"Do me a favor: please keep writing all your wonderful music. I'll be listening." - Graham Nash. Could not agree more!

Al's comment made me laugh out loud haha.

All of these comments made me smile so much, but I gotta admit that I teared up when Jeff Bridges came on - him saying "it's going so damn fast." - ain't that the truth. The Dude abides, and so does Brian.

Thanks so much for posting that, STE.

Happy Birthday Brian!! I can't imagine just what the world would be like without you and your sooooooooooooooo wonderful music. The greatest thrill in my life has to be the several times I was able to meet you (and your brothers plus Al). We all are so blessed by what you've done for the world. I hope you have an incredible day with friends and family.

With much love,

God Bless You on your 80th Birthday, Brian! Thank you for everything your music and your inspiration has meant to me.

This is a small token of my gratitude and tribute. I did a cover of “Surf’s Up especially for the occasion.

Happy Birthday, Brian!

Many thanks for the links... the video was and is the surprise of the day/week/month for me. So many of Brian's colleagues from the art and craft of great songwriting... in a natural way, as they are now - sort of 'unplugged', so to speak.

Joe Walsh, Bob Dylan, Smoky Robinson - who's not to like here? Deeply touching!

PS I presume both links refer to the same video? I couldn't get the second one, but at any rate... there can't be a version that touches this one (except some comedy one by members of the Muppets, or something...)

No, they are different videos. The second one features Brian's friends and collaborators.

And production aside, I’d so much rather hear a 14 year old David Marks shred some guitar on Chug-a-lug than hear a 51 year old Mike Love sing about bangin some chick in a swimming pool.-rab2591

Thanks for clarifying that! I had assumed the Vimeo link was the same video.

So awesome to see those familiar faces wish Brian a happy birthday. Really glad to see Fred Vail was a part of this too. I hope Brian is having a great great day!
