Speaking of classic rockers, saw The Beach Boys, (or what's left of them), on Good Morning America this morning. Big dissapointment. But I'm not surprised. The ONLY members left from the 60s are Mike Love and Bruce Johnston. I thought AT LEAST Al Jardine would be there, but no! Where's Al? Did he leave the group? Well either way, it was pretty sad. I'm sorry, I respect the guys for carrying on and still rocking, but it's just not the same. At least not without Carl. They've turned the genius masterpieces of Brian Wilson into modern-pop elevator/Barney music. It's almost embarrassing. They have nine members onstage now, (one of which is Mike's young son, Brian), all of which look young enough to be their sons, and it makes Mike and Bruce look like great-grandpas...with their white socks pulled up to their knees and their Hawaiian shirts. I saw the Beach Boys in '93 (with the great Carl Wilson and Al Jardine), and it wasn't nearly as bad as this. In fact, it was great. Now, like I said, they've turned the genius songs of Brian Wilson into tunes that could be played on Sesame Street. And then people wonder why the Beach Boys are thought of by a lot of people as just some goofy surf band. Like I said, it's cool that they are carrying on, but it's almost a mockery of what they once were.
