After years of speculation surrounding who “Rosanna” was in the hit song of the same name, band members from Toto have confirmed that the song is actually about the Melbourne suburb of Rosanna. So it turns out fans of the song should’ve actually been asking where’s Rosanna instead of who’s Rosanna.

Apparently David Paich, keyboard player with Toto since 1977, lived in Rosanna for a couple of years in his teens before returning to America where he has spent most of his life. Those couple of years living in Australia obviously left quite a fond impression on Paich, who was later instrumental in the writing of the lyrics for “Rosanna” the song.
