These are really the only 2 performing groups I have nerded out about. I was thinking about the personalities of the Marx Brothers. Chico is a mixture of charm and addictive behavior. I thought he was the Dennis of the group. Groucho, a great performer, and wittiest, but also the most pessimistic and depressed in real life, would be like Groucho. Though I can see Mike Love in there as well. How he always performs confidently on stage, but a bit shy and aloof off stage. Also paranoid about the business aspect of things. Or Mike could be Harpo. The happiest persona in the group. I can't really compare Carl to anyone.  I quiet leader type.

David Marks is like Zeppo, having quit after the first five. And Murray is Margaret Dumont. Haha! I don't know.

Being a "MARXist" myself , I would say that Bruce's wonderful  Marx Bros-tribute "Brand New Old Friends" could easily be re-texted as a Wilson Bros-ditto(?) and should be re-recorded as such by the surviving Beach Boys altogether as one final project(?)

Haha! I also note a Brian Wilson 1974 interview on an Australian radio interview. There is a moment that Brian was staring at a photo, and the host told him that it was Groucho. Brian said, 'hi Groucho!'. This always makes me smile.  Smiley
