Saw Ben Gibbard was the special guest tonight. Wonder what he sang with them?

God Only Knows

Wow...now I REALLY wish I could've been there

He saw himself as Casper...the lyrics were partially autobiographical, about how his mom used to yell at him for spending all his time doing art and working on music. You know, the things that later gave him a modicum of fame

The lyrics of Never Relaxed are also darkly hilarious , where this dudeís life and luck are so depressingly bad even Satan ends up feeling sorry for him

With the exception of apparently zoning out during Good Vibrations from those clips Brian looked like the Brian of about ten years ago or so as far as being animated. It was cool to see him smile and wave

If I can get off work Iím going to the memorial. Havenít talked with his brother in some years and this is a hell of a way to catch up. 

My daughterís been playing True Love Will Find You In The End a lot since getting the news. Learned to play it pretty quick. Weíre going to probably record it sometime this weekend

The video is up (with clips) and man it was special seeing everyone gathered around the piano Brian was playing doing In My Room.
Wish Iíd have been there!

From first hand experience, Al's a hell of a nice guy.

I think it's been bothering Brian for a very long time, although it hadn't gotten too too bad until maybe a few years ago (if not more)

Honestly, Iíve never seen a successful back surgery; guess it all depends on the definition. From my own experience neck and back problems are life long. Back surgery seems to be more about delaying the pain from getting worse until itís time for the next one.

So yeah thats one thing I do disagree with.

21  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian Wilson - 2019 Tour Thread on: September 08, 2019, 01:45:28 PM
Honestly why does Brian bother taking lead vocal duties anymore? I keep wondering why he just doesn't stick to introducing the songs and takes a few lines, like the bridge in Surfer Girl. People are there to experience the music of Brian with Brian present. It's not like he must sing to please the audience. Brian didn't even perform for many years while the rest of the group sang his songs.

Is even really that motivated to sing the leads?
Brian loves to tour, Brian loves live performing.

Brian has gone on record saying that when heís on stage the auditory hallucinations donít bother him as much. So rather than post some of the snarky comments youíve been posting, maybe having just the tiniest bit of compassion would be the way to go?

Nate, I agree with you100%

Good old Al Vardine

LOL

I like his cousin Al Sardine

Call me crazy but Iíd love to hear Brian do A day in the life of a Tree. Itíll never happen of course but I think itíd actually sound pretty good and somewhat poignant
25  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Lana Del Rey's new single contains a BB reference on: September 06, 2019, 10:23:37 PM
I think you guys are being a bit literal. I think she's using "Kokomo" to mean "heaven"... i.e. the Long Beach bar was the last place Dennis spent time here on earth before he left us. That's a lot more poetic (and with Dennis in mind, IMO some of those shots of her twirling on the speedboat at night take on a haunting resonance).

She was intended to work with Brian on No Pier Pressure, and the song is sprinkled with BBs/Dennis references, so I would think she is not wholly unfamiliar with the broad strokes of their history.




I took it the same way you did
