Nobody mentions John Stamos. Probably the genius behind um, the occasional bongos.

Yeah, I remember around 1988 the summer tour ads had a photo of the Beach Boys showing Brian, Mike, Carl, Al and Bruce Johnston. Then the next year it was the same lineup minus Brian. Then it got pretty sad sometime in the 90's when the photo showed Mike, Bruce and John Stamos.

Hahaha - nice! And yes, pbuzby, I understand your point. I just was trying to say that I believe without Brian, the BB would have never "existed". (I would also argue that without Mike, they would have.) :wink:

<snicker> I was going to rib him for "forgetting" Stamos and decided not to. Glad to see you wouldn't let it slide. :wink:

I never liked the beach boys either.

just wanted to make that clear.

if you don't mind, fellow forum members.

Most people seem to dismiss The Beach Boys as sunny happy music with nerdy vocals. The ballads sung by Brian and Carl are what makes them legends. The Beatles could never top them in the sad ballad department - though they tried.

Ahem! Ummm,one question please.

Has anyone here wondered if "Call Any Vegetable" was a parody of "Vega-Tables"? I mean where did the "Call Any..." idea come from? Did Frank hear about (or hear demos of...) Smile and decide to razz the Beach Boys new LSD Duck-Blind version of the group? (Sorry ,I had to mention THAT song intro,...especially in reference to Brian ! Ha!) I just started to wonder,...and slip into an alternate universiality ,sort of state of mind of "What-if"-isms..... Just to sound more like a Gail Z liner note. (Haw,again!!) Anyone got a clue????

Interesting theory. I don't have any more info for ya on that one though. What did you mean by "Duck-Blind" (I don't follow that reference)?

I would say it's doubtful. The Smile sessions were 1966-1967 and AF was released in 1967. Maybe Frank heard a demo of the song, but I don't see it happening.

Oh,that's one of the "studio chatter" things from the Grand Funk album (Good Singin',Good playin") Frank produced years later. I was just shooting all sorts of weird crap in there tryin' to be a bit "Gail-like"(in writing) ,....or maybe keeping the "continuity" thing in it all. I was just being a weird-o ,in other words! None the less ...Grand Funk say "LSD Duck-Blind,....take 3 ..." or something,....and I just tossed it in. Maybe like "LSD Sand-Box".....ya know?! Ha!

BUT I did wonder about Vega-Tables,...and Call Any.... They do seem to have some connection,don't they? I still wonder....really!

I think the answer is clear......
sleep a lot, eat a lot, brush 'em like crazy, run a lot, do a lot, never be lazy and the vega-table will respond to you
