Again, the "Pet Sounds anniversary" thing that happened in Mike & Bruce camp, it wasn't a tour based on it or named after it, right? so it's only natural you couldn't expect more from it, but here? "Wild Honey Tour"? i mean that's black on white!

If they do How She Boogalooed it, that would be a treat, a special and underrated song, i believe the first original band composition without Brian, and one Noel Gallagher even loves (and he ain't a Beach Boys fan by any means)
Interesting - got the link to back it?

Just forgive his very sarcastic english humour when you read it  Grin

He's a biased Beatles fan heh but i thought it was interesting he mentioned that one specifically out of the hits.

Love how they go from GV, WIBN and SOS to How She Boogalooed It.

The interviewer then offers up the grand piece that is Kokomo. I can easily mention 50 songs which beat HSBI and Kokomo, right off the bat.

The best YSGTM singer ever in the BB  blowing the rest out of the water doesn't sing it currently, but he's short, blonde, and often wears a white suit.


Doesn't come close to Brian's original lead on the studio version imo

a diseased bunch of mo'fos if there ever was one… their beauty is so awesome that listening to them at their best is like being in some vast dream cathedral decorated with a thousand gleaming American pop culture icons.

- Lester Bangs on The Beach Boys


PRO SHOT BEACH BOYS CONCERTS - LIST


To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

Isn't it interesting? SOS is def something Noel would pick on, the more bluesish (kinda???) vibe of it, 70s touch, i guess he must have heard of it from the movie The Departed by Martin Scorsese, perhaps?? oh hell, maybe he just really gave Holland a shot, i do know the Beach Boys were still big there and he's from that generation, i tink that single did well over there?

I'd like to know how a supposed Beatle fan  does NOT own anymore Wings albums than just "Band on The Run"...but knows "How She Boogaloed It"Huh

Hahahaha, right? and i know Noel by heart, that -really- took me by surprise, the only reason behind it is that Paul Weller must have mentioned to him, i can only imagne they were having a tea around Pet Sounds, and Paul understanding Noel wasn't getting into it threw that soul vibe to show him what they got, especially since that one has an organ solo kinda like The Doors, you know??? so yeah i can see how that's more into Noel's stuff

Again like i said, Paul Weller is a huge Beach Boys fanatic and they're best friends.

Doesn't come close to Brian's original lead on the studio version imo

Yeah, actually one of my fav early Brian performance, very energetic! come to think of it, has Carl ever sang it? can't recall at the top of my head (don't be so hard on me, they have such a long touring career and switched singers and leaders for different versions...) he would nail it!

As long as he does I'd Love Just Once To See You with him singing alone, and him & Bruce solo do You're Welcome. 
Aren't You Glad is one of my favourite BB songs & he sung the verses well.  Apart from that I've got no interest  in seeing him him attempt to vocally mount any other song off this beloved album like some aged prize bull...
I'll go if Bruce rocks his bowler hat & Sgt Peppers moustache combo off the back cover. Is it easy to get a Nike bowler hat or one with 'Trump 2016' on it?

Another possibility is that he'd encountered one of those odd compilations that included it for some reason?  Like, er, Sunshine Dream (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sunshine_Dream) or something.  (Actually a really solid compilation, that, HSBI notwithstanding.)

Cheers Ziggy. I can't help feeling this is an appeasement to the Brianistas and/or the specialist album tour.
That said, if Mike 'n Bruce do a Beach Boys Love You tour, I'll buy front row tickets.

That's crazy! that seems like an very unlikely scenario tho, even more so if it's an US release! Paul Weller seems a safe case for me, here for example in a must-have albums list he brings up Friends:

Another great talented dude with amazing taste!

Yeah, Cowsill could sing those Carl leads pretty well. And let's hope Brian tours Smiley Smile when the PS tour is over. I want to see them put an empty swimming pool in front of the stage so Brian and his bandmates can get down there and replicate the vocals from "Wind Chimes".

There was actually a kind of funny and awkward episode on this board several years back when someone posted a video of Cowsill singing "Heroes and Villains", and somebody else noted it was pretty painful, and then Cowsill came on and posted and was actually pretty self-deprecating and honest about being open to the criticism.

Normally I'd say he probably couldn't necessarily handle some of those Carl leads (I don't think anybody in Mike's band could do Carl's take on "I Was Made to Love Her" in the same key), but at the risk of being kind of pessimistic about the whole thing, if Mike does an album in concert where the backing guys are doing the majority of the leads, I kinda wouldn't care who's singing them. If I weren't turned off by Mike's attitude and demeanor to the point of not wanting to go to his shows anyway, I'd point out that if I were going to his shows, I'd rather hear Mike sing "All I Wanna Do" or "Big Sur" than hear Totten or Foskett singing "Here Comes the Night" or something.

Brian introduced The Little Girl I Once Knew by saying that the first two notes sounded "Chinese," but not to worry because the rest of the song was "American."

Ha! Few posters said they couldn't stand his vocals. Cowsill agreed saying he sang like Kermit the Frog! Then me or smb. else added he's right, terrible voice. He was completely OK with it! Now *that's* "professional musician". He gained respect after that. 3D

Now if we could only get him to admit that while John Stamos is undoubtedly a cool guy to hang out with, he's an amateur musician and a blight on the band's legacy and the quality of live shows, then I'd have even more respect!

But I agree with what someone mentioned back when Foskett jumped ship to Mike's band; Brian should have simultaneously been trying to lure Totten and Cowsill into *his* band!

As corny as it is to have a Full(er) House actor in the lineup, I don't really mind Stamos too much. Mainly because I suppose I haven't heard him tarnish a live recording by standing out in an amateur way - although I haven't really listened to much live stuff during the Stamos era.

On one hand, because he's a BBs superfan, it's kinda cool that someone like that gets a chance to be a part of his favorite band. And since he seems like a genuinely nice dude, I can't really hate on his presence *too* much.  But yeah, ultimately if one thinks about it a little deeper, it becomes somewhat of a ridiculous joke, because it's no big secret that he's likely primarily there with a specific intent to attract a certain demographic of the audience.

What would be amazing is if Brian added Dave Coulier, Bob Saget, Mary Kate Olsen (and her much taller and older husband), and Andrea Barber to a string of BW shows, just to outdo the Stamos factor on the M&B side.
