Al did acknowledge my KEEP IT CLEAN.. shirt. Grin
Al's really lucky his last name rhymes with the slogan. Cool news! Should've given Al distant high-5. 3D
I gave him a thumbs-up. Grin

Anyone know why Nelson is not on this tour, and who is taking his place on percussion?  Sorry if I missed the discussion

Guy named Jim Lasesa who knows Darian and the other band guys well. Heís on Facebook. Nelson isnít on FB anymore; no idea what happened to him.
Yeah, he's still playing his own shows though. He's doing his thing.

PS. It's Jim Laspesa Grin

I finally, FINALLY, ordered my KEEP IT CLEAN WITH AL JARDINE shirt for the Berlin show on August 16th. All thanks to Quzi's design way back in 2012!  Love



What would I give to talk to Al while wearing a "Keep it clean with Al Jardine"-shirt!!  Grin
If it wasn't for my mother's birthday, I might had had the chance this year in Berlin, as Blondie and I have common friends and maybe I could've met some of the guys.  Sad 
It's a shame you're not gonna be there! If I get a reaction from Al (sitting front row!) you'll be the first to know!  Cheesy

So excited for the Berlin show in 10 days......  Cool Last year's stellar Frankfurt gig might have been the best Brian & band show I've ever seen. I'm just a little sad I missed Darian with The Zombies last week in Berlin.  Embarrassed  He's with Brian on the Europe leg of the tour though, right?

Who else is gonna be there? I'm taking my mother and brother, who are already ecstatic, having never heard Brian's music live.  Cheesy

More originals with guest artists, more Gershwin or finally the rock and roll album - I don't care. As long as there is more Brian Wilson in the world. Bring it on.

Wonderful film... this generation's BULLET... this is a film that will be talked about for years to come.

The use of Let's Go Away was both perfect and smart... they could not have picked a better placement location - using the song to start off an important story arc.
Sounds great! Smiley Can't wait to see it!
10  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian Wilson - 2017 Tour Thread (Pet Sounds - The Final Performances) on: July 19, 2017, 12:52:43 AM
Off to Frankfurt now  Rock! Rock! Rock!

Looking forward to rare cuts during soundcheck.  3D

If anyone there wants to look me up, I'm parking in row #6, seat #14.

Let's do this!!

He has been talking about that rock 'n' roll album again.. Maybe the recent passing of Chuck Berry (and others) has given him new drive or inspiration?

Every single SmileySmiler should check out Jens Lekman's latest record  3D

Just did. I'm sure it's very good of its kind but it's not for me. Perhaps the words are too important. I did my best----sorry!
Hey, that's okay Smiley "Thanks" for trying! Smiley

Anyone going to the FRankfurt show on July 19th? 3D

I am. After much procrastination and checking out flight options for nearly every other date I finally booked it on Sunday.
Cool. Where are you from? Maybe we'll have time for a beer (or two) before/after the show.

Looking forward to the film!

Enjoy the show, Lowbacca. They do a great show !
Thanks  Cheesy

Well, it's been a couple of weeks since the Mike's Boys' Berlin show.. Shocked Busy schedule so I didn't have time to pop in and give my two cents.

It was my first time with this configuration of the BBs, and I was pretty much at the front, right next to the stage. Damn expensive, too.

Overall I enjoyed most of it, and I got my money's worth. I think. These guys are workhorses and war horses. And, once in a while, kitsch clowns.

The star is still the music. Even though Stamos tried his best to make it about him and Mike every chance he got. Well, I knew he would. (No mention of Brian whatsoever, either. I thought that was weird. Is that 'normal'? Both Carl and Dennis got shout-outs.)

It's Germany so "Kokomo", "California Dreamin'" and "Barbara Ann" got the biggest responses. I enjoyed all the Wild Honey tracks, everything with promiment Scott Totten vocals as well as the a capella "Their Hearts Were Full of Spring" (Bruce sounded fantastic).

It was a nice night, with the best music in the universe played by capable musicians in a tight band. Having said that, I guess that's for me with Mike's Boys. Been there, done that. At least at these horrendous ticket prices.

____

Off to see Brian next, in a couple of weeks. Love

"Brandy (You're A Fine Girl)" by Looking Glas, mainly due to its brilliant use in Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol.2. Been stuck in my head ever since.

Hey y'all. Cheesy Gonna give Mike and the Boys a chance with the Berlin concert Thursday night (as I've never seen this incarnation of the band live). Brow
Anyone else gonna be there?

These being the last days before the beginning of spring, I've dedusted NPP and actually rediscovered this album.

Such a breath of fresh air.

I guess late/mid-March is "The Right Time" to have do this. Cool Who's with me?
