What's up with the snarly look on Bruce's face? Looks like he just came up from underground to represent the Lollipop Guild...

Amazing to me how much hair Al still has. In a lot of pics from the 70's and early 80's, he appears to be going bald. I suppose it's possible he had a transplant... but if so, why didn't Mike ever pursue that option, since it apparently is such a sensitive issue with him?
I guess that's why Bruce now wears the baseball cap on stage - in solidarity with Mike.

I think part of the fun of being a fan of the Beach Boys is every era is unique and somewhat cringy. My first recollection of the Beach Boys on TV was from the Walt Disney World special on July 4, 1988 (the Kokomo footage comes from that filming), so I have a soft spot for the 1980s era.

Behind that horizon line of hair straight across his head, Bruce has no hair behind it! See my link from the first page...he's also stopped dying it since then.

I think itís either a transplant or (more likely ) a combover

Okay, I guess that makes him the Micky Dolenz of the group. People kept telling me Micky was bald, but he appeared to have a full head of hair from the front. Maybe he was using hair-in-a-can, too - from Ronco!

Which do you prefer? For me, it's classic all the way




Brian and Carl must have both liked this yellow shirt...I wonder how often they wore each other's clothes  Cheesy

Prague '68, Mike in a djelllaba, banging on a tambourine.  All-time classic look.

Brian's yellow shirt would've been too big for Carl in that first shot (from '76). Two years later, though, it made a nice hand-me-down. Too much Heineken? Smiley

This is fascinating. We could probably do a thread of hand-me-down clothes that the band wore/share over the years. Including David Marks in his comically too-large jacket borrowed from someone else (Al?) at that earliest ever live pic from 1962.

I imagine that, being brothers and growing up in a family without lots of expendable income, that the Wilsons probably wore lots of hand-me-down clothes, pre-BBs, so it was likely something they were very familiar with already.

Let's talk about the shirt Al is wearing in that 78 pic...a Beach Boys shirt with a wide 70s collar (in a different colour than the rest of the shirt) and a pocket on the sleeve?  Amazing!

That would be a fun little research project!

I agree. Plus, I often got hand-me-downs from my cousins as well, so maybe Mike was part of the sharing too Grin
