Smiley Smiley So, when Mike-y LEVITATED (the only time in his spiritual life) and shook my hand over and over again while calling me a hero for the "NO DRUGS KNOCK OUT PUNCH!"  he later... turned on Stephen...(and BETRAYED Stephen) for sending him that AWFUL telegram that read: "NOW IS NOT THE TIME IN YOUR LIFE TO BE STUPID"... Get back here (from your ashram) and rehearse with the band... FOR THE TOUR in TWO WEEKS!  I told Stephen then, "Maybe it's not such a GOOD IDEA  to call a STUPID person STUPID!"  It's like trying to teach a PIG to sing... It doesn't work... and it "IRRITATES" THE PIG!  Mike-y ALL OF A SUDDEN... has a CHANGE OF HEART! (Huh... what a joke... HEART?) and "DECIDES" TO NOW SIDE WITH Dennis and Carl... to have Stephen REMOVED as MANAGER!  Makes "PERFECT SENSE"... You ALWAYS FIRE THE GUY WITH INTEGRITY... who RESURRECTS YOUR FLOUNDERING CAREER... INVESTS YOUR MONEY and MAKES EACH of YOU MILLIONS... and then there's that little matter of SAVING Brian's LIFE!  "THAT NEVER HAPPENED"... Marilyn didn't call Stephen when she walked in on Brian offering...(well, you know what) to their 7yr-old daughter!  And Stephen didn't "BEG" Marilyn not to have Brian COMMITTED to a MENTAL HOSPITAL (Shhh... don't say that too loud... the "angry 13" don't like to hear that... It's not respectful of Brian)  Where was I?  Oh, then Stephen hired Stan (when his name was still spelled with a capital "S") and that  "BULLY" Rocky (in the immortal words of David Frost... Shhh... Don't speak ill of the dead... We must be politically correct!) for after all it was those two "THUGS" (that Stephen hired) who "DARED" to keep "DRUGS OUT OF Brian's LIFE"... FOR THREE YEARS!... the FIRST THREE YEARS I MIGHT ADD... for those FIRST FEW YEARS are ALWAYS THE MOST CRUCIAL YEARS for the simple reason that if DRUGS are "NOT" kept out of the DRUG addict's life... "THEY OFTENTIMES ARE NOT HERE WITH US ANY LONGER, as in... they "DIE"!!!!  But who want's to be a stickler?  It's just a little "minor" point...  Brian still being ALIVE TODAY (at 73 yrs young), but who's keeping track of inconsequential facts like that?  I mean, what's IMPORTANT IS THAT Mike-y WROTE ALL THE SONGS... RIGHT, Mike-y ... Isn't that what you told Stan and me to...  LOL LOL  Shhh... People get "KILLED" for saying the TRUTH! (If anything "EVER" happens to me... YOU All KNOW WHO DID IT!)

Rocky, was the whole incident with Stephen calling Mike "stupid", in your opinion based on your observations, some sort of unusual occurrence between these guys, and between members of the band in general? Was it a freak one-off incident? Did nobody else ever stand up to or talk to Mike that way? Or were words/insults like that thrown around between one another more regularly, and this one incident just happened to set Mike off? I would have guessed that between all of the Boys, as well as the Love brothers, that it wouldn't have been all that unusual for words like "stupid" to be directed at one another every now and then.

Smiley Smiley No one would "Dare" call someone... "Stupid"... who's last report card in high school... was ALL"D"s and one "F"... which "Stan"-d  for "D"umb and "F"u*king Dumber!  The one time M"l"ke-y went to Stephen's pad on The Strand in Manhattan Beach... was to tell Stephen... I DON'T WANT MY YOUNGER BROTHER... TELLING ME WHAT TO DO! LOL LOL   It was an "ISOLATED" incident... meaning it happened "ONE" time!  Mike-y's EGO is so FRAGILE... that Stephen simply insinuating "NOW" is not the time to be "STUPID" "ONE" time meant "WAR" to Mike-y's bald ears... I mean EARS without hair on them!  It was "ONE" of the few mistakes Stephen ever made ... but it did cost him dearly!  Like I said... NEVER TRY TO TEACH A "PIG" TO SING...         IT NEVER WORKS... AND IT IRRITATES THE "PIG!" Transcendental Meditation LOL  SOON Mike-y WILL BE SINGING "GOD ONLY KNOWS WHAT I WAS THINKING" WHEN I WAS soooooo "STUPID!" to have "CROSSED" Brian!  The Fans Now Boo Me Off Stage... THERE'S NOWHERE TO RUN... NOWHERE TO HIDE! LOL LOL

I think Knockout would be a more appropriate name for the book at this point.

