One of my favorites as well. I don't know of any version with Dennis on lead, though.

I bought it and read it. I’ll admit it is entertaining and interesting but I wish it didn’t leave such a bitter aftertaste-the portrayal of Dennis and Carl are almost wholly negative (Mike only positive). Obviously this is Rocky’s experiences but the book needs some balance. A few tacked on words about how Carl And Dennis were not that bad just didn’t cut it

I'm pleased to hear you found the book "entertaining and interesting." Thanks for that.
We certainly did not mean to leave a negative portrayal of Dennis and Carl. I'm a little surprised that that is the result for you.

Dennis was a tragic figure by any standards, all that talent destroyed by drugs. No way to whitewash that. It's just the way it went.
As for Carl, things went down a certain way, the reader can judge for themselves. Thanks for getting the book in any case.

I'm sure Rocky would like to weigh in on this topic. Do you know how he could be allowed back on the site, what he'd have to do to get back on?

Ron
With all due respect(to you), there isn't a chance in hell of him ever being allowed back bere. He was permanently banned from this board, with good reason. You might want to take a look through his posting history to get an idea of why he's not welcome here.


Agreed

I may have said this before so forgive me for repeating myself if I have, but you have a great taste in music RR and I'm discovering things I never heard of.

I'd imagine it would.

All of Billy Joel's discography... thank you Sirius Smiley

That would actually be cool
10  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian Wilson - 2018 Tour Thread on: November 14, 2018, 06:55:18 PM
Previously it was stated along the lines of it being the last Pet Sounds performance in England. This one states it is the last performance of ANY kind in Toronto. Now if that ends up being the case or not, whatever, but not quite the same thing.
11  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian Wilson - 2018 Tour Thread on: November 14, 2018, 03:44:30 PM
Now I'm sad
12  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian Wilson - 2018 Tour Thread on: November 14, 2018, 01:35:26 PM
Thank you for the reports. I too feel that Brian truly does want to be on the road, and his diminished mobility has to be affecting him and not just physically. I like the idea of Al having a mini-set too. Unlike some, I think Brian continuing to tour is a good thing as it will keep him active. I don't think making him more sedentary is the answer, as I don't think that will be good for his spirits. Just my feeling, and I could be wrong

Never thought I said this but even *I* am hoping for a change soon, and that's coming from the biggest die-hard fan on this board that's not an honored guest

Or just maybe heíd rather do this to keep busy, perhaps?

Brian has always struck me as not wanting to be around people that always kiss his ass.
19  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian Wilson - 2018 Tour Thread on: November 05, 2018, 09:46:46 PM
Sounds like a great deal was due to getting tired and the pain. The opening part sounds promising!

Iíve always pretty much been the very definition of a Brianista. I have no qualms admitting that. With that in mind if he really is tired of doing Pet Sounds then it needs to end. Again, thatís IF. But of the description it sounds like he just wore out

I respect him as a musician but Wayne was way off base with that
21  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian Wilson - 2018 Tour Thread on: November 05, 2018, 01:17:46 PM
I'll be at the Kennedy Center this evening, Row 3 Center in my Pet Sounds 2016 Shirt..."The Final Performances" LOL  LOL

Enjoy the show!

"When the claims of a participant contradict things that are established, proven, on the record, it is our responsibility as music historians to ask why. That is all."

I've never heard a phrase of such pompous, self righteous wind-bag blather like that ever before.  That is all?  That is enough!

That wasnít necessary

Off to see the show on 11-4.  What can I expect.   This will be my 6th BW show since the first Pet Sounds tour.  Can't believe it has been nearly 20 years since BW hit the road with the Wondermints.

How was the show?
24  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian Wilson - 2018 Tour Thread on: November 04, 2018, 09:53:03 PM
Quite pissed off after hearing these pricks. If Brian was having one of his off days he likely got thrown off going from question to question. If Brian is having one of those days do you think heís really going to be able to follow the train of conversation? sh*t, I have days like that too, ever since my first stroke and only made worse after my second. Iím on antidepressants too as I have issues of my own. If Iíd had one of ďmy daysĒ thereís no way Iím hell I wouldíve wanted to be apart of something like this. I have severe social anxiety (among other issues not worth going into) I wouldíve shut down in this situation and I havenít been through near as much sh*t as he has. He gives a short answer? Do a follow up question. Another short answer? Follow up on that. Nah, with the bouncing back and forth coupled with the laughter, he likely felt uncomfortable. I sure would have

Funny, I really can't get into Daniel Johnston. Maybe it's voice & songwriting combo.
Billy Joel is good, yep.

His voice is definitely an acquired taste, and his songs generally show their full potential when covered by others. However, there are several things to keep in mind. In addition to being high functioning autistic his earlier recordings were done at his parents house in a cheap handheld tape recorder and he tought himself how to play keyboard (and later guitar it he never got any good on that instrument). He was starting to make headways in the industry after moving to Austin Texas until a true jackass named Gibby Hanes (from the butthole surfers) thought it would be funny to spike his drink with lsd, and that combined with dormant mental illness and issues from his strict religious upbringing resulted in a severe mental breakdown and ended up with him institutionalized.

As an addendum...Gibby Haynes also is the guy who introduced Scott Weiland to heroin and the guy who convinced Kurt Cobain to leave rehab a few days before he died.

As a second addendum in addition to running Daniel Johnston Ďs career, his brother Dick is a nice guy whoíve I had email communication with some years back and I installed his cable LOL

Edit

I need to point out that Daniel being on the high functioning side of the autism spectrum was done after the fact, so to speak, and truthfully is nothing more than conjecture as an accurate diagnosis couldnít possibly be made now even if based on archival evidence...but as Iíve seen his name listed with Daryl Hannah and Dan Aykroyd I included it.
