The person who set this up probably has ZERO idea of the history of this band. The promotional person cut and pasted more pictures of Jesse Katsopolis and the Tanner family than actual friggin Beach Boys. That says it all right there.

Weíre in an era where the main draw for a current The Beach Boys concert is having John Stamos attend - and part of the promotional coverage of that ďfeatureĒ is a Full House trivia question contest. Oh, also, Ostrich concert. Seriously, at this point the parking lot gig at the Lucky Strike Lanes and Lounge from years back is looking awfully good.

Hell yeah youíre allowed to say that. I think most of the fans whoíve met him have great things to say about the experience. To me, no matter how many drinks the man buys people or how many items he signs, doesnít take away the fact that he blatantly lied about Brian on a personal level in the 2005 lawsuit, and to that I think heís a pretty scummy individual (among other reasons). No need for me to meet the man to understand what a dick move that was. But if you like him, no harm in that either. Weíve all got our reasons for our likes and dislikes that make sense to us.

He's more like an old acquaintance that constantly disappoints you with his decisions but you still let him off the hook more than you should because you both go way back or something. LOL

This is pretty spot on. The past few months I started giving him the benefit of the doubt because he seemed like a different person in his interviews in the last year. Then that weird Mojo interview happened and it shattered my hopes haha.

I really want to like the guy. I canít even imagine the roller coaster it has been for everyone in the band (aside from all we have read and heard, the emotional aspect is something I donít think we fans understand at all), so I think all the people in this band should be given some slack here and there. When Mike opened up about his childhood it really helped me understand him more and I gave him some slack in many areas. But Mike just keeps on with tactless nonsense about the Wilsons and itís really unnecessary. Contrary to what some windbags out there think, people donít go looking furiously for a villain in Mike Love - you donít at all have to stretch reality to understand why some think Mike is a dick: when you lie about your family members for potential monetary gain, expect people to look down on you. When you make constant tactless comments about your family members, expect people to look down on you.

Imagine a world where we all treated our relatives the way Mike Love treats Brian and the legacy of Carl and Dennis. Imagine if you made some bad decisions in your past and your famous cousin mentioned these decisions every time a mic was stuck in his face. Imagine if a family member sued you and lied about the accomplishments you made in life just to make a few bucks. That would be a horrible world to live in.

Also, SamMcK, I went off on a tangent and the last two paragraphs are not directed at you Grin

I used to [usually] feel that way...but that stupid old bastard kept making a fool out of me...and especially out of himself...so finally, about 2 - 2 1/2 years ago, it reached the breaking point where I'd just simply had enough period.  NO MORE ... ... ... EVER.  He's a semi-talent, he's vindictive, he strikes me as completely untrustworthy and dishonest, he's a far over-inflated egoist and he's a prick.  He can trundle on without me, my support or my money.  Eventually he'll sink into 'it'...virtually alone.  And he'll have paid for THAT specific one-way ticket all by himself.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And Rob...Good for you.  No problem there.  I respect you and your opinion.  From my point of view though...and I've watched him do it many a time...The old 'dick' can certainly make you feel like he appreciates your fandom, interest and your money.  The reasons why he does it..." for my nourishment and revenge"...though, give me pause to totally reconsider lovin' 'love'.  HIGHLY doubtful he really has any kind of a grasp on ANYTHING to do with that 'concept'.

In all seriousness, Id love if a contest were held like this if they played near me.   If getting a front row seat when the answer is pretty much in the "puzzle," is that easy, I'm in..

I hope they have a giveaway for the ostrich festival too. Like a "Where's Waldo" puzzle where you have to find Mike and Bruce in a herd of 500 ostriches.

Whatís up with this band and livestock? Didnít they play a revolving stage at a rodeo a few years ago? Now theyíve got an ostrich gig. Really wonderful the band name is literally being dragged through the mud.

I'm certainly not trying to start anything, however it seems that Bruce may not have been at Universal Studios with the band tonight? I just saw a photo of *almost* the whole stage and unless he is now far stage right (which could be possible) neither he nor his keyboard were in the photo.

I'm very interested as to what the current line up is...

I was watching videos of the Universal Mardi Gras gig from Feb 10, and yes, Bruce was there. But so was Randell Kirsch, not Ike, and Christian Love, as well as John Stamos. Nothing will compare to C50, but having Mike Love, Bruce Johnston, Scott Totten, Christian Love, John Cowsill, Randell Kirsch, Jeff Foskett, Tim Bonhamme, and Randy Leago is one hell of a band. What happened to Ike though I'm curious?

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.

"They" may be one hell of a band to some but the bottom line still rings true-They are not the Beach Boys, not even with Staymohs.

Sounds like a pretty good lineup, though it would be a shame if Ike is out.

Not just that...but what happened to the vocals? Especially Mike. I mean, I hear people posting how strong Mike's vocals are, and I'm like ten minutes in and he's been out of tune more than in tune, and he's hoarse on some notes to where he's almost growling.

I guess I just don't get the appeal of paying good money to see that show. It seems like many fans are more jazzed that Stamos is there and the band itself is an afterthought or something. WTF?

I'm typing this, no lie, while listening and I just heard McGrath's "DO IT! DO IT!" samples coming in like a spike through my head. Now Mike is trying to sing the bridge. Off key.

Nope, I don't get it.

Surfin USA. Another sub-par lead vocal. I think I'm done for now. Small doses.

I also saw someone mention Mike's video billboard montage is using photos or clips that have watermarks and copyrights on them. True? It is kind of disconcerting to be hit square across the face with the sounds and images of Brian, Al, and Dennis right out of the gate on Mike's montage, considering...well, all things considered. And clips of Brian leading sessions on the talkback too. What?

He's so damn good at destroying things, isn't he.

Here's a small list:

His voice
The Beach Boys legacy
Smile
A good deal of Brian's confidence
TWGMTR-Daybreak Over The Ocean
C-50
SIP
Unleash The luHv
Tried to trash Pet Sounds
Bringing up the Wilson's drug use
numerous failed marriages
Brian's speech at the RRHOF

Yeah, he's quite a guy, huh?

Looks like Ike left the group his Facebook page says left job with The Beach Boys. Guess Randell and Christian is a permanent change for now. Christian sang God and Vibes so guess thatís a permanent change, I do like Christianís voice there.

No mention of Dennis. Pictures of Stamos' wedding in the background. I really hate to join in on the bashing, but man, this is painful stuff. What a shitty time to be a "Beach Boys" fan.
