song for the band, “You Are The Flower”, which was included on their debut album. Kimball performed on the first four studio albums by Toto, but was released from the band in 1984 during the sessions for the Isolation LP.

A longstanding urban legend holds that the band named itself ‘Toto’ after Kimball’s “real” name, “Robert Toteaux.” In reality, this story was simply a joke perpetrated and perpetuated by Toto’s original bassist, David Hungate. According to Toto guitarist Steve Lukather, the reason for this choice of band name was that Toto was “really simple, easy to remember and easily identified in every language.”
