Or maybe the fact that everyone around him was treating him like a circus elephant made him angry.
Ang, maybe I missed something, but I haven't seen anyone doubt the idea that Brian Wilson had some fury or deny the possibility that he assaulted Mike Love. Do you think that's happening here?
I honestly think that some people are pointing out likely inaccuracies because they seem to be specific likely inaccuracies; or pointing out that Rocky's writing style makes everyone sound as uncouth and vulgar as he is (though it's working, I'm beginning to think they were); I don't think they are saying the essence of the whole thing is untrue.

No doubt some people are pointing out possible inaccuracies because they are sticklers for the truth. Some may also wish to believe that Brian and Mike, though having some differences, have a really good relationship. Perhaps it began that way - the evidence suggests there have been seriously bad patches at least.

Well, if they believe that then I fully agree that they're off-base.

I agree, but I think when it comes to relationships between band members (and family members), it's not all black or white. I can remember Brian having very nice words for both Mike and Carl as well as moments of what seems like rage or resentment at various stages in his life. I suppose it all depends on the moment he's asked to reflect on it... I think Brian will always say what comes to his mind without thinking of polishing his feelings.

Of course things aren't black and white. The only black and white type of speak I ever hear is from Mike in his actual comments like these: "I know my relationship with Brian". "So no one can tell me how my relationship is with Brian.”

In other words: Mike is always right, and everyone else is always wrong. And any possible passive-aggressive action that Brian has ever taken against Mike has always, 100% for certain, been because of some outside (non-Mike) forces compelling Brian to do so. I can only fathom narcissists like Murry or Landy saying such black and white defensive drivel, but Mike's defensiveness and outright refusal to consider other points of view gives those nutjobs a run for their money.

I don't know why Mike doesn't come out and publicly say that he hates Melinda, and that he hates every single person surrounding Brian, past or present, because to make a statement like the one I just quoted of Mike's, it very much implies that it's absolutely, unquestionably, 100% everybody else's fault but his own that he and Brian have a strained relationship.

Well, I'm fairly sure he also blames Brian because he did a lot of drugs and that messed up the money-making machine. That, of course, fails to acknowledge that Brian has been mentally ill for most of his life. To me, that's the whole thing about Mike: he can't recognize that Brian was sick and that it affected his whole life. When he needed help, he got only blame from his cousin. Of course, the whole truth can never be know about that particular relationship, but that's how I see it.

We had it coming, though. Rocky had promised a Mike story, we got it, and here we go again.

Line by line would be cool. We used to do this back at the old Capitol Board (The Adventures of My Glove and The Beachy Heads).

C'mon Rocky, be your own man. Are you gonna let that publisher tell you what you can and can't do? YOU'RE the author, it's YOUR book, YOU decide whether you post more here or not.

Hell, if my publisher told me want to do in front of a crowded message board, I'd knock his whimp-ass lights out.

Rocky is as Rocky does! Be a hero! Feed the hunger! Eat more Wheaties!

I believe you can generally take the amount of reads on a Smiley Smile thread times 10 to get the amount of books that will sell in the first week.

As for 75,000 reads, I'm guessing you're responsible for maybe 100 of those. You gonna buy 100 copies of your own book ?
