It’s never quite good vibrations with the Beach Boys, is it?
While Brian Wilson has stated that he’d like to make another album and continue touring with the Beach Boys’ reunion lineup, it seems that’s not really in the cards for the family band.
It’s been a strenuous 2012 for Beach Boys mastermind Brian Wilson, and many have expressed concerns over the 70-year-old’s health as he’s toured the globe with his reunited band.
In recent years particularly, labels like Rhino and Sony Legacy have released more best-of collections and box sets than ever. But how many is too many? If nearly all the compilations are identical in tracklisting, what’s the point?
No one could have guessed that the Beach Boys would make it 50 years, not even founding member, Brian Wilson. “If they’d told me back in the ‘60s that we’d be doing this in 2012 I would’ve said, ‘You’re crazy,’” Wilson said in a statement.
Brian Wilson tips us off about what’s to come, if he has his way: Another new Beach Boys album that “gets the rock’n’roll going,” more tour dates, no more Grammy hullabaloo, and possibly even a Frank Sinatra tribute album.
An Endless Summer may not be in store for the reunited Beach Boys. Amidst hopeful talk of adding tour dates and recording another album comes a report that frontman Mike Love has scheduled his own “Beach Boys” tour dates this October.
Surfers, sunshine and sexy girls – that’s the trifecta of fun presented by the Beach Boys in their new video for “That’s Why God Made The Radio.” It’s not until the last minute of the video that the band actually makes an appearance, at which point its members high-five hip, beachy fans. Watch below.
This week, The Beach Boys returned to the Billboard 200 album chart with their highest debut ever, for their new album That’s Why God Made The Radio. The album came in at No. 3 and sold 61,000 copies in its debut week – enough to make it their highest-charting album since their greatest hits compilation, Endless Summer, reached No. 1 in 1974.
The Beach Boys’ surviving members – Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston and David Marks – joined L.A. sister station K-EARTH 101′s Morning Show with Gary Bryan last week on-air to talk about their new album, That’s Why God Made The Radio, their big reunion tour, and their evolution as a band after 50 years. In the second installment of this multi-part video interview, the Beach Boys address the early years of balancing both touring and recording some of its biggest albums, including 1966′s ground-breaking Pet Sounds.
