Ya...maybe Jay.  And maybe Mike blew up the 50th anniversary and continued in his quest to bad-mouth the Wilsons...and Al too...interview after interview after interview just to help sell a few more books.  Maybe as the completion of said book approached and an actual publishing date drew more into frame he stepped up the campaign just to put a few more greenbacks in his pocket.

Maybe indeed.

What in the flying f*** does that have to do with the topic being discussed? Take your predictable hate speech somewhere else.

Why does Mike always have to have an ulterior motive?  Roll Eyes Maybe losing a cousin, brother, and friend was very sobering and gave the entire band a wake up call?
Or maybe he hurt his back or something. I never hear about Mike having health problems, but i'm sure he's had a few. He's got a great work ethic, though.

Some of us who have been pushed over the edge by his latest outrage i.e. the ill-timed, solo(!) McGrath-blemished DIA, right on the heels of the glorious Sunshine Tomorrow, are reacting to this equally ill-timed thread with a NIMBY attitude. Yes, we could just refrain from comment and let you ML deniers pat him and each other on the back ad nauseum, or we can express a dissenting opinion. That is what some of us are choosing to do, here and now. If you don't like it, lump it.

I thought this thread was supposed to highlight positive aspects of Mr. Love and his contributions to The Beach Boys, not to start a new Love bashing thread.  We have multiple threads for that - see the "does Mike Love realize he's despised by millions" thread above.  Because this thread focusses on positive things about Mike doesn't mean anyone has forgotten or forgiven his bad behavior or past transgressions or personality faults.  It's more like, we all know Mike is a **** but for something different what good things can we say about him?  C'mon, it's a fun fun fun intellectual exercise - rack your brains and come up with something.  Something nice, if you dare.

Man, I was listening to Surfin' the other night.

How did Mike love think of the "Bom bom dit di dit dip" bass part? So creative. Really carries the tune, actually.

Get ahold of yourself if you can. Preferrably in a private area where no one else has to watch you! Honestly, Sunshine Tomorrow is not going to sell millions of copies and win the group countless new fans; I think it was on the Billboard album chart for 1 week. It's manna from heaven for us diehards, that's all. And Mike's DIA single has already been forgotten everywhere but here.
Seriously. There are other things in this mixed up muddled up world in which we live in to be worried about.

I have very firm hold of "myself", thank you. I just had an overdue reaction to some of the blinder-wearing ML defenders here over the years whom I have never addressed. Also, just because most of the world may be oblivious to DIA, it was another nail in the cumulative coffin of the BB brand's respectablilty as has been said before, and just because most people are not passionate or perceptive enough to care (arguable) doesn't affect me, my opinions or my desire to express them, one way or another. It's fine to have positive opinions about his contributions, which I share, but this thread is ill-timed and there is going to be pushback from some.

Granted the song if pretty primitive now, but for a band's first try, not too shabby.

Any opinions posted by me regarding the music of The Beach Boys, and their members, is in no way a show of disrespect towards any member of The Beach Boys, past or present.

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

Pick up some best of doo-wop collections, then work back into the vocal group R&B records Alan Freed was spinning in the early and mid 50's on his radio show, then go back even further to The Mills Brothers and other vocal groups from the 40's, and also listen to Arthur Smith's 1945 record "Guitar Boogie" - There is a rich legacy of that kind of bass line used to drive many records before Surfin' and Jan Berry, and you'll find a lot of classic tunes in the process! The Surfin vocal bass line is just one in a long string of those bass patterns.
