Say it ain't so Mike. The Beach Boys WITHOUT Brian Wilson and Al Jardine????????????????
Dude- what have you been smoking? There are only three of the orignal Beach Boys left-and you've just fired two of them? And one of them just happens to be BrianWilson, the heart soul and musical genius who is the creative force that made the Beach Boys into the pop phenomenon they were.
Mike Love, who holds the legal rights to the Beach Boys name, fired Brian Wilson, Al Jardine and David Marks on Sunday, while they are still on tour in England, celebrating their 50th anniversary.
Love claimed he doesn't want the band to get 'over exposed.' What he really wants is to continue playing as the Beach Boys along with his son Christian and long time band member Bruce Johnston, and keep the profits from tours and the fans memories of the music- most of which was written by Brian Wilson, for himself. Cutting the others out will make his share greater.
Nice going, Mike.
