Johnny Depp and Jeff Beck did a beautiful version of Time in their new album:

I could never see Stamos, despite all his years of trying to emulate Dennis, pull off something like that.

It's a nice cover of an underrated song.  I kinda wish they did more with the instrumental last half of the track (the horn part is sorely missed here), but this is still pretty well done.  Beck and Depp also cover "Don't Talk (PYHOMS)" and "Caroline, No" on that same album.  Glad to see that Beck's rather awkward experience he had touring and recording with BW never deterred his overall appreciation for the group.

New interview with Jeff Beck still complaining about Brian,  still not understanding Brian's deal after 87 years, and not remembering the title to either "Surf's Up" or whatever the other song is he's talking about (You Still Believe In Me?). Watching him try to speak with reverence for Brian and Dennis while talking s*it at the same time is,  well,  something.

Sounds like it's just Jeff Beck being Jeff Beck.  I don't really detect any true malice in his rhetoric.  It's readily apparent that he holds some appreciation towards the band but isn't a diehard like us and just wasn't prepared for Brian's idiosyncrasies.  Which is completely reasonable.  I for one really dug the tour he and Brian did awhile back and it was lovely to hear them all perform "Surf's Up" together.  

In fairness Vince Gill wasn't familiar with "Surf's Up" either when he was asked to perform it at Brian's 2001 tribute concert.  He assumed it was just another fun-in-the-sun beach tune and was in for a rude awakening when he first played the track.

While Beck is being kind of disrespectful in a kind of flippant way (kind of talking about Brian as if he died years ago or something) in this new interview, I'm also referencing what Beck said after the 2013 tour.

I think Beck still claiming to be confused about Brian's deal *after* the 2013 tour made no sense, and reeked either of him being a d**k in a pretty malicious way, or being aloof and clueless to a perplexing degree. Nobody on Beck's team did any due diligence to understand Brian's deal? He professed to be a fan, had already done that Musicares Brian tribute gig several years prior.

I think Beck signed on to that tour out of self-interests. Which, fair enough obviously. But to go on after the tour and trash Brian in a very non-sympathetic, non-empathetic, and just uncool way, it just left a really bad taste.

And if Beck, in this new interview, is saying he was off-put by Brian back during that Musicares show *years* before he signed on for the 2013 tour, then that makes even less sense. It sounds like Beck wanted a big pat on the back from Brian for covering one of his songs. If you knew ANYTHING about Brian (see: the story about Brian signing a CD for Don Henley, among many others), you'd understand that that's not what's going to happen. And if you knew ANYTHING about Brian, you'd know that his personality and Beck's are SO opposite each other, it's amazing they could ever work together in ANY capacity. As someone pointed out back in 2013, even both being "car guys", they're not even into remotely the same type of cars!

I'm not saying people who have weird or bad interactions with Brian should never be able to discuss such things. When Beck talks about Brian, he talks about him the way someone who knows *nothing* about Brian would talk about him. And that's pretty s**tty for someone who has benefited from their professional association with him.

As was also pointed out back in 2013 when Beck seemed confused or miffed or whatever that there weren't more tour dates or that Brian wasn't doing anything with the studio tracks they had cut, it's worth pointing out that Beck has soured MANY working relationships with others over the years, and has seen a number of projects he's been involved with canceled/shelved, etc. One that always comes to mind is the "guitar concerto" he recorded with McCartney. Not one note of that has ever seen the light of day, and McCartney has never worked with Beck since (or before for that matter really).

I already made my feelings known about Depp in another Beck/Depp thread, so I won't belabor the point again, other than to say it makes total sense that Beck would team up with Depp both on a personal and professional level.

Fair enough and I don't completely disagree but again this all sounds like my initial reaction: it's just Jeff Beck being Jeff Beck.  Maybe he's coming off dismissive and cantankerous about his encounters with Brian, but it doesn't really seem worth getting too bent out of shape over.  This idea that Beck and his people are expected to fully and completely understand Brian's situation and cater wholly to it is not realistic, especially when egos are involved.  Perhaps the Beck/Wilson pairing could be described as a cautionary tale of being careful about meeting your heroes. 

And let's not undermine the fact that his new album with Depp has three songs written by the Beach Boys (two BW songs and one from Dennis).  I think that speaks for itself in terms of Beck and Depp's appreciation towards the group.  And that matters more to me than any curmudgeonly commentary from Beck himself.

Honestly, while I feel for Depp dealing with an unhinged nightmare like AH, fact is he's got plenty of his own issues and frankly I am, at this point, so sick of hearing about JD and really wish he'd disappear for a while.  I don't care to ever see the dude in the news or in a movie or anywhere else for that matter.  There's plenty of guys who have had to deal with the proverbial "psycho GF" who unlike him are not wealthy celebrity shmucks, and if they are lucky enough to A) survive the trauma of being in such a relationship and B) manage to escape it, they don't then get the jack off silver linings of taking the stage with musicians who far exceed their meager capabilities and in fact only tolerate their presence because they are a celebrity douche bag.
