1  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Manson Dead on: Today at 08:12:38 AM
Stumbled upon this documentary on youtube about him:


20/20 Truth and Lies : The Family Manson - MAY 13, 2017 (SPECIAL)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wB5u5oUwu8I




Kinda ironic that it's called 20/20

It features footage from this shot and also Brian and Mike at the piano demonstrating the new song.






3) Brian seems very paranoid and mentally sick during his interview, which breaks my heart. Constantly talking about being scared.



Brian definitely doesn't behave like he was in a good situation healthy-wise. Thanks he's so much better today

Yeah, I agree with that. It's just good to see he's so much better now. And then to think that there are people who say that Brian is in the same situation only with Melinda in place of Landy....  Roll Eyes

Just in case you haven't seen it and are interested, our member The Real Barnyard just posted the following in the Pro-Shot-Concert-List thread. Mike & Bruce two days ago, professionally filmed. And they play "Unleash the love" near the end. Maybe more, but I haven't watched it




The last 90 minutes of this video include The Beach Boys performance at the American Airlines Sky Ball XV Gala in Dallas. November 11, 2017.

Amazing sound and performance!

Ah, thanks! So it's nothing serious, he's just not using this board much. Good to know.
10  Smiley Smile Stuff / Welcome to the Smiley Smile board / Has anyone heard from Steve Mayo? on: November 10, 2017, 01:19:31 PM
From time to time Steve and I messaged each other, especially for birthdays and he always was quickly responding. I wrote him in 2016 and he never replied which seemed unusual. Seems he hasn't been on this board since that time. Does anybody know if he's allright? He seemed to be such a nice person with good taste in music.
11  Smiley Smile Stuff / The Beach Boys Media / Re: The *official* Brian/BB picture thread on: November 09, 2017, 07:12:40 AM
Thanks guys! Brian does indeed look skinny, but his face looked to me like 90s-Brian and I thought Carl looked older than he did in the 80s. But I trust you more than my judgement on this.

My two cents: I think "Still cruisin'" is a very good album and it's new songs all sound like they could've been hits to me. I think "Somewhere near Japan" is a great song and it being about drugs is something that a band that had the status of the Beach Boys totally could've gotten away with. It's not like all succesful pop songs of that time were about fun-in-the-sun. It's beatifully produced and the vocals are very strong.
If you take "Still cruisin'" "Somewhere near Japan" "Island girl" "In my car" "Make it big" and "Kokomo" and then add some other new songs I think it would've made for a very good 80s Beach Boys album. Or maybe "California dreamin'", which didn't appear on any album before, and "Don't fight the sea" and you'd have a cool Beach Boys album that's mostly Mike-central.

I actually like Still Cruisin' as well. Is it anywhere near their best (or even their very good) stuff? No. But every song is enjoyable, though "Wipe Out" is a bit much (this coming from a huge hip-hop fan). Though I do have to say, I do like hearing Brian do the falsetto on there. But regardless, I enjoy "Still Cruisin'", "Island Girl", "Make It Big" and "In My Car" a lot. And I wonder if Brian singing "still cruisin' after all these years" on "In My Car" was merely coincidence or whether that was a purposeful tie in with Mike's song and the album title.



That's exactly something I also wondered about. But it gives the selection some kind of connection if not a theme.


Regarding "Still cruisin'" and "The mountain's high", I guess Mike certainly knew the song. I'd read that Dick&DeeDee toured with the Beach Boys and that the song was a big hit in San Francisco. But I wouldn't call it a theft. Back in the 60s cases like this were all over the music scene. You take one part of another record and build your own song around it. "Amusement Parks U.S.A." "The girl from New York City" even "Help me Ronda" and others could also fall under that description. That's the way it was back then and no one seemed to have a problem with that. So I guess that is where Mike's (or Terry Melcher; whoever came up with it) coming from. In the more modern years (probably from the 80s onwards $$) it might actually be something you would call a rip-off. But then we'd have to call Brian's "Gettin' in over my head" (Little Anthony & The Imperials' Going out of my head ) a rip-off even more so. I guess with "Still cruisin'" - since it's mostly just the rhythm and you can't patent rhythm and chords - nowadays you would call it a "sample" maybe. There seems to be no question on my mind though that "Still cruisin'" took it's rhythm from "The mountain's high"

Just saw this picture on youtube (it's a screenshot). Doesn anyone have more infos about this? I don't remember seeing it before. 1995/6?

That said "Island Girl" does borrow parts of the melody from 'The Tide is High" by Blondie.



-> Buddy Holly's "Everyday"

16  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Fats Domino RIP on: November 05, 2017, 03:07:14 AM
I found it on youtube. Elvis in 1970 introducing Fats. After that Elvis' 1957 studio recording of "Blueberry hill" (it has it's charme but it sounds more like a impromptu version -  also this seems to be an alternate version and not the master take), and then Fats' recording of "Love me" with an live dedication to Elvis (I don't know where the live part comes from and if he also played "Love me" after that comment)


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=54sVT4CtmEM


And this:

Music legend Fats Domino turns 88 remembering Elvis Presley

https://www.axs.com/news/music-legend-fats-domino-turns-88-remembering-elvis-presley-77005






My parents saw him live at Tipitina’s in 2007 when he played his first concert after Katrina, which also happened to be his last concert ever. If you Google “Fat’s Domino - Walkin’ Back to New Orleans” you will see this last concert. It still amazes me that at age 79, his voice still sounded exactly as it did on the original records.


Here's the "Walkin' back to New Orleans" documentary:

ca. 1963
I think this was a picture that was very dear to Fats. I remember after Katrina he bemoaned his grand piano and a picture of himself and Elvis getting destroyed.

The last two come from Presley's press conference after his very first show after his movie phase, in 1969. So it seems that Fats was part of the invitation-only audience.

Great pictures, Rocker. What a shame Fats lost that one (and the grand).

I wonder if Fats can be seen in that show...



I don't think it was filmed. Although there are rumours that TV station footage might exist.
18  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Fats Domino RIP on: November 04, 2017, 04:37:58 AM
Everybody loved the Fat Man....funny, I was listening to Elvis Radio on Sirius the day before Fats died, and they played an old clip of Elvis introducing himself at a concert appearance at the International Hotel (think that is right? anyway a Vegas hotel) to the audience as "hello, I'm Fats Domino", which received some laughter.  I figured perhaps Fats was in the audience....kinda eerie to hear the next day that he had passed on....I think "Walkin' to New Orleans" was my favorite....


Yeah, the International. It later beacme the Hilton, I believe around 1971.
Fats and Elvis were friendly. There's a recording from 1970 of Elvis introducing Fats to the audience and mentioning how many gold records Fats had. From time to time he introduced himself as other people, including Fats.

25  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Elvis Presley - update: HBO doc, Tom Petty, Bruuuuce on: October 28, 2017, 02:14:17 AM
You know what? I'll change the topic title and make this a Presley thread for all news etc. I think that is better than to start a new thread everytime something that doesn't totally fit the description. The title can be changed everytime something new comes into focus.

I'm saying this because I wasn't sure about where I should post this new information, since I started a thread about the HBO documentary as well as this one about the 40th anniversary of his death.
So, a member of the FECC forum posted this information that he got from a Q&A with Priscilla Presley:


Spring of 2018. Narrated by Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty. 4 hours and shown in 2 parts.

I guess this is some the last work Tom Petty did  Sad



A little trivia:
When Elvis was filmimg "Follow that dream" in Florida, Tom Petty got to meet Elvis:


Tom Petty's love for rock 'n' roll began the day he met Elvis in Ocala
