i'd love a proper studio recording of Brian and the band's arrangement of She's Leaving Home.


i'd also love to hear him include things that influenced him back in the 50s (besides Chuck Berry) like Four Freshmen, Rosemary Clooney, Hi-Lo's, etc.

Girls on the Beach is like Surfer Girl on steroids. the harmonies, chord progression, and arrangement are much more sophisticated. when compared to SG, GOTB is really a great indicator of just how much Brian advanced in a short period of time. Denny's vocal on the bridge is the icing on the cake. what a cut.

obviously Al just needs to write a book of his own once the dust settles from Mike & Brian's

actually you can't mess with Mike either, judging from his reaction to being told he has a chip on his shoulder. he stomped away like a child and threw a tantrum threatening to walk out on the reunion before it really even started. it's amazing that he expects sympathy from this story. does he really not see what a huge brat he paints himself to be?

he plays like a 6-year old but I'm glad y'all like it!
81  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Mike opens up about Melinda. on: September 16, 2016, 11:31:33 PM
Mike Love's accounting is inaccurate.

Seems to be a trend amongst associates of Mike who talk sh*t about Melinda.

One less...I banned Chewbacca. Sorry it took so long, had to wait til I had a break

sorry i can't help it but...
 HALLE-F*CKING-LUJAH!!!

pretty interesting that the video has been pulled, huh? can't find it anywhere.

perhaps litigation proceedings are under way?  Wink
83  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Mike opens up about Melinda. on: September 16, 2016, 12:29:23 PM
man you guys are a patient lot. I stopped addressing fdp directly a long time ago for obvious reasons.

I guess in her roundabout way she is confirming that indeed Mike has offered two very different accounts of Melinda using the f-word, to whom she was addressing, and about whom she was describing.

so yes, Mike took an isolated incident from early in the C50 tour in which Melinda was standing up for her husband, spun it around and completely changed the specifics in an attempt to explain why the reunion fell apart. once again, he is deflecting the blame onto someone else and inventing yet another false reason as to why the reunion didn't continue.

and it only took 7 pages to get to the bottom of this!  Wink


I can't deny, this does sum it up quite well. Well put!

Mike is the one misquoting his own book and flat-out stating that Melinda called herself his f*cking partner, which according to his book never f*cking happened.
86  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Mike opens up about Melinda. on: September 16, 2016, 10:41:46 AM

As for Mike's conflicting stories, could it also be possible that he misspoke? He's 75 years old. Could he have mixed up what she said? My 80-year-old father will sometimes do that and then only realize what he said when he's corrected. He's perfectly healthy, but you do get moments of confusion when you get older.

this is more than just mixing up his words.
the account Mike gives in the interview paints a completely different picture of what actually occurred (according to his book) and he specifically states that she told HIM she was MIKE'S partner... rather than telling Jackie that she was Brian's partner.
87  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Mike opens up about Melinda. on: September 16, 2016, 10:18:40 AM
heavens, the "story" is the one in the book; likely the version cobbled together in the interview news item (unless there is video) ran into pronoun trouble.
not pronoun trouble, Mike tells a different story in the interview. here is the quote:

Quote
But the tour later unraveled, in part because Love resented interference from Melinda Wilson, Brian’s wife.

“Yeah. She once told me that ‘Brian’s not your partner. I’m your f****ng partner.’ That’s what she said,” Love said.

she actually never said that if we are to believe the passage in the book, which states:

a) Melinda was speaking to Jackie, not to Mike
b) Melinda said that SHE was Brian's partner, not Mike
c) Melinda said that she was BRIAN'S partner, not Mike's partner

in the interview, Mike accuses Melinda of something that apparently never happened if he is referencing his book.
88  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Mike opens up about Melinda. on: September 16, 2016, 09:27:41 AM
just to be clear to certain forum members (ahem): THIS thread is about ONE SPECIFIC STATEMENT that Mike just made during a CBS interview which seems to conflict with what he wrote in his book and with what may have actually occurred.

