DontBeSoDigital: Love the Beach Boys music. More specifically, Brian Wilson's music. Pet Sounds is my favorite album of all time - it's flawless to me; it is musical perfection.I saw Brian Wilson perform a year ago and his backing band was absolutely outstanding. Wilson looked a little out of it, but I expected that anyways. He sounded good and it was a very memorable show.I skipped out on this 50th Anniversary Tour though and I've never given a dime to Mike Love's bastardization of "The Beach Boys." He is the absolute worst.
kroonermanblack: Could anyone explain wtf is going on in this thread? Beach Boys...hate? I don't understand...Born in 83 so way before my time, and the BB were always just that nice sounding band in the background a few times.And anyone recommend any of their songs to learn to play? Something fun to play, and medium difficulty?

I don't understand...Born in 83 so way before my time, and the BB were always just that nice sounding band in the background a few times.Brian Wilson, the main composer for the Beach Boys in their original incarnation, was easily the equal of Lennon/McCartney in terms of raw musical ability. However, his career was derailed by serious mental problems beginning in the late 1960s. The band was subsequently taken over by vastly less talented people, which is why we don't hear many post-1970ish Beach Boys songs on the radio other than 'Kokomo.' Don't know if it's still in print, but the book 'Heroes and Villains' is a great biography./Born in 73 and I can still remember my father playing 'In My Room' on the stereo when I was a toddler -- that song is a farking masterpiece
E_Henry_Thripshaws_Disease: Come on, Brian Wilson is overrated. All of their albums before Pet Sounds consisted of about 50% filler that was pure crap! If Mike Love is so bad, why is he co-credited on most of their hits?
Snapper Carr: Not sure why I linked to the song's wikipedia page.actual song
Ebenator: [img.photobucket.com image 300x300]Seriously depressing book.Also, fark Mike Love. He's the worst.
hbk72777: P.S., See how useless Mike Love is in that video
peewinkle: He lived in a tent next to his pool for a year living on candy bars and masturbation.
