All this talk about a Beach Boys 50th anniversary reunion is just that…talk. Singer Mike Love told Billboard that "there have been a lot of ideas floated, but nothing decided. So far it's just conversation. There are no big plans yet -- although there's a lot of interest from a lot of people to see what would happen if we got together and did some new music and maybe did some shows. But so far nothing's firm." I am sure this will change a million times before the actual anniversary, but one can only hope that the Boys get it together –especially Brian Wilson- to do something special to celebrate their half-century legacy.
"I've had a few conversations recently with my cousin Brian ... about doing some musical projects together," added Love, the original member currently active with the band. "But we're busy touring, he's busy recording and doing some dates, so in the Fall we'll get more focused on it." Former member and co-founder Al Jardine recently suggested that Wilson, Bruce Johnston and David Marks would reunite in 2011 for at least one reunion gig.
Would you be super stoked for a Beach Boys reunion? Or is Wilson just too batshit crazy to make it happen? The guy is a genius and all geniuses are a bit nutty.
