Did Brian ever play with a pick? I figured it was just live but for recordings he'd play with one to give it that 'cleaner' sound...

Also, did any other Beach Boy play the bass live or for recordings other than Brian and Al?

In the Surfin Safari/USA two fer you can see pics of Carl playing bass

David has said many times that the photo of Carl playing bass was "staged" and that he didn't play it on the record. Carl did play drums on one track on the first LP.

I just received David's new releases in the mail yesterday.

Something Funny Goin' On was THE surprise of 2003 for me as a Beach Boys fan, and I Think About You Often is miles ahead of it. The live album is also great.

Carrie, on David's website at least a year or so ago there were fragmentary session clips posted. Many of these did not find a home on I Think About You Often. Is David planning another CD to round up the rest of this material?

Right now David has more material to record than time or budget will allow. His next project will most likely be his own arrangements of his favorite Beach Boy songs...this concept was inspired by his recording of Dennis' You and I. He's got the sketches recorded so the project is well on its way, although no release date is set. He's also got several more CDs worth of material waiting to be recorded after that.

Did Brian ever play with a pick?

David said Brian usually used his thumb instead of his fingers or a pick.

Regarding Surfer Moon, he's not coming up with anything...as far as he remembers it was Brian.

Another little known fact regarding the drums is that David played them on Surfer Girl and the Letterman's Silly Boy during their live shows so Dennis could go up front and sing.

Look forward to reading the book Jon.

The latest 'Mojo' magazine has an interview/hepatitis c awareness promo, 'The Lost Beach Boy' featuring David on pages 94/95. Great b/w photo portrait too.

 Cool

I was doing some Googling tonight and found this in alt.music.beach-boys, from 1998:

Quote
For the more open-minded among us, there's a decent article/interview
with David Marks in the new issue of Michael Weldon's PSYCHOTRONIC
VIDEO (issue #28). Some of it's lifted from the Timothy White book, but
there are new bits of info, too, such as the three times old Lovesy
saved Dave's life, a surprising observation on Murry's role in the
studio ("He'd always be bugging everyone . . . 'More treble on the
guitars' . . . the records were clear and sharp and that was because of
Murry") and his claim that he spent close to 20 years boozing & running
around with Dennis ("If I'd have been on the boat with Dennis that day,
I'd have fallen in and drowned with him"). He also talks about the Boys
songs he's now writing-- "My songs aren't about cruising, they're about
getting stopped for drunk driving." (I wonder if Love will sue to get
his name on *that* song?)

Anyone here recall reading that interview?

I asked him and David said he would be doing something with music regardless.  He wrote and recorded his first original song 2 - 2 1/2 years before Surfin' so the Beach Boys didn't put David on the musical path...but they did accelerate him down it.  Architecture is the only thing he said he could see himself doing besides music.

As for Brian, he said "God didn't put all that music inside of Brian for it not to come out.  He would have found some why to express himself even if he didn't have the Beach Boys.  How successful it would have been is another story."  He went on to say that if Brian didn't make it as a songwriter or engineer/producer, he probably would have been the Music teacher or P.E. Coach at Hawthorne High.

He said Mike would be doing something public - sales or maybe politics.  He said (without hesitation) that Carl would do something with cars - probably selling them.  And Dennis - he said he would be a VERY successful salesman because he could convince anyone to do anything.  He figured Al would be a department manager in a large corporation and Bruce would have continued on his own as a producer and songwriter.

I think that  the 3 Wilson brothers, especially Dennis, would probably have experimented in the hippy, drug culture had their been a BBs or not. But they might have straightened up a lot sooner.

In general, the book turned out better than we could have hoped.  Virgin did a really good job of staying true to our original vision which was great.  In fact, they did very little editing...most of their changes only served to give Jon a British accent.

The best part for me has been watching the response from David's close friends and family as they begin to read it.  I think it may have been easier to open up to an anonymous public than it was to reveal those emotions to his immediate circle –  the ones he’d been trying to convince he didn’t care.  But the people who love him have been really affected by this book and have all commented on how they feel they understand David better now and respect him even more.  A few of the tougher guys even admit to crying on the last page. 

But getting off the serious stuff, what I'm really looking forward to is the US Book Release Party at Rusty's Surf ranch on the Santa Monica Pier on May 29th. 

We are inviting the whole "cast of characters" from the book so it will be nice to have everyone together in one place to thank them in person...and to celebrate.  The rest of the night will be performances with various configurations of people David has played with or is some how related to the book.

We are still working out the details of the line-up but there will be limited tickets available for the public for the event (Rusty's only holds 300 max).  Info will be coming soon for those who don't want to miss it!

Hello,

We're doing the definitive vocal credits thread, and I wonder if David could answer the question of who the carnival barker is on "County Fair" is? Thanks.

Also, can he confirm that it's Nik Venet barking on "Moon Dawg"?

Nik was the carnival barker and did the howling on Moon Dawg.

Hope that helps...
