I’m writing a book of online BB fandom. It’s called “Never Trust Anyone Who Spends More Time Reading Signatures Than Bathing”.  It’s sure to sell a million copies in January!

How’s that view from the nosebleed seats?

Billy you are right no slurring or anything. I think the slurring begain about 1986 and got worse in 1991

This is indeed rather strong evidence that the slurring started later on. However, I think this tape is running way too fast. So while Brian does sound very energetic and is not slurring, I think his voice probably didn't sound quite that high-pitched in 1981. He sounds like his 18 year old voice there, and other examples I've heard of his voice circa 1981 have his voice a bit deeper than that.

I was thinking the same thing. Everybody sounds kinda whiny.

Brian sounds really good. He doesn't sound crazy. He sounds like he did in the 60's. But I guess yall are probably right with the pitch thing. Even if his voice was lower, he seemed to have a good spirit.

Great interview!  There's one part I can't seem to make out however... It occurs at 6:27 into the interview when Brian is discussing the songs that will appear on the (ultimately) unreleased *New Beach Boys Album*:


FAN: "Loop de Loop", is that coming out soon?

BRIAN: No that's not coming out.

FAN: unintelligable

BRIAN: No we decided not to get into that.  That's too, too... It's not good enough.  We wanted something that's good out there.  We want good product.

FAN: unintelligable

BRIAN: Yeah, unintelligable sounds real good!  They play...

FAN: unintelligable


Can anyone fill in the missing blanks here?

Haha, that seems to make sense anyway.
