From DigitalMusicNews.com:

Primary Wave has acquired the publishing and recorded catalogs of Toto drummer (and “Africa” songwriter) Jeff Porcaro in a reportedly $30 million deal.
New York City-headquartered Primary Wave recently unveiled the multimillion-dollar purchase via a formal release, which was emailed to DMN. The estate of Hartford-born Jeff Porcaro, who passed away in 1992, entrusted 15-year-old Primary Wave with the four-time Grammy winner’s recorded and publishing catalogs, as mentioned, including master royalties from “all” the albums that he released as part of Toto.

The ultra-active session musician Porcaro appeared on Toto’s initial eight studio albums and co-authored “Stranger in Town” (1984), a number of tracks on the soundtrack for 1984’s Dune, and the initially highlighted “Africa” (1982), which enjoyed renewed commercial success following a 2018 cover from Weezer.

Great. But smoking anything* (other than a rack of ribs) is absolutely gross.

*including the “wonder” plant
