In history, only two acts have sold over a billion records. Elvis Presley and The Beatles. One of them is seeing his stock plummeting now, due to his fan base getting older and dying, Elvis. It's come to the point where UK papers are giving away his albums. Elvis memorabilia and old Sun 45's, watch them get cheaper and cheaper. Same thing will happen to The Beatles. Only a decade sets them apart. If the two best-selling acts in history will fade, so will The Beach Boys. Who knows what people will listen to one, two, or five hundred years from now.
 

 Possibly, but The Beatles and The Beach Boys are arguably more popular with younger generations than Elvis Presley. Sure, they all know Elvis, but that's a different matter than actually listening to his music. A lot of kids listen to The Beatles and The Beach Boys.

  Unlike some PET SOUNDS cuts, I never tire of "That's Not Me." It resonates strongly over the decades. Wonderful vocals by Mike, yes.

I sure hope Bruce is alright. Surfers' Pajama Party is awesome, and despite his all around general douchiness he's made some nice contributions to music. So hopefully all is well. Wishing him a quick recovery.

  What a gracious get well wish.

Oh well. I think he's a douchenozzle. But I also think he's a talented guy who has made some nice music. And while I hope that he stays in good health, I don't think he's the greatest man who ever lived. I think he's been very disrespectful to those who make his lifestyle possible and ergo, I don't think he deserves to be sainted.

However, I hope he sticks around for a long, long time.


  You make some reasonable points Jim. Bruce can be an odd duck. Wishing him the very best

Does Mike Love realize that he is despised, loathed, or (in some cases) hated by millions of music fans? What is this guy's level of awareness that so many people dislike him?

Sometimes he may say something like "well some people may not like such and such thing I did, but cousin Brian was on drugs and I needed to... blah blah blah."

There seem to be some quick acknowledgments that people may not like a couple of isolated acts of his. But does this dude realize how widely despised he is by so many people?


 Despised by just "millions"? You might be lowballing this...it may run into the billions. Gee, another Mike Love hate thread on Smiley Smiley.

Not that I "enjoy" it, but I am extremely angry about the whole thing. Rather than let the anger consume me, I make light of it. Once I found out he was implying something untoward on why I was homeless to others, I saw the pattern and the gloves came off. So yeah, I have no love at all for that Quaker Oats Guy-looking motherfucking charlatan .

edit


that said, yeah, I probably should let it go.

 Well, I shouldn't tell you how to feel about it. I get that both sides feel angry and betrayed. This is my last comment on the issue.

How long will it take to repair the damage caused by the lies and the liars, not to mention their supporters and people naive enough to believe and defend this crap? When that happens, it will be locked. Until then, how do those who got trashed and are still being trashed challenge any of it?

We didn't cause this.

I'm with you.

 Perhaps neither of you caused this, but you perpetuate it on a daily basis. AGD is gone from Smiley Smile, presumably forever. Everyone understands something funky went down. Specifics remain murky and I for one am fine not knowing.  The way forward would be to let it go, but the mods here continue to savor the whole affair. Why? Because you enjoy it. Billy's current moniker makes that very clear.

  For years and years and years, AGD's boorish behavior was tolerated, rationalized, condoned...even celebrated. Now he is Public Enemy Number One in Smiley Smile world. Funny how the wind shifts...
19  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Short New Interview w/ Mike on ABC News Website on: January 18, 2017, 03:27:58 PM
  Mike has been pressing the "I was the idea man" angle very hard in recent years. Yes, Mike wrote many lyrics, but it's not like he was the idea man a la Pete Townshend or Roger Waters. I'm all for Mike getting his due but his (relatively) subtle portrait of Brian as an idiot savant who could arrange great harmonies has become offensive.

 One could make the case that Dennis was the "concept guy" - didn't he live the life?

 Mike Love has once again entered the realm of "insufferable." Less charitable fans might say he never left it.

 Hey Mike & Bruce: Just take next summer off. Maybe we'll miss you if you go away.
20  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Mike is kind of playing the inauguration.... on: January 18, 2017, 04:40:27 AM
I got accused of being a racist since I'm a BB fan. f*** this sh*t.

  Then that is ignorance on the part of the accuser.  I wouldn't play a Trump event either, but some people are becoming hysterical.
21  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Mike is kind of playing the inauguration.... on: January 17, 2017, 05:52:10 PM
Why didn't Mike and Bruce play the Texas ball in 2008 or 2012 if it is "non-partisan"? Roll Eyes

  They weren't invited maybe? Remember, Bruce publicly called Obama an a$$hole in 2012.

24  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Mike's leadership of the band on: January 09, 2017, 06:48:07 PM


And there you have the reason Brian said 'I don't write songs that way now'.

I know this has been mentioned in the past with the Problem Child music video, but is it a coincidence that Carl started wearing dark glasses all the time (perhaps out of embarrassment) right at the same time that the band's music started getting reallllly sketchy? Probably just a coincidence, but one can wonder.


 Classic.
25  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Wishes for Beach Boys 2017 on: January 09, 2017, 06:45:58 PM
  Peace and good health for all The Beach Boys and their families.

  A Surf's Up reissue w/ bonus tracks.

  Archival live releases from the 70s.

  Any new music they care to release.
