John Lennon has been dead 32 years. Mike Love looks pretty damn healthy. Proof that we live under the reign of a vile and capricious God.

They had to make room onstage for John Stamos to come back.

Sooooo Brian Wilson's upset with Mike Love for....acting like Mike Love?

Uhhh...Ok.

Considering that Brian Wilson was the only essential member of that group, the rest of them being pretty much interchangeable with any number of other semicompetent musicians, it should be Brian Wilson firing Mike Love, not the other way around.

go on tour with al, brian, as the 'Brian Wilson's Mike Love Is An Ass Boy Band'. Schedule performances in the same city as the faux beach boys and see who walks away smiling. or uses a walker to smile toothlessly away. either is correct.

But who else can go "BAAA BOP BOP BOP BAAA BAAA" like Mike Love?

Nobody, that's who. Maybe a sheep getting clobbered. But no human, that's for sure.

You have to be far more than that to accurately reproduce the beach boys.

Okay, how about "competent in a purely mechanical sense, but creatively uninspired?"

After this performance on Full House, they should just get it over with and rename them John Stamos and the Beach Boys. Guy is amazing.

It's proof that evil people live longer. It makes perfect sense, too. A selfish person will be driven to protect and prolong their life as long as possible.

Mike Love is as misnamed as the city of Liberal, Kansas.

My father told me once that the only people who listened to Beach Boys back in the day were west coast frat boys. Most car guys listened to Eddie Cochran, Chuck Berry, Carl Perkins etc...Also, Bo Diddly sucked. The more you know.

You underestimate the importance of Carl Wilson and Dennis Wilson, especially as parts of the touring configuration.

Mike Love might be my least favorite person on the planet. I really, really despise that man, and I'm not typically a hateful person.
 
2012-10-09 09:41:51 PM
Mike and I share some of the same taste in Rain Spooner Hawaiian shirts, but other than that, he's a waste of human flesh. Brian with his own hand-picked band sounds as good as, or better than, the original Beach Boys lineup, certainly superior to the sad old and busted road show Love is touring with.

I hope before they all die, one of them can explain what a bobberan is.

Mike Love is such a piece of sh*t. People paying money to watch the fake Beach Boys are chumps. A band with only Mike Love calling itself the Beach Boys is like a band with only Marky Ramone calling itself The Ramones.

Shameful.

i'm a little stunned you say that, you knowing music and all. this is the beach boys, not The Ventures.

Probably because they didn't actually play the instruments on their records

His band is The Wondermints. I saw Brian Wilson and the Wondermints in Sydney 2 or 3 years ago and they sounded more like the Beach Boys than the Beach Boys do. Especially when you consider that in the studio the Beach Boys use session musicians, and that the Beach Boys live performances are horrible. Usually because of Mike Love's out of tune vocals. I cannot imagine how they ever got him to sound like he could carry a tune in the studio.

Well I think Mike Love is going for the State Fair crowd as a rule, and those folks are just excited to sit down a bit after eating a fried Twinkie and riding the Tilt-A-Whirl.

That sounds about right.

I apologize for slamming State Fair crowds. Last time I went to one, I watched a man put his entire arm up a cow's vagina to determine if she was ready to give birth. This was in a tent with bleachers and the cow was on stage.

One of the greatest things I've ever seen. Bummer when he said the ol' girl wouldn't be ready for another day or so.

I really don't think Mike Love could follow that act, Lord knows who could...

I hear Love's band does a routine where he asks the drummer to do 'a little drum roll' at the beginning of 'Stay True To Your School', and then Bruce Johnston puts his tongue all the way up Mike's asshole.

I'm afraid you're 100% correct about that.

Especially since Carl had the nicest "live" voice and Dennis provided eye candy for the straight girls and gay guys.

If you ever doubt that Carl had the most vocal talent, consider he sang lead on tunes as varied as "God Only Knows," "Good Vibrations," and "Feel Flows." And like any family, the Wilsons had one sibling who was the peacemaker. That was Carl. If not for him, the band would have broken up long before "Pet Sounds" was recorded and the Beach Boys would be remembered only as a band who did a bunch of pop tunes about surfing and cars.

Mike Love was jealous of how how Dennis's beard made him look super hunky, but Mike's made him look like Chris Elliot in "Cabin Boy".

/and also of Dennis's friendship with Charles Manson, given their mutual interest in sociopathic exploitation of family members.
