Even though Mike was hesitant to add "Marcella" I'm glad he eventually agreed to add it.  In the video I took at the Beacon of the first time it was performed you can see Mike give Brian a smile and a small thumbs up (00:10 below)...he's clearly grooving on it.  After the song is over Mike realizes that it is in fact a great song and says, "Thanks Brian...that was cool!  You're getting to do songs you don't normally get to!" Brian smiles back at him.  So in the end, he embraced the choice.  Compromise = a successful Beach Boys reunion.

Marcella is a song Brian doesn't normally get to do? Brian has been doing it in his solo act for years. Cool about the compromise, though.

Right...but I guess Mike didn't know that.

From the article:

"Mike's an entertainer.  Brian is an artist," says band member Jeff Foskett.  "There's room for both, but it's hard to reconcile."

In addition to being one fine musician, Jeff is a very smart and perceptive man!

BTW
the opening picture (The Boys at a diner, finishing a meal) is worth the price of the magazine.  A riot!  Keeper!

I thought the article was great. No idea why there was so little mention of David though. Odd. I don't even remember a quote.

Some very good Brian and Al stuff though. Al appears to be pretty much exactly as you'd expect him to be.

Seems like Brian's band is the reason Stamos disappeared.

I'm going to ensure everybody goes out and buys the issue with this :

It details how Al couldn't figure out how to flush a toilet on a flight.  He gave up, and went and asked the flight attendant.

I'm tellin' ya, peebles, ya gotta buy this issue.  (And I usually hate Rolling Stone.)

Brian and Mike are at some restaurant in Florida, on their night off:

Brian asks, "Isn't Kokomo around here, Mike?  Somewhere down around the Florida keys, right?  We should go there."

But it's totally deadpan so you don't know if he's joking.

Brian is a riot!  Love the Lovester too!

 LOL

Yeah, and the story about Brian's last time with Carl.... well gosh........

Thank you, startbb. I'm always fascinated to see who gets these assignments. I'm encouraged by this news. I think the Newsweek writer was a bad appointment.

The article in Rolling Stone is much better than the one in Newsweek.

Ahh, c'mon, someone hook it up with a scan! I always hook everyone up when I can.  Grin

I'm stuck in the studio and can't travel hours to get a copy right now... Would greatly appreciate it!

Since I don't live in the US and the local edition of Rolling Stone doesn't feature this article, I would REALLY like to be able to read it. I'm willing to part with some of my precious eternal gratitude.

What a superb article. It hit all the right notes for me- offering us a peek into their world instead of trying to regurgitate their entire history.

 I got chills and my eyes watered a bit reading about Brian's last words to Carl. (Ok, just thinking about it again to type the sentence I just typed made my eyes water again- ah!)
