Mike will be getting some kind of award at this event tonight too.

The National Artistic Achievement Award. Can't say I can find much info on it. It's had 4 prior recipients, including Stevie Wonder.

Yes, that's what it was, thanks for the clarification. I hope someone explained to Mike that The Beach Boys are getting the award, as in including the Wilsons and Jardine et al, and it's not just going to Mike & Bruce. If he delivers an acceptance speech when Stamos gives him the award, I hope he sees fit to name his original bandmates which he doesn't seem to do as often these days in his promotional press junket interviews.

If he does, it'll probably be to remind everybody that Brian is his cousin (which he only does when discussing Brian's many accomplishments)

I would not be surprised if that's exactly what happens! It's been Mike's M.O. in recent interviews to either go that route, or not mention the name "Brian" at all. As happened on an 8-minute long interview recently done on UK television.

Billy with the win in round 1! I don't know what this interviewer's credentials are or who he represents, but here are Mike and Bruce yapping away earlier today in DC...

https://youtu.be/4bDORIR2YzA?t=29s

Now were the original 80's July 4th shows in DC Mike's idea? He seems to suggest that in this interview. Legit question...is the credit for those shows really Mike's? Hmm.



For the longest time, I didn't know there was a radio guy named "Cousin Brucie" and  when Mike referred to him, I thought he was talking about Bruce Johnston LOL  I was like "holy sh*t this guy has a serious problem" LOL

Brian Wilson’s genius is “fake” news... Roll Eyes

Apparently - given the time Mike spent on it in this interview - discussing "I Write The Songs" is weighted heavier than mentioning Carl, Dennis, or the Beach Boys (pre-license) at all. Only a mention of "my cousin Brian" regarding songs he wrote with Mike.

Oh, and suggesting the original run of DC 4th of July concerts was Mike's idea.

It shouldn't, but this stuff gets me fired up.

Mike: It isn't about you.

Here is the stream on YouTube - Mike's set just ended around 9:10 EST, I Get Around, Kokomo (with Buffett) shortened that went right into Fun Fun Fun.

You should be able to rewind the stream to catch it.

Mike did accept the award "on behalf of Brian, Carl, and Dennis Wilson, Alan Jardine, David Marks, and Bruce and I".

Cool - As it should be.

I've been fooled before, but it sounded live to me. Not saying there wasn't anything extra--certainly could have been. Much improved compared to years past with the pre-recorded vocals/tracks.

The second year in a row I am grateful Mike fired Brian, Al and David, and gave a new meaning to ‘Independence’ Day.

I' ve been  a die hard fan for decades and decades (as some of you may remember). But in recent years have been sidelined by a growing interest in the blues, pop and swing my friends and co-musicians enjoy playing.   But I've drifted back in recent weeks to the lovely melodies and lore of the Boys.   Gotta say, I am amazed by the ongoing strength and musicianship of Mike and the touring band.   Couldn't believe how well they came across in the DC performance today.  Mike, Bruce, Cowsill, Scotty, , Jeff, and the rest are still going strong it seems.  Hell, even Stamos.   Been 3 years or more since I last saw them.   5 years since I last saw BW.  May see them again in California this fall.   These guys still bring me a bit of happiness..  amazing after all these years.

Pretty sure it's lipsynced or at least pitch corrected a bit, but it's much better than last year. I feel like scott totten's opening riff for "fun, fun, fun" had a tiny slightly muted string mistake in it, so that leads me to believe that it wasn't live for the broadcast, it was at least just a recent live performance's audio.

You can definitely tell that there's something going on with mike's vocal, but I'm not sure what it is anymore. If you listen to the first line of "fun, fun, fun" you can hear two mike love vocals simultaneously on the first word "well" before it cuts out like it was a mistake.

It really doesn't matter in a situation like that, though. Mike's vocal has been live and fairly strong the two times I've seen him in concert.

Saw Mike and Bruce a couple days ago, and while there were tributes to Carl and Dennis with GOK and DYWD (they used Dennis' lead vocal), I was surprised that there was absolutely no mention of Brian.

Never mind my original post... I was looking at the wrong video. Performance wasn’t bad and mike sounded better but the mix was too “wet” and Stamos continues to annoy me

Edit

Referring to the clip of them doing I Get Around

I was pleasantly surprised.  The vocal sound was pretty strong...the best of all of the 'acts' I thought.  I wondered what they did to enhance Mike's power and tone...  It worked.

Quibbles?  Why wouldn't they put the camera on Jeff when he was singing key parts of Kokomo?  Looked stupid...amateurish.  Obviously a poor production idea.  Why send John Cowsill packing in order to put 'who's-his-arse' on the drums?  Just let him play the guitar...or some bongos.  Jimmy isn't good at singing harmonies.  As I have said for years...'speechifying' ain't Mike's strong suit.  It never has been.  Stumbling through his wee accepting of the award 'blurt' was pretty iffy...and he forgot to include Blondie and Ricky.

All in all though?  W A Y  better than last year's debacle.  Hey!!!  I gotta tell the truth. Wink
