I’m not digging the stereo mix of “Good Vibrations.”

“I love the colorful clothes she wear.” What happened to the “s?”

It’s a little weird there’s nothing from That’s Why God Made the Radio on the expanded Sounds of Summer.

Here he is at age 10 on NBC’s Philco Television Playhouse. This teleplay was written by Bea Arthur’s ex-husband, and co-starred future Broadway legend Elaine Stritch: https://youtu.be/2uSd4PjbcVE

And here he is at 13 on CBS’ General Electric Theater. I wonder what ever happened to that host: https://youtu.be/SYsr20yVx9E

Is there any realistic scenario in which Mike’s license to use the Beach Boys name can be rescinded? What would that look like? Is it feasible?

Tonight on his SiriusXM show, John Fugelsang played the first minute or so of “Here She Comes” coming back from a commercial break. He didn’t say anything about the song, though. I’d never heard that song out in the wild before.

I'd always pegged STP as the beginning of the never ending onslaught of post-grunge (Bush, Live, Creed, Nickelback, Staind, Seether, etc.), but after hearing both this cover and an acoustic version of Plush a while back, I'm thinking maybe it's time to reevaluate their back catalog. They actually sound pretty fuckin' awesome when they turn off the distortion.

That's now my favorite Beach Boys cover. I wish STP would have recorded a full unplugged style album.
Same. Scott had a gorgeous, and honestly underrated, voice, and it really shone in acoustic songs.

Nobody can even being to say whether anything involved in this amounts to dementia. We don't have enough details, and even if we did, we're not doctors who could say what criteria would need to be met to use that term.

But I do think "mental issues causing Brian to say things he doesn't mean", while certainly open to interpretation, is something that, the way I read his statement, seems to potentially be beyond essentially the "mental pain" equivalent of yelling at people because of physical pain. Meaning, I read his statement as meaning he's saying things beyond his control and understanding, rather than being fed up with mental (or physical) pain and just lashing out.

But I think it's a good idea not to get bogged down at this time with using the specific term like "dementia." It potentially incorrectly characterizes what's going on, and also can lead to sort of the opposite effect where someone (potentially rightly) may point out that that term is incorrect, but then some take that to mean there is nothing serious going on. There may be (well, there *is* I think by Brian's own indication) something serious mentally going on, and it's important to keep the characterization of that as being as serious as it needs to be by *not* trying to ascribe one specific term/condition to it.
You’re right. I apologize for jumping to conclusions. Please know it was out of love and concern, and not anything sordid.

This is a terrible thought, and I hate myself for even entertaining the idea, but it almost sounds like the onset of dementia. I hope I’m completely wrong; it’s just that some of the symptoms described sound familiar to those of us who’ve had to say a long goodbye to a loved one.

I'll admit that I had that thought too. "Saying things I don't mean." But we shouldn't speculate. I'm glad Brian is doing what he needs to do to take care of himself, and I hope he recovers soon.
Agreed. Health first!

18  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Tom Petty tried to sing like Carl in “Room at the Top.” on: December 19, 2018, 06:52:59 PM
And we can hear Carl sing on "Hung Up and Overdue" from TP & the Heartbreakers' "She's the One" soundtrack, one of my favorite Tom Petty songs.



The comment section on youtube mentioned that George Harrison and Ringo Starr also played on "Hung up and overdue". There's definitely a guitar part that sounds like Harrison. But is it true?

Ringo plays drums on that song, but I don’t recall George being on it. The slide guitar was by Mike Campbell who can do an amazing imitation of George’s slide guitar sound.


Alright, thanks for the confirmation of Ringo's appearance.
Oddly enough, both George and Ringo appear in the “I Won’t Back Down” music video, even though Ringo doesn’t actually play on the track.

This is why it took the Cubs another 29 years to finally win the World Series.

I like how Apple Music thinks Beach Boy Mike Love and reggae Mike Love are the same person.

Free trial ended, Sirius app deleted. It was fun while it lasted. Back to my custom playlists.
You might be able to sign up again for a free trial, perhaps using an alternate person/email address.

Can confirm.
23  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Tom Petty tried to sing like Carl in “Room at the Top.” on: June 15, 2018, 11:45:27 PM
Tom talked a few years back about releasing a companion album to Wildflowers that would include songs that would have been on the originally envisioned two-disc version of Wildflowers. I wonder if Tom completed the project prior to his death and, if so, if Carl is on any of those tracks.
24  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Tom Petty tried to sing like Carl in “Room at the Top.” on: June 14, 2018, 08:08:02 AM
He’s also on “Honey Bee,” but he’s too low in the mix to hear.
25  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Tom Petty tried to sing like Carl in “Room at the Top.” on: June 13, 2018, 12:37:30 PM
I’ve always been fascinated by Carl’s contributions to Tom Petty’s mid-‘90s music. Today, while Googling to try and learn a bit more about their relationship, I stumbled upon this, from 1999:

http://www.nydailynews.com/tom-petty-personal-rocker-emerges-post-divorce-funk-hard-rocking-first-person-album-article-1.828436

Quote
The result brought out a new heaviness in Petty's voice, epecially in the opening track, "Room at the Top." The artist says he was trying to ape the plaintive singing style of his friend Carl Wilson (of the Beach Boys), who had just died. "It was my hopeless attempt to sound like Carl," Petty explains. "I'm just pleased that more voices keep showing up because if you've got to sing a whole album it's good to have different sounds on it."

Tom doesn’t sound like Carl in “Room at the Top”; he sounds like Tom, but it’s one of my favorite Heartbreakers tunes.

An aside, during the making of that album (Echo), Tom was struggling with a crippling heroin addiction, a fact that wasn’t revealed publicly until a few years ago in Warren Zaines’ Tom Petty biography — which I highly recommend if you’re a Tom Petty fan.
