This thread has gone up on e place in the charts, overtaking "Donations".

But soon to be overtaken in its turn by (fanfares and alarums) "BEACHB-oysters' (sand-corny) POETRY PEARLS - YULEtide-edit...", at present at #349 with a bullet (#2047 last week). Smokin

Trying to figure out just why it's difficult to accept why Brian laid into myKe luHv. It's a no brainer if I ever heard one. Quite honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't deck Murry at one time or another.
I, personally, am not doubting as a concept that Brian snapped either at Murry or Mike Love (or anyone really, it can happen). eta: he was being treated like a circus elephant at this point, and we all know what happens when they get loose - they justifiably are not happy with humans.
I'm a bit skeptical, however, of an unreported public brawl with a parade clown.

Brian wasn't a Beatle. He was (and is) still relatively anonymous to a great many people in the public, especially with as many inconsistent different looks/weights he's had. I could imagine this happened as described, and could easily have slipped under the radar of it being reported.
I think anyone assaulting a clown in a parade would be reported in the local news. And I think that Brian Wilson was familiar enough to the media that when they reported a man assaulting a clown, they would have noticed that that man was Brian Wilson.

Assault happens on a daily basis, I don't think every assault is reported to their respective local radio station.  If you don't believe Rocky why not just say so without the rubbish excuses lol  LOL

Because I don't disbelieve Rocky across the board. I just have trouble believing this particular anecdote as reported, for the reasons stated. This isn't a back-alley assault. It's a very public assault by Brian Wilson on a clown in a parade where the media would already be present. lol   LOL

In 2016 with everyone having iPhones? Yep. In the late 70s, all it took would have been no media/news people in eyeshot of the punching incident (this doesn't seem too terribly unlikely), no bystanders who recognized Brian who called the news (this doesn't seem too terribly unlikely either), and a clown who just feared for his safety and slunk away... or called the cops, but the cops arrived after Brian left.
I hear the clown is working on his own book. Just wait until HE starts posting here!

John Wayne Gacy was active as a clown in the Chicago area around this time. It was also mentioned that when Gacy received beatings from his father, he would not fight back but rather put his hands up to shield himself, much like the clown in this scenario.

It would help to know what hotel they were staying in. For parades you need permits, traffic control, etc. If it's a central part of town it's almost always reported. Here are parades/rallies that I found in the Chicago Tribune, 1978:
St. Patrick’s Day Parade
Good Friday Parade
State Street Christmas Parade
Memorial Day Parade
Veterans Day Parade
Several Independence Day parades
Toys for Tots Motorcycle parade – December 13
Puerto Rican People’s Parade – June 25
Hare Krishna Parade anticipated Saturday July 8
Chicagofest started Friday August 4
Bud Billiken Day Parade – August 12
Nazi rally Marquette Park - July 9
 “Armed Forces Week” starting with a parade on May 20
Nudist Parade, Zion Illinois – August 10

For those who aren't American, none of the holidays listed are on or near July 22.

Shocked !!
Rocky, did the clown look like this?

If so, your book just went from Kardashian to 48 Hours!

Wow, Emily, that's a diverse list of parades:

Nazis, nudists, toys for tots. Hare Krishna.  

At least the nudist one was in summer.

Pray, tell your favourite part of the story Rocky, so we can get it over with, and then none of us will need to buy the book. Shheeeeesh ! Isn't part of promoting a book giving the occasional teaser out, in other words a chapter synopsis or two, and not a number of the actual storylines ? I bet your publisher, if you find one, will have difficulty getting over the fact that no-one NEEDS to buy the book as you've already told us much of it already... and what you have revealed clearly isn't helping any potential sales...
