Now that's more like it! "Dancing Queen" is a great record but a bit suspect as a monarch's choice...

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.

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.

"We dedicate the concert to you... Queen."

That concert reawakened my interest in Brian and the Boys after a couple of decades, combined with a birthday present of his "autobiography" (I still think it's a great read). My devotion was sealed shortly after when I heard "All I Wanna Do". 

Brian's appearance shocked me (I think the audience was initially shocked too by his manner) but the next day one paper noted, "The best of British was an American". Ha!

Maybe  the Boys will get a mention on the upcoming season of The Crown (great show by the way). I think it's going to cover Queen Elizabeth in the  60s.
