COMMENT:  Been watching the coverage from KTLA in Los Angeles (http://ktla.com/on-air/live-streaming) and according to the reports, the fires are now close to the neighborhoods where Brian, Carl and Michael use to live and have homes. Dennis' rented log cabin also in the general area. These are all their old, previously owned houses of decades ago, but still can't help but think of the memories that may (or could) be lost. ~swd

Thanks Stephen, truly a heartbreaking time for so many people and families there. That picture is a thing of nightmares.

Just awful. My coworker's husband knows someone who lost their home in this fire.

Horrific. Astonishingly, it doesn't seem to be news here in NL...

Thinking of the folks in and around LA.

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

The Thomas fire has now become the third largest in CA's records, in terms of acreage. It continues pushing westward, and now pretty much all of Montecito, where Bruce Johnston lives, is under mandatory evacuation. Wishing good luck for Bruce....

I hope these fires will be able to get extinguished soon. Sounds horrific.


I know this doesn't really matter, but for a connection to the BBs and/or LA's music history, Jan Berry's old home was victim of the fires:

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.

It's major news in NL these days. rab2591 used the word "nightmare"----too true.

It's already taken the life of one firefighter. Let's hope it dies down soon. Those poor folks...
