the beach boys
With the Beach Boys’ 50th anniversary tour firmly in the rear-view mirror of their little deuce coupe – and Mike Love effectively ditching his bandmates on the side of the road to drive off on his own – what is a Beach Boys fan to do in 2013?
For years, a biopic based on the troubled and triumphant life of the Beach Boys’ creative mastermind, Brian Wilson, has been in the works. Now the film, titled Love & Mercy, is charging full speed ahead, casting actor Paul Dano in the role of young Wilson, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The theme of this year’s nominations could be taken in a number of ways, but when you look at the contenders up for all-powerful Album of the Year category, one thing is certain: it’s the year of the underdogs and the newcomers.
The new DVD, titled The Beach Boys Live In Concert – 50th Anniversary Tour, features hours of concert footage including tons of the band’s hit songs, album cuts and even some new ones – plus interviews with the boys and much more. Brian Wilson is quoted in the trailer, saying how happy he is that this concert was captured on film “so that everyone, whether you were there or not, will be able to see what an historical event it was.”
These brothers made beautiful music together but also hated each other’s guts.
Mike Love is fighting back against those have vilified him with claims that he fired original Beach Boys members Brian Wilson, Al Jardine and David Marks. Love has penned a lengthy, pointed and emotional open letter to the Los Angeles Times in an attempt to set the record straight.
In the wake of Love coldly giving the boot to his bandmates, we have to wonder: Is Mike Love the biggest villain in the music world? We explore Love’s legacy of indiscretions and less-than-favorable attributes that suggest as much.
In an exclusive premiere, the Beach Boys share a new version of “Isn’t It Time,” which is jam-packed with even more harmonizing goodness.
