1  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Dennis on REELZ TV on: March 25, 2017, 10:42:36 AM


But then he also said, "Of all the Beach Boys, Dennis was the only one who actually surfed." I have read various accounts through the years where Mike, Al and Bruce also surfed. Perhaps nowhere near the level and proficiency of Dennis, but Mike recently said Bruce still surfs. Hey, Still Surfin'... they should write a song about... nevermind.


There's a difference between going surfing a couple of times and actually being a surfer, I guess. Dennis was the only one who was actually taken as authentic by the surf community.
Bruce was (and still is) of course also a surfer. But he's not an original Beach Boy. The story of Dennis being the only surfer in the group focuses on the original 5/6 guys.

Thanks for the link!
Although I am a little unsatisfied with what they say about the Beach Boys band, I think for a TV show this was good. It brings Dennis (and hopefully his music) into people's minds and also his tragic story.

This really is not meant tactlessly, but Dennis' death alone and the days leasing up to it would probably make an interesting movie. There's so much drama. It took me years to realize that him diving and coming up with old keepsakes was what actually did happen and not just a movie dramatization. And that whole sad ending to such a vibrant personality.

It's ok. Nice to hear something new. I wonder if it's his son singing that one verse

Chorus ain't bad.



Certainly inspired by Big Joe Turner's "Roll 'em, Pete".

But the majority of people today have no idea who Chuck Berry is, and that's a damn crime. People like Chuck(and Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Fats Domino Bo Diddly, etc) should be taught in school.


When I hear the sh!t that people who actually should know about it (I mean generally, not necessarily "on this board") are uttering, then I'd rather have everyone find out on his/her own instead of getting "schooled" on it.

The last album he did, Rockit, 1979, was pretty good. The songs were good, but the production felt a little too smooth or polished, but that's how a lot of music sounded in 1979.


It's a ok album all in all imo. But honestly I can't listen to it in one sitting. The opener "Move it" is great and the sound fits very well. But after the third one it's over and I have to stop. Also some of the songs are not up to par.

After the sad news of Chuck's passing here's some nice news:


“Since Chuck’s passing on Saturday, the Berry family has received many inquiries from friends, fans and media about the status of his forthcoming album CHUCK, which was originally announced on his 90th birthday, 18 October, 2016.

“Working to prepare the release of this record in recent months and in fact over the last several years brought Chuck a great sense of joy and satisfaction. While our hearts are very heavy at this time, we know that Chuck had no greater wish than to see this album released to the world, and we know of no better way to celebrate and remember his 90 years of life than through his music.

“For months now plans have been in place, and preparations have been made with our friends at Dualtone Records, to reveal further details and music from the album this week. As a tribute to Chuck Berry, and with gratitude to his fans around the world, we will be following through on those plans in the coming days.

The Chuck Berry Family.”

I haven't watched the latest episode yet, but as of yet I'm not too fond of this series. It just doesn't work. The actors mostly seem like a they don't know a thing about their characters. And I'm thankful for every moment "Elvis" isn't in a scene. That one - more than any other - is an embarrassment imo, followed by "Johnny Cash".
Has anyone else watched this? What are your thoughts?

rab2591, did you find something interesting?





On another note, the legendary James Cotton passed away. He also started out with Sam and Sun Records:

IIRC this comes from the EH documentary. And Alan Boyd wrote (somewhere in his thread) that this is home movie footage. Something like that. Same goes for the open air Sail On Sailor section in the same doc.

Does anyone still has the video lying around of the Beach Boys """""recording"""" Shelter with Brian directing them? i remember this airing at some show during the TWGMTR promo era, you see the guys doing the prechorus harmonies (or pretending, i think) in studio
You mean the one with Brian and Mike recording their vocals? That was "Spring Vacation".


There was also one of the webisodes with footage of Brian in the control room and the Boys at the mic doing "Shelter". I don't have it here. But I guess you can find it on some official youtube channel

EIT:

It's probably here somewhere:

Well, as of yet, the series is not what I had hoped it would be. It's ok for some entertainment if you have nothing else to do. Especially the way some characters (in fact most of them) are portrayed is disappointing. And it seems like none of the actors gets their character. There is no connection between actor and character. Only superficial TV acting (in not such a good sense). Let's wait and see what it will evolve to.
