I'm very interested in the revised and expanded edition of The Real Beach Boy. Are there still legal clearance and liability issues? I hope everything works out. I'm looking forward to it!

I, too, am curious about this. I never read the original (esp since its so high priced) so would love to buy the new one.

I'd like to see Brian do an album along the lines of the Beach Boys Party album.  He could pick 25 or 30 oldies/rock and roll songs that he likes, rehearse them a bit with his band, and then record them quickly, like the Party album.  Very informal, let the band have fun with it, and get the "rock and roll" album out of his system.  I'm sure Brian could have some fun doing some of the lesser-known Spector songs, and it would be great to hear him do songs he loves, without having to slave over them.

Not to in anyway disparage hal Blaine but this is exactly the why books like Stebbins tome on Dennis are so important. People are lazy and prone to making easy answers. Clearly the truth is often not easy to encapsulate in a thirty seconds response

I think Brian might just be at another slight career crossroads. No BB reunion in sight. Other than a refurbished "Smile" tour, there isn't much of any touring "concept" to wrap a tour around that will sell a lot of extra tickets. He can still sell a core number of tickets, so some level of touring is always an option. So what does Brian do? Just another album/tour cycle? I'd prefer an album of new stuff to oldies R&R covers, but either way I would imagine he'll sing the stuff on any given album just fine, and then if he tours behind it he'll only do 2-4 songs from any new album.

I think it would be cool to see more concentrated, niche projects see realization. A boxed set of Brian's famous/infamous stuff, call it "The Bedroom Tapes" even if the moniker isn't terribly accurate, is where I think Brian could build up a lot of heavy interest. A boxed set of demos and curios, and wrapping a tour around *that* concept in some general sense, could be cool.

2018 ideally would perhaps see:

-Opening up of the BB archives (studio and live)
-A "Bedroom Tapes" boxed set to beef up interest in *Brian* on the indie scene again
-Separately or together with the "Bedroom Tapes" in some sort larger Brian boxed set, a full release of all the Paley stuff
-If Brian also wants to get an oldies R&R album out of his system, let him do that too. But get someone in there (Was, Thomas, someone) to finally get it done and out.
-A shorter, one-shot tour, perhaps in the fall, working in some new album stuff and more deep cuts, getting Al, Matt, and Blondie (if he's there) even more involved.

Hey Jude, is the Rock and roll album supposed to be all covers?

From articles from this year, I assumed Brian was writing rock and roll songs like those of the 50's and 60's.

Thanks for the info everyone. Hey Jude, Ed Carter is someone who confused me because Wikipedia implied he only played rhythm guitar before Carl left. I only knew of Barbara Ann from Knebworth 1980 where he did play lead. I'm just starting to find full concerts on YouTube.

I'd love to hear some BB holiday songs live. 

Go see M&B if they're around you during any December. You'll hear half the Xmas album.

I'd love to, but they don't tend to come to my neck of the woods in December.  They're coming to Maryland the weekend before Thanksgiving, but I'm out of town that weekend.
