Someone should tell Mike Love

Saw BB's in a baseball staduim in New Hampshire many years ago. The stage was against the outfield wall and Mike turned around and looked at the forest in the back of the stage and mused "I think we've played here before....or was that in Maine? Ah well, all Pine trees look alike".

Found Kevin S. Leslie on facebook https://www.facebook.com/kevin.s.leslie?fref=pb&hc_location=friends_tab He's friends w/ Evan Landy https://www.facebook.com/evan.landy?fref=ufi

I sent Landy a message saying I'm a fan of B.W. & his father. Hopefully he'll reply. Brains & Genius ftw!  Razz

Did you tell him your screen name was "The Ghost of Dr Landy"?

Yeah, John even got Brian to appear on "Full House" with the band, that's how bad it got.
Exactly. He wasn't that much on it though, to be fair:





Time for a Beach Boys huddle

131  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: NY Post: Beach Boys Still Feisty After 50 Years on: July 28, 2014, 09:07:19 AM
Remaining Beach Boy Bruce Johnston wouldn’t comment on any reunion with his former mates, telling The Post’s John Aidan Byrne in Spain, “I need to think, I can’t talk right now.”

Why does this article exist?...

Lol...I envision Bruce walking past the reporter giving him a dismissive wave like he would some ebay autograph collector  as he says that line
132  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: The Weirdest Photos Of Mike Love You Can Find on: July 07, 2014, 05:05:14 AM
have at it:



Mike: "Ya see Bill, we may be getting on in age but we still know how to have a good time after the show, if you follow"

O'Reilly: "I see"

Mike: "Now we got quite a scene going on backstage here. If you want in, I'll arrange it, but you gotta wear an animal mask".

O'Reilly: "I want in"

Mike: "Somebody get O'Reilly the giraffe mask!"
133  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: O.k. 'splain this to me: What keeps Al from playing with Mike whenever he wants? on: July 03, 2014, 04:38:09 AM
For what it's worth I stopped seeing the "Beach Boys" after Carl's death as well, on principle. To me it wasn't the Beach Boys with just M&B, and I wasn't going to have any part in it. And you know what, despite my position, Mike kept touring year after year. I did see Brian solo during these years btw. Then came C50, my first BB's shows in 17 years and obviously they were amazing, then the fallout after. It got me thinking, If I wait another 17 years these guiys will all be dead. Am I going to change Mike's mind of touring as the BB's by not going? Would I have a problem if he called it Mike Love of the BB's? No. Then I got to thinking, why deprive myself of seeing and hearing my favorite music because of what they are billed as. I went and saw M&B last year and thought they were great, and I'm going to see them again next month. And if Al comes along I'll see him, or Dave, or Brian, or Blondie too. I'm gonna see them as much as I can cause I love them all and love the music and I don't think there will be another reunion so I aint sitting on the sidelines waiting.
134  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Al joining Mike and Bruce for Jones Beach show on: June 25, 2014, 09:08:19 AM
Does anybody really think both Brian and Al were fabricating the offers from promoters for more shows, and another album, etc.?

Then he got into a war of words with the band The Eagles by making a comment that upset them, about selling tickets for $5, which led to an angry reply from the Eagles' PR offices, and *then* led to Mike's publicist issuing a public apology to the Eagles.

And...that apology included Mike sending "gift bags" to the managers of the band members as a token of apology.

That statement was made by Mike at the Grammy Museum event, prior to the band playing the UK and within a day or few days after his press release that caused all the controversy was issued.

So if anyone is pushing a theory that Al and Brian or whoever else were inventing phony tour/show offers or anything of the sort, they're crazy...because Mike himself got the offers and spoke to those offers specifically at the Grammy event.

There is more, of course. I'm still curious what was in Mike's "gift bags" that were sent to the Eagles as a peace offering.

Those might be the biggest mystery of the C50 aftermath... Grin

Backsage passes to "Klub Kokomo" and a USB with Shut Down and All Summer Long

Mike eliminates the band and almost all lighting in order to cut down on touring costs.

 LOL

"Y'know Gene, I've got a 'Love Gun' of my own..."

"I don't really want to hear about it."

"C'mon Gene. You've got 'Nothin' to Lose'."

"Please stop."

"That's it Gene. I'm 'Calling Dr. Love' right now."

"Look can't you at least reference your own work?"

"But that would be no 'Fun Fun Fun'."

"I think we're done here."

Reporter off camera: "Which of you gentlemen has sullied your bands legacy the most by exploiting it's brand"?

Oh wow, I've never seen that one. This confirms my beleif that at some point prior to that appearance, the Devil came to Mike and offered a deal for another #1 hit if Mike would sell the band's soul.

144  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Assuming they retire at age 75... on: May 08, 2014, 07:24:09 AM
Does aynone think that Mike will ever retire? I think he'll rock till he drops. He must be enjoying himself don't you think? I'm surprised that Bruce hasn't grown tired of the road. He still produces albums, doesn't he? He'll be in the studio when all is done.

If Mike does retire (due to age and health?) I can see Al taking the lead for the Beach Boys. Al's voice is too good to stop anytime soon. I'd like to see a Al/David BB touring group someday.

I don't know but I think that Brian would be glad to retire. He's accomplished quite a bit with Smile nd his solo career. He can rest easy.

My question is who will get the Beach Boys name when everyone retires? David? The kids?

As long as Mike is healthy I beleive he will keep on going. He's constantly referencing Tony Benett and how he is still going strong well into his 80's and I gotta beleve that's Mike's goal as well.  "Betcha boys we'll be doing it in our eighties"

   Looking forward to seeing Mike & Bruce in Columbus OH this summer - my first time with this edition of the band. Opening act will be America.

The Beach Boys found a band with less original members than they have!?!

America has two thirds of the original line up, and has since 1977. M&B has one third of real Beach Boys.
147  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: 1991 interview with Mike, Al, and Bruce on: April 13, 2014, 06:34:11 AM
Nice interview.....People Are Talking was a local Boston show hosted by Tom Bergeron before he made it big with Dancing with the Stars. Saw the Boys later that night at Great Woods. Thanks for posting this clip.
148  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Questions for Blondie Chaplin on: March 27, 2014, 11:04:43 AM
Ask him "what if the Beach Boys never existed"  Roll Eyes

Seriously, ask what (if any) his plans are for 2014 in regards to possible further recording/touring with Brian (and Al & Dave).
149  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: The Weirdest Photos Of Mike Love You Can Find on: March 24, 2014, 03:34:28 PM

Mike finally updates his stage shtick by performing a striptease routine in the middle of "Don't Worry Baby".

One of the very few photographs to surface from The Beach Boys private show in Jabba The Hut's throne room.

From a 2011 interview
And then along comes Chuck Berry and Mike Love, and the creation of rock n roll, so to speak.


Mike reads later and nods in agreement..... LOL

"Mike Love's gotta be the greatest thing that's come along
(Hum diddy waddy, hum diddy wadda)
He made the guitar beats and wrote the all-time greatest song
(Hum diddy waddy, hum diddy wadda)
Well now do you remember all the guys that gave us rock and roll
(Hum diddy waddy doo)"
