Yes indeed, there is a huge difference in having Brian doing a cruise gig on his own with his own name, than having Mike do show called A BEACH BOYS CRUISE apparently celebrating for the 60th anniversary of this legendary group.

It's tacky and it's based on a hoax.

 Whatever!. How embarrassing that Mike Love has to use the awful Stamos as a crutch to sell more tickets. Mike and Bruce with their band of unknowns are horrible enough but with Stamos in tow, I can't think of how the fake wannabe Beach Boys could be more embarrassing.

Just re watched the video and it was Cowsil who sang the Add Some Music parts, and not real well. Watching alot of the rest of the so, I must add that IMHO Christian Love is a real weak spot in the vocals. Don't know what he contributes on the guitar, but vocally, his leads are weak, generally lagging behind the music a beat, and extremely bland. He now does the lead on Rhonda, and it remains a weak spot. Nepatism at it's best I guess, but the other guys in the vocal blend don't sound much better. Hard to believe the name f this band is the Beach Boys...such a downgrade from what I remember growing up in the 60s'/70s, not to mention the live performances in the 80's and 90's. Very weak.
This is EXACTLY why the name should be RETIRED and laid to rest. Let this collection of subpar wannabees continue under some other moniker but NOT under the Beach Boys name for god's sake! Unfortunately, as long as Mike Love is still around and being the moneygrubber he is, it's doubtful that will happen. Such a shame to see a once great band go down in flames like this.  Embarrassed Embarrassed Embarrassed Cry Cry

It's well known that I am not fond of Mike Love. I consider him to be no better than trash. There has always been jealousy between the Wilsons and Mike Love. They sang better, absolutely looked better and were far more talented than Mike Love. This hit Mike Love hard in the ego department and we all know he never and still hasn't gotten over it. My take is that it was always Mike's desire to "own" the band and with Dennis sadly gone and Carl on his way out, all Mike Love had to do was fire Al and BINGO, his plan started to fall into place. With the Wilsons out of his way, he could start to build around himself and create an entity that, in his warped delusional mind, he thought he could fine tune into what he thought the Beach Boys should be. With Mike Love's path cleared of obstacles, he could bend, shake and reform a once incredible band into a vehicle that suited his moronic vision. With his insidious behavior over the last few decades, he has watered down a fine legacy and has created an incredibly embarrassing picture of what used to be. Mike Love is 80 and looks and sounds every bit of 80. My hope for this ungrateful creep is that he loses whatever voice he now has, that he loses the license, and is soon asked to not perform on stage because he can't sing and hopefully being in a wheelchair, his image would not go over well with the public. I believe that he wants to die while on stage (he's doing a fairly good job of it as we speak) but my hope is that he'll be asked to leave before that might happen. Whatever the case may be, I'm hoping he goes out as the turd that he is and it's not the way HE wants it to be.

Ahh yes, Mike Love's vision of the Beach Boys has come to fruition and has, at the same time, hit a new low much further down than anyone could have imagined. Good job ASSHOLE!!  Evil Evil Evil Evil

As it should beÖ.. Evil
And you're right, SB. I heard a good part of it on another board. Mike Love was absolutely awful with off key, thin tinny vocals and mostly sounding like a faulty jackhammer. The whole act is more shot than his voice and it's so sad to see the legacy treated this way by this money grubbing over the hill clown. It's far beyond time to pull whatever rights he may have and put this jackass out to pasture for good. The name (BB's) should also be retired as it should have after Carl and Dennis were gone and Mike Love kicked Al out of the band. Hey Mike, IT'S OVER!!! FOR GOD'S SAKE, LET IT GO!!!  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

Next will be special guests Right Said Fred

I'm surprised Mike hasn't worked that song into his setlists:

Mike: "I'm too sexy for my hat, too sexy for my hat..."
Bruce: "I'm too sexy for my shorts, too sexy for my shorts..."
Mike: "I'm too sexy for my rings, too sexy for my rings..."
Bruce: "I'm too sexy for my mic stand, too sexy for my mic stand..."

Crowd:


Hey Craig, I'm fairly sure that's me doing the thumbs down but I can't remember where it was! I think Smile Brian will back me up on this.

It's just a testament to the incredible music this band released for many years that even with the current Beach Boys being presented in fairgrounds throughout the United States they are still held in such high regard to this day. A timeless band.

That said I love Mike and he has earned the right to do and say whatever he wants
Yeah, that irresponsible comment said, it appears that Mike Love has been doing that for at least 2 decades now and that is why we have the negative comments we do here, Twitter, the Hoffman Board, Youtube, and all the rest of the sites on the internet. There's never beena more hated individual as Mike Love is. He's all mouth against Brian and Dennis until he's interviewed and even then, he downgrades their relevance just to make himself look good but it backfires in his ugly, botox ridden fake face. The music may be timeless but Mike love stopped being looked on as necessary 3 decades ago. What a drip.
13  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Oh god on: June 14, 2021, 09:16:34 PM
Egh. That ain't The Beach Boys.

