Would It Be Nice?
Rumors started swirling again last week about the Beach Boys possibly reuniting next year in celebration of their….yikes…. 50th anniversary. Every so often the topic heats up on the rumor mill but then very quickly fizzes out. Our crew has worked pretty closely with the boys, in particular Brian Wilson, and we have no reunion confirmation despite Al Jardine’s wishful statement. Maybe it’s best to leave well enough alone? We met up with with them a couple of years ago to talk about the career retrospective record The Warmth of the Sun and put together this video podcast. If summer just ain’t summer without these California guys, then here’s another chance for you to catch the wave…at least until the next reunion…..or not. And as luck would have it….just as I write this, KCRW’s Eclectic 24 is playing “Hushabye” ……may the gods of summer speak!