THIS thread is not about Mike's book specifically, or Carl's last days on the tour, or Landy's actions, or even the length of Mike's turds Wink
89  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Mike opens up about Melinda. on: September 16, 2016, 09:22:17 AM
Am I the only one who thinks it's a really big issue that Mike is telling a very different story about an event that is in the book that has just been published and that he's currently promoting?

it's a huge difference... if she A) told Jackie, "I'm his (Brian's) f*cking partner" or if she B) told Mike, "I'm your (Mike's) f*cking partner."

we still don't know which, even though certain forum members (one in particular) had the opportunity to set the discussion straight but chose to derail the thread instead while accusing OTHERS of going off on a tangent. and which is one of several reasons I stopped engaging with certain forum members (one in particular) some time ago.

it certainly seems like Mike tells story A in his book, but tells story B in the CBS interview. if that is the case, Mike is not only misquoting his own book but also misrepresenting what actually happened and slandering Melinda in the process. and if THAT is the case, then perhaps we've not heard the last of this and hopefully Melinda will offer her version of events. maybe she can even sue Mike for good measure  Wink
90  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Child Is Father of the Man Vocal Guide on: September 15, 2016, 08:46:02 PM
Brian definitely contributed to the section of Little Bird that sounds like Child, and apparently refused any writing credit.
91  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Tones / Tune X Vocal Guide on: September 14, 2016, 11:26:06 PM
I agree the two songs are related and made this mash-up some time ago:

It's very quaint how pejorative his use of the term "hipsters" is.  

I assume this is ok to post at this point in time since it is publically searchable but if not I'll take it down. I know Mike is much better at lawsuits than the rest of us.



Mike really is a clueless f***!ng blowhard.  ugh
93  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Mike Love's book on: August 28, 2016, 09:11:05 PM
sadly it appears we have a book by the only Mike there is:

not a man interested in any type of meaningful self-reflection, apologizing for any wrongdoing, or displaying any degree of humility whatsoever.

just the same guy proclaiming his immense contributions to the band's success, extolling his superior lifestyle choices, and bitterly calling out those he feels ripped off or slighted by.

what a loathsome, ungrateful, and utterly self-centered human. y'all enjoy the book
94  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: And so it starts.... on: August 28, 2016, 08:51:36 PM
more reprehensible and indefensible statements coming from Mike. is anyone surprised?

and did anyone catch this blurb yet:
"On one of our youthful fishing trips, Dennis and I got talking about the surfing craze and why it made sense to do a surfing song."

95  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian Wilson - Pet Sounds Tour Program on: August 24, 2016, 07:22:04 PM
the program is great with tons of unseen photos. very glad i purchased it.
96  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian Wilson - Pet Sounds Tour Program on: August 24, 2016, 06:44:53 PM
it's pretty clearly intentional. now watch Mike sue for being excluded from the program.
97  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian Wilson 2016 Tour Thread (Pet Sounds 50th Anniversary Tour) on: August 19, 2016, 08:54:27 AM
saw the show in Asheville last night. Brian and the band got a great reception and did a fantastic performance.

been avoiding this thread to keep from spoiling any possible surprises this tour, so I was indeed surprised by the "River Deep" intro to CA Girls not to mention Funky Pretty! Wake the World and California were also great treats to hear. I wasn't expecting Billy to be in the band so that was very cool too. Matt sounded really great... the crowd loved him. Brian telling folks to "please be seated" 2 or 3 times over the course of the show was this tour's crack-up moment. Blondie was feeling great and it showed, I don't think too many in the crowd were expecting his presence at all especially when he cranked up and rocked out... I was loving every second of it. and what can you say about Al that hasn't already been said... he was solid as ever, his voice is the fountain of youth, and he dressed the part in his white suit and matching guitar. I may have shouted out "Keep it Clean!" at one point, can't quite recall.

Brian wasn't nearly as animated or talkative as last summer's tour, but I like his new vocal approach on some of the songs... almost talking his way through verses at times and playing with the timing, similar to Willie Nelson or Bob Dylan. really seems to suit him at his age and it's great to hear him trying something new.

picked up a poster and tour booklet, which features several outtakes from the front and back cover shoots I'd never seen before. the $100 bronze bust of Brian was a cool thing I'd love to own, but I had to pass.

never mind... found it. it's on the Vocal Element boot. god Mike comes across as such a humorless ass. no spontaneity, no wit, no clue. it's kind of painful to listen to. Taylor clearly can't stand him (and vice versa) but it's fun to hear Mike become the butt of the joke for once.
99  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Michaels's Bald Head on: August 13, 2016, 12:33:00 AM
pretty sure i've heard the Derek Taylor bit, but where can we hear it again??  LOL

seems to be several accounts of Jeff forging Brian's signature which is also rather reprehensible. as for joining M&B, i think he's right where he belongs.
