Beach Boys Update

Beach Boys and Brian Wilson Reunite for Tour: Here’s a holiday gift you, your dad, and Panda Bear can get excited about: Brian Wilson is reuniting with the Beach Boys — who, let’s face it, were never really the Beach Boys without him. The band, which will now consist of Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, David Marks, and Bruce Johnston, plans to embark upon a 50-date tour, beginning with April’s New Orleans Jazz Fest. The news comes about six weeks after the release of The Smile Sessions, roughly 45 years after the legendary lost Beach Boys album was recorded.

Wow, David Marks? That's funny since he's previously been virtually written out of the official Beach Boys history. His autobiography seems interesting:

But damn, once upon a time they were awesome. This is from the T.A.M.I. show in '64. The entire show is available on DVD and yes Bill, you want it.

Got it a year or so ago. Great stuff!

I should have guessed you already had it. Btw, it really made me re-evaluate Lesley Gore. Holy mackerel, the girl really could sing.

Indeed, and what great hair! Those were the days.
