Debbie KL......she not only has first-hand experience with the Beach Boys, she also has a very honest and balanced way of conveying her thoughts.  Often the voice of reason in some heated exchanges!   I could pick her brain for hours  :)

I'll happily second that emotion! Hope we get to cross paths someday.  :)

Stephen Desper. The Stephen Desper thread in the 'Honored Guests' sub-forum is the greatest section on any music related forum. He delves into topics, takes the time to answer questions with detailed responses. I can imagine just sitting down for a lunch with him would be an experience not easily forgotten.

None of the Big Names. Being by nature hopelessly shy and retiring (in more ways than one) I would not know how to cope with them----unless they were paying, of course.

I hope one of the ladies picks me (in your dreams, john k) but right now I would like to spend a day with unreleased backgrounds. We could discuss music and drink beer. And then I could ask what on earth induced him to change his name, avatar and signature to please delete my account. :lol

Wow - I'd happily meet any of the people who'd like to meet me, and probably some who wouldn't   ;D

As far as banned board members, probably not.  I picture Mike's Beard or SJS lurking in a corner, creeping me out, or Cam trying to sell me a sign or worse, some of his convoluted nonsense, or FdP trying to sell me that she's a Democrat.  :lol - too exhausting.

I've had chats with certain members here, or actual visits and love them all.  Those I know by phone (you know who you are), I'd like to meet.  Craig for sure.  I'd love to see Steve Desper again after all these years - oops decades.  I'm wanting to meet Thorgil in a big way - name the place and time - anywhere on the planet.

Oh crap, I know I've left out several cool people.

Thanks, that really means a lot to me! Unless you're talking about another Scott that also posts his own mixes of Beach Boys songs  :)

Previous jokes aside, for me, there are just so many great people to choose from! The_Beach, Stephen W. Desper, bryand, Banana, Mujan (RIP) and jackjachman are only a few members that I'd love to meet for a day!

You guys might be talking about members you'd like to hang out with, but I've recently spent an entire February's worth of time with Bubbly Waves.

He's the only one I've met in person. I'd probably enjoy a day with john k or the captain, too.

I would be curious to meet any of the active members of the board, for a variety of reasons.
Obviously, there's Brian Wilson himself. That would be number one. Though I guess he doesn't qualify as an active member.
There are those that have "inside knowledge". Of those, I would love most to spend some time with Debbie KL, not only because of her BB knowledge but because I think she seems like a someone I'd be very interested in as a conversationalist in general.
The next person with "inside knowledge" I'd like to meet would be Stephen Desper - he's worked closely with all the Beach Boys and knows the recording side of things, not just the personalities; he's very forthcoming and seems like a nice guy.
But I'd also really like to meet a number of other people: a lot of the threads in the sandbox and "other music" reveal people with a wide variety of interests from whom I could learn a lot. There's a lot of humor here. And a lot of intelligence. And a lot of talent.
Honestly, anyone in this thread would be someone I'd be glad to spend a day with.

I'd be ok with the things I didn't strike out. I know you're a newer member, but your posts in the General Music Discussion subforum have been appreciated :).

But really, if you guys ever have the chance to meet up with a fellow member, do it.

I hail from the city that propelled grunge into popularity, yet I still can't get into it. To each his/her own, though! :)

That's sort of a cool thing about meeting up with board members: we all have some overlaps in music tastes, but we also listen to stuff that no one else listens to. So it's a great way of exposing each other to new artists.

Yeah, sorry, M. Chronic lack of self-confidence on my part, I'm afraid. I'm hopeless at one-to-one stuff in real time.

But the little group you mention (you, Bubs and the captain) would be a real treat. I'll bring the Merlot red. ;D

Or the whole bang shoot at a convention (there are so many others I'd be fascinated to meet, not least feelsflow and RR). That would be very cool as well.

As for this topic being moved to the Sandbox: of course----it's where it belongs. But DonnyL and c-man would never have posted in it if it hadn't started life where it did.

In any case, a great feel-good thread, thanks wilsonart1 for starting it. About my "OSD" response: I decided on a half-joke (half because I'd really like to meet the Legendary OSD!), because my real answer would have included many people, starting rather obviously from Debbie and Ray.
About meeting Brian himself... I confess feeling unworthy. I'd be even more transfixed than when I met the living legend of celtic music, Alan Stivell.

P.S.
And this thread confirms my theory that the board is healthier and friendlier than ever! :)

Well, the question is "for a day". To travel big distance to meet anybody from Smiley for just a day, then go back - nope, can't see doing this. That said, would like to meet Al in Big Sur (he doesn't post but "Matt J" does).

