HeyJude, at the May 1990 Mikeless show I saw in Atlanta, both Al and Jeff co-sang a lot of Mike's leads. Matt Jardine covered the falsettos, and Gerry Beckley helped fill in the harmonies. They also did "Sister Goldenhair."

Mods, could someone please merge this thread with the first one on the same topic? Thank you.

Enjoy the potential sequel album ideas in this story:

I noticed the photo of the album in this article does not have the blue circle with the BB logo at the bottom of it, so I suspect the blue circle is actually a sticker.

Edit: Here's the image link:

Yes, this one sucks. One on my list of artists I still hadn't seen in concert -- and now I can't.  Cry

RIP, Tom -- hope you're jamming with Carl Wilson, George Harrison, and Roy Orbison tonight.

I have the Wild Honey CD, just couldn't wait for the US release. Over the years, I've gotten it signed by Brian, Carl, Mike, Al, and Bruce.

Glad to hear that Bruce is OK!
8  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Roger Williams University to Honor The Beach Boys on Sept. 21 on: September 21, 2017, 09:32:21 AM
For Rhode Islands fans, no time given for this event, but it's today:

Press Release:
On Thursday, September 21, 2017, The Beach Boys are being honored by Roger Williams University for a significant historic event in their career -- the band's concert on September 22, 1971 at The Ramada Inn in Portsmouth, RI. The concert was the first-ever appearance of Ricky Faatar and Blondie Chaplin to the band, essentially changing The Beach Boys' recording and live act's line-up into a multi-racial group and shifted the band into an important creative period, of which shortly thereafter Rolling Stone Magazine would name them 'Band of the Year.' On hand will be Grammy Award-winning Beach Boys producer-engineer Rob Fraboni (who helped guide and shape the band's masterpiece 'Holland,' the creative high point of this amazing era for the band) as the guest of honor. Big Noise's Al Gomes and Connie Watrous are helping to produce the event for the university which will unveil plaques at the site of the 1971 concert, now the Baypoint Inn & Conference Center, host a special 'Beach Boys-themed dinner' in the dining hall, and transform the outer reaches of the hall into a beach party for guests.

Location: 144 Anthony Road, Portsmouth, RI 02893, 401-254-7300

Both Carl and Geoerge at one time entertained the idea of becoming helicopter pilots.

Not that far off in Carl's case. He had an avid interest in flying and even had a subscription to Aviation Week.

TWGMTR, because it's the Beach Boys. TLOS is good too.

Just found this thread -- sending prayers out for Billy and everyone affected by this terrible storm.

God, how I wish I could attend a live show that featured Carl along with the rest of the original band.

Me too! I often wonder if Carl's voice would have held up as well as Al's has over the years.

Sigh... I still miss Carl.

Did anybody notice the article's vintage photo of Mike, with Carl on the phone in the background? Whoever wrote the caption to that photo has mistaken Carl for Brian.

Great interview. It's so good to see Brian in a lively mood. I love that entire interchange between Brian and Alan.

This little tidbit caught my eye:
"...Wilson has performed 165 shows in 24 countries, with more dates being added into 2018."

Atlanta in 2018, please!

And this one is classic Brian:
"I honestly don't know what happened," Wilson says in his dressing room, with a shrug and a soft smile. "I thought I was gonna hang it up. But then I changed my mind. I said, 'What am I gonna do? Sit around and watch TV? No way!' Nothin' was really happening back in L.A., so I figured I might as well go tour. I just said, 'Well, f**k it, I might as well get off my ass and tour.' So I got off my ass and toured."

 Listening

I used to have "Carl's Big Chance" playing in the background of my answering machine message years ago.

That would have to be Deanna Martin, then. She's the performer.

I agree, and sometime well before 2043, please!

Glen wasn't with the band long enough to become an official Beach Boy, he's more like a close associate.

His passing, while not unexpected, is still a great loss to music.

Sorry to hear this.

Just found this article in the newsfeed, chock full of errors:

http://www.montrosepress.com/national/entertainment/the-beach-boys-queen-and-foo-fighters-version-of-holy/article_4b94fcfc-2663-524e-a06b-edb595fade24.html

THE BEACH BOYS, QUEEN AND FOO FIGHTERS' VERSION OF "HOLY MAN" BARRED FROM RELEASE
By Celebretainment
Aug. 8, 2017

A reworked Beach Boys song featuring members of Queen and Foo Fighters has been blocked from being released following a legal dispute.

The supergroup have been working on updating 'Holy Man', which was co-written by late Beach Boys member Dennis Wilson and his lead singer brother Brian, 75.

Dennis' co-writer Stephen Kalinich is the only person who was able to hear the song in its original form and he claims he hasn't had access to it for more than three decades.

The 'Little Bird' drummer tragically drowned at Marina Del Rey in 1983, and the track has been stored away in a vault ever since.

The original music was created by the 'Good Vibrations' hitmakers in 1974, and the rough tape was sent to Queen's guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor and the US rockers.

A source said: "The song is in a vault and nobody can do anything about it.

"It's such a shame as there will clearly be a huge demand for it."

Dennis's co-writer Stephen says it is "such a shame" that no one will be able to get their ears on the "six-minute masterpiece" because of the law.

He told The Sun newspaper: "It's over six minutes long and it's a masterpiece, but we've never been able to release it because we can't get the legalities worked out. Such a shame.

"People hear it and, honest to God, it brings tears to their eyes."

Foo Fighters' drummer Taylor Hawkins recorded vocals on their version and Stephen says he sounded just like Dennis with "the same gravelly, whisky voice".

He added: "Taylor sent the track to Brian May and he and Roger Taylor fell in love with it. They spent weeks fooling around with it, putting on vocals and some incredible percussive things."

Stephen, would you be interested in doing an interview with BBFC about recording with the Beach Boys? Thanks in advance.
