Really great interview, guys.  Carnie is such a down-to-earth, regular person.  Gotta give Marilyn credit for raising her well under challenging circumstances.  She clearly also inherited her father's sense of humor and sweet disposition.
It made me sad, though, to hear her make oblique references to missing Brian and not being able to see him because of "what's going on around him" or something along those lines.  Not sure what all that's about, but it's troubling.

Yes it is, but we don't dare speak about that here.

Pretty sure weíve had several posts about it here.

Without more information, though, thereís not much to write about.

Seriously, quit being a troll. If you donít like it here go elsewhere where youíd probably be more welcome (unless someone has a bad day )

Well, none of us really want to deal with the idea of Brian not touring anymore, as it's simply another reminder that we're at the far end of the road and all that. So maybe it's a good thing to lay low and hope for a pleasant surprise rather than dwelling on things that are clearly out of our control...

Kudos to the guys for a great interview. Carnie is totally genuine, and she's always been very free and honest with her emotions, and she clearly feels deeply--all of that was manifested in the interview. I hope the guys will have her on again as soon as feasible, as it was really a breath of fresh air. An off-topic but peripherally related project she's been involved in--a documentary about Karen Carpenter--is starting to appear at film festivals this month, and I think she might appreciate the opportunity to talk about it (she was one of the executive producers and, owing to her status as a major fan of Karen's voice, is prominently featured in the film's many interview segments).

And folks on Instagram should indeed follow her feed--@carnie68--which is also quintessentially her. As she said: music, food and family!  :3d

As others have pointed out, several other threads have some relatively frank discussions about what is or may be going on with Brian these days.

I think the kind of gradual realization of Brian's shape out on tour last year dictated that the fan community kind of just slowly but steadily all (or mostly, aside from those living under a rock/in a bubble) just realized without any kind of announcement that Brian's probably done touring. Whether that precludes any sort of single performances, or other non-touring musical activity, that is somewhat less clear, because we don't know the precise reasons why Brian had such a downturn last year. We do now have an answer as to whether Brian is up to making any public appearances at all, as he did appear at the Grammy thing the other night.

I mean, there's a bit of a vacuum as far as information right now. I think the question of whether Brian is going to tour more is relatively easily answerable based on last year's tour and the lack of activity since then. The *precise* reason for Brian's current shape is not as clear, and that's where trying to prognosticate much beyond that is difficult. I'm sure I as well as some other fans have heard some things, and I think it's a testament to the love and admiration for Brian from his fans that fans have somehow found a way to be kind of measured and not histrionic about what's going on with Brian. Time will tell whether things end up getting stirred up more in the fan community. A lot of that depends on what if anything we see or hear of Brian, obviously.

And, we may not hear much of anything. And *maybe* that's okay. I think some sort of information or indication *at some point* for fans is probably a good idea. And, it may speak to the kind of catch-all, non-specific nature of what's going on with Brian that nobody including Brian and his team know exactly what the future holds.

By the way, it appears that Carnie has gotten her wish to see her dad. She was sitting behind him in the box at the Grammy salute. Just before I Get Around the camera panned over to the box and you could see Carnie lean forward and tap Brian on the shoulder.

I just checked out the video of I Get Around on You Tube, and froze the beginning a few times...I don't think that was Carnie, doesn't really look a lot like her, though a bit of a resemblance. Could that be one of Brian's adopted daughters possibly?

Agreed.  I did a freeze-frame as well.  Woman appears significantly younger than Carnie.   Could be Daria or one of the other kids... or an assistant.

Havenít seen it, but my money would be on it being Daria.

Itís near the beginning. Looks like Carnie to me. Daria wears glasses.

Dang! I just freeze-framed it and now it looks like Sarah Huckabee Sanders.  :lol :lol :lol Sarah's pretty busy nowadays, though, so I doubt she'd have time to attend a Beach Boys tribute. Also, Carnie doesn't have any posts about it on her Instagram feed, which is very unusual for her. Either she was there and was told not to post about it, or she wasn't there.

Definitely not Carnie in that video behind Brian.
