It’s the gift that keeps on covering.
Weezer’s cover of Toto’s “Africa” became a runaway hit in its own right – Weezer’s first in a decade, in fact. Now, art imitating art imitates art, and Toto has covered Weezer. They chose the 2001 single “Hash Pipe” to debut at a show in Vancouver.
“We figured since we were smoking hash since before they were born, that’s the one we should do,” says Steve Lukather as they start to play. “This is our tribute to Weezer, god bless ’em.”
Toto will play Fox Theater Friday.
