"Beach Boys" owner, Mike Love, fires Brian Wilson?

Postby (beatbyrd) » Thu Sep 27, 2012 10:51 pm

Haven't you done enough over the years, Mike?

Looks like original founding members Brian Wilson, Al Jardine, and David Marks outlived their usefulness after the reunion tour. Thanks guys, it was fun, fun, fun!

Gotta love them show bidness wackos.

Stuff like this just hits me in the gut. I'm sure the dynamics are way more complex than meets the...ear, but still.

The three ought to go out on tour without Love and have as much fun as they want. Boys from the Beach.

..very sad...

Don't know if this can be accessed by listeners outside the UK, but if so, and on a happier note, here's a link to the concert recorded and broadcast by the BBC this week:

Ironically, I heard about this a week ago. I'm in a band that plays with these guys and he told me about it. There's much more to the story.

Mike Love: "You’ve got to be careful not to get overexposed."

Watch out for that getting old business, Mike.

The effects can be worse than overexposure. :mrgreen:

Mike Love's surname is the biggest irony in the bizniz. Unless you use it in the same sentence as "money".

He's a sad excuse for a Beach Boy; always was as far as I'm concerned.

I saw the BBs in Tempe back in the 70s (they were terrible, people were walking out) and the next day Love was arrested in a motel in Tucson with a 16-year-old. Those were the days....
