Has California Saga performed since the reunion tour? They're going to be on hand to give an Ella Award to Mike Love next month. I find it weird that Mike is getting an award for his singing, considering past recipients have included people such as Tony Bennett and Smokey Robinson. Herb Alpert received the award, as well, and he's not that great of a singer.  In any case, this is the blurb for the award (hosted by John Stamos, naturally):

Among the sea of award shows and galas in these first months of 2014, the Society of Singers much beloved ELLA will, once again, be a most memorable evening as it has been since honoring Ella herself back in 1989.


Hosted by Actor/Singer/Musician John Stamos, the 21st ELLA will be presented to legendary singer, Mike Love, founding member of the Beach Boys. The 3rd VOICE Award will be presented to the dynamic Waters Family whose voices can be heard on hundreds of gold & platinum recordings for the last 50 years! And, the 1st ever, INDUSTRY LEADERSHIP AWARD, will be presented to Nigel Lythgoe, Executive Producer of American Idol & So You Think You Can Dance Executive Producer and Creator.


Paying tribute to this evenings honorees include performances by:  America, Darren Criss of Glee, Ariana Grande of Victorious, Micky Dolenz, Lucy Lawless of Xena, John Stamos, Rita Wilson, and CALIFORNIA SAGA — The Beach Boys Children: Wendy Wilson, Carney Wilson (both of Wilson Phillips), and the children of Carl, Brian, Dennis, and Mike!


I wonder how the evening will handle the post-reunion political situation? It might be interesting.

I'd love to see Cal Saga perform again, but tix are $250 minimum. Ouch.

On that website, it actually states "Live Performances by The Beach Boys". I'm assuming M&B.

They couldn't spell Carnie's name right, either, so perhaps they forgot about Al Jardine and his sons.

Matt's in so many bands, he could have a gig already booked elsewhere.

Edit: I mean in the sense of a prior commitment, not as a snub, folks. I suspect the people who put the Ella Award pr together just made an error re the Jardine brothers.

Right, like the inclusion of Carney (sic), Wendy and... Brian's kids.  Yeah, I know he has other kids but not in the singing group.

I am currently on my phone so I apologise for the link instead of a picture! I have just seen this picture posted by the Society of Singers and to me it looks like the guitarist on Mike's right is Jeff Foskett. Am I mistaken or has he popped along?

Sorry if people can't see the link, just type Society of Singers twitter into google if you don't have the app/twitter.

I think much of the more recent fallout is a product of our own furtive imaginings. This is more than a band, it's a mix of family and friends. The incomers (the wives) might not see eye to eye on everything but blood runs deep.

Make it so…

Nelson Bragg recently responded to some of the stories some fans were concocting on Al's FB page:

"#1 Ocean Way studios....#2 Mike didn't/couldn't fire anyone. #3 No 5 man reunion ever again....it's the Mike and Bruce show. nb"

Isn't that Brian looking thirty years younger behind Stamos and Al? Grin

I don't know, but Mike looks eerily like he did 25 years ago for his Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame speech.

Did he instruct anyone to "kick out the jams?"  LOL

Nice pic, nice to see more confirmation that Mike isn't pissed at Al (or vice versa) again.

Stamos must love this scene. He gets to brownnose with the Beach Boys, and he comparatively looks 5,000 years younger when posing next to those guys.  LOL

I like to think that Al & Jeff were sent as envoys to broker a peace between the non-cousin elements of the Wilson and Love households, and that the award was in fact originally offered to Brian but he passed and asked instead, as a kinda peace offering, that it be given to Mike.

But then I ask what AGD's response to that theory would be, slap myself in the face, and tell myself to shaddap!

And in response to the ageist comments above*, I think they all look pretty good considerin' – Bruce needs to re-tie his dicky tho – and don't forget, David is actually younger than Stamos (whose tan cannot be real).

Enough… back to work…
