Well, according to Mike there is hope for you guys.
How will these shows differ from your Beach Boys shows? What do you think the set list will be like? From what I understand, from a few of the promoters and venues that want us, they want to hear a lot of hits. But I think stuff from the Pet Sounds album and Smile will undoubtedly be included. It will be a comprehensive thing. We're going to try and be as inclusive of all the eras of the Beach Boys music as representatives of our catalogues because I know there are some people that are into one phase or another of our career, so we'll try to do what we can to incorporate everybody's wish list. That would be tough to do unless we did a week at Carnegie Hall. We've got hundreds of songs.
I tell ya I loved that Hall of Fame video. Instead of thanking the hall Mike insults as much rock royalty as possible. He's always been a train wreck so wny should that nite have been any different. It was really a different time back then and for better or worse he's a character that we all wanted to see. Just to see what he was gonna do or say next next. Kinda like a car crash sometimes ya gotta go back and see it again and again. But you have to admit it was probably the most memorable Hall speech ever. He certainly had everyones attention. And Elton at the end was classic.
The Beach Boys were the central theme of my dream last night. Brian Wilson wouldn't sing. He could sing, we discovered, so he hadn't lost his voice, he was just refusing to do so. I was right in front of the stage and there were like 40 other people there. When they started up the first song (no idea what it was), I burst into tears.
But don't worry, GL, you were one of the 40 people in attendance

I just kind of figured that with Brian back in the fold they'd avoid playing crap from their Country Fair era and try to just remind people that at one time they were looked at as the only band that could potentially rival the Beatles.
Or hey, Aruba, Jamaica, ooh I wanna take ya. It's all the same, really.
