If you donít have it-his book is very entertaining

Debbie-maybe you recall this-a letter was in the Kansas City star a few days later for from a fan complaining about the audience. A girl was upset that someone in the audience threw something at Dennis that knocked him off his kit and he had to exit the show. She was very concerned that the BBs would never return to kc but of course they came back the following year

As this is a BBs forum I don't want to waste too much of your time-but in case you are interested I'd thought I'd mention my book on the Stones-which is available for preorder on Amazon-https://www.amazon.com/Rolling-Stones-Concert-1962-1982-Show/dp/1476673926/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1538351096&sr=8-1&keywords=Rusten+Stone 
If you read the Beach Boys In Concert then you will find the format very similar.  Same level of detail. I have a lot of images in the book-posters, flyers, promo materials, etc.  I think it is pretty good, if I say so myself.  The BBs are my number one-but I love the Stones and many other artists too.  If you have any questions-let me know.
Ian
By the way-book is done and off to the printer soon.  We'll be out by November.

As mentioned in my book they were filmed during sessions for time to get alone in October 1968 and the producers of the American band video actually dubbed in that song for their movie-which was cool

I like classic country -like 1960s George Jones and patsy cline. I like early outlaw country but rarely listen to anything recorded after 1985

Bruce saw the BBs perform a few times before he joined them. He was in Hawaii in June 1963 when they played there and that was when he met them. He was on the same bill as them in Hawaii in July 1964
9  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: what did Glen Campbell do on stage with the BB's? on: September 05, 2018, 03:59:34 AM
Right that was May 13 1965 and I have an interview the boys did after the show (I think I excerpted it in my book with Jon). Bruce has no recollection of this but probably due to other commitments he didnít take over full time till May 19-glen played most early May 1965 shows including Birmingham with the Stones, Springfield, Boston And New Haven. Everyone Iíve talked to who saw them at this time recalls him getting a quick solo spot-itís great that you recall the actual song! I like Elvis 1970 (released 1971) version myself
10  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: what did Glen Campbell do on stage with the BB's? on: September 02, 2018, 02:04:51 PM
Right but what cman is discussing is that after the European tour the BBs, now with glen, were in Omaha and their guitars were stolen
11  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: what did Glen Campbell do on stage with the BB's? on: September 02, 2018, 01:59:06 PM
I am pretty positive the big shot of them in striped shirts is from the second Virginia Beach show on May 12 1965, the last tour with glen in the band. The January photo from the survey is in my book.
12  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: 1984 press conference on: September 01, 2018, 05:10:12 AM
Iím sure it exists but I donít think itís online
13  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: 1988 Bruce Interview on: August 30, 2018, 10:28:17 AM
Yes the conference was January 9-I mention in my book-the chapter on 1984

I think he was giving an honest opinion that your free to disagree with. People are contradictory. A guy who records yacht rock may still be a fan of heavy metal. It is possible
15  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Elvis Presley - 50th anniversary Comeback Special on: August 28, 2018, 11:54:56 AM
Yeah I feel like the 3 dvd set is all you need from that special. The rest is just repackaging
16  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: COUNTRY MUSIC on: August 28, 2018, 11:53:11 AM
I donít know why but Iíve never been a huge fan of willie, though I respect what he does. I like stardust and the red headed stranger but donít listen to either that much. The willie songs I listen to the most are luckenbak Texas and patsy clines version of crazy. I like his duet with Dylan on pancho and lefty a lot (more then the original with Merle). Obviously heís a legend I just find a lot of his albums a little samey-itís his voice I guess-it isnít that expressive to me (my loss Iím sure)

Should note here that on my website beachboysgigs.com you can look at an additions/corrections blog for this book. It is on the menu to the right
18  Smiley Smile Stuff / The Beach Boys Media / Re: Beach Boys live '65, Brian on the drums. on: August 27, 2018, 03:01:37 PM
If the photo is academy of music then it is February 13 1965-other photos exist of this show which appeared in hit parader
19  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys & Carl Perkins 1989? on: August 27, 2018, 10:48:35 AM
Yeah it was cool how humble and overwhelmed by the adulation he was. A talented man who had some bad breaks and never quite became a star. Johnny cash was very loyal to him and he toured with the cash show for many years
20  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys & Carl Perkins 1989? on: August 27, 2018, 08:36:00 AM
No recollection of him being on it but, other then the campfire bits, the show was so corny Iíve blocked it out
21  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: My website on: August 27, 2018, 05:50:22 AM
I did most of 1962 now but have to scan some ads
22  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys & Carl Perkins 1989? on: August 27, 2018, 05:47:56 AM
Iím not aware of the BBs ever touring with Perkins but they did tour with the everly brothers and Roy Orbison in the 1980s. They also played some shows with Jerry Lee Lewis in Spain in 1990
23  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / My website on: August 18, 2018, 06:31:12 AM
Have been very busy lately (with the washing and the ironing...) but I am still intending to add more to my site beachboysgigs.com and have started work on 1962-which you can look at. I have ads and things that I have to scan and add but you know the washing and ironing gets in the way. Anyway view gigs to look at it and if youíve never been to the site you can look at the complete 1963 and 1964 as well (other years have nothing yet). On the top right of the home page you can also click to read a blog about corrections and additions to the book I did with Jon-Iíve found many shows since the book and Jim Murphy uncovered a lot more early gigs

Thanks Ed-just a question of time
