Wow, that's a crew cut. ;D Funny how he had his hair cut that short during the year of the summer of love, of all things. The clothes and glasses made up for it, though! :3d

Wow I didn't realise Carl had a Hofner Bass at one point. That organ looks cool as well, a Farfisa Compact by the looks of it.

This appeared in the booklet of "Sunshine tomorrow". I didn't know it before either.

Does anyone know where the Beach Boys got the whole white trousers and blue striped shirts uniform from?

Was it a surfing thing? or a sixties thing?

I'd seen that before and I have a photo of them playing in Germany that same week. Should be noted that he got that haircut while on tour and his hair was longer a week earlier

The German H&V 45 picture sleeve, using a German concert photo also shows Dennis sporting this haircut

I was under the impression it was Murry's idea.

Al looks the coolest as usual. Bruce looks the dorkiest as usual.

Dennis kind of resembles John Lennon with the short hair and specs.
