While any Mike/Bruce dates *could* be bought off/rescheduled/rebooked, etc. in the event of a reunion tour, shows being booked into next year certainly makes it even less likely any reunion would be in the offing for that same year.

I do recall that at least one "symphonic" Mike/Bruce date for 2012 was nixed once the reunion started.

Mike and Bruce *did* play at least one private/charity gig in April 2012 *right* before the reunion tour started. Pics here: http://www.projectx101.howardkay.ca/

Have been seeing this on my FB feed from American Ballet Theatre:

May 30-June 3, Met, NYC - Twyla Tharp Trio will be performing to Beach Boys songs. Don t know all songs but it mentions "Deuce Coupe" and in the blurb "Devoted to You" with Mike and Brian is heard in the background

Heard last few minutes of Dean Torrence interview on the XM Sirius Beatles channel Fabforum. Pretty much all I heard was Jan and Dean's take on Norwegian Wood - thought it was ruined by the silly things the fake sitar was doing. Anyway, I posted it here because the interview might have had some Beach Boys content.
The show is available to listen to On Demand for those who have the app. I'll try to listen when I have the time.

Does anybody know of which “Shortnin’ Bread” rendition that Brian was most familiar with?

If it wasn't from hearing Audree (or someone else he knew) singing it, I'm guessing it's the version by The Andrews Sisters. The UK vocal group The Viscounts did a rocking version in 1960 but I doubt whether it got heard in the States. Everything else is too old, too new or too different!

And all this time I thought there was just one version! I thought it was just a nursery rhyme of some sort

Capt. Harris sang it in "Police Academy 4". police I knew it before hearing BBs' versions. Ha, kinda weird to be "Police Academy" AND Beach Boys fan simultaneously.

Considering how many times I've seen it, I should've known it!!! Granted it hasn't been in a few decades  but at one point I used to be able to quote dialog from PE3 and PE4 verbatim, so I really should've known

Dang, was hoping for a more definitive answer! The version by the Andrew Sisters is the one I’m most familiar with, but I thought there must be another that I’ve overlooked as I haven’t quite designated it “the greatest song in the world” yet... (that said, it is infectious--do I get to keep my BW points?  Razz) That Viscounts version is rockin’ though! Perhaps Alice Cooper knows which version Brian loved...or (past-tense) knew...possibly the slate has been wiped clean through years of therapy  LOL

Does anyone (C-man) have any idea who played on Rock and Roll to the Rescue? Is there any possible chance that Carl plays the acoustic? Or maybe Brian on keys because he was supposedly an uncredited (co-)producer?