But in sadder news, is Foskett no longer touring with them at all? I assume he's been at home dealing with the cancer? Does anybody know how he's doin'?
You're right Jim, this ain't the Beach Boys in any way, shape or form. The Beach Boys were over with after Dennis and Carl were no longer with us and when Mike Love in his infinite wisdom fired Al Jardine after that. The collection of mostly unknown sidemen in that picture are not and will never be The Beach Boys and goes to prove that having a license to call yourself that name means absolutely nothing. Thanks to that douchebag Mike Love, there's little left of the legacy that was and by the time he's done, who knows what will be left.  Roll Eyes

His page says portions will be donated to charity.

I personally don't have an issue w/ Mike joining Cameo. I think it's a great platform and can bring a lot of happiness to people.

So he's donating next to nothing of hardly anything to charity - I withdraw my criticism.

Look I get the point that Mike might be spreading some joy, but seriously, how many people are going to use this? and what is a 'portion' usually when that word is used it's a small portion.

Hey now, his "viral Super Bowl" song made tens of dollars for Covid charity (probably even enough to buy part of an N95 mask for a healthcare worker), I'm sure this will be another slam dunk, giving aid to the countless children who go bed without TM every night.

Good one Rab! LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL

No way Mike needs some cash this bad... especially after the Azoff sale. Maybe he's just bored

Nah, it's just the same old greedy anything for a buck Mike Love.  Roll Eyes

Hi guys! Is there a new member board somewhere? I'm actually nts1drums on the Endless Harmony Board.

Now, as for the slump, OSD, did you look at the San Miguel board? I personally thought that that was interesting.

San Miguel Board?? Huh?  Huh
17  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: SS board slump on: April 18, 2021, 01:22:51 PM
It's still very active on here when we actually have news


Right. That Endless Harmony board is far busier but not in a good way in that there some really bland threads that have no interest, at least to me. Just a heaping amount mundane crap that most of us know anyway. The threads here are mostly interesting but there have been a few duds which happen everywhere. Besides that, I like the mods here as opposed to the Gestapo in EH land.  
18  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: A little video about Guess I'm Dumb on: April 13, 2021, 08:16:21 AM

Very enjoyable and interesting indeed! Makes me wonder if there's an outtake or demo lying around anywhere of Brian singing this incredible song.
19  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Most important Beach Boys members in vocal blends? on: March 22, 2021, 06:10:06 PM

While there was probably more to it like talent and personality, I never thought that Bruce was the right one to replace Brian on the road. His vocals sounded unusually tinny and weak and didn't resonate well with the others. When he sang both on tracks and live it was always easy to identify as Bruce and not an integral part of the blend. I would have liked to have seen Flo and Eddie, who's harmony was akin to the boys, join the group. They could have handled Brian's parts and after Carl passed pick up his parts as well. I think both of those guys who ended up with Zappa would have complimented the boys vocals both on record and the stage as well far better than Bruce.

Ah 1965, the halcyon time when art and commerce were one in the BBs story.... Cool Guy

For sure, Bro, and it all worked very well when Brian was in charge of the whole thing and the others did what they were told to do.    After a while, not so much. Roll Eyes

Yeah birthday shurmfday, you clown. Think, where the eff do you think you'd be right now if it wasn't for the guy you've made a career of tearing down? It wouldn't be pretty and you would have never seen the kind of life you lead, the house you live in, your portfolio, the skads of unearned money you've raked in. Hardest working Beach Boy?? I think not because you live, eat and breathe being on the road and on the stage. Without that you're stone cold dead so I don't want to hear that it's some kind of really hard "work"! Your managers do everything for you so all you have to do is walk on stage and be the clown you so rightfully are.  Nope, no birthday greetings for you Mike because you're the most hated, embarrassing clown the world of rock and roll has ever witnessed.

That youíve posted a comedically deranged screed twice (once here, once at the Steve Hoffman forums, where youíre being laughed at) shows that you are a deeply unpleasant person.

Iíve seen your posts and either you have a massive hard-on for Mike Love that you canít admit to yourself, or youíre a psychopath that the cops need to keep an eye on.
No, Conspiracy, no cops needed. I trust they've got better things to do and besides, they know they've got you  police to watch me.  LOL LOL LOL

If I remember correctly, people approached the stage after the maharishi departed and raided the flowers which were in abundance. The floor was completely strewn with flowers which seemingly stood for the the complete sham that it was. What a Mike Love debacle trying to shove TM down the throats of BB fans.
25  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: New article about the 1968 BB-Maharishi tour on: February 13, 2021, 09:34:09 PM

I regrettably attended one of these shows and I thought the boys played a decent  show. The place pared down to about half of it's capacity was half empty. What was strange was that the maharishi came on after the boys and people immediately left leaving the dude with just a handful to talk to. I felt fairly embarrassed for the group and had to wonder what the hell they were thinking. Looking back now I'm confident that this was the hairbrained idea of none other than Mike Love and ended up costing the band millions and degrading their image which is still going on today. I'm just thankful that Brian wasn't part of this charade.
