I do regret not getting a signed C50 program. They were not available at my Melbourne show and there was also talk, since pretty much confirmed, Brianís signature was not his. For that reason I did not go down the eBay route.

C50 programs are still available on The Beach Boys website.   I didn't get one at the show I attended, because money was really tight at the time.   I really wanted to get the signed TWGMTR CD, but I'm kinda glad I didn't since the Brian Wilson signature was likely not his.

Sometimes people go and trash the golden rule...

(I love Darian's version of the song)

My biggest regret is never having seen them live with Carl.  Other than that, my journey in the world of the Beach Boys has been rewarding and wonderful.

Yeah, if I could figure out how to time travel this would be one of my first stops.

I regret not seeing Brian Wilson's Pet Sounds tour last year, when it rolled through my area. Money was tight, and I hoped he would come back this year. My fingers are still crossed that more shows will be continue to be added.

New shows continue to be added, and the Pet Sounds Tour looks like the Energizer Bunny right now.

True. I'm hoping Cleveland/Akron makes the cut.

I've seen the boys perform many times over the years, though not before 1970

but a particular regret I can name is not buying the Friends LP when it was a contemporary release

I bought Pet Sounds, Stack/Tracks, Wild Honey albums all at their original releases but Friends did not attract me back then, and worse yet it came and went in the record store bins in the blink of an eye.  To add insult to injury the very last sighting of it I recall was in the 88 cents bins as capitol was clearing out all stock, and I still didn't give in.  A couple years later I acquired a british pressing of Friends (which small comfort was a high quality pressing of it compared to many US records I bought at the time) because they hadn't deleted it (yet) over there.

But bottom line I now would rather I could say I had enough beach boys sense even then to've bought the US Friends release first pass

I bet one of Brian's biggest regrets was writing the song  'Do You Have Any Regrets?'

I regret not doing more to bug my parents into taking me to a Beach Boys show when I was a little kid in the 1970s.  The BBs played a major venue 20 minutes from my home for two nights every summer.  I could have seen them in their touring prime, and with Denny.  But my parents were not concert-goers (even though they both liked the BBs) and I was a shy little kid who didn't speak up much.  I'm kind of disappointed that they never thought to take me to a BB show, because they knew I loved the music even as a child.  As soon as I was old enough to get to show myself (that is, have a boyfriend who could drive), I went to see the BBs - but by then, it was in the 80s and they were just phoning it in.  At least I did get to see Carl in concert twice.

Aint that the truth. I wish he would re-record it with Darianís arrangement.