I think "(Dumber Than) A Box Of Rocks", with a subtitle "Rocky's Greatest Hits", with a reference to Dennis and Carl.

Smiley Smiley Not to get all Islamic on the Smile readers, I think it is appropriate to mention a key passage from the Qur'an that pertains to an important covenant. Before I get to that I want to explain that Muhammad was born circa 570 in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.  He is considered the last known prophet.  He gave the world the Qur'an.  The Qur'an is revered as the word of God, dictated to Muhammad by the archangel Gabriel.  It is accepted as the foundation of Islamic law, religion, culture, and politics.  
     The covenant I am referring to says:  "Be good to your parents, relatives, friends, orphans and the destitute.  You shall not expel your own people from your homes."  He warned about killing one's own people, expelling a family member from your homes, harming each other with sin and aggression, and asked:  "So what punishment do such people among you, who behave like this, deserve?  Disgrace in this world and to be driven to grievous punishment on the day of judgment.
     Allah is not unaware of what you do.  As for the people who trade the life of the hereafter for the life of this world, neither their punishment shall be lightened nor shall they be helped.  Those who commit evil and become encircled in sins are the inmates of hellfire; they shall dwell therein forever.  As for those who believe and do good deeds, they will be the residents of paradise and live therein forever.'

What virgins?? (ducking)

Who knew that, just like "Johnny Carson," the way he (Rocky) keeps it up could make you cry (with tears of laughter)?

Reading this (in whole or in part, depending on one's level of stamina...) it really is amazing that the BBs survived the 70s--the second half of the decade (and '78-'79 in particular) was just brutal.

The question that should be asked here (IMO) is what Rocky may know about the financial history of Mike Love--a man who lives up to the line in "I Just Got My Pay" ("I like spending my money")...

Don't stop at 100,000, Rocky, go for a quarter-million! Hold out for the big bucks!!

Rocky, I just listened to California Feeling last night (it's been awhile since I listened to it).  Great job on the vocal  Smiley I've always liked that and it would not have been out of place on a Beach Boys Lp.  Did any of the other guys object to you recording a vocal, maybe feeling a little worried Brian might use you more?

It's sad.  I was actually feeling the family tragedy here.  Greed, betrayal, more greed, more betrayal.  Then it all turns into people aggressively attacking each other again - here.  

No wait, am I watching American politics or America's Band?  I guess one can't separate the two.  Metaphor meets a weird form of reality - it always has with this band and this family.  Poetry, I guess, maybe...or just plain heart-broken comments.

Thank heavens for the music.
 
Smiley Smiley It is sad... I told everyone "Wipeout" is a story of DECEIT and BETRAYAL... where FAMILY ARE FAIR GAME! Smiley Smiley "Good Vibrations is where Brian checked out!  (You do the math)  Debbie, are you the girl that went to Hawaii with Brian when we went there in '78?

Yes, I am that girl - well, a much older lady now but, yes.  I actually didn't remember the year, since I didn't keep a journal.

BTW - may I apologize these decades later for being skeptical about your singing for Brian in the car ride to the airport?  I'm afraid I had just seen him indulge far too many barely adequate singers to make them happy.  You; however, sounded really good on "California Feelin'."  I had no idea.

The version collectors have had since, oh, the mid 80s, has Brian only on the tag - the rest of the vocals are Marilyn, Diane and yourself. Recorded at Brother, summer 1977. A Tuesday, as I recall.

Yes, I've had it since the late 80s/early 90s.  Still a good version.  The Boys were obviously concerned enough that they wanted to put out their own version.  Shame it didn't happen at the time.