Billy, I'm thinking that you could make it to NOLA fairly easily, and we could convince RRA1 (and other international travelers) that this place is worth a trip from Russia - seriously!  There is no other place quite like it anywhere - a bit of France, Cajun, Voodoo, USofA, Italian Immigrants, German Immigrants - it's weirdly beautiful, it knows how to party every day, and the music and food are superb.  I'm thinking a week there, or checking out a US entry point city would really be worth the trip.  Whaddya' think RRA1 and others?

Wow, a BW meetup in New Orleans!
The end of March has somewhat "cooler" weather, and everything should still be blooming.
One caveat - just heard a commercial on a local radio station about this concert, so I'm anticipating the tickets going very quickly.
The presale starts tomorrow - is a code needed? Have never attempted to get tickets via presale before.

These were my thoughts. If I named names, I'd leave someone really good out, so I avoided that except BW, DKL and S Desper.

So, I think we'd need to plan waaaay in advance because of vacation time, travel arrangements, etc. but if anyone's actually interested, maybe we should start a list of where people live (I could compile it via PMs if people aren't comfortable publishing their locations, or we could just do it on a thread) and then once that's clear, start discussing locations (based on what I expect to be a globalness, it may end up being two places.)

Thoughts?

So what began as a "just imagine" topic has since moved into the realms of real time. Which throws other more practical aspects into the mix----the opportunity, the money, the geographical distance, even the inclination...

It's possible that some folks, given the opportunity (to say nothing of the money) to travel, say, to the States, would have had another long-cherished wish on their list for years, maybe decades, that would quite simply come first.

Don't want to burst no bubbles (no pun intended). Just saying...

Keeping ^that^ in mind, I'd  choose a day with Domenic Priore (did he ever post here?) and Bill Tobelman - remember them? For a grand guided siteseeing tour of all the SMiLE hotspots now 50 years after! Maybe they wouldn't see eye to eye on all issues. but that's part of the fascination-  Followed by an anniversary SMiLE convention attended by a host of SMiLE buffs & brass!

So what began as a "just imagine" topic has since moved into the realms of real time. Which throws other more practical aspects into the mix----the opportunity, the money, the geographical distance, even the inclination...

It's possible that some folks, given the opportunity (to say nothing of the money) to travel, say, to the States, would have had another long-cherished wish on their list for years, maybe decades, that would quite simply come first.

Don't want to burst no bubbles (no pun intended). Just saying...
Not unexpected. People were talking about it, and I thought that if they were serious, I might as well create an organizing structure, but you're quite right - people have limited time and money and have priorities that rank above meeting people from a message board. My far-flung family absorbs my own vacation time.

I'm sorry if moving to the practical killed the previously fun thread!

Agreed about Bill Tobelman. I'm so glad he got credit in the Smile Sessions set. I know some people who used to post here didn't think much of his theories on Smile, but I know a lot of us enjoyed reading those ideas.

I loved that Bill used to piss AGD off without even trying!

Keeping ^that^ in mind, I'd  choose a day with Domenic Priore (did he ever post here?) and Bill Tobelman - remember them? For a grand guided siteseeing tour of all the SMiLE hotspots now 50 years after! Maybe they wouldn't see eye to eye on all issues. but that's part of the fascination-  Followed by an anniversary SMiLE convention attended by a host of SMiLE buffs & brass!
Closer to home, I'd like to meet my pal-pal: john k in Sussex (his old home turf) for a pint and what not! For starters,  I suggest a full english breakfast (preferably organic - yes I'm also that kind of bloke, NOT fanatical, mind!). I know a place for that RIGHT on the East/West Sussex border! After noon we'd take a traditional sunday roast- And later enjoy an afternoon cream tea, served with hot scones.  As a night treat, why not enjoy a slice of blue cheese with all the trimmin's before we bid farewell! What happens between meals? I'd leave that up to jk!

I have hung out with Domenic and he is every bit as opinionated in person as he was in print. Plus the guy  wears his passions on his sleeve, which is a good thing.

Nobody. That said, of people mentioned, Bill Tobelman indeed. Maybe Newguy562, to add banned. & Lillie/musicismylife101, to add member who went/ quit posting. Nice girl.
If not them, see the "Nobody" bit. With/ without me, such meeting wouldn't make even tiniest difference, I wouldn't add any extra fun to the other people's fun, friendly personalities.

Regrettably the person on this board I would most like to meet for a day was kicked off it. So I agree with you, RR. ;)

My original message in this post was said in jest. This one is serious.

I'd probably have to join the queue of fans and wait patiently for my day but it would be worth any wait just to meet aeijtzsche.
