And Toto Too?

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Remember the band Toto? Their big hits were "Africa" and "Rosanna" (about band member girlfriend Rosanna Arquette). But we digress. Of course you don't remember Toto. Their dated, post-Steely Dan overproduced studio snoozers will make you glad it's hard to find their music in 2006.

Still we cannot resist this video. It's almost entirely Toto on the roof of a building in downtown LA, circa 1986. The skyline is somewhat similar, and we think the building is south of Wilshire. But where exactly are they? Can you tell?

We think this one is harder than the Bradbury Building.
