Hi Brian,

Great pleasure to talk to you and thanks for answering these questions.

You've spoken a lot about being competitive with The Beathles. I am curious over whether you felt any competition from your local contemporaries such as The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, Love, etc.?

Thanks again!

The Doors - there's so many. I liked the Monkees - I'm a Believer - Neil Diamond. A group called the Kingsman.

I've been in a Monkees Mode for a couple-a-months now.  Grin

Cant get that song "Look OUT Here Comes Tomorrow" outa my head for nothing...

I've wondered were they talking about the Stock Market?

Hey Little Tomboy is creepy. Banging women by the pool is fun and conjures up warm summer thoughts a Beach Boys song should.

Maybe I put too much faith in atmosphere

If my memory serves me right, The Doors and The Monkees were the first two groups to use a Moog, The Doors to treat Jim's voice on the title track of Strange Days and The Monkees slightly later as an instrument in its own right. Might that be why Brian brought up The Monkees next?

The Kingsmen were a rival live group in the early days and the source (in part) of "Louie Louie"...
