Looks like he's going out of his way to show Mike that he's not looking down... though I believe Dennis invented that move with one of her siblings

Is that the one? Maybe she could feel his lil' deuce coupe.

(clearly the video from Japan from years back of the cheerleader grinding on him has shamed him into including a buffer zone between him and the woman while doing this routine)...

What?! :D Anyone got a clip of that?

Surprisingly legit.

Quote
On 25 February, the Maharishi held a party to celebrate Harrison's 25th birthday. The event included communal chanting,[143] a sitar performance by Harrison,[100] and a firework display.[156][157] The Maharishi gave Harrison an upside-down plastic globe of the world and said: "George, the globe I am giving you symbolizes the world today. I hope you will help us all in the task of putting it right."[158] Harrison turned the globe over and said "I've done it!", and the other students applauded.[159] For Love's birthday, on 15 March, members of the Beatles and Donovan performed "Spiritual Regeneration/Happy Birthday Mike Love", a song based on the Beach Boys' "Fun, Fun, Fun". Lennon presented Love with a round handmade card containing a self-portrait of him naked, and Harrison gave him a painting of Guru Dev.

Myonlysunshine -- where DID you get that awesome Wild Honey hoodie?


A company called “3D royal tees” made and sold them for a limited time last year. Unfortunately they are not available anymore, but I’ve seen some of these hoodies pop up for sale on eBay since then. Along with Wild Honey they made hoodies in this same style using the Friends, Surf’s Up, Smiley Smile, Endless Summer, Love You, and Keepin’ the Summer Alive album artwork.

Maybe Mike Was wondering if the license fee was being paid :D

Lonely Summer,

I think you will enjoy the show if you go with an open mind! It obviously won't be the same as seeing the group with Carl, but Mike has an excellent lineup of musicians that pay attention to every detail.

That’s one of the peculiarities of the old band that’s been lost- the shaky, ‘garage’ feel to the live performance where they had limited instruments, Dennis drumming 1.5x speed, etc.

The new band plays the songs very ‘straight’ (in the same way the Brian band does) because both are full of session guys

Did they all play those showtimes back in the day or is it just scheduled that way?

here's Brian in 1999 singing Caroline, No: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RhWznlP9_54

Looks like he's been to the Bruce Johnston school of live keyboard performance
Nice performance, similar to how he sang it in the Don Was film. One very minor complaint: i'm not into the thing I see many bands do where they take these originally 2 and a half minute songs and extend them. Is that the reason there is that cd series titled "extended versions"? lo. But Brian sings great here, and yes, I did notice his keyboard playing - but I expected that. Going to see the post-Carl BB's for the first time next month, will be watching Bruce closely - and listening. Smiley

I was sat stage side at the Albert Hall, London show in June. I challenge you to hear an audible keyboard note outside of Disney Girls. There were fingers going down with no sound coming out.

People have complained about Dylan shows for decades. He often plays smaller venues than BW these days.

Complaints have increased about McCartney’s shows over the last five years or so, as he lost his voice.

BW, given his history, is doing well enough. The layperson would probably not be able to tell the difference between his shows from the last decade or so. Folks buy tickets because he’s a legend. They know — and have known for many years — that he does a very particular kind of thing.

I went to McCartney's last show of the tour in London earlier this year - he was in fine fettle, and they only brought out Ringo Starr for the encore. An entire stadium lost their sh*t.

Any issues he has with not putting in 100% onstage are nothing compared to Brian! The guy sings and plays for 3 hours without taking a sip of water.

Does Brian get 'feedback' on his performance? Do they work on stuff? I sometimes get the feeling he's put on a pedestal that's unhelpful - uncorrected, unchallenged
16  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: RIP Nicky Wonder on: August 08, 2019, 09:39:44 AM
I suppose now it’s time to ask... what was the hat all about?

RIP Nicky

hate when he sings(?) the songs like that... Why I'm retired from going to the live shows. Last saw him on the Gershwin tour and it was a great show.

Maybe he's entering a Sinatra phase where you can play with the timing of the vocal a bit... maybe not
19  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian Wilson - 2019 Tour Thread on: August 08, 2019, 08:11:19 AM
Who did they get to play guitar?

Kinda surprised they didn't take a night off... :-/

Mike has appeared publicly with Ringo in more recent years. He appeared at that David Lynch thing with a bunch of people including Paul and Ringo back in 2009:




"Me and George were Pisces brothers..."
21  Smiley Smile Stuff / The Beach Boys Media / Re: Beach Boys - Crocodile Rock on: August 08, 2019, 04:38:10 AM
I think they do a nice job on the song, but the video is embarrassing - as were the videos for Problem Child, Hot Fun in the Summertime, Wipe Out, Rock 'N' Roll to the Rescue...well, pretty much any 80s BBs video not named California Dreamin'.

Good grief, there's another 3 I was unaware of.

Mike and Bruce dress like old men on holiday, Carl seems to have spent the whole era thinking he was in ZZ Top.

Well said, Nate. It's a great band to watch (if a little personnel-heavy at times). Same for Brian's.

I wonder if we'll ever see them doing a basic lineup - Brian, Al, Mike, Bruce (complete with cheap/old sounding keyboard) plus maybe a drummer and bass. Or would the two main guys need 35 people each behind them to get on stage?

Christ... my ears!

Looks like Steve Lukather from Toto on the left guitar (next to Mike) also

Interesting thing about Ringo - he never, ever drums live without another drummer doubling. All those guest appearances etc, you never get to hear the classic Ringo "dustbin lid" sound because there's always someone doubling up. Backing musicians covering up the sound - sounds familiar eh! Wink
25  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Mike working on yet another new album on: August 05, 2019, 11:34:02 AM
I actually really like the overall production of the version of "Here Comes The Sun", from a musical point of view. It's an interesting different approach to the song.

When they brought that out at the Albert Hall I wondered if all the band were in the same key
