There are some musicians coming to Chicago this weekend -- and despite having a number of hits, they don't get a lot of respect.

Steve and Dave are good -- but mention their band's name and people start laughing.

But do you know who loves them? Pretty much every big shot in the music industry.

They were asked to work on a little album names "Thriller." Michael Jackson called them personally.

And you know who else they worked with? The Beatles.

These guys are among just a few musicians in the world who have worked with both Michael Jackson and The Beatles.

And again, they are coming to Chicago this weekend.

So who are these misfits who get no respect from anyone except The Beatles and Michael Jackson?

You may know them by their hit song: "Africa."

The band is Toto!
