Brian, Mike, Dave, Al & Bruce!!!

Brian, Mike, Dave, Al, & Bruce!!!
Posted on June 9, 2006 at 12:31:34 PM by Namby

They said it would never happen; but all five surviving Beach Boys --
co-founders Brian Wilson, Mike Love, David Marks and Al Jardine, along
with longtime member Bruce Johnston -- will appear together on Tuesday
(June 13th), on the rooftop of Capitol Records' Los Angeles
headquarters. Co-founders Dennis and Carl Wilson died in 1983 and
1998, respectively.

The event, which commemorates the sales of over two million copies of
the group's hits compilation Sounds Of Summer: The Very Best Of The
Beach Boys, will mark the first time Wilson, Love, Jardine and
Johnston have appeared in public together in nearly a decade. In
addition to the group being awarded their platinum albums, Capitol
Records will be unveiling the artwork for a commemorative Beach Boys
anniversary CD and vinyl titles to be released later this year.

In a LAUNCH exclusive, Al Jardine said that the group has been amazed
by the album's unstoppable success: "We've been delighted and
surprised in the weekly sales figures and they're beyond
comprehension -- and they're showing no sign of slowing down!"

Jardine said that being with the guys on their old stomping grounds
just might be the thing needed to get them all to finally commit to
reforming: "We're going back to our roots. It is a reunion. It's a
beautiful thing."

When asked if the awards-ceremony would be a dry-run for a full scale
musical reunion Jardine said, "I sure hope so. The only reason we're
here is because we're sharing the music and love... And then the
lawyers came. An impressive offer (for a reunion) has been made. We
just need to sit down and agree to do it -- or not to. But that's what
we've already been doing (laughs)."

Founding Beach Boy David Marks told LAUNCH that the group's records
will never fall out of fashion: ["The Beach Boys actually symbolize a
happier time. People are drawn to it -- and continually drawn back to
it, because mainly people wanna feel good, and the music is just feel-
good music, what can I say? And it reminds everyone of happier times
too." SOUNDCUE (:16 OC:. . . happier times too)

Beach Boys historian Jon Stebbins told LAUNCH that, "It's nice to know
that David Marks is finally getting acknowledged for the hit records
he contributed to. Let's hope this type of goodwill is a signal that
Dennis Wilson's great unreleased music will finally see the light of
day."

Stebbins long awaited biography on Marks, titled The Lost Beach Boy is
due out later this year. In 2000, Stebbins published the definitive
biography on Dennis Wilson, titled The Real Beach Boy.

We have to see this.  I sure hope it will be filmed and broadcast or somehow distributed to the public.

I will be in California.....but not until the 14th DAMN IT.  I would find some way to get there if I could.

A lot of money offered.  I guess that is one thing they can finally all agree on.

I wonder who put together the offer.

Wow, this happened really quickly - next Tuesday already - or they kept it really quiet.

This doesn't sound like an important reason to reunite (celebrating the success of a greatest hits repackage), but I'll take it. I'd love to see the guys reunite.

I hope everyone can make it on such short notice; that they don't have to work (a concert), or have a recording session scheduled to overdub some dit-dits...

Yeah, it's NOT a very good reason to reunite... which means (in my opinion) that they must just be looking for an excuse to reunite.

You don't think the fact that the Beach Boys are still able to move 2 million records 45 years on is a pretty big deal?

What would be awesome is if Brian landed on Spector, breaking his fall and killing Phil instantly. Poetic justice. No, LITERAL justice.

Part of me would cheer and feel vindicated for the family of Lana Clarkson. Part of me would be horrified because I don't ever feel good when someone dies.


edit   Goddammit I meant Lana not Kelly.....

That's not the issue. Do I think moving 2 million records 45 years on is a pretty big deal. Yes, I do.

Do I think it's an important reason for The Beach Boys to "reunite"? No, I don't.

I would've hoped other reasons would've produced the reunion - recording, touring, the desire to heal some old wounds, etc. I never considered celebrating a greatest hits package one of them. Other than Mike, I didn't think the guys were too fond of the Endless Spirit Of Golden Summer Greatest Hits And Sounds albums. Of course, they were probably fond of the royalties.

But don't ignore my last sentence in the above quote. I'd love to see a reunion, any type of reunion.

I think at this point, they need an excuse to spend time with each other.  Even if they wanted to spend time with each other, that's hard thing to initiate after so many years of difficulty.

Yes! That's what I was hinting at.  2 million records does not mean that they have to reunite.  There doesn't have to be an award ceremony.  They don't all have to be there... they certainly don't show up together for other ceremonies and things.... but they're at the point where they're looking for an excuse to get together.  Al clearly is at the point where he just wants to drop everything and forget the problems, Bruce I see as pretty much an innocent bystander at this point, David's finally getting a little recognition, but Brian and Mike are the two egos, I hope the two of them are ready to play nice.  Or maybe they already do and we just don't know them very well.

The skeptic in me thinks that somehow, Melinda will have the final say in determining if and when Brian can go out to play...
