The more the debate on this board intensifies about Stamos--the more he tries to withdraw from the proceedings.  Tonight, Stamos introduced the band again, played "Be True To Your Schoo"l on drums, came out later for 'Kokomo" and then took a very clear "final bow" and didn't return at all for any guitar work.  It's as if he wanted to make very clear..."Ok, I'm only out for a couple songs, don't throw tomatoes at me."  He was very respectful and gave the BB their space tonight....unlike last night where he sorta did take over a little.  A funny moment was Stamos playing guitar next to Brian during "Surfin' USA" Stamos made it clear to smile at Brian--Brian looked over and gave John the quickest "oh hello" smile ever.  It was hilarious...even Stamos laughed.

Dat song sounds better now than it did in 1976.

I've never been crazy about the BBs doing this, but this must be their best version I've heard.

He shouldn't be up there but he saved the day on this one. They do need to have some kind of contingency in place should these videos fail again though.

Yes, agreed, and I'm not seeing a problem, either.  Stamos often moves around the stage, sharing mics.  Check out some YouTubes.  It is no big deal for those who have seen the Touring Band for the last 10 years.  No big deal.  

Important is the photo tribute to handsome, hunky Denny.  Done beautifully and doing the chorus, really tastefully.

Yeah, clearly not planned and Stamos jumped in somewhat unawares - He's fiddling with his monitor most of the time.

As for a contingency plan, I think David should be on standby. Or, failing that, Scott B. He'd do a good (slightly clean) Dennis.

BTW, in case you were wondering what the video tributes looked like, same guy filmed the Carl one.

Ditto that. It was clear no one was going to step up and take the lead but it was also clear that they weren't going to do anything but forge forward through the song.

I can't believe my first post is defending John Stamos, but isn't it entirely possible that no one in the band knows the lyrics to "Forever" and that they're not on the prompter because it's usually a recorded track playing?

Stamos might have been the only one able to jump in.

It is so cool, on many levels...

Maybe there is some way of incorporating Carl's rendition to Dennis into the tribute section, with them singing along as well.  What I've seen on Youtube has been spectacular. [Even if verboten   Wink ]

What I like about it is I can hear the resemblance in the two brothers' voices, which I've never really noticed before. It's mostly at the beginning of the verses, where Carl's voice sounds like Dennis', although at the end of each phrase it's distinctly Carl's vibrato/perfect voice.

Rocker - I think I've heard Brian's band doing "This Whole World" - and so cool.  But, the setlist decisions are so "Solomon-like" with the dilemma of what to choose...There is just so much from which to choose.  So many little factions to make happy;  those 60-70 year olds  all the way to those in their 20's and younger and those in between.  And, they must be bombarded with things to do, interviews, promos, rehearsals, setlist modifications, just everything...   

Brian looked really happy when he was doing a section on some song, Surfer Girl, I think, which I saw on Youtube, and, really handsome. He has much of which to be very proud, as do the rest.

Yeah, it's on the Roxy album. But I was talking about the Beach Boys.  Wink



I searched the web for some pictures via google. Please excuse if one or two were already posted.


































I didn't post any pictures of Stamos introducing them.

Stamos doesn't bring anything to TBB except scattered energy. Having seen about 20 concerts. half with and half without him, the ones without him are head and shoulders above the ones with him. Please, please, please don't have him perform in SoCal. I hope his career peaks later this month and he has prior commitments and won't be able to attend more BB shows.

I do actually like the guy and talked with him after a show. His first question was "Was I OK ?" He seemed to really be trying. However, TBB don't need any help to have a great show. I just want to see them.

I just don't get it. Stamos has been a touring member since the 80s, over 20 years - that's nearly 40 years! He sounds exactly like Dennis did in his prime! Real "soulful"! I don't know why anyone ever complains about him because he sounds great. These are the facts. John Stamos, who has been with the band since the 80s, should be on stage singing real loud and adjusting Mike's shirt when he's worried that someone in the crowd might think Mike's shirt isn't up to par with his shirts in the 60s. I think he sounds great, not at all like a bloated tub of awful well past its already unimpressive prime, thus he really sounds great. The Stamos hate is tiring and needs to end solely because I disagree with it. If you make fun of Stamos, you're just jealous and want to be him.

Notice Jeff air-nudging Brian to start singing after the Forever glitch, and how John straight up robs his mic rather than move towards it. When will the theories of Stamos cutting the audio to get his glory moment start to formulate?  LOL

I don't have much of a problem with him as a person, I liked him on Full House and he seems like a good dude. But if his presence compromises the quality of the music (lousy drumming) or creates an obvious visual nuisance by him jumping around, playing rock star and gracing everyone's mic with his pointless backups, then it goes without saying that the show would be better off without him. Some MC'ing and percussion on Kokomo would be just fine. Either way I'm glad he was nowhere to be found at the reunion gig I caught.
