I would prefer that Mike not mention Brian's issues, past and current, when asked about their relationship, but there's probably more truth to what he says than most would care to admit.  I also cannot blame him if he's extremely irritated that he has to deal with someone who has no background in the music business, if he wants to work with or deal with Brian Wilson.     

Exactly

Brian and Melinda have been married for more than 20 years, so I'd say Melinda has more than 20 years of experience in the music business at this point.

Would there be any difference? Angry

I hate to say it, but I frankly think Mike is holding back. His comments are of a passive aggressive nature, where he never actually *specifically* states how much he hates Melinda in the manner that I think he does.  I think if given truth serum, or behind closed doors, he would talk about her in a disgusting way that would make Donald Trump proud.  Sometimes I wonder if he hates her more than he hates Landy.

For the record, I very much hope it never gets that publicly ugly, but you can just sense the simmering ugliness that in and of itself (even when "sugarcoated" for public interviews) is pretty blatantly obvious, and just very sad, especially at the age that these guys are. Very, very sad. Yet Brian takes the high road.

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

And I'm sure there are also people at the same time who think that perhaps Mike's wife Jacqueline should butt out of Mike's career, hiring and firing cheerleaders (!?) for the group, and supposedly honestly being one of the main players behind the scenes during the C50 tour (along with Melinda). So I guess, its okay if this woman runs things for Mike, but if it's THAT Melinda lady, well then to them she's just some nobody who has no background in music.

Id love to have someone ask him point blank "why do you constantly talk sh*t about brian? Also i know you hate that people think of you as being kind of an asshole. Have you ever thought about being more gracious about him in interviews that it might make people hate you less?"

Of course he'd probably just say he cant help brian did drugs, hes just being honest, Etc

I have no problem with Mike talking about Manson....it is a rather well-know part of their history.  Maybe they should release Never Learn Not to Love as a new single.  Or it could serve as a slogan for the NeverMiker's on this board...never learn not to Love, heh!

Would Mike still talk about Manson all the time if BRI made a rule that for each Manson mention, Mike must perform Never Learn Not to Love in concert? Would the lure of more attention be worth him playing a song that he'd surely feel awkward as f*** performing?

I hesitate to start a new thread for this because Mike threads tend to be a mess. But in case anyone is interested:

Hats off to all of you for actually reading the thing.  I don't bother at this point because it's always so repetitive and annoying, and I assume that some of you will let us know if he says anything new.

I saw Brian last night.  He was in really good spirits and sang well. He's 74 and his trajectory looked fine to me.  He's clearly doing what he wants.  And Mike last saw him, um???

As far as Mike's attitude toward Melinda, it rather fits with his refusal to admit how well Brian has been loved and supported for a few decades - but then that wouldn't really suit Mike's endless narrative, would it?  "Fake news," indeed.  "Sad..."
