 LOL

What a joke that site is. The last news deemed relevant was over a year ago. Some of the $400 for the Chase tickets could pay someone who can read and keep the site up to date.

My local legendary sports columnist, Sid Hartman (a nonagenarian still at it), mentioned the movie in his column this morning. Not exactly a natural topic for a sports blurb, but the Minnesota Twins baseball team are owned by the Pohlad family; Bill Pohlad is the director. Nothing especially exciting in the mention though. More just an unexpected mention.

"ē Twins owner Bill Pohladís ďLove & Mercy,Ē a biographical film about Beach Boys lead singer Brian Wilson, will premier at the Toronto International Film Festival on Sunday night. Itís the first movie Pohlad has directed since 1990 and is considered an awards contender. It tells two stories of Wilsonís life, one set in the 1960s and one in the 1980s."

Several people stated that no BBs music is gonna be played in the movie. Im OK with that, but I think they really need to put well know music in the trailer, so the general public can be atracted by the movie. Some snippet of Wouldn' it be nice or California girls for example.

Well I hope I'm wrong too! In fact, in my opinion, it would be impossible to make a movie about Brian/BBs without including their music, at least little snippets here and there. But I've read it in 2 o 3 places, for example from Wikipedia (soundtrack part):

English composer Atticus Ross was commissioned for an original score.[27] Of Wilson's music being incorporated in the film, director Bill Pohlad clarified, "We're not thinking about this as the hit paradeóthat would be the biopic thing."[13]

Here's the full excerpt that Wikipedia doesn't show:
Quote
Rights to many of Wilson's songs have been secured — producers are working closely with Wilson and wife Melinda — but Pohlad said the tunes will inform the story, not dominate it. "We're not thinking about this as the hit parade — that would be the biopic thing," he said.

Guitarfool will have a field day with that photo

Just logging in after the weekend away...yep, my field day is in full gear!  Grin

Columbia studios, circa 1966. They got the unique console Columbia had at that time, with the massive patch bay behind the board. Really cool. Can't wait to see the whole thing!

It can be tough to source original gear like that which is 50 years old and in many cases long gone or parted out...if not scrapped. Check out how many original Bill Putnam modular consoles/boards exist in 2014. I know Neil Young owns one, the board which Wally Heider used for mobile live recordings still exists, I believe Mark Linett owns a Western board from Studio 2, but apart from that they're not easy to find. Columbia's board setup was so unique, I'm thinking they could come close mocking it up without finding the original and that photo looks pretty good.

Did I hear it correct that they filmed studio scenes at Ocean Way because the location folks must have thought it had the best "vintage" look? Or was it another LA studio? Can't recall.

Looks like were going for a composite effect for the set and costuming in that frame: And it looks to be based on the Western and Columbia film footage from the GV sessions in '66, and I'm guessing also those still photos of Brian, Tony Asher, Terry Melcher, and Bruce at Columbia in '66 were a visual/historical reference. In those you can see that odd patch bay setup clear and in color. Finding a replica is another story...

Western showing Brian wearing that vest, then Brian working the Columbia Studio A board in '66:
