Title: Any photos of So Tough full lineup? Carl, Al,Brian,Dennis, Ricky,Blondie, Mike?
Post by: monkeytree5 on October 03, 2019, 08:48:55 PM
Are there any photos in existence of Carl, Al, Brian, Dennis, Ricky, Blondie, and Mike? 
Other than the faked one in the gatefold of the LP?

I know Bruce was in the mix for a very brief overlap ... but that would be asking too much.

I figure since no one has responded, that I'll be the one to do so...

As far as we know, there is no photo of Brian, Mike, Al, Carl, Dennis, Blondie and Ricky all together. And definitely not one of all seven of them plus Bruce. The latest first photo we have of the full band in Bruce's first tenure I guess would be this...

Obviously, as one can tell, this is where you get the photo of Brian that was pasted onto the photo of the rest of the guys for the back cover of Carl and the Passions.

Apparently this photo of the "classic five" was also taken the day of that last photo with Bruce...

Now there is indeed a photo of Carl, Dennis, Mike, Al, Bruce, Blondie and Ricky somewhere. All of them on a long sofa or something. It's in one of the books I have somewhere on The Beach Boys, but I haven't any idea which one it'd be in.

Hope this all helps!

Don't remember double posting, but I musta. Sorry!

It's in the David Leaf book.

There's also this one, but without Blondie:

I know a live shot of all the Boys - without Brian - was posted on the BBBritain board but I can't find it online.

The last black and white photo is from the 1970 tour when Blondie and Ricky were still in the flame-and Bruce has a moustache

Yeah, the picture in the Leaf book is from early '72. Also, there are black & white shots from Gran Gala Du Disque in early '72, with Bruce, Blondie, and Ricky, plus Billy.

Al looks like he might not have been keeping it clean here.  ;D

That's awesome! Thanks for responding to the thread everyone.  I've never seen lots of these and the one with Bruce is a hoot!

There are also a few photos of the full early '72 lineup (minus Brian, of course) onstage at Carnegie Hall in March of that year...I've seen them in the pages of ESQ, and I believe here, as well.

Exactly what I was thinking. Brian actually looks more sober, despite the beer can in hand.

To me, Brian just looks worn out from everything he had been through. Perhaps the saddest picture I've seen of him.

Poor Al looks like an anarchist on the gatefold of So Tough.

Have always thought Al wasn’t as ‘clean’ during that period as he has been the bulk of his career? Has he ever spoken about the topic?
