Weezer's cover of "Africa"

Not a big Weezer fan, but they covered Toto's "Africa" for the 2019 "New Year's Rockin' Eve" celebration and the bassist used a Rickenbacker.

My wife loves that cover.

Some of Weezer's choices as of late have me scratching my head, but I suppose they've earned the right to do whatever they want. :)

Those Weezer guys would have been in their early teens when Toto released the tune...maybe it was one of those nostaligic, guilty pleasure kind of things. They did a good job with it though.
