Aw, you’ve got to love a little bit of mutual backslapping. This is very apparent with Weezer and Toto. Weezer did a stellar cover of Toto’s “Africa” and now Toto are set to reciprocate Rivers Cuomo and the boys by releasing a version of their hit, “Hash Pipe.”
Guitarist Steve Lukatherhas said that their version of “Hash Pipe” will be available as of August 10th.
He said: “We had a lot of fun doing it,” adding: “I dug into [Weezer’s] catalogue and came out a fan of their music. The fact [that] we were smoking hash before Rivers and the lads were even alive made it that much funnier to us.”
It was back in May that Weezer released their version of “Africa.” This came after fan campaign had basically begged the band to cover the much-memed Toto hit. To top it off, the band also played it live on Jimmy Kimmel Live! And to top it off, they even had a guest appearance from Toto keyboardist Steve Porcaro.
