I'm on board for probably most if not all of Reiner's politics. Sean Hannity shouldn't be anywhere near a BB event, and never would thankfully.


Could you imagine that? Hannity calling none of the Boys ever playing on any of their records and Mike writing all the songs a proven fact? I can see a version of "Our cartoon president"'s Hannity having the BBs as guests, though  LOL

There's nothing else to say - LOL

But Reiner hosting this event is actually quite a bit like Ron Howard's work on the Beatles "Eight Days a Week" film: Bland, inoffensive, and someone who can get the job done without any hiccups.

Leaving his politics 100% to one side I don't think this is entirely fair. Howard's knowledge of, and relationship with, The Beatles is nothing like Reiner's with the BBs. While Reiner dominated the intro he then settled very, very well into the interview and used his knowledge to augment the band's answers. It was pretty impressively done and I'd love to hear him interview them again.

While Reiner dominated the intro he then settled very, very well into the interview and used his knowledge to augment the band's answers. It was pretty impressively done and I'd love to hear him interview them again.

Reiner's work on the Q&A was pretty darn similar to how I'd characterize Howard's work on the Beatles film. Professional, competent, and with an eye towards general, non-fan and casual-fan audiences. In both cases, a deep, intricate familiarity on the part of Reiner or Howard, or the audiences for those projects, was not needed.

In both cases, there was some pretty clichťd, sort of filler commentary. Objectively, it was a bit odd to refer to "the genius, Brian Wilson." As I've said, I'm firmly of the belief that if such a thing as a genius exists, Brian is one. But the way Reiner introduced Brian sounded kind of like introducing George Harrison at an event as "the quiet Beatle." Brian's super broad-stroke, one-word encapsulation as "the genius" may be on its face more flattering than others that one might get (e.g. calling Mike "the TM guy" or something), but it's just as overly-simplistic and I'd argue kind of weirdly patronizing.

But I'm just nitpicking. Reiner was fine, and as I've probably already said, you kind of need a mainstream sort of "Larry King" format for such a show.

But I do think there are a small number of people who fit all the bills Reiner did, if not more so, such as knowing all the members, being trusted by all the members, knowing how to moderate an event, knowing how to interview, and knowing how to make the event for a "wide" audience, but yet are also well-versed experts. Howie Edelson and Alan Boyd would be two obvious examples.

Oh thank goodness! I have SiriusXM now, but didnít at the time and I have been waiting years to hear this. I read a transcript at one point, but Iíve always wanted to hear the boyís voices. I just spent an hour in heaven hearing a ďnew to meĒ interview with The Beach Boys, at this point itís a once in a lifetime opportunity. I wish a four hour uninterrupted interview could be done to capture all these guys stories before theyíre gone. Hell, I could listen to Al, Mike, Brian and Dave just talk about 1962 for four hours let alone the rest of the epic tale.

Hopefully there will be some type of video uploaded to youtube, either professionally filmed, or fan filmed.

I won't be listening to this as  I live in the UK ,  the band are what we call in the UK 'past their sell by date' they were great back in the 60s but now things have changed, we have COVID 19 to deal with, which makes me wonder why on earth are they doing concerts when this pandemic is still around? as one health expert here in the UK said 'COVID likes crowds'   even if they are sitting in  cars, there will be times when people will interact, and that's when the problems start. Here in the UK not many outdoors music gigs are taking place ( Glastonbury  is one of them).  Its a shame, we've had nearly 2 years of restrictions and it will be some time before any kind of  normality will return.

I won't be  listening to this as I live in the UK. In my view the band are what we call in the UK 'past their sell by date' they were great in  the 60s, but now with COVID 19  to contend with things are not the same. Glastonbury won't be taking place  this year, the same goes for a local  music event where I live and yet the BB are doing concerts in the open air, although people are sitting in  their cars  and social distancing is being implemented , what about the band? have they been vaccinated? I doubt if Mike has. As one health expert here in the UK said 'COVID likes crowds. In my view its time to call it a day BB, but it'll  take some convincing for them to do that!!

I hate to break it to you, but youíre responding to two different things at once. This SiriusXM reunion was 3 years ago - for the first stint of the limited edition SiriusXM channel. The channel is back, but there are no new reunions scheduled for it. While itís you that Mike and Bruce (and now Brian, Al, and Blondie starting later this month) are still performing while possible, and I do agree with you that itís not safe enough for concerts yet, these are two separate discussion topics. Mike and Bruce donít care about case numbers and will play even if they dropped dead on stage. Brian, Al, and Blondie Iím surprised about because if their ages and the pandemic; not that M&B arenít up there too, but we know how that will turn out.
