Does anyone know who played the drums on "Some Of Your Love?"

Wild Honey is sometimes referred to as The Beach Boy's R&B album. What artists were among their R&B influences at the time?

I remember reading that Al lent his Strat to Fender's custom shop, but never heard any follow ups. It makes sense that he'd have some repros made rather than risk his vintage one biting the dust on the road. I wonder what year his original one is that the reproductions are based on? This is the red one that was repainted white? Did I read that the original white Strat he was first using when he came back to the band was stolen?

I hadn't heard about Carl's Jaguar and Al's LP also being stolen. I had one stolen at a gig quite some time back. Damn thieves  Embarrassed

I wonder if the ML skin flute still gets a lot of play  Huh  LOL  Shocked

My apologies if this has been covered before. As a guitar player, I've always been fascinated by the guitar choices in the band. Regarding Carl's Fender Jaguar, it seems as though after about '65/66 he stopped using it live. Around that point he's then seen more with his Rickenbacker and white Telecaster. Then in the early '70s, it's the Epiphones and Gibsons that he stuck with throughout the duration of his career.  Was he ever seen with his Jaguar after that point? I don't think I've seen any photos of him with it after around 1966.  What ever happened to it? Did he sell it? I loved the sound he got with it (though he sounded great regardless of what he was playing).
Something else I've wondered - what was the reason for the switch from Fender to Gibson in the early 70s? Was it to get a more modern (for the time) rock sound? Have any of them ever explained or acknowledged why both Al and Carl, seemingly around the same time, abandoned Fender for Gibson?

Finally, while we're at it, with the exception of the Grammy's (in 2012?), did Al ever bust out a Les Paul after the mid/late '70s? It seems like it was all his white Stratocaster after that.

How do you think your musical development and career would have been different had you and your brothers grown up somewhere other than southern California?
