Dirty little secret is, most celebrities who have long lasting success are generally highly functional all around high quality people, John Stamos is no exception.  Still cool to see it acknowledged in public, though.

That's a very nice thing he did there. Doesn't change my opinion of Stamos as a person, since I don't have one. I don't know the man personally. It also does not change my opinion that he's not a Beach Boy.

Just saw JS on Jimmy Kimmel and he was asked if he's going to tour with BB this Summer. He said " I just finished 20 concerts with them and will rejoin them in about a week."
 He's not going away anytime soon.

"We had Kokomo, which was a big hit down here". Course, he says this on tv, drunk as a skunk.

Nobody is perfect. It's all about the legacy. Stamos might be a great guy but you don't see the Stones letting some 80's TV star joining them on stage regularly.

On the M&B oldies tour, Stamos is a great draw. I'm sure the casino crowd are thrilled to see him. And the babes love him so he is nice to have around   Wink Wink Wink.

I dunno ... The Stones did cart John Mayer around on their most recent tour!

In fact, they played The Echoplex in Echo Park, which is like THE hippest place in Los Angeles. This is a place where the cream of the crop of local bands play regularly. You could throw the smallest stone (no pun) in any direction and it would hit someone in a very cool band on the up and up, most all of whom clamored to  get into the Stones gig! So, they play the Echoplex, and who do they wheel out as their big guest? Keith Urban!!!!!  ...... That's a much bigger clueless f*ck you to their fans than anything Mike could ever dream of doing!

C'mon Pinder. You are equating Mayer and Urban with Stamos. Those guys are real, professional musicians, not TV stars.

Ironically, from TMZ today:Manson became enraged and the story goes ... the real target the night of the Tate murders was Melcher.

Melcher -- the son of Doris Day -- had rented the Tate house with then girlfriend Candice Bergen but moved weeks before the murders.  

Dear lord, does anyone still believe this nonsense. I know it's TMZ but even so...

Yeah, I mean, I for one was impressed with the level of believability they created back in 2012 when they apparently created that video of Johnston calling Obama an a-hole completely from scratch using CGI.   LOL

Not saying he's not a nice guy, just not a good drummer. Can he play drums better than me? Yes. Can he play drums well enough to be in a band that charges $100+ a ticket? No.
The shows that I have seen, he only played drums on Be True To Your School. One out 32 songs even if played badly is not gonna make me ask for my money back. Kind of being nit-picky and looking, searching, longing for a reason to complain.

The shows I've seen, including the first night of the Beacon on the reunion tour, he's played drums on a good chunk of the set. I'm not being nitpicky, I don't dislike John Stamos. I just don't think he's a good drummer and I've seen him play drums on way more than just one song.

Keith Urban is also one hell of a nice guy........ he has not changed into a snob with success.......

I met him in 1992 when he was a support artist for Aussie's 'Slim Dusty'........ he was so kind, pleasant, and great to talk to,

and took time out to talk to me......

I caught up with him again a few years ago, and he was exactly the same...... his handlers were trying to move him on however, but!

Keith stayed and signed, let us take photos and chat a little.......

A great guitar player, and hell of a nice dude!

Not for a good, professional drummer. Mike D'Amico sounded great during C50 on drums (and now with Brian), and he was the "bass player" in that band.

I've searched high and low and can't find the interview David Marks gave circa 2000 or so where he discussed specifically Stamos' musicianship. He basically said what some of us here have said and have noticed; Stamos isn't that great because it's not his profession. He knows enough to "get by." He doesn't practice or hone the craft at all. There's nothing wrong with that.... until you get on stage in front of a paying audience.

Yes, some in the audience aren't at all discerning when it comes to musicianship, but those are the same fans that wouldn't notice or care if Papa Doo Run Run got on stage and called it "The Beach Boys."

I gotta agree.  John Mayer and Keith Urban *shudder

Both of those guys, I've got to say, I just can't stand.  Not because they've done anything wrong, it's just you know how sometimes you irrationally hate people?  Those are a couple of people I just irrationally hate, I'm a little ashamed about it but they're both millionaires so it's all good. 

Strangely though, i've never felt that way about Stamos.

I, I love the colorful clothes she wears, and she's already working on my brain. I only looked in her eyes, but I picked up something I just can't explain. I, I bet I know what shes like, and I can feel how right shed be for me. Its weird how she comes in so strong, and I wonder what shes picking up from me. I hope its good, good, good, good vibrations, yeah!!
