He's missed some recent shows, including the whole European tour. Speculation is it's health-related. Hopefully temporary.

Far as I can tell, he didn't even open his mouth. He just kinda moseyed around the stage and played guitar.

After reading about Jeff in the BB Tour thread and doing a quick search, I discovered this story from August.

https://www.vvdailypress.com/news/20190813/briellas-difficult-journey

Jeff, if you do read this, Iím sure the whole Beach Boys community is behind you and Briella at this difficult time. Stay strong.

That's a different Jeff Foskett. His age is listed as 44; our Jeff is older. Still, praying for those folks in the story is a good thing.

Jeff shouldn't waste time reading BBs forums - should instead improve the abysmal falsetto.

While I prefer Ike, Matt, and Randell Kirsch's falsettos, I would NEVER call Jeff's falsetto anything less than spectacular (80's-2014), since around 2014, Jeff's fasletto has weakened noticibaly, but his mid-range voice was as strong as ever. I Saw him at Ravinia this summer with The Beach Boys, and his rhythm guitar added so much. Jeff is a great musician who can make any band sound better. His falsetto has weakened recently, but you have to take his health issues and age into consideration.

Jeffs falsetto may have weakened but for anyone who questions his voice in general pick up some of his solo CDs they're really excellent. I actually have them all the music is quite enjoyable and his vocals are strong. Certainly recorded a long time ago but they're still great and I listen to often.

It looks like based on videos and such that as has been mentioned Jeff has been supporting the Todd Rundgren/Micky Dolenz/Christopher Cross/etc. White Album tour shows or at least appeared as a guest the other night. According to Setlistfm. Al also joined them a few nights back but I find that hard to believe....

Foskett was not ousted, 100% fact, he has sat in with the band a few times since 2019.  Jeff is approaching his mid 60's, maybe he wanted a break, who knows.

I agree Jeff was definitely not "ousted"

He made a guest appearance at the Ravinia shows, and at the Sunday show, which I attended, The BB's show ended with Mike saying "Jeffrey Foskett Ladies & Gentlemen!" with Jeff taking a bow. Mike obviously has admiration for Jeff, and has been working with him since the 80's. Jeff's apparent departure from being a regular member of The Beach Boys is almost certainly health related.  A few years ago It was looking like, when the time comes, he might take the reins from Mike, but now who knows.
