from Billy Hinsche's facebook:

This just in: sad to report that former Beach Boys' manager and lyricist, Jack Rieley, passed away in Berlin last Friday. His credits include co-writing "Long Promised Road" and "Feel Flows" with Carl Wilson and writing the lyrics for my own solo single "Music is Freedom." He was tremendously supportive of my documentary film, DENNIS WILSON FOREVER, and debuted it on his flasher.com website, for which I am very grateful. So long, Jack, and thanks for being such a good friend ...

Jack Rieley was a very important player in the early 1970's resurgence of the Beach Boys. In my opinion he really understood what the Beach Boys were all about at that time.

I can't conceive of what might have happened to the Beach Boys without Jack's presence and influence. There would be a huge portion of quality missing, and far fewer people might have discovered and learned to appreciate the band. A very underappreciated figure in their history. RIP.

Thanks for the collab on "A Day in the Life of a Tree".  Such a beautiful, idiosyncratic song.

Thanks for the info, Ed.  I can't say I got to know him as you and Billy did, but wish him peace.  He always had an interesting perspective.

Perhaps Brian will dedicate Sail on Sailor to his memory. 

Maybe we can hope that Brian, or Mike's Beach Boys, adds Long Promised Road and Feel Flows into the setlist as a tribute also.

Game changer. His band intros alone, during those great early 70's college shows, were a clear marker that this was a new era for the Beach Boys.

An amazing guy that leaves behind quite a legacy.

I've read a few personal accounts of his time with the band, and he was always a fascinating study. Wish he wrote a book about that period, but then again - he always seemed to maintain a dignified silence (unless the subject of the Lovester came up).  Wink

RIP Jack. In that period of time, you really were Superman .

From my point the best thing that ever happened to the Beach Boys after Derek Taylor. Sad to hear this. R.I.P.

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

This is so heart breaking. I was just thinking about him late last night wishing he would write a book.

On another note, does anybody have a working link to the 2 part interview that used to be on the internet somewhere?

I’m sad to hear about Jack Rieley passing away last Friday. Jack was our manager in the early 1970s and helped us a lot. He wrote the lyrics for “A Day in the Life of a Tree” which blew me away. I also had Jack sing the lead on that one because his voice seemed to fit the song. Jack was a real force on our “Surf’s Up” and “Holland” albums and I’ll always remember his kindness. My thoughts go out to Jack’s family and friends.
 - Love and Mercy, Brian  <<
