  Sat. 8/19/17 11:21am J.D.:

Michael, please ask Mike how he feels about getting a co-write credit for Good Vibrations for coming up with "I'm picking up good vibrations/she's giving me excitations"? Ironic that Brian decided to include it on the new version of SMiLE enabling his cousin to share in the profits for an album he disparaged whenever he could.
  Sat. 8/19/17 11:23am J.D.:

In my opinion, Good Vibrations was a separate and complete work; the bridge between Pet Sounds and SMiLE. I wish Brian (or the record company) did not include it on SMiLE.

Michael, no, I don't expect you to ask him that. I just wanted to make a point and have it out there for you and my fellow listeners to ponder. Being a fan of the Beach Boys from the beginning - yes, I was a huge Beach Boys fan growing up in Brooklyn in the '60s, my dislike for Mike Love has grown organically through the years.

As much as they respect and laud one another, Brian's work with Van Dyke Parks (amongst others) was equally awsome. Maybe because M: has been such a douche publicly, we tend to not want to like him...
  Sat. 8/19/17 12:11pm BEAVO:

He wrote the lyrics to California Girls and Good Vibrations go figure.

  Sat. 8/19/17 12:20pm J.D.:

I was at a BB gig in the early '80s at Westbury Music Fair. Carl wasn't there, but everyone else was. Mike was making fun of Brian for the entire gig, and I wasn't happy about that. Bruce actually came over to me mid-song, and I told him what I felt about Mike goofing on Brian. He made some excuses for Love's behavior, we shook hands and he went back on stage.
  Sat. 8/19/17 12:22pm andy fuchs:

Considering what Brian went through, his "recovery" is nothing short of awesome. To make fun of anyone (as JD said) in that situation is reprehensible and further supports my contention he's a DB.
  Sat. 8/19/17 12:24pm paul:

ML is 76! So I will cut him some slack.
  Sat. 8/19/17 12:28pm andy fuchs:

paul: I don't know about you, but the older I get the more mellow I get and the more sensitive and forgiving I became. There are too many things in life a heck of a lot more important than treating a lifelong friend (and relative) like that. If it wasn't for the Beach Boys, what would Mike Love have become and be doing for a living ?
  Sat. 8/19/17 12:30pm paul:

@Andy. I agree. I would never condone that. I won't cut him that much slack.

Murry is like Col. Parker and Brian Epstein in that yes he made awful business decisions once his act got big, but it also wouldn't have happened without him
  Sat. 8/19/17 12:45pm SeanG:

good point Joe B!
Avatar Sat. 8/19/17 12:46pm Michael Shelley:

Andy - interesting question - but I honestly think you could turn it around - Brian has talent on a scale that is unbelievably unique - off the charts - but he's also an introvert, and without cousin Mike's ambition and extroverted-ness and ear for hooks, it could be argued that Brian would have not achieved pop success.
  Sat. 8/19/17 12:47pm Dean:

One of my brother's buddies worked with the BB as a young adult, pretty much right out of college, during the "Kokomo" years. The kid died, sadly, just a few years later. Real gregarious guy.

AHAHAHAH this is brilliantly fun to hear them goof about
  Sat. 8/19/17 12:57pm DennisK:

Great interview, Mike. Just wanted to add my 2cents with one observation: I once traveled from the corner of Mt. Vernon & Fairway in Inglewood (the site of the old Love family home), and then drove to W 119th Street in Hawthorne (the Wilsons's home) - the contrast explains a great deal of the psychology of the animosity Murry held against the Loves
  Sat. 8/19/17 12:58pm DennisK:

The Love home was a palace, which the dad lost after his business went south - you can imagine Mike saying "That's never going to happen to me, if I can help it."
Avatar Sat. 8/19/17 12:58pm glenn:

hate the scripted banter.
  Sat. 8/19/17 12:58pm Dean:

Murry eventually moved inland to Whittier, where he died.
  Sat. 8/19/17 12:59pm SeanG:

that was fun!
  Sat. 8/19/17 12:59pm DennisK:

And Murry resented driving back to crummy Hawthorne after those Xmas visits to the Loves's
