Billy is SS's left wing ambassador....

I don't see the point in punishing Brian's musical output solely because Mike wants to wow the President Elect with how long he can weeze "wheeeeeeen" into a microphone.- rab2591

Exactly. I despise the man , no doubt about it, and he just may be the only person in the world whom I truly hate in every sense of the word,  but I would not use certain words to describe him that he has used on others. I do not see what was homophobic about my comment, and what one would actually *do* with a baby owl, cuffs, and poppers boggles the mind.

Edit

I get the connection now. .. I meant it more along the lines of him being completely devoted to Mike like a Love-struck teenage girl and willing to do anything to earn those back row seats at the county fair. I wouldn't care if they were legit lovers,  I'm not like that at all. Wasn't thinking along those lines when I said it . To use another analogy, it's like Mike is the master  and Andrew is Rover,  always willing to play fetch like the good puppy he is. Who's a good boy? Andrew! And he's even mostly house trained! And if he has an accident,  Mike's book makes an excellent substitute for newspaper.

Nah, he would anything for Love, but he won't do that.

Is Doe really that important of a Beach Boys historian? Has he done any kind of research comparable to Craig Slowinski or James B. Murphy? Or Ian Rusten and Jon Stebbins? His website seems to be just a compilation of info from other sources. Useful, perhaps, but not essential, and it could be done much better -- it's a badly-designed and a chore to look at, what with its garish colors and tacky wooden boardwalk backgrounds. I'm reminded of websites from the 90s. All that's missing is a "hits counter" at the bottom of the page.

The Beach Boys fan community can do much better than Doe. Indeed, others have contributed (and are contributing) much more to research on the band, and they're doing it without Doe's attitude.

Couldn't leave this one alone. I have no opinion on Doe, but in terms of providing a user-friendly compendium available to everyone, nobody else has come close, and it's doubtful they ever will. There are many individuals on this forum who have shelled out literally thousands of dollars collecting every piece of literature ever written about the band. With those resources, they could start a Bellagio rival, but nah, they'd rather bicker about Mike Love or fantasize about what the Beach Boys would be like if they were born female. Best thing we got is the 2 or 3 people who have been beefing up the Beach Boys Wikipedia pages for the past decade or so.

Honorable mention: The Beach Boys Fan Club's Liner Notes Archive. Wonder why they stopped archiving after 1999.

I disagree, Doe just hosted information that C-man, Ian Rustan, Howie Edelson, and Jon Stebbins. Hell Brad Elliot and Mike Eder did more work for the BBs community than Doe.

I was about to lose my temper.  Grin My friendship with Mike Eder predates this board.  Mike had a rather public breakdown and caused a few people to become very worried, but I believe he's ok now. I wish he would come back to the board, but I understand that this place might not be the best environment for him.

I have wished for quite some time now that one of the well known "scholars" of The Beach Boys would compile one huge "reference of historical data" book(or anthology book series) on the group. Basically the Bellagio website in book form.

Mike is a class act. Be well, Mike.

Agree about Mike Eder, I liked this poster. The way some people treated him back then was very rude.

Short notice: the cat you see to the left is the best. Not counting your indoor cat who might have habit sitting at your left side when you post in SmileySmile.

Cat is creature, everybody creature. (Best rhymes Anthology)

Exactly.  Doe himself has done jack sh*t.

Totally agree. When he came back after some recovery time, he was attacked for daring to not use his name as his username, and for having the "Honourable Guest" title. He was pretty much driven away from the board.

Mike's a good guy. Sad part is, though, his opinion on certain things was colored by things I shared to him that Andrew told me, not realizing how much of a charlatan Andrew was (and is).

I'm sure if he really takes a look at these threads, as well as the pm's, he'll eventually see the bigger picture of things.
