Calling all L.A. friends . . .

In celebration of The Beach Boys' incredible SAIL ON SAILOR - 1972 box set (12/2/22) all of us at BRI/Iconic/UMG have compiled, I'll be moderating the "A Conversation with Mike Love" in Los Angeles at the GRAMMY Museum on Wednesday, November 16th.

Join us -- and special guests TBA -- to dig into this incredible era and the music that defined it.

Pre-sale tickets are available now and the General Onsale begins Saturday 10/30 at 12pm PT.

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

I can think of a few guests who I would like to see there, health permitting. Neutral ground and promoting a great set. Calling Rob Reiner! 😉

OMG, I can just here it now....."I was the driving force behind the hole SOS era, I had to be, cause The Wilsons, were all zoned out on drugs and alcohol, and Al didn't have enough talent. So I had to take control, and keep Blondie and Ricky in line as the new members". Can't you just here him saying this?Huh

Man, doesn't Mike Love do enough on his own without us having to castigate him for things he hasn't actually said? I'm not like a huge Mike person myself, but it just brings down the mood, you know? This looks like a great event, I wish I could be there.

Would be curious to hear what he has to say about this period of the band.  Out of all the band members he always seemed to be the most resistant towards revisiting this period.

Yes, clearly there's at least some level of effort being expended to engender some healing and solidarity in the band at this point, what with an important box set coming out in a month and in need of as much buzz as it's possible to muster. It's obvious that Mike is doing "what he can and oughta" in support of a very creative and frenetic time frame for the BBs, one that can be positioned to appeal to a broader, present-day audience. My guess is that he'll keep the distortion to a minimum, and give Carl a lot of credit for his work during the period. (Let's not forget the CATP production credit, with its "especially Carl" annotation.)

From the standpoint of making an interview with Mike about this period produce the most value in putting across the SOS/CATP set, that's what I think is the way to frame it. Perhaps those in attendance will let us know how it went...and assuming it's filmed, maybe we'll see it for ourselves sometime next month.

All the guys have been pretty mind-blowing in their recollections for the past few projects.
Especially this time around -- some really specific memories about instrumentation and impetus for each song.

You would think they wouldn't remember -- but Mike had total recollection re: how the lyrics to "He Come Down" came about, Al on push and pull of settling on Holland as the relocation spot, Brian on what ELSE he was listening to while writing in Holland. We shouldn't confuse them never, or very rarely, being asked with not remembering. ALL these guys, Ricky & Blondie included, remember A LOT.

And c’mon people, whatever misgivings a fan might have regarding the idea of a Mike Love interview in the abstract, this is a case where we can finally rest assured that both sides of the conversation will be informed and that there will be no BS. Howie knows how to ask good questions, and I know Mike knows that Howie knows his s**t. This is not going to be a Wink Martindale situation, nor even a Rob Reiner situation. I don’t think we’re going to get questions about which Beach Boys surfed, or who wrote “Kokomo.”  

No need to create weird strawman arguments (obviously we’ve seen some unfortunate Mike interviews over the years, but I’ve never seen him literally say anything like “Al didn’t have enough talent for…” whatever.)

These guys do remember way more than you would think; they just need to be asked. Don’t ask me how I know, but Mike will sing you “Wontcha Come Out Tonight” if you prompt him. The stuff is there in the memory banks. We’re finally in a place and time where these guys will talk about “He Come Down!”

If one approached me and asked what would make a good Mike Love interview, the two things I’d pick is having Howie do the interview, and for it to be long-form. Both are the case here.

The thing we should be hoping for is some good audio/video of the entire event.
