David's birthday -- couldn't they at least wait for Al's?

I hope you get another chance to see Al's show, NOLA BB Fan -- it's worth it.

It's a good one, one of Carl's best guest vocals. I got exposed to "Baby Says No" by a former housemate decades ago who was a Christopher Cross fan.

A more favorable list for the BBs (oddly in reverse order):

HOT 100 TURNS 60! THE TOP 60 DUOS/GROUPS OF ALL TIME, FROM THE BEATLES TO MAROON 5 & MORE
by Xander Zellner
August 2, 2018
The Fab Four, The Rolling Stones & Bee Gees rank at Nos. 1, 2 & 3, respectively.

As we celebrate the Billboard Hot 100's 60th anniversary, Billboard looks at the top-performing duos and groups in the chart's history, dating to its Aug. 4, 1958, inception.   

With a record 20 Hot 100 No. 1s, logged between 1964 and 1970, it should come as no surprise that The Beatles are the No. 1 duo or group, as well as the top act overall. 

The quartet's biggest Hot 100 hit, "Hey Jude," spent nine weeks at No. 1 beginning on Sept. 28, 1968, and ranks at No. 12 on the recap of the chart's all-time top 600 songs. The group is the only act to ever occupy the entire top five of the Hot 100 in a week, having achieved the feat on April 4, 1964, with, in order from Nos. 1 to 5, "Can't Buy Me Love," "Twist and Shout," "She Loves You," "I Want to Hold Your Hand" and "Please Please Me."     

Rounding out the top five duos/groups ranking from Nos. 2 through 5, respectively, are The Rolling Stones, Bee Gees, Chicago and The Supremes. At No. 6 is the top-performing duo, Daryl Hall and John Oates. 

Just outside the top 10 is the highest-ranking act whose chart career began in the 2000s: Maroon 5, at No. 11. The Adam Levine-led group's latest hit, "Girls Like You," featuring Cardi B, currently stands at its No. 3 high on the Hot 100. The band has tallied 14 top 10s, including three No. 1s.   

Here's a look at the top-performing duos and groups over the Hot 100's first 60 years.

[...]

10. Carpenters
9. The Beach Boys
8. The Temptations
7. The Four Seasons
6. Hall & Oates
5. The Supremes
4. Chicago
3. Bee Gees
2. The Rolling Stones
1. The Beatles

The Top 60 Duos/Groups of All-Time on the Billboard Hot 100 ranking is based on weekly performance on the Hot 100 from its Aug. 4, 1958, inception through July 21, 2018. All songs are ranked based on an inverse point system, with cumulative weeks at No. 1 earning the greatest value and weeks at lower spots earning the least. Due to changes in chart methodology over the years, eras are weighted differently to account for chart turnover rates over various periods. Artists are then ranked based on a formula blending performance, as outlined above, of all their Hot 100 chart entries.

They could have all worn matching "Beach Boys Family Reunion" t-shirts instead!  LOL

Where's Bruce -- on the end next to David?

There's a thread on bw.com to select a question to ask Brian at today's gathering.

How long did it take for Bruce Johnston to go back on tour after his bypass surgery?

It was the Four Seasons' response to "Surfers Rule."

As much as I like that song, July is WAY too early for Christmas music, imo.
17  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Everyone back together for a Beach Boys Q&A for Sirius XM? on: July 26, 2018, 06:03:14 AM
I'd like to see them do "Add Some Music."

Wonder if I can get another Sirius free trial...

The Glastonbury rumors were started by a British tabloid writer speculating about who might play there next year and then asked Mike if he was interested.

Plus side: Interviews with David Marks, Jon Stebbins, Bobby Figueroa, and Peter Ames Carlin.

Down side: Pretty much everything else, most especially the tabloid approach, and over-playing the Brian as cash cow approach. They played fast and loose with the timeline, scrambling events at times. They seemed to be implying that the group broke up when Dennis died, instead of when Carl died. (Yes, I know some of you feel they functionally ended with Dennis...) Agree about the re-enactments, they stunk. I also feel that Al was unfairly treated in this show.

Subscribers only.

But that is a very nice pic of Al!

Maybe the poster meant he had assistants helping him walk to the piano?
23  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Who was the second best songwriter in the Beach Boys? on: July 11, 2018, 05:39:29 AM
Dennis, definitely.

IIRC, Billy was offered membership, but declined.

July 15th show has been cancelled "due to logistical issues."
