Plenty of hate for Love

I didn't even have to read the article to know that it was Mike Love being a douchebag. It's expected that he would be this way. After all, he's been more or less freeloading off of Brian Wilson his entire life while stabbing him in the back every chance he could.

The Beach Boys are dead, and the ones that actually are dead are the lucky ones because they don't have to deal with this shiat anymore.

steamingpile: Wait, WTF? Glen Campbell was in the beach boys? Mind blown.....


Glen Campbell has had a career any musician would be proud to have.

olddeegee: Mike Love is an a**hole. Always has been.



Just recently learning about Mike Love's douchery, and he needs to be punched in the face repeatedly.

Well if your wife was Courtney Love, you'd be a little testy too.

Strongbeerrules: KrispyKritter: oh for the days when a portable transistor radio was the hip electronic thing to have.

I still have a Sony 2R - 31 AM radio. It still works although it makes a lot of static when the volume wheel is turned.

Built them to last back then, I guess. They came out around 1970.


Honest question:

How awesome does baseball sound on that thing?

Campbell also had a decent career as a session musician before he made it big as a solo artist.

He even played on some early Monkees songs.

The guy can play. I didn't realize that until I saw video of his Branson show that I'm too lazy to go dig up right now, but he could play with any one, any day.

mike love is a pretty cool guy, he is an energetic frontman, and he wrote their best song (kokomo). Love also does this cool thing where he invites John Stamos to sit in with the Beach Boys and Stamos is just as talented as Brian Wilson.

Give Mike Love a break, he is just trying to maintain the integrity and legacy of the Beach Boys.

Brian Wilson IS the Beach Boys. Fark Love for screwing his cousin like that.

B.L.Z. Bub: Hollie Maea: The fact that Mike Love has the legal right to fire Brian Wilson from The Beach Boys is perhaps the clearest indication that the justice system is broken.

Uh...why?


Brian Wilson spent most of his adult years either stoned, or nervous brokedown. As much as Mike Love is a Summer's Eve bottle....Brian was so whacked that if he kept the Beach Boys name rights....there would be no Beach Boys, period
 
2012-09-27 01:49:08 AM
I one-thousandth the motion that Mike Love is an asshole. fark him. And fark the fact that he holds the legal right to the name "Beach Boys" and Brian Wilson, the guy who put the Beach Boys in the pantheon of rock n roll doesn't. Wilson should tour with the other sacked members as the "Beach Men" and book their gigs on the same days, in the same towns as Love's Beach Boys.

I thought it was the Wrecking Crew, since Hal Blaine was drummer on the same tracks, but I couldn't remember for certain so I thought it better to not mention it.

That was really cool and totally got me off on another tangent where I found this. The Wrecking Crew Documentary

Mr. Love also maintained that he bought the white shirt with the blue paisleys before Mr. Wilson, despite Wilson's claim that he had owned his shirt for years, and Love just bought his a few weeks ago. Love produced a receipt for the shirt, admitting that he only bought it ten days ago, but said that Wilson had no receipt for his paisley shirt, and therefore Love's ownership of the shirt was confirmed. Love demanded Wilson be ordered to take off the paisley shirt immediately.

Here's a Wiki article on The Wrecking Crew.

It's doesn't seem to be very comprehensive, because the Beach Boys are not mentioned, and I'm certain The Crew was used on a lot of their songs.

Producers used The Wrecking Crew, because studio time was so expensive, and they could pull off a song in one or two takes, whereas the band that would be performing it live, might take 40.

There was no such thing as taking 8 months to record an album back then.
It's just pop music. Approach pretty much any student at GIT, or Berklee Boston, and they can most likely play anything that's on the radio, in their sleep.

Carol Kaye writes often of Phil Spector using 35+ takes on every recording. Not all LA record producers were equal. Of course, Carol also hates The Wrecking Crew name and claims it was invented by Hal Blaine to sell his book in the 1990s. Nearly all of the 1960's LA studio musicians had been touring jazz musicians for years, in big bands and small combos. They could invent parts and hooks in their sleep. Most young musicians think they invented their "new" music.

Once Brian left the touring band, they were basically the recording band for the next few albums. They'd lay down the instrumental tracks and save the vocal tracks for when the rest of the Boys came back to L.A.

FirstNationalBastard: Y'know, I bet that if Brian Wilson were to throw his fellow fired Beach Boys a bone, and go on tour as Brian Wilson and the Wondermints (Featuring Al Jardine and David Marks), they would do a much better concert in much bigger venues than Mike Love's usual Beach Boys county fair tour.


The problem is that there are lots of people out there who aren't clued into who these people are and will go with the "Beach Boys" brand name.

What's sad is that Brian Wilson is clearly a really nice guy who doesn't even care that Mike Love is a complete asshole that has regularly farked him. For him, it's all about playing some music.

In a better, alternate reality, the Beach Boys would have had a guy who sang as well as Mike Love, but who also realised how lucky he was, and when the talented guy in the band got sick, would have tried to help him to get better and been eternally grateful for the opportunities that he got. And Mike Love would have joined some mediocre band, gone nowhere and be working in a gas station.

I'm not generally a hateful person, and I've never met him in person, so I could be wrong, but I do believe that Mike Love is, outside of Jurassic Park, one of the biggest pieces of shiat on the planet. img.photobucket.com

Martstar: Mike Love's voice was just another instrument that Brian Wilson composed for.


This. And Love has never gotten over it. He knows that people will always remember Brian Wilson, but Love's just a "beach boy".
 
2012-09-27 01:51:50 PM
Who cares?

From my experience the only people who enjoy their music tend to do so on friday nights at the local drive through, while standing next to their "hot-rod" with the hood up for all onlookers to see.


Just so happens they are all over 60 years old.

Dennis Wilson drowned back in '83. Alcohol was involved.

I can't really respect the Beach Boys if they can't play their own instruments in the studio. They also seem to have several hundred extra musicians on stage with them.
