Nooooooooooooooo. He was well before my time and though I saw him growing up in movies like 'Kelly's Heroes' I only just got into his whole career in the last 5-10 years (much thanks to YouTube). I'd love catching him on recent late night television and the audience, in this bullshit politically correct age, wouldn't know whether to laugh or gasp...if they gasped he'd turn that into a joke too. The man is a legend.

Thank god his comedy is available for all to see on the internet. Here is his performance from Reagan's second inauguration. Not for the faint of heart (it's really nothing too bad but people are so sensitive these days; you never know)...https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=u9XGGZ0kQ5w

And production aside, Id so much rather hear a 14 year old David Marks shred some guitar on Chug-a-lug than hear a 51 year old Mike Love sing about bangin some chick in a swimming pool.-rab2591

This is exactly how I feel about it. I mostly agree with the progressive vision of the Democratic Party, but I hope most level headed people would agree that the world would be a sad and tiresome place if we couldn't poke fun at each other.

I'm in the same boat as you only getting into his career about 5 years ago.  I sort of became obsessed with him like I did with The Beach Boys and watched pretty much every video on youtube  LOL.  Regarding recent late night appearances, I didn't know whether to shake my head or laugh that much more when the audience didn't know how to react.  That Reagan video is great, I wish he would have been invited to Trump's inaugural ball.  He made a tweet about not getting invited, but it seems to have been deleted.
