I think he took all of the drugs he confiscated from BW.

This would sound a lot better as a first person account.  And many parts are need of the services of a professional copy editor.

For example, "Some slicksters tried to slip him drugs, which Stan and Rocky immediately confiscated." This needs further explanation. "Slicksters" tried to slip Brian drugs? How exactly did these "slicksters" attempt to do this? What was Brian's response? How did Brian and the "slciksters" react when the drugs were confiscated?

Another quick example, "Danny looked at Stan and Rocky, who nodded and succinctly said, 'One grasshopper - no vodka - and don't even think about trying to slip something in it!'" This reads as though you and Stan were speaking in unison, which I assume was not the case.
Smiley Custom Machine, thank you...for catching my omission... I forgot to type in...(after one grasshopper-no vodka) "Stan added,""and don't even think about...etc. (I corrected it). But we did say... one grasshopper-no-vodka... in unison. In regards to slicksters trying to slip drugs to Brian?... " there are many ways"... shaking hands...dropping something in a coat pocket... back pants pocket..."from close hugs"... then whispering the whereabouts. We really had to be on our toes to know what to look for... for instance... a rolled up clenched fist, by Brian, after a hand shake and then Brian quickly putting his hand in his pocket... or suddenly wanting to go to the rest room... or just dropping something in his drink! The list goes on and on... and it never ceases! They give it freely... thinking it makes them cool...and just to get a wink or a nod from the "star!" Never occurring to them they might be killing Brian! C M... I made an "exception" and responded to your comments "about my book" today because you gave me LePage's name. Also, thanks for the heads up on my omission (Stan added). Tell mtaber and catlag to write their own book! Smiley Smiley

Rocky, that part  you just wrote would be good to add into the passage.  It would go something like,

"Some Slicksters tried to slip him drugs, which Stan and Rocky immediately confiscated.  That was the norm back then for a rich rock star like Brian, and it could be done in many ways.  Shaking hands, dropping something in a coat pocket..." etc.

And then just continue with the rest of what you said.

Keep the posts coming! Smiley

Smiley Mikeddonn... Not bad! And I certainly will keep the posts coming! Smiley Smiley

Thank you Rocky!  Grin.

I also think you make a good point about Dennis.  The praise would have been a real tonic for him, especially if he had went on and done a tour to promote Pacific Ocean Blue.

I look forward to Part 4!  Grin

I really think this guy needs a ghost writer.

You're right, of course. Originally I was getting the impression that this book was already a done deal but it's unpublishable in its current state – or what we've seen of its current state, which suggests any ghost writer would have to dig out a lot more meat to put on these bones.
Smiley Manning...WHAT IS THE CURRENT STATE OF YOUR BOOK? That's what I thought... You can't write so you criticize! Keep up the good work! Speaking of work do you and these other wankers even have a JOB? Grin Grin

As much as I'm enjoying the high comedy here, did you fry your brain on free nicotine and tar all those years you were playing Joe Camel or were you just born this dumb? You have made absolutely no sense for 45 pages.
Smiley southbay...whoever you are... "CONGRATULATIONS" you have just joined the "angry half dozen." Can you count to 45? Right On Dude" South Bay Rules! Keep puffing da kine bra! Smiley Smiley

You are a goon trying to make money off your 5 minutes of fame leeching off the Wilson family. You need to thank Steven Gaines for even making you a familiar name at all. Hell, he told your story just fine without the trash you post here.

"SELF AWARENESS" is not a STRONG suit, "apparently."

Nor is the ability to discern between hostility and what seemed to me to be genuinely (and generous) well-meant constructive criticism.

I concur.

It seems like Rocky needs us more than we need him. He's the one after all the "reads". We already have lots of good "reads" about the Beach Boys and Brian as it is. And not from this thread.

Was a major part of the problems around BW. Running a private prison of your employer is never a good idea. Plus all the other drama with Carl and Dennis shows what slime this guy is. Steven Gaines should watch to see when you plagiarize his book.

Both my books have sold pretty well, thanks for asking, but then one was published by Her Majesty's Stationery Office and the other by the Automobile Association, and both were commissioned in advance of me putting pen to paper so I suppose you could say they had an unfair advantage.

One of the two magazines I edit for a living is gaining sales hand-over-fist – probably up 20–30% year-on-year – against the world-wide print-publishing industry trend. Again, thanks for asking. Stick that in your palm and shake it.

Rocky, I think it's great seeing, if not exactly reading, all your posts. Personally, I'm just thankful that we can finally have the story of Brian Wilson told with all the ellipses, emojis, and caps lock it deserves. I look forward to the book and strongly recommend against any editorial input. Put it out as-is. That would be spectacular.

All of this vitriol saddens me...I was hoping that Andrew would provide the foreward to Rushton's book!  LOL

The thing is, it's a chicken or the egg scenario. Anyone that would be loco enough to ghost write this 'teenager's diary' would have his work cut out for him. The brave soul that would agree to put these ramblings into coherent English would have to be paid, and I dunno that there's a budget for that.

But it keep it com'in Rushton. It's entertaining and it's free.

Part: 17  "Wha--Ooh"

After I was no longer working for BRIAN WILSON...I was the Marlboro Man...then I went downtown to LOOK FOR A JOB...there were NO JOBS!!!!! So I hung out in front of the drug store. On the second day of my unemployment...I went downtown to LOOK FOR A JOB...and there were NO JOBS!!! So I hung out in front of the drug store. On the third day of my unemployment...
