For what it's worth, in this interview from 1995 (about 2:55 into the interview), Brian himself states he ruined his voice with cigarettes.

At points in this interview he sounds reminiscent of his younger self.

Well, I couldn't find much either. The album, Burnham Would, is a collection of songs written by Jeremiah, but with multiple different lead vocalists. The songs, 'A Place in California' and 'California Baby' sound exactly like Jeff.

Here is Jeff singing California Baby from the same album.

Sandlot Club 2. Anyway, Jeff's vocals are fantastic.

No, it is Jeffery Foskett. Guest vocal on Jeremiah's album. He has 2 lead vocals on the album. The other is California Baby, which is showcased in the Sandlot Club movie.

And another cover. Perhaps they are all wrong....I don't think so.

Another cover. Another using the "Lonely in the night I feel" during the fade.  Its not just me. I think it is a great, simple lyric that describes Brian perfectly at this time in his life....or most times in his life.

https://youtu.be/6TR0cL0ztSc

When I listen to the original, I hear Carl singing two different parts that collide right after the word "feel". At the chorus at the 1:30 mark, Carl does a wordless harmony, instead of the Lonely phrase. The chorus in the fade is different. I hear Carl saying Loneky in the night I feel, followed by a continuation of other lyrics or wordlesd harmony that is in the earlier chorus...with others harmonizing over it.

I was just watching the movie The Sandlot 2 with my son. A song came on in the middle of the movie that had a very distinctive voice. Such a beautiful sound and skill. Many commentors think its the Beach Boys - a compliment to Jeff's talent.

Hoping the best for you Jeff and thank you for all you music!

Song was written by Jerry Burnham.

I still hear....Lonely in the night, I feel.

It sounds like a call response with Brian singing "all I wanna do"
And Carl responds "lonely in the night, i feel"

The "I" in "I feel" is sustained a bit.

Lonely in the night I feel....sounds so very Brian.
11  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: 'All I Wanna Do' Mystery Lyrics on: July 23, 2020, 06:51:39 PM
I hear, "Lonely in the night, I feel".

Listen to this cover....which is damn good.

Beautiful!

So comforting to see something so genuine and pure. Loved both! Bless you, Brian.

Yeah, "This too will pass" ...passed right by my attention. It's awful. Thank goodness Brian has passed on writing with you.

Oh, and the "Safari Club" is referenced in the above weblink.....

real baby trump was (miraculously) picked to kill a grizzly bear in Alaska.  Thanks, Mike, for supporting this behavior.  It truly represents "The Beach Boys" ....meanwhile the real baby trump stands to get a new rug for his pad.

Will never attend another Mike Bruce show and will discourage all friends and family to do the same.....coming from someone who has been to several shows since 93'.

Peace and ....what evs.

You want to talk about a power imbalance?  The son of the most powerful man in the world just publicly picked on/mocked a guy who was bullied - and literally has brain damage - from his bully psychiatrist, who was brought in to treat Brian's conditions resulting from his bully father.

There will never be another person in rock music hated as much as Mike. Salieri for all times.

Most any BBs fans with a conscience right now should be livid if they really think about this.


Like a broken record...the way you guys see reality under your own lens.   Mike/Beach Boys touring group/this stupid hunting organization/Trump Jr.  all of them going on about their own business doing this event.   Brian Wilson and Al Jardine independently choose to publicly BULLY THEM by publicly calling for people to boycott their concert.   Don Jr. has the audacity to respond and HE is the one who is bullying.   Geez.
[/quote]

Whatever hatred shown towards Mike by the industry and fans, he largely brought it upon himself, by HIS actions.

Brian, above all, has every right to protest this absurd concert specifically because Mike CHOSE to link the Beach Boys name and legacy to it.  Brian's camp realizes that backing out of the concert (not likely at this point) would be a loss of revenue for he and Melinda as well, yet he still calls for the protest. He has a stake in the game. None of us do. So stop saying Brian is wrong or a bully for sticking up for what he believes is best for the band and catalog he is largely responsible for.

I think he just has friends in power and likes to maintain those friendships.

Of this I can agree completely. It's all about some sick, twisted, narcissistic prioritization of slobbing on the knobs of powerful people. That's more important to Mike, than say, maintaining a stance on not killing animals and caring for the Earth that he took on so many songs, and has preached for decades. Now even Dennis' solo album is tainted too.

And dragging the brand down with it. And playing songs that his cousin wrote that his cousin doesn't want him playing. A true phony whose priorities are disgustingly out of whack. Find me a bigger phony in the music industry. I double dare anyone.

If Mike has these friendships with powerful people, then play the show as Mike Love. The Beach Boys as a whole don't have those friendships (with the Trumps), but the other members are being taken along for the horrible ride. Mike is acting selfish here. No other way to put it.

Mike. Hope you are reading these. You make me sick.
19  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Please sign petition for Beach Boys to withdraw from performing on 2/5/20 on: February 03, 2020, 07:54:08 PM
Mike (and Bruce) are hypocrites. What a sham. How dare they use the Beach Boys name to promote their own beliefs and greed without the consensus from the group...which apparently doesn't exist. Yeah, I will buy the box set or other future releases of the band because they were products made and performed by the original "band", but I will no longer support the Mike and Bruce touring farce and will encourage others not to as well.  Thank you Brian for speaking out about this cruel "sport". Who the hell shoots a leopard or a lion or any animal they won't eat for subsistence and feels good about it?  This behavior coming from a guy who didn't like the lyrics to "Hang on to Your Ego".... Mike, it is you that has always had the ego problem.

I love it. Really sounds like it could be Dennis singing this in 1964.

Murphy's, California September 14th, is cancelled...scheduling conflict.

Huh...I'm on iTunes store now and viewing all Becah Boys albums. Nothing. I'm in California.

Can I assume this will be available for download on ITunes at some point? Exciting!!

I attended the Mt. Winery show lastnight in the SF Bay area. The crowd was very much into the classics, but rather motionless and with minimal applause for his (Love's) new solo work. I went with a group of casual fans all of which thought the new songs were pretty weak. I thought they were awful. All The Love in Paris being the best out of the three...but still meh.

How many damn songs will he write that includes his last name in the title? Does he think we all believe he's really clever? Does he not realize how lame that is? Again, a group of casual fans I was with (who supplied me with a free ticket) all leaned over and whispered to me...how lame. I can only imagine what Dennis would think.

"All the Love in Paris", "Unleash the Love", and on the way into the venue they were playing random Beach Boy and Mike Love songs, one of which seemed to have the title "Make Love Not War"....I wouldn't know as I wouldn't buy the album.

BTW, it seems very shady to plug your solo album and play three tracks at a show billed as the Beach Boys. Totten's and Cowsil's playing/singing were the highlights lastnight....
