I hope it was worth it for Ike to desert the BW band... Roll Eyes

"This is a song we did on Full House...".

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.
This is NOT the BBs....

The Beach Boys are Brian Wilson, Carl Wilson, Dennis Wilson, Al Jardine, and Mike Love....( Give or take David, Bruce, Blondie, and Ricky)......

Holy sh*t that was rough. Mike and Bruce both look like they've aged ten years since August. John Cowsill are Scott Totten are the only redeeming qualities I can find in this video.

Ya know, I have to pass on a comment I saw on Reddit last month. It was the top comment for a top post on the fourth most popular website in the world. The post was about someone jumping out of an airplane into their wedding, top comment was:

Dangerous move man. Remember that episode of Full House when Uncle Jesse did this and landed in a tomato truck? Then he went to jail and Danny had to bail him out. Wedding could’ve been a disaster but then he played the piano and sang “Forever” to Aunt Becky and everyone was like, Aww, and sort of just forgot about the dumb ass skydiving incident.

Okay, its a hilarious comment because it showcases the idiocy that Full House was. But right there is the biggest slap in the face to one of Dennis Wilson’s most touching songs. Full House/John Stamos took a really heartfelt song and used it in a sitcom episode where he skydives into a damn tomato truck. Okay, whatever, happened decades ago, right?

But now that SAME episode is being touted as the main draw for this song....AT A “BEACH BOYS” CONCERT. I can’t even let that sink in because its so remarkably stupid. Not to mention that Reddit comment (being upvoted by thousands and viewed by millions) above goes to show how much people remember that show and the song “Forever” being played after Uncle Jesse skydives into a tomoto truck. What a legacy this is becoming!

It's an inconsistent performance. Some things sound good, some not. Boring set list.  Mike's bass parts sounded great, but he struggled with some leads. Dance X 3 and Rhonda ( which he shouldn't be signing anyway)  Foskett really seemed to be struggling too. Hopefully early in the tour and they will even it out.  Sloop John B sounded particularly awful. It sounded like the entire band was trying to sing the lead at the same time.

EDIT The tag to GOK is absolutely dreadful.  I have no idea what sound Mike is making .

I'm a huge fan of the current touring group, but I will agree this particular performance sounded rough. I wish Randell would have sung Don't Worry Baby instead of Foskett. I like his take on that song better.

Am I the only one that is super stoked that Randell is back?? Also happy that Christian is back as well. Brian E was good, but I liked Randell's leads better. And hearing Christian back in the vocal blend is great! Didn't realize how much I missed his voice in the blend after he left.

I think the blend will probably improve. Ike was good but very bland. Christian is also my third favorite person to sing God Only Knows, behind Carl(of course) and Brian. I'd rather have a live vocal than Carl on video too. Mike needs to stop trying to sing along with the falsetto part at the end of GOK though. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZ4pb9iykV0

The opening montage is pretty cool. Does anyone know which concert  is at 1.33?  It looks like 1973 to me

I actually preferred Ike's vocals to Randell's in most cases. Honestly, neither of them are all that thrilling...and Christian Love is about the most boring individual I've ever seen grace a stage.

I must say, they sound dreadful! Bruce's cracking voice, Loverster, off key, and the other guys not sounding much better. Sad to say, Stamos may actually sound the best of this group. Maybe Christian wanted back in,  so Mikey cut Ike? Who knows, but Ike had the best voice of the whole crew. Sad times for sure.

P.S.

I find it hilarious, and sad, all the times Stamos switches inaudible guitars. This guy s wants to be a rock start.

It'll be interesting to see if both Kirsche and Christian Love are back permanently. I figure Kirsche probably is (unless he's a temporary replacement until they find a permanent one), as Eichenberger indeed updated his page on February 2nd to show that he is no longer in the band.

What seems a bit strange is that one of Mike's supposed issues with C50 (certainly with keeping such a band going long-term) was the size and cost of such a large band. Many pointed out Mike much preferred his lean, cheap seven-man lineup for his tour dates.

But he's now up to NINE full-time touring members (assuming Christian is back for the foreseeable future), and when Stamos is there it's TEN members.

It'll be interesting to see if Christian Love is back just to beef up the sound, or if someone else in the band is on their way out. It'll also be interesting to see if one of the other members will move over to bass, because I'm not sure the "Mike Model" of touring requires Foskett, Totten, *and* Christian Love all on guitar and vocals, along with Kirsche on bass and vocals.

Or, I suppose it's possible Christian Love was just popping in to guest (although, has he done that since 2014?).

Has anyone ever confirmed Stamos' guitar being inaudible? Because in that recent Mardi Gras show, in between songs he strummed his guitar which produced sound. Although, I always assumed he was inaudible.

Christian's voice really helps to fill out the middle third in my opinion.  I'm so glad he is back, just wish he had more vox to sing lead on.  Did anyone else hear the vocal stacking on Why Do Fools Fall In Love, the band has 2 legitimate and excellent falsetto singers and yet "Scotty T" and his thin falsetto take the lead on it.  Sounded awful!

In the past, it was Scott and Jeff doing a tandem lead. I think that before that, it was Scott and Randell doing a tandem lead (going by memory). I think that attempting this as a solo lead would be a daunting task for anybody, and I give Scott props for trying, and doing fairly well in my book. To be honest, even Brian Wilson's lead on the studio recording sounded iffy to me from first listen.

He talks about decency being at an all-time low, but he has he considered his own actions when appropriating the song by Dennis Wilson, without credit, and who was the very soul of the Beach Boys?
