i tried to watch it but when it got to goin to India with The Beatles i turned it off.. Mike has a script thats about 25 yrs yrs and runnin.. There is nothing new  to learn from him anymore.. The best thing i can say about Mike is he now over the last few years has put together the best version of his band.. Its NOT the Beach Boys but they do play and sing well.. I saw them summer of 2016 at Pala casino..  I was impressed.. Its not BW band but it will do..

Thank you and thanks to a great board that i could state my feelings about our friend.. Dennis Wilson.. RIP

Im sure Dennis is in a better place.. DW grew up in a family that went to church and were believers..  He knew right from wrong and a good guy just a little wild in his youth.. He never talked about manson again and was deeply troubled by ever knowing him.. im sure his addictions went out of control from the guilt of knowing him.. I never knew DW but do know about addictions and guilt.. i use my own problems to try to understand DW.. just my take on things..

Yep thats the one.. great stuff inside.. i guess its never been re released is because A+E owns the rights.. Huh

WOW.. 14 shows in 15  days..?? I"d be tired also.. LOL .. Someone needs to tell Mike you cant take all that$$$ with you when you pass on.. Slow down a little and enjoy life.. Get a hobby. !!  Imagine being a roadie and have to hump all that stuff in + out ..Oh my..

YEA.. I have this on vhs..Excellent video.. If i remember right there is some video that is not on any other BB/BW collection.. Worth seeking out.. Ive never seen a dvd of this  anywhere for sale.. But i havent looked around for a few years.

BULLSHIT i agree.. ML always has to bring up BW ups + downs.. No matter how he words it its negative.. for a guy that meditates and is involved with spiritual matters  ML is more  depressed  than BW ever was.. ML re writes the legacy like a politican..
10  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian Wilson - 2018 Tour Thread on: October 24, 2017, 08:55:16 PM
Ya know there is a famous interview with DW back in 70"s that he said the BB will be touring when we get old and in wheel chairs..!!  the previous post reminded me of that interview.. LOL
11  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: The Beach Boys are the only ones who can sing like the Beach Boys on: October 19, 2017, 10:40:01 AM
IMHO.. The Beach Boys are the GREATEST vocal group of the 20th century.. I know im biased but i believe its true.. No other group or vocalist has ever been able to stir my emotions and tears.. PERIOD
12  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Instrument on Adult/Child Tracks on: October 19, 2017, 10:30:30 AM
could it be a flanger or phaser guitar effect..the wilder the sound the more likely its a flanger.. but i dont have the disk in truck to listen too.. just guessing..
13  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian Wilson - 2017 Tour Thread (Pet Sounds - The Final Performances) on: October 17, 2017, 11:31:38 PM
well thanks for the fender update.. Probyn does play one..
14  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Touring Lineup 1971/1972-1974 on: October 16, 2017, 10:43:47 AM
Well it was a long time ago so my feeling is CW played lead on the oldies and mostly using a distortion pedal.. I dont remember Blondie playing much lead except on the newer stuff like SOS + Marcella.. They had a Huge rockin sound back then..His guitar could allways be heard..Bass i cant recall when he played that.. Now in this time period BB played " Jumpin Jack Flash ".. I suspect it was CW + Blondie on that one.. When they played that one it used explode of the stage..

I was at the last show in Costa Mesa Ca.. OUTSTANDING show the best of the 3 ive seen this year.. yes BW look tired and with the heavy touring last couple of years his voice is blown out.. he needs a nice long rest to save his voice.. al and matt sang more leads on PS part of show ..  I looked at the set list from previous message and they didnt do SD  LDC YSGM LHRW.. for the life of me i cant remember what they played instead.. the whole show without intermission was about 2hr 15 min..  and yes BW enjoys the 1st set alot..the new WH songs and susi cincinati were GREAT..!! Probyn is playing a strat 12 string.. fender doesnt make a strat 12 string to my knowledge. so who made it i do not know.  the female that played keyboards was excellent.. she sang played and danced the whole show. also she was grinning from ear to ear the whole show.. she REALLY loves playing in the band and was a joy to watch.  now Blondie is another matter.. he should take his LEAD guitar playing more seriously.  i know he isnt al dimeola or a jeff beck or clapton but he does play well.. on this tour his solos consisted of double picking the e + b string up and down the neck and it sounded like freakin NOISE..  a terrible noise.. very disapointed  Blondie..!! the band was  HOT as usual with LOTS of energy.. overall a GREAT nite of music.. hey Brian go home and rest your voice and it will come back.. GOD bless BW and his band.. and thanks for the MEMORIES..

Oh yes.... JETHRO TULL... I forgot they are NOT in HOF.. Talikng about no justice.. LOL
17  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Opinions On Jeff’s Falsetto? on: October 10, 2017, 09:02:08 PM
i allways thought Jeff had more of a Dean Torrence kind of voice than BW voice. Jeff sounded better being doubled by Taylor Mills back in the day.. Smile comes to mind..

I was at this show and it was OUTSTANDING..!! BW was groovin to the music rockin back and forth like Ray Charles..  One of the very best BB shows i have ever seen. ! The energy from the stage was so beautiful to see and hear..

I dont have the boot handy right now so how many of the songs on the boot have been taken off  this legit release??  Seems like a couple at least because there are a couple of songs i dont recognize. And recording GV ? That better be a GREAT track because isnt that song their most artistic statement.. OH MY.. Well at least he didnt re record Barbara Ann LOL.. Why doesnt he release a live DVD and call it Mike and Bruce and friends..??  If your gonna re record your hits a live DVD would be much better.. Especially with the band he has now.. Ill buy this new cd  tho.
22  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: smile 2018 on: September 28, 2017, 11:41:07 AM
Actually doin all those Wild Honey songs is pretty cool. Seen BW twice this year and missed out on that. Im surprised Country Air hasnt been played..  A favorite of mine. Lots of harmonies.
23  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian Wilson - 2017 Tour Thread (Pet Sounds - The Final Performances) on: September 27, 2017, 11:32:44 PM
GREAT IDEA.. Have an investor fund  a live show and film it.. Al Jardine and friends..With blondie and david.  And BW tour band.. Heck have BW do a guest shot for a couple of songs at end.. Im sure all us fans would buy it...keep the budget tight also.. And what happened to the Mike and Bruce show filmed for austin city limits or something like that.. We talked about it a few years ago.. Anyone ever seen it on TV ?
24  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Pick 3 songs to add to the setlists on: September 27, 2017, 01:30:23 PM
Styx only does a couple of songs written by the departed keyboard player.. Most of the ballads they dont do anymore.. Keyboard player plays all the stuff on his solo tours.. The songs Styx"s plays are all written by the guitar players..  I saw them recently and it was still a good show.. More guitar orientated  less keyboards..

Brian.. Midnites another day.. She says that she needs me.. Sail away..
