I've never used the word 'squaresville' in my 41 years on this Earth, but it's the only word to describe the audience for this sh*t-show. Take the worst, most milquetoast elements from a Jimmy Buffett concert -- Hawaiian shirt-wearing, congo-line dancing, Jose Cuervo-loving f*ckfaces -- and multiply that group of f*ckfaces like a virus until it fills the Vegas MGM for 10 nights in a row. It says "Beach Boys" in the moniker, so that's all that matters. These people lap up marketing like the syrup in their yard-drink. Oh man! John Stamos is riding a surfboard hoisted up by roadies across the stage during Surfin' U.S.A.! Awesome!

Hasn't Stamos been friends with them for years? Probably why the Beach Boys guest starred on Full House so many times.

I love the old picture of a mulleted Stamos they used in TFA.

Met Stamos a few weeks ago at Disney . He was with a smoking hot girl in her 20s that I thought may be his daughter but according to the googles, he has no kids.

Super nice guy. Aged pretty well.

You have to admit - in an industry known for dickishness, he should get some kind of award for consistent above-the-call-of-duty  dickish behavior over the decades. It seems like a year doesn't go by that he doesn't do something that makes you wonder why he doesn't retire and enjoy life on a big pile of money - unless he just simply enjoys being a dick.

Stamos played with the Beach Boys when I saw them at Candlestick Park after a Giants game back in the 80's.

If you put him together in a locked room with Don Henley, the resulting critical mass of assholism could send Chris Hadfield to Mars in 20 minutes.

Well let's take a better look at our candidate

Untalented - easily the worst singer to appear on more than one top ten record, can barely fake strumming chords on a guitar with his own songs despite having had 40 years to try and learn them.
Arrogant - has never written a damn thing worthwhile, Brian did all of that
Sell out - more than willing to continue to make money off of suckers year after year playing crappy versions of songs he cannot sing without studio overdubbing

No argument here.  But the most compelling case against Mike Love is that he seemingly acts out of sheer malice, but malice toward whom? Brian is out of the picture in terms of the Beach Boys band, I think he wisely gave up on that 20 years ago and contents himself with the occasional producing job (and hefty checks). It was long rumored that Mike was jealous of Dennis, who had girls by the dozen, but Dennis is long dead. Carl? Also six feet under; but, hell, Carl was a nice guy by all accounts who tried to mediate the many disputes between Mike and the rest of the band. Murry Wilson, who hated Mike and had that emotion returned in spades, died ages ago.

So why does Mike carry on, engaging in endless legal fights with former band members over the use of the name "Beach Boys," playing treadmill shows at backwoods fairs and roadside attractions? Beats me. If I were him, I'd be sitting on the deck of my place in Malibu, encouraging some Cute Young Thing to take off her top for a better tan.

But he doesn't take the hint so we are only left to surmise that he truly enjoys being a dick.

I don't know, what about those dickbags from CCR who sued John Fogerty for plagiarizing himself (and won)? That's pretty epic douchebaggery right there.

I thought that was his label.

/fun fact: in looking over his wikipedia entry for something about that (which I failed to find), I stumbled across this gem...:
During one of the Tampa Bay Rays post game concerts, Fogerty performed with John Stamos.
//and the cycle of douchebaggery continues

It was the label, specifically Saul Zaentz, whose dickery was immortalized in the Fogerty song Zanz Kant Danz, which was changed to Vanz Kant Danz due to threats of another lawsuit.

B-b-but he came up with the lyric "I'm picking up good vibrations / She's giving me excitations!"
As he makes a point of mentioning whenever given an opportunity to speak.

As to why Mike Love doesn't just retire somewhere and leave the us alone: he probably hasn't been responsible enough with money to be able to.

Heh - I heard that on internet radio the other day and LOLed. Haven't heard it for a while.

As for the CCR story, that's a tough one. There's WAY too much "he said/she said" crap to figure out who was being the biggest dick in a bowlful of dicks. Everyone involved has to take a piece of that rap. The lawsuits and counter suits in that debacle go on endlessly. However, I have to give the "biggest dick" nod to John for two reasons: forbidding Doug and Stu from even standing on the stage with him at the Hall of Fame ceremony (a stage he then shared with Robbie Robertson, speaking of dicks) and then suing the pair over the name of their band, Creedence Clearwater Revisited - a suit that he lost.

But, he must grind his teeth every time he hears "Fortunate Son" misused by people who haven't actually read the lyrics. But I assume Springsteen feels the same way about "Born in the USA."

In the case of Fogerty being sued for plagiarizing himself, Zaentz was the sole dick.

In everything else CCR-related, Fogerty usually comes out on top as King Dick.

Oh, and if you ever want to hear what is essentially a CCR Record, only with a better singer...
