In 1999, most of Mike's ire seemed to be channeled (though technically from/through BRI) to Al Jardine and his band.

Even as Brian started touring in 1999, I doubt he anticipated Brian then taking up touring as a full time or semi-full time thing.

In 1999, it was Al and the reviews of his shows that, in my opinion, were freaking Mike out the most. To be clear, I don't think Mike actually thought anybody was confusing "Beach Boys Family & Friends" with Daryl Dragon and three lead female singers as "THE Beach Boys." But Al was ramping up a fair amount of tour dates in 1999 (or at least trying to), and the show was getting excellent reviews. I don't think many could argue that Al's show blew away Mike's in 1999.

Once Al was off the touring market by the end of 1999 (note that his only particularly active year of touring was 1999), then I think Brian remained the main and only "competition", and I think it was more a critical competition than a financial one.

It's interesting too in weeding through that 2005 lawsuit, Mike probably did have a *very brief* "sh**ing his pants" moment around the end of 2006 into 2007. Note that one of the accusations in Mike's lawsuit is that Brian threatened to move to pull Mike's license and go out on tour *with Al* as "The Beach Boys." I doubt this was a serious threat, but I do think that's probably part of why Al at end of 2006 and into early 2007 popped up for some shows with Brian. A bit of a political warning/salvo. It amounted to little in the end, because I think Al wasn't doing it for money (with rampant reports/rumors that he literally did it for no pay) and was trying to reconnect and get back into the game, and I think the politics of BRI were still thawing between Al and Brian. That was a case of a bit "too soon." I think 2012 really truly got Brian and Al back together in the right way, which is why he's been on board since.

Maybe Mike will promote his Ostrich Festival gig on this show: 



Oh wait, that's right, that show was canceled and the host fired in disgrace.

But back to Brian's current tour schedule, I'm still thinking this will be a lighter year. Assuming he plans on keeping Al on board, Al's own club tour schedule seems to indicate Brian isn't going to be touring during that same time.

With any luck, Brian might be using this time to be recording a new album. That way, he can add a new song or two to the act to promote it and it could be a win - win

On a day when it's reported Mike has a show booked at an ostrich festival, that's really saying something.  LOL

Brian's facebook account posted this link:


Fun, Fun, Fun on Pet Sounds’ 50th Anniversary Tour

Brian Wilson, the visionary behind The Beach Boys, is rolling his "Pet Sounds" 50th Anniversary Tour forward into 2018 with its final performances, and along for every stop of the journey is longtime production manager/FOH engineer Clint Boire.

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.

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.

The May 15 SC show has been rescheduled to July 25, apparently due to the venue having a scheduling issue.
