I have never seen this before, if you love Al Jardine, and let's face it who doesn't, this will put a smile on your face.

Thanks, rmf. That's really heartwarming. And hilarious at times.

AJ is one fantastic human being. Love the "impromptu" "Rhonda"! "Is that the end?" he asks about halfway through. LOL

Thanks for posting that.  I live near Rochester, and my girlfriend grew up very near where Al lived as a kid, though she was there ten years after he moved to California.  I recognize the drive they took in the video.  Very cool!

Al is just one classy guy. Love how he's having a blast singing Rhonda after what must've been hundreds of live performances of that song throughout his career.

That's just awesome.

Years ago, Milton Love said something to the effect that Al was the only member of the Beach Boys who had survived being a member of the Beach Boys.  Such an accurate insight.

This was lovely. Thanks!

Al obviously has a blast playing with Matt and the other fellow from his touring band (apologies, don't know his name) and it really comes through in the Rhonda segment.

 Amazing to say the least. And, there's nothing like having Al in the backseat of your car singing Beach Boy songs. I think the year was 1972 after a gig at the Villanova Field House. My buddy and I somehow managed to mingle with the band after the show. The band was staying at a hotel about a mile away so we offered him and a couple members of the band a ride there. We all sang BB songs the whole time. Al was great!
