You could get 47 Big ones
Actually, if it's as good as "I'm Into Something Good"... why not?

15 Big Ones, that's what you get from a Beach Boys reunion. 32 years later, it could be even worse. In terms of a reunion as a concert act only, I'd much rather see a well done DVD set of some never-seen-before live footage from the seventies and early eighties than these guys actually going on the road as The Beach boys again.

"The thing is, [Brian] was most successful when he collaborated in writing with his cousin Mike. That's me."
Yeah, I guess the last two albums with at least a handful of Brian & Mike compositions (MIU Album and Keepin' The Summer Alive) really proved his point...

From a recent article:
"There isn't anybody I know -- my publicist, my wife, my managers, myself, my current group -- I don't think any of us think there is any hope for a Beach Boys reunion," Wilson says vehemently over the phone from his home in Los Angeles where his neighbours include Robbie Williams, Paul Stanley and Avril Lavigne.

You know, that's the thing with Mike that grates with so many people. He actually said something nice and generous about Brian's post-BB career, even mentioned he has a new album out.....but then can't resist saying that Brian was more successful when he they wrote songs together.
Yeah...but maybe Brian is *happier* now than when he was writing pop songs? Most truly creative writers end up having to either leave bands or undertake side projects just to stay sane.

Mike mentions Al & Brian in this article...here's an excerpt:
Legal strife has plagued the Beach Boys repeatedly. Earlier this year, Love and Jardine settled a five-year battle over the use of the band's name. Love sued Jardine in 2003, saying his former band-mate used the name to advertise concerts even though Love was the sole licensee.
Love says the two are friends today. "There was definitely a schism [between me and Jardine] that lasted a number of years," Love added. "But that's been overcome. The future is wide open."
And what about Brian Wilson? Might he ever rejoin his old bandmates on the concert stage?
"That would be great," Love said without hesitation. "We're not opposed to Brian being a part of it. But he's got his own band. He just came out with a solo album [That Lucky Old Sun]. He's been on the solo artist trail a while. We wish him well. And if it happens, it happens."
And then Love, perhaps smarting over past skirmishes, added: "The thing is, [Brian] was most successful when he collaborated in writing with his cousin Mike. That's me."

And Bob Dylan is a far more respected songwriter than Brian Wilson is.
I have a theory about that. One of the reasons why Bob Dylan is such a respected songwriter is because everybody and their brother have recorded his songs, right? And I don't think that's because his songs were just better than Brian's... I think it has more to do with the fact that his songs are just a lot easier to cover and to make your own.
I think it has much more to do with the fact that he is a brilliant lyricist, and his music documents each generation.

i dont think mike would want to admit if it was a good album or not unless he was on it. i think at that age and the amount of years someone has been in the industry,new albums are looked at as part of the job,not in the enjoyable sence that we listen to them.it woulsd be "ok,this guy is doing this" or "this guy is doing that" mike would probably listen to old stuff and in brians case,mike would have brians album down the bottom of his list of albums to listen to.

We are having a discussion about how fragmentary Smile songs such as Worms might be mixed for presentation on a hypothetical "Smile Box-set". My question is: Do you think it would be possible, with your expertise, to mix the existing 66/67 sessions into a seamless facsimile of BWPS? I'm not sure if you've heard any of the boots that do this (there is a Purple Chick one doing the rounds), but they tend to have awkward spots where the original sessions just don't quite fit the new sequence properly - the transition from Song For Children to Child for example, or the transition from Windchimes into Fire. Given that you have created very seamless mixes of fragmentary Smile songs for the GV Box, and as you worked on BWPS, I thought you might be the best person to answer this question!
Many thanks in advance for any opinions you might have on this.
Good luck on getting an answer to that one.

well....The story made the Deseret News and the school was not happy about it-the band issued an apology
I believed this appearance is mentioned in Brian's "autobiography".

Hey foiks, this is an album-a-day (album written & recorded in a day) that I did a few months back. The production is kinda crappy, but oh well, I had fun. Some of the titles of the songs are not-so-subtle rip-offs of tracks from Smile(y Smile).
