Weird Al Yankovic joins Weezer to do Toto’s Africa
August 9th, 2018 under Weezer, Weird Al Yankovic. [ Comments: none ]

Weezer recently released Toto’s 1983 hit Africa and took it #1 on the Billboard Alternative charts this week. In turn, Toto is releasing Weezer’s 2001 hit Hash Pipe tomorrow. Got it?

Here is another update to the musical story. Yesterday, while Weezer was playing Los Angeles, Weird Al Yankovic and his accordion joined the band on stage to sing Africa along with Rivers Cuomo. Who knew you could do a thrashing rock solo with accordion, but turns out you can.

This update on the update is so bitchin’, I think they should release it. Then at some point, Weird Al needs to meet up with Toto on tour and do Hash Pipe with them. Especially, since Toto gave this review the Weirdzer cover, “Nicely done Al!”


Toto does Weezer because Weezer did Toto!

Two months ago, Weezer released a cover of Toto’s 1982 hit Africa, and now that band is doing a cover of Hash Pipe.

On Monday, Toto began their 40th-anniversary tour in Vancouver, and they debuted their take on the 2001 song. Why this one out of all of Weezer’s hits? Guitarist Steve Lukather explained, “We figured since we were smoking hash since before they were born, that’s the one we should do.” But then again, three out of four of them were alive at the same time as Buddy Holly, so they could have gone with that too.

Either way both covers are totally bitchin’! Time for Jimmy Kimmel to have them on the show and do a Rock Battle with both tunes to see whose take is better. How awesome would that be?

Any Dream Will Do with Rivers Cuomo singing that song!
February 10th, 2014 under Weezer. [ Comments: none ]

Rivers Cuomo uploaded a video of himself singing Any Dream Will Do from Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and it is dream. Seriously if Broadway or NBC decides to do Joseph, I think he would be great for the lead role.
BTW how cool is it to hear the Weezer singer singing the Broadway tune? Not something I ever would’ve expected from the Troublemaker.


Can Rivers Cuomo look any more excited about The Weezer Cruise?
March 11th, 2013 under Weezer. [ Comments: none ]

Weezer is setting sail from Jacksonville, Fl to the Bahamas next Valentine’s Day weekend and the band is like Say It Ain’t So in this commercial for The Weezer Cruise. You’d think they would be happy to go to their Island in the Sun, but they look more like someone just told them that Buddy Holly is dead. Seriously someone get them a Hash Pipe, so they can be the troublemakers that they are.
BTW I wonder if they are serving Pork and Beans on the cruise? It would be sinful if they didn’t.


Is Rivers Cuomo auditioning for Dancing with the Stars?
August 16th, 2011 under Weezer. [ Comments: none ]

Rivers Cuomo has been posting videos of him taking dance lessons and I want to know if the Weezer singer is doing that so he can be on Dancing with the Stars. If he is he will totally need a few more dance lesson because even though he graduated Harvard in his 30s his dancing is not up the Ivy League standards. Having said that, I still think he looks so cute trying his hardest to get the steps down!
