It really is. This is a 7.8 magnitude earthquake in the Beach Boys world.

My guess is that Brian is going to retire from touring...

I don't think Darian is with him either these days.

As permanent member? Wow, that is really unexpected. Brian will retire and do studio stuff or Jeff joining Mike's band is just the first step into building a new Wilson/Love band. But that was executed so nicely on the Beach Boys tour in 2012....

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

Interesting development... Although I wouldn't read too much into it as of now.

I've suspected for a while that Brian was retiring from touring. Many of the members of the Brian Wilson Band seem to have taken other employment, and if you follow them on Facebook, many list Brian as a former employer. I've been a little bit worried that health issues may be to blame. Last year, his Facebook was pretty busy with pictures of recording sessions prior to the tour with Beck, but now they mostly post older pictures with the occasional shot of Brian in the studio. I hope his back hasn't gotten worse, but it wouldn't surprise me if he's decided he's done with full out tours, as opposed to the occasional performance here and there.

Some artists or bands don’t need all of the musicians to “stay” or “leave”; they simply grab their band members if available when they go out on tour. Brian has had some members come and go, either temporarily or permanently. I would imagine, unlike someone like McCartney who probably puts his band under a contract/retainer for periods of time, Brian’s band is probably employed tour-by-tour. To keep a full band on retainer/contract requires either a lot of money, and/or a large enough tour schedule to warrant paying the band members for large blocks of time (e.g. most likely the case with Mike’s band).

I would imagine, though, that Foskett signing on “full time” with Mike’s band indicates a strong possibility of either a falling out/parting of the ways with Brian’s camp, or Brian informing band members that there is no substantial, full-length touring happening for the foreseeable future. Despite the apparent/perceived delays in Brian’s new album, I would say that his continued recording, as well as the couple of European dates, and a possibly forthcoming biopic and/or album that would include potential touring, indicates a stronger possibility of the former being true rather than the latter.

This scenario also leads to Matt Jardine’s brief appearance in the studio to do “guide vocals” for Brian making a lot more sense.

The Brian Wilson machine is punishing Jeff for appearing at the Ella Awards. But nobody puts Jeff Foskett in the corner!  Razz

So, Brian is taking a little break, Jeff will be touring with BBs for a while,   Dave and Al are playing one show with the Mike led Band. 
What's so gawrsh darn exciting about that?

Jeff is being announced as a permanent member of the touring Beach Boys. That's a lot different than saying he's a fill in. It's a major break between Jeff and Brian. It's kind of sad whether Brian handles being Jeff-less very well or not. Jeff was the wind beneath Brian's wings, especially in his early days of solo touring.

And production aside, I’d so much rather hear a 14 year old David Marks shred some guitar on Chug-a-lug than hear a 51 year old Mike Love sing about bangin some chick in a swimming pool.-rab2591

Does Foskett have a Facebook page? Maybe one of his Facebook friends should ask him directly.

My wife raised the possibility to me that if this album he is working on includes the "Life Suite" it may be the last album he is planning on putting out. Maybe a few more shows, an album, and after the movie he wants to be done.  Cry

Good for Mike's group. The split last year really threatened to undermine the touring group's credibility -- and now he's managed to pull everything together with a nice bow on it. Good for everyone involved, and I hope to see them soon.

Two threads here suddenly need merging!


I reckon Jeff will play with abroad when the need arises. Brian's live commitments are fewer and fewer, and Matt or Christian or others could maybe help out the MB line-up occasionally.

I see no split between BW and JF.

No, really? I'm still under the impression you're out touring countrysides now. perhaps you've come into some $$ and will be a country lord the rest of your time....
