Well, that was pleasant. He should stick to this format.

Unless someone proves otherwise -- this could be BB original vocals cut over and supported by someone elses orchestral ideas. Unlikely to be a rocking surf sound or match let alone exceed BWs vision. It seems to be.....not Brian. Not the BB in any real sense except "old" vocals. Why would I waste money on this ?? My message is this ---  Brian is still alive. Mike is still alive. Record as much new stuff as you can....alone or together, but just do it.

Agreed. Could it be any worse?

Brian write and arrange in advance, leave the wives distractions in the states, get together for a week, a few publiclty stills and get the hell out of there. No shows or tour.

Egos won’t allow it to happen but could do ok.

Honestly KDS, I visit the PS forum from time to time, and lately the only time I see some passive aggressive swipe against this forum is when you’re the one doing it. Everyone else seems to be growing up and moving on, except you, which I find to be ironic because you post here as much as anyone else here. If you’ve got a problem with specific people, then come out and say it. Do you have a problem with specific reasons why people dislike Mike? Then come out and say it. You say that some on “other forums” would be surprised that you’d pick Brian over Mike as your favorite beach boy? Who here would even care!?

Did you read Mike’s 2005 lawsuit?
Have you read any one of his interviews in the last 5 years regarding Brian?

You don’t want to acknowledge these things actually happened? Totally fine! But don’t pretend like people on this forum hate Mike just to hate Mike. Seriously, let’s talk about that 2005 lawsuit and please change my mind as to why lying about Brian doesn’t make Mike an absolute schmuck. Seriously, I’d love for anyone to change my mind about that. But until then stop taking swipes at this forum because some here have certain views about Mike.

Anybody can pay for the rights to record cover or tribute versions of any artist's work. Add strings, horns, bagpipes, whatever...and pursue that vision and goal.

But using the *original* vocals from the master tapes, grafted onto arrangements and orchestrations that the original arranger and composer is not involved with, though he's still alive? I don't see it.

And repeating my earlier example, a filet mignon on a bun with ketchup and mustard can be called a burger according to someone's vision, but who in their right mind would do that to a prime cut of beef that is best enjoyed in the specific way it should be served?

Historically on this board, there has always been little interest in Mike's tour dates (certainly for a tour that tours all year, every year).

One can obviously interpret that as something that is more to do with this board, or more to do with the quality and/or ubiquitous nature of Mike's never-ending touring. I'd say it's mostly the latter.

Also, if one has followed Mike's tour and scheduling habits over the years, they will have found that Mike never really "announces" a tour. He never unveils a tour schedule. It just sort of continually exists and is updated on an ongoing basis. It takes a few months into the year for summer tour dates to fill out.

All of this is a result of over-extending the brand and never taking a break from touring. It would actually be a big deal, worth "announcing" a big tour, if Mike wasn't doing 150 shows per year, every year. There's no buzz factor. Mike's tour runs off of brand name recognition, pure momentum, and fluff pieces a week or two in advance in many of the markets he hits.

Lets be honest.  On this forum, it has a LOT to do with the former.  

KDS - You never explained your answer above.

So how about it? Just another chance to take an unnecessary shot at this forum with nothing to back it up? Please explain.

You have to admit there's a heavy anti Mike bias.  

Compared to what or where else, KDS? I'm tired of these posts calling out or blaming this specific board and the people here for something that exists across the internet and has existed for decades, the overwhelming majority of it existing in reaction to what Mike actually does and says publicly.

Are there other forums where people are regularly posting reviews or commentary about Mike's live shows? There used to be one poster on the Britain board regularly posting gushing reviews of his live shows from the tents of the Cape Cod area to any random venue where he played, but even that seems to have stopped or at least slowed down.

And this "bias" you mention may just have as much to do with fans - yes, even longtime or diehard fans - reacting to what Mike actually does or says on a regular basis, rather than an inherent need to bash Mike or a bias you and others continue to cite. If fans can't react to what the guy does or says negatively without having it called a heavy bias on this or other outlets, you're looking for rose-colored glasses that might come free with a few buckets of whitewash and cheap paint rollers.

The Beach Boys will be playing the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal this July. Although confirmed, the date has not been released yet. Seeing as they are playing the Ottawa area on the 21st, one could assume it will be that same weekend, either the 20'th or 21st. Outdoor stage, Free show.

At a comedy festival?  Seems like a strange venue to be playing. I do believe you, and I did google it and found a few articles on it.  But just seems a little odd.

Just for Laughs is a pretty large scale event. And yes the focus in on comedy acts, but I think they have an outdoor 'compound' that probably has some food/drink/merchandise areas and an outdoor stage for music...though I'm not 100% on that.

Id love a stand alone LIH CD
