Awww, Al correcting Brian made me sad. Sad

Al was on Brian's deaf side, so he probably didn't hear all of it before he said 'Barbara Ann'.

T'be fair, Brian wasn't far off at all. "Barbara Ann" was done in September '65, "WIBN?" started in January '66. The Party! and Pet Sounds sessions come dangerously close to one another in general with a small bit of technical overlap, so I don't know how "wrong" you could say he was.

Sure. Al just wanted to yap on about the artistic stuff and praise Brian as the genius when said genius suddenly interrupts with "... and Barbara Ann!".  Grin Also I think Al meant it more in terms of creative eras, or something. Gotta love Brian for these interview moments.

Ah, haha, I didn't go to the link and didn't see it in the context of Al talking in terms of creative eras.

Also from the CNN story. Mike joking but ohhh so true.

http://edition.cnn.com/2012/09/14/world/asia/hong-kong-beach-boys-stout/index.html

Love and Jardine then take to a small nearby stage and strike up an impromptu version of "California Girls" (with Al on bass and Mike doing vocals). Johnston then appears out of nowhere to play the piano.

But where was Wilson?

"Off to a buffet somewhere," quips Love with a smile.





OMG did you see the video when brian asks Mike if he took drugs?  Grin

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.

I also like this one at 2.50. Brian asked about Paul McCartney's praise for 'God Only Knows'.

'Well its a good song!'

Bruce reacts in a 'What can you say to that?' kind of way. Grin

And just after that - "We smoked marijuana to the point we got lost in the music and we didn't know where the f*** we were at."  Got to love Brian dropping the f-bomb on CNN!

I guess you just changed the title of the opening post, not the thread title itself.  Razz

Actually, it wouldn't mean Brianism is Appreciation Thread. The appostrophe is possessive, so the title Brianism's Appreciate Thread means that Brianism owns an appreciation thread.

It was Don Henley, who was reportedly nonplussed.

If it truly was Don Henley then I have yet another reason to consider Brian to be one of my heroes!

"We really turn on man." -Brian from the Bob Hope sketch from 65.

Reminds me of the kid on Almost Famous trying to be hip in saying: "Hey, man, take good care of her in San Francisco, man."

haha


But Brian doesn't need to be hip from what others made hip, he's in a hip zone all on his own.

re: the teen profiles- I love that Brian see's fit to point out that he is the tallest in the group. And, omg, Bruce has a ginger fetish and we are all participants in it by listening to Deirdre.

Awww, Al correcting Brian made me sad. Sad

Oh Brian has thrown more than enough shade Al's way to cancel it out. What I don't like is how Al (and Mike has done this many times before) talks about Brian's drug use and basically point to Brian and say "LOOK AT THE MESS THAT CAUSED!" I don't know if Brian gets embarrassed by it but I think it would embarrass an average person.

I always take exception with those moments, because it really was the anti-psychotics that Landy had Brian on that got him in that state.  You listen to interviews from 1976 and it seems like he's just kind of different, not spacey at all like he can be now.  The man is a survivor to be certain.

At 10:30. B.W. to Cousin Brucie: "Let me tell you something, I feel naked up here.".....Then Cousin Brucie to B.W.: "Brian Wilson, my friend, you can do anything you want...and you ain't naked!"  LOL

http://articles.latimes.com/1998/jul/12/magazine/tm-2833
In Wilson's slo-mo state of mind, dining out ranks among life's great pleasures. "I love going out to eat," he says earlier in the day. "The process of being served--the whole thing just blows my mind."

Sitting alone on the bench of a grand piano in his L.A. home, he described himself as "a scared little p*ssy."

"It looks like I'm going to have to go bananas all by myself." -B.W.

"Dr. Landy and Brian Wilson are right out of a storybook." -Brian Wilson

"So maybe Beach Boys fans are stupid and we can dismiss the whole thing. But maybe that's a pretty snotty attitude to take; maybe something is happening here that we just ought to know about" -Paul Williams

A new one:

Simon (Interviewer): "By the time you recorded Sunflower, all the other guys were contributing musically. How did it feel letting go of complete creative control?"

Brian: "I thought it was appropriate at that time. Carl had really come into his own as a producer and was helping with the vocal arranging. Dennis was flourishing as a songwriter and knew what he wanted on his records. It was a natural transgression."

And another:

"I'd love to meet Frankie Avalon. I don't know what he's up to. I'd thank him for 'Venus'."
