I picked up the BB Coloring Book on a lark, being an artist and having a little extra gift money left over. It turns out to be a bit of a disappointment.

The images are based on photos and some artwork (probably found online), run through Photoshop effects filters to remove the color and leave just enough graytones to color through.

That wouldn't have been so much of an issue with me in itself, but it's clear the author/editor doesn't have a clue as to who is a Beach Boy and who is not. Three of the images are of BB cover/tribute bands. Another is of Don Was and yet another is of Paul Simon. There are a few images of the BBs themselves, including the cover of Jon Stebbins' FAQ book, one of Dennis, one of Brian and Carl, but the majority of the images are of Brian in later years, including on with Landy and one with Melinda.

Weird -- not really, just lazy!  Thud

On the other hand, I'm going to enjoy getting creative with some of these images.

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
