Why do the rest of the Tanner family never appear on stage with The Beach Boys?   After all, there were once introduced as your new ones before a spirited rendition of Barbara Ann. 

We see Uncle Jesse all the time, but no love for Danny, Joey, DJ, or Stephanie (Stephanie might actually sell some tickets these days, nudge nudge wink wink say no more say no more).

To be fair, several interviewers have brought up the topic of Mike's reputation in interviews with him.

Yes, sometimes it's done in a rather softball fashion, seemingly to give Mike an easy opportunity to deflect those criticisms. I sense some articles/interviews are pitched to Mike as if "You're wrongly seen as the villain, so I want to give you an opportunity to tell us your side", which usually ends up with Mike just kind of explaining why he thinks *other* people are at fault for everything. His most common response to many questions including this one often seems to be that he's not the villains because the Wilsons did drugs?

But that Rolling Stone piece from a year or two ago finally saw an interviewer who challenged Mike on some things (such as asking why he seems so angry and litigious for someone who preaches the calming virtues of TM), and I think that interviewer was trying to, rather than simply give Mike a chance to contradict his reputation as a villain, to actually try to explain to Mike why he is seen this way. To both the interviewer's and Mike's credit, we got at least a *tiny bit* of an admission that Mike realizes he can come across like a jerk. It's still often couched in a "I'm sorry if someone else doesn't get my unique sense of humor" rather than actually just admitting he can be a dick, but at least it's something.

Are there any plans to develop the husband/wife pantomime detailed in the RS article, where you play-acted portrayals of the Wilsons, into a limited-run experimental theater type of project?

Hey clownface, are you still into wife beating?

How come you never got a rug?

Why do you put paint on your face?

Do you still pour oil all over your body?

How do you make your singing voice sound like you're holding your nose?

Do you also bleat when you sneeze?

How often do you get botox injections?

During the 50th anniversary shows, did it piss you off that Brian got a much larger round of cheers than you did?

Has anyone thrown lettuce or tomatoes at you while on stage.

Do you still think you're better looking than Dennis?

Would you sue someone who threw a pie in your face? Two pies?

Have you gotten a flu shot?

Does Br00th brown nose the living hell out of you?

Do you listen to Unleash the Love every chance you get?

I'm not sure if this counts, but here's the band lip syncing Little St Nick at the National Christmas Tree Lighting

http://www.hallmarkchannel.com/national-christmas-tree-lighting/videos/the-beach-boys-perform-little-saint-nick-the-national-christmas-tree-lighting


On a side note, Mike has said that he invited Brian and Al to perform with The Beach Boys for this event. If they said yes (assuming Mike actually asked), would they have done a horrible autotuned lip sync? Would they have mimed to the same track that Mike was going to and ended up using?

I'm sure that's one of many reasons Brian and Al would turn down such an offer. It would have been beyond insane to waste another reunion on a low-profile, lip-sync (to an over-autotuned Mike solo recording) job, at a b-list event on a b-list cable network, at an event presided over by an unhappy, unpopular politician.

As I said in another post, imagine the Beatles reuniting in 1976 and choosing to lip-sync to a Lennon solo re-recording of "I Want to Hold Your Hand", and doing it on a local TV station.

I sense that, in general, Brian and Al may well not appreciate being "invited" for a one-shot deal to play in their OWN band.

I did not want to start a discussion of this on the pro shot concert thread however if the invite did happen Mike has now got the perfect answer for many interviews this year...

Q: Have you been in contact with Brian Wilson?
A: Well I tried to get him and Al to join us at Christmas for a show, but they turned us down.

Well played Mike. Bravo!  (Slow hand clap)

I think a better question would be, "If Carl were still alive, would you still be behaving in the manner that you have in recent years, insulting Brian and Al in interviews, insulting Brian's wife in interviews, attacking Brian for using auto tune in his recordings, etc?" . I'm really starting to wonder if Mike feels he can be more "free" to say whatever he wants to, now that the blue that held the group together is gone now.

I believe it was an eyewatering 14 inches in the Todd Gold book.

A more modest 10 inches in the more recent autobiography.

In Mike's book, the turd was not mentioned, though some believe Mike's book was the turd in some strange trans-substantiation way.
