Audree's final resting place is in Westwood Cemetery, as is Carl's. Dean Martin's is also there.

I thought Al was referring to a Family and Friends reunion.

... missing Carl and Denny is tough to overcome.

Yep, amen to that sentiment.

Also added a teaser for yet another "Happening" appearance in 1969 which I think will be of interest to fans here. Has anyone seen *that* tape?  Grin

Back when the BBs appeared on "Happening" in 1969, I made a cassette audio tape of that show -- probably not even playable now, if I could find it again.

I wish there was some way to get that show released on DVD/BluRay and digital media, if it even exists on videotape.

Sadly, nowhere near me... I have to say the part about celebrating the music from Surf's Up excites me, tho. Hope that continues beyond the joint tour.

Another greatest hits live show:
Aug. 9 -- Waterloo, NY -- The Vine at del Lago Resort and Casino

For what it's worth, the people running the telecast didn't have much of a sense of who was singing lead at any given time.
11  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian live webcast tonite on: May 04, 2019, 10:09:39 PM
It was a GH show, but they had a very nice block of some of my favorites in the middle, and one or two surprises ("Let Him Run Wild," with Matt on lead, for one). Brian's vocals are still spotty, but the rest of the band sounded great. Glad I got to catch this one!
12  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian Wilson - 2019 Tour Thread on: May 03, 2019, 03:22:44 PM
New date: Aug. 10 -- Fort Wayne, IN -- Embassy Theatre

NOLA BB Fan, where did you see that post?
14  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: The Beach Boys: \ on: April 26, 2019, 03:50:49 PM
I agree that the cheerleaders were ridiculous and unnecessary. And they often blocked my view of the musicians I wanted to see!

I forget to mention that my take on the BBs is that they broke up in early 1998 (and again in late 2012). Family and Friends sounded most like the BBs, of the splinter acts touring at the time. No further comment on the legal mess -- I'll leave that to the rest of you.

And a woman in the backup band, Toni Tenille.
16  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Holy Man Record Store Day on: April 19, 2019, 08:35:05 AM
It's now available on iTunes as well.

New date announced on Al's website:
July 24 -- Derry, NH -- Tupelo Music Hall
18  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Holy Man Record Store Day on: April 15, 2019, 01:20:47 PM
I found one copy left today at a local record shop. (I was out of town and nowhere near any record stores on Saturday.) Now I have to find some way to play this thing, since the turntable is buried under other stuff. But at least I have it!
19  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Dean Torrence joining Mike's band? on: April 07, 2019, 05:09:55 AM
There's a one-off appearance of Dean with Mike & Bruce coming up on May 4th in Oklahoma City. It's a benefit show at The Civic Center Music Hall.

I have a strong dislike for the horror genre, so I won't be seeing Us despite the rave reviews. But I found an interesting article on using "Good Vibes" in the film from Variety:

Jordan Peele’s ‘Us’ Music: How the Beach Boys and N.W.A Came to Anchor a Great Horror Playlist

I do find the choice of one of Carl's song titles for the film more than a bit odd (unless it's meant as a tribute to Carl).

Very sorry to hear this. I'll always be grateful to Peter Tork for his surprise appearance at one of the CWF events:
