Good interview with Al, including some reunion talk. He's always the one that breaks reunion talk first! http://chicagoconcertreviews.com/2020/03/04/al-jardine-beach-boys/

Says they’ll play “20-30” shows next year. Interesting...

Gotta love Al.  He's always the first to break any significant BB news. 

I for one hope these 60th anniversary shows really do happen, and will likely try to attend if they do.  It likely would be the last hurrah, as Mike/Brian/Al would be all be pushing 90 for the 70th anniversary.

Hope this darned virus is no longer an issue next year...

I’ve got a Carl Wilson song I’d like to finish too. There’s a couple of songs that we never released that he sang on that I think should be finished.


 Shocked
Is he talking about yet another song? "Don't fight the sea" turned out such a great thing and "Waves of love" is charming as well.

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

Probably talking about waves of love as at least one of those songs. I actually really like that song I think both All n Carl do a nice job on it and the music is pretty cool too.

BW: Can’t. Coronavirus.
ML: But Brian that was last year
BW:Coronavirus
(Bruce adjusts face mask nervously)
ML: But Bri-
BW: CORONAVIRUS!!!

Reunion ends, Mike and Bruce give interview with Rolling Stone saying it “felt like being quarantined “ then tour with Eric Clapton.

Amazing that that interview has been online seemingly since the 4th of March and it's only been picked up here nearly 2 months later

I can't see a reunion happening in the current climate. A lot of tours are being cancelled or postponed. Yes, we would all love for this virus to go away, disappear. Some of us might even be swallowing Lysol now!
I know we chuckle at the thought of a 70th anniversary reunion, but I remember when the thought of a rock and roll band being together for 25 years seemed crazy. "A bunch of bald headed or gray haired guys in their 40's singing about school, surfing, cars, and girls in bikinis....how pathetic!"
If some of the guys are still around in another 10 years, if covid-19 hasn't completed wiped us all out.....yes, it will happen.

I know Mike has said he will continue for as long as he can, and that’s fine, but I do think the stars could be aligning for some kind of closure. Bruce will be 79 next year and does he really want to be touring the same tired circuit to ever decreasing numbers? Maybe he wants out. Perhaps it’s time the name is retired and Mike tours solo if he wants to. It would certainly be cheaper for him with no BRI to pay. Let any member still wanting to play (Mike, Al, Brian, even Bruce and Dave) use ‘... of the Beach Boys’ in any tour publicity at no charge and be done with it. They have all earned it.
Brian’s health is certainly declining (and that’s being polite) and deserves to see out his days as he sees fit. While not agreeing with a C60 concept, if they have to do it again I say market it as a ‘Farewell Brian’ limited tour and let it rest.

However it plays out I’ll watch with interest from the wings but will sit this dance out.

He’s almost 80. He looks like he’s almost 80. Don’t get the shovel yet, Pretty Funky. We’re lucky he’s still here at all.



I personally don’t want another tour though. Let Brian rest, I agree. Just not In Peace. Not for a long time, I sincerely hope.

I love those guys – all of them.

If they want to do a 60th anniversary tour, and Brian and Mike can get along long enough to do a couple of dozen shows, I say let's Do It Again.

2021 is long enough for virus concerns to possibly go away (here's hoping) and for a bit of musical personal training to take place, where desired...

You & me both, man.   Dude has tremendous hair for a guy pushing 80.   Amazing.  What were in all those Radiant Radish vitamins?  LOL

Must be a Korthof thing.  Brian has a better hairline at ~78 than Murry did at 50.  And, of course, the follicular challenges of Glee Wilson's boys are well known.

I’m going to be 41 in July and I’m happy to say I still have it all, unlike some of my fellow Gen X/Y/whatever peeps. ‘Course it doesn’t help that I look 25. I hope I have a full head of hair like Bri when I reach his age, I wouldn’t care if it’s all silver or white. Baldness is hereditary through your mother’s side I think so that would make sense that Glee’s boys are losing it while Brian still has it, and if they were still alive, so would Denny and Carl.

Anyway.

No matter what happens, I think one thing is certain: Mike Love has every intention of taking the name "The Beach Boys" to the grave with him. He's not letting go of that touring license under any circumstances.

I'd love for this to happen. 2012 was a magical year in The Beach Boys world, regardless of how it ended. The legacy deserves it.

Personally, I don't care if they get back together again or not. Quite honestly, it would be a hypocritical mess with Mike Love demanding this or that or the other thing that would satisfy that clown. Mike has had his time with Brian and the others. Let him fade into obscurity with nutty Bruce and long may his legacy be as rotten in the future as it is now. Much to his chagrin, he'll go down as a plague, virus or pockmark on that legacy that he worked so hard to deserve.  Evil

Then more fool him.  I recall he pays a set percentage then an amount over and above that depending on the income which this year may be zilch, and possibly next year. I wonder if he negotiated a ‘in the event of a pandemic’ clause back in 1998? If he is having to pay BRI whether he tours or not I feel sooo sorry for the guy. 🤞😂

Per various lawsuit information on the internet, ML's original license "required a royalty of 20 percent of the first $1 million and 17.5 percent of receipts thereafter."  Mike's recent autobiography states it a bit differently.  He doesn't mention the 20% of the first $1,000,000 but rather just the 17.5 percent royalty and, according to his book, the royalty is based on touring revenue after expenses for lighting and sound.

In short, it would appear that ML doesn't pay BRI any royalty unless he's actually touring.

What if Mike finds himself actually enjoying this enforced time off? Do you think there's a chance he may decide to pursue a more leisurely schedule once things return to normal (whatever that is)?
I also hope that Brian is enjoying his time off, and finding that, actually it's okay to be at home with the missus and the kids. I hope they enjoy having daddy around.

That will be the case for a few artists I think. If the talk of immunisation in 12-18 months is correct then the likelihood of fans wanting to gather in venues holding several thousand for the next 2 US/ UK touring seasons is unlikely.

My son is a huge Springsteen fan and he said the boss has always liked the thought of going quietly. This might be his out.
