I came across an interesting article today discussing similarities between The Beach Boys and The Kinks.

They were on the bill with the BBs on the July 4 65 show in San Fran but had a huge fight with the promoter and basically walked on stage-waved to the audience and then walked off and out to their cars-did not endear them to that promoter!! And mercurial behavior like that damaged their career in the 60s (in fact they got banned from the states for a few years after Mick Avory and Dave Davies had a fistfight on stage) A great band though-no doubt about it. Ray Davies wrote incredible songs from 64 to 71.

Aside from the Beatles, these two are my favorite bands, and I've often thought of the similar paths they trod. Nice to see I'm not the only one who noticed.

Really, really good article. And easily my favourite bands along with  The Beatles and Pink Floyd. But this guy really knows his music.

A band called The Beach Boys are mostly going to be a fun in the sun-themed group. And that has, is, and will always be just as it should. There needs to be ONE classic band that isn't a pack of endless "artistic" moan. All people wanna do is make The Beach Boys into another Beatles they are less tired of.
And, for anyone who has actually experienced them, surfing and cars carry PLENTY of emotion and life experience. They can carry as much metaphor as any Van Dyke Parks clever epistle.

Ray wrote incredible songs from 72 to 93, too. And there's some good stuff on Other Peoples Lives and Working Man's Cafe, too.
