"We added a couple of our kitschy little things to it"

Toto have revealed that they will release a cover of Weezer’s ‘Hash Pipe’.

A fan-driven campaign that got Weezer to cover the classic rock band’s number one hit ‘Africa’ in May, will see Toto return the favour with one of Weezer’s most celebrated songs.

Singer/guitarist Steve Lukather and keyboardist Steve Porcaro announced the news during an appearance on Los Angeles’ KROQ on Friday (July 29).

If you missed my chat with @stevelukather and Steve Porcaro from #toto, listen why and how they chose @Weezer's "Hash Pipe" to cover. I played it on @KROQ Friday, it's officially available Aug 10th. #TotocoversWeezer @toto99com

Asked why they decided to go with the ‘Green Album’ song, Porcaro said they originally wanted to cover Weezer’s ‘Beverly Hills’.

“I thought ‘Hash Pipe’ had a better melody,” Lukather said. “I love the message, you know what I mean?… And we wanted to do it justice.

“We wanted to do our thing to it, but still pay respect to it. And we added a couple of our kitschy little things to it, which I hope that they laugh [at]. We wish we could be in the room when they hear it.”

The pair also discussed Weezer’s cover of ‘Africa’ and gave it a “B++”. The band, they said, “kicked ass on it.”

Lukather added: “Our music has such little nuance. We spent so much meticulous time.

“These guys stood this shit up in an afternoon.”

KROQ debuted Toto’s cover after the interview but the cover will not be officially available until this week.
