Brian Wilson Digs Deep Into Beach Boys Catalogue For New Tour
Brian Wilson and his band are thrilling casual fans and die-hards alike with his cross-section of Beach Boys classics while on tour. Wilson, who's sharing the bill with Jeff Beck and featuring fellow Beach Boys co-founders Al Jardine and David Marks, is digging in deep into the Beach Boys' catalogue, as well as playing the band's best-loved hits. Along with a few Smile favorites, which includes Beck performing with his group, David Marks takes the lead on the mellow 1968 Dennis Wilson Friends nugget, "Little Bird," with Jardine left to rock the house with the band's 1969 20/20 album favorite "Cottonfields." Former Beach Boy Blondie Chaplin is also guesting at select shows and performs his signature song, the Wilson-written "Sail On Sailor."
Brian Wilson told us that among his favorite songs to perform live is the Beach Boys' 1972 Carl And The Passions - So Tough standout, "Marcella." He explained that despite being unable to realize his own song in the studio hasn't prevented him from loving the tune, which his late brother Carl Wilson arranged and produced: "Right, one of my favorites, yeah. Carl did a great job, he was really good. 'Marcella,' y'know, I'm gonna tell ya, I was having mental difficulties during that time and I didn't even know if the guys got in the studio and recorded 'Marcella' without me on it! So, I said, 'I wanna be on it!' So I overdubbed my voice on it."
