For the record, I'm all talk and girlie swagger. I'm sure I'll still go if they come around here.

I'll just be sure to reserve my bathroom break for Kokomo.

Because the fact that one of America's most influential bands will be performing live for the first time in decades wasn't quite exciting enough on its own: Beach Boys To Reunite At Grammys… With Foster The People & Maroon 5 - Stereogum

Pity about the Maroon 5 part.

Man, that's weak.

Foster The People suck, too.

Dear Mom,

Brian Wilson released his third solo album today! No, it wasn't Pet Sounds, or anywhere in the ballpark...but uh, yeah, he's trying. Didn't let craziness get him down or nothing. Ugh, I don't know why I wrote this. Fuck. Darn.

Love,

Your son
Reuniting with the Beach Boys might be a tad more interesting for him than making solo music.

I've been brushing up on my Beach Boys history lately and have been watching some old 70's and 80's interviews with Brian Wilson on Youtube. Pretty fascinating stuff. The drug use of the early 70's really had a negative influence, and he seems to be on drugs during most of the interviews (at least in the 70's). There's a really sad performance of 'Good Vibrations' from Brian on SNL circa 1976-77. Also learned brother Dennis was heavily involved with Charles Manson and the Manson family, including letting them live at his Malibu mansion for a time.

It seems there is a general hatred for Mike Love on the internet. I guess he has sued Brian for writing credits on some of their early hits. Interesting that NBA All-Star, Kevin Love, is his nephew.


I also learned a bit of U2 trivia: Brian's writing partner on the infamous Smile album in 1966, Van Dyke Parks, later went on to compose the strings part on "All I Want Is You".

I hope they gave refunds.

Nick Kent's 'The Dark Stuff' is a must read regarding Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys. Truly a fucked up, pathetic and ultimately tragic set up. Van Dyke Parks was also a nutjob.

I saw some dates on Ticketmaster, but it appears that like other acts, CA is the only state on the west coast.

So maybe I won't have to hem and haw about whether or not I should go.

This was my initial snarky response, but you beat me to it.

On that note, a random thought: I'd love it so much if Animal Collective covered a Beach Boys album (SMiLE or Pet Sounds). It would be ridiculously good.

What about The Flaming Lips? It would probably only take a tweet to Wayne Coyne to get it off the ground...
