OMG, I totally missed the article about Briella. So sad. Sad

(BTW, this must be at least Jeff's third marriage. I remember reading an article where he explained his original 1990 departure from the Beach Boys and how it saved his marriage. Well...I met Jeff's wife Diana in 2003 shortly after they got married, but the article EmdeeH linked says his wife's name is Allison...)

I believe that EmdeeH said that the Briella article is a different Jeff Foskett.

For those that wanted to know what happened to JF y'all found out today.  Jeff is a good man, sad to see him have to go through what he has went though.  Glad that he got to tell people the way he wanted to tell them with out the word ever slipping out.  Good vibes, thoughts and prays for Mr. Foskett.

I’ll never forget Jeff’s kindness in arranging for my three granddaughters to go up on stage during Barbara Ann last year. He’s been a key player in the world of the Beach Boys and Brian Wilson for close to four decades now and during that time has easily been my favorite of the BW/BBs falsetto singers.

Jeffery, best wishes for good health and thank you for your superb vocal contributions to my all-time favorite music.

Speechless, and praying for our Jeff.

Yes, that article was about a different guy with the same name.

First and foremost it was surprising to hear how serious Jeff's health issues were and I wish him well and hope he is able to recover. 

I just looked at the track listing for Voices and noticed he inexplicably included his a capella recording of "Laughter In The Rain".  It appears to be the same exact version he put out years ago.  I'm wondering why this was repackaged?

Very sad news.

I just listened to Voices. I am absolutely digging this album. Chalk it up to ignorance on my part, but I didn't really realize Jeff's vocal range - I always just knew him as the falsetto guy...but he's got such a great range especially on those lower notes. His range all over 'Warmth of the Sun' is incredible. In the past I've been critical of how his falsetto was mixed onto Brian's albums (they always stuck his falsetto right on top of the mix instead of mixing it in and blending it, to my ears anyways). But I don't really get that feeling on this album. I just hear a lot of amazing harmonies that are really well mixed together.

True Love Ways, Everything That Touches You, Warmth of the Sun, I Shall Be Released, Heartbeat, Adios are amazing standouts (the rest of the tracks are great too, though).

I would imagine he added 'Laughter In The Rain' just because it fits so well with the rest of the material here, and if it is his last album I don't blame him for trying to package such a great a cappella track with the rest of these songs.

Sending prayers and good vibes your way Jeff. What a fantastic album.

The Beach Boys legacy is still being mortared to this day...it has a solid and unbreakable foundation of incredible songs that tower above most bands, yet some bricks are more brittle and ugly than others (even some bricks put down more recently)...thus is the nature of any entity that continues to exist. You are not defined solely by your good achievements in life, you're also defined by those unpleasant moments too. This law of life, thankfully, helps keep us all in check.

My love and best wishes for a really talented musician and one of the good guys in the BB orbit.

His cover of Jimmy Webb’s “Adios” is heartbreakingly beautiful.
