And Toto Too?

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

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.
