Here's a clip.  Mike is looking frail.

I think these guys are sounding good enough to open for the Beach Boys, and people would eat it up.

Wish The Left Banke would come over to Britain. Would buy tix in a heartbeat....

Great stuff there. Love The Left Banke. What's wrong with Michael Brown anyway?

The man isn't that old (Mike Brown, I mean), so it's surpising to see him needing help getting onstage.  I didn't realize he was in The Stories.  That's quite an evolution from "Pretty Ballerina" to "Brother Louie."

Mike had nothing to do with Brother Louie, by the way

Beyond the chamber-music pop, there are parallels with Brian -- Mike's dad was a troublesome manager that had to be dumped, Mike wanted to stay home and arrange while the other guys toured, Mike had mental health issues. . . .
