PRIMARY WAVE DRUMS UP TOTO

Primary Wave Music has acquired the music publishing catalog and royalties of late Toto drummer and songwriter Jeff Porcaro.

The portfolio includes “Hold the Line,” “I’ll Be Over You,” Grammy-winner “Rosanna” and “Africa,” which has been a streaming sensation over the last six years (among other emanations, Weezer memorably covered it in 2018).

“Being one of the millions of fans to scream the chorus of ‘Africa’ at the top of my lungs on several occasions, this is certainly another thrilling moment in Primary Wave history,” said Adam Lowenberg, PW CMO. "Quite simply, Jeff Porcaro belongs on the Mount Rushmore of great American drummers. We are honored to work with his wife, Susan, and their sons to ensure that his legacy is recognized by generations to come.”
