Wow. A fascinating article with a special glimpse into Brian's teen time. Montez was a real surfer at Hawthorne High who became a professional musician, jammed with the Boys in their home, and his sister is Olivia Harrison! Love the conversation between to two old classmates. Thank you.

Very cool. Thanks, Amy. "I know this chick!" LOL

That was pretty cool. Like the idea of Brian talking with a high school buddy after some years. We often forget that our heroes are people first. The story of imitating the teacher was hilarious

And production aside, Id so much rather hear a 14 year old David Marks shred some guitar on Chug-a-lug than hear a 51 year old Mike Love sing about bangin some chick in a swimming pool.-rab2591

Read it again-- Olivia was the sister of Ron Arias, who also went to Hawthorne High and knew Chris Montez.

Cool news! 3D Looks like Brian & Chris met around 2011 (plus minus few years), going by Mr. Kearns' timeline in the site & Brian's reply about when he'd last seen Chris. Not sure why it's been kept till this year, the doc isn't finished. Will check the video when it ends rolling, the Internet's slow.

Xylo' is different, it's wooden "deaf" sound. He mixed it up with marimba. Listen to Modern Jazz Quartet's "Baden Baden" & Rolling Stones songs with marimba - it's the same instrument as the tune in question.

What a lovely video. The ending, as well: Brian makes his patented swift exit, leaving Christ sitting and wondering. Lunchtime, bro!  Grin

RR, I reckon it's a vibraphone with less vibrato than usual. But don't quote me on that. Grin
