The Beach Boys Co-Founder Gearing Up For A Busy Spring; One Stop Here In NY

Music News

2017 will be yet another busy year for the Beach Boys co-founders with Brian Wilson and Al Jardine picking up the pace of their touring schedule behind the ongoing 50th anniversary trek of the group’s classic Pet Sounds album. Joining the pair once again is ”70s-era member Blondie Chaplin. Mike Love, who controls the license to the Beach Boys’ name will also be putting pedal to the metal with his shows featuring longtime Beach Boy Bruce Johnston.

In April, Showtime will premiere the new special, called Beach Boys: Making Pet Sounds, featuring the surviving original Beach Boys — Wilson, Mike Love, Jardine, and David Marks — along with longtime veteran, Bruce Johnston. Brian Wilson was interviewed by the UK production team at L.A.’s famed Ocean Way studios. The show will feature archival footage and music direct from the album’s legendary session tapes.

Throughout their history, Brian Wilson and Mike Love have always found a way to write together — from their earliest sun-n-fun hot rod hits, through the ’80s — and even on the Beach Boys’ last album, the 2012 Top Three hit, That’s Why God Made The Radio. We asked Love if the way the two cousins collaborated needed to change over the decades: “Well, I don’t think there was (that much of a) difference, because Brian’s nature is quintessentially musical. He could sit down at a keyboard and do some amazing things with chord progressions and harmonies. My deal is hooks, and lyrics and concepts. So, no matter what time period you’re talking about, or what was going on in the mental conditions or the financial conditions of the ebb and flow of the ups and downs of the Beach Boys’ career — it is what it is with Brian and myself. We have so much in common musically and as cousins and compliment each other so well.”
