  1. Been way to long since Eric created some new music. Surely, there are enough of us "dinosaur" fans still around who would be interested in listening to Eric's brand of music. If Brian Wilson is still touring, releasing new CDs, ...maybe Eric could have a chat with Brian and follow his lead..?? ( Wouldn't it be Nice ?? )
  2. John Lennon

    I walked over to the Dakota House here in NYC on 12-9 ( the day after Lennon was killed ) on my lunch break from work. Sad scene, almost surreal. Geraldo Rivera walked by us with a camera crew. Still think of John often especially when uptown near Central Park. George Harrison, too. The 4 of them changed the world, indeed. Marc
  3. Pet Sounds......

    Still the greatest pop album, IMHO. Somehow, and in some way, it defies the passage of time. Never get tired of it...Enjoy. Marc
  4. Listening to the body of his work, GH certainly left behind some really great material. IMO, one of the few artists who actually put some thoughts into his ideas / words. All things must pass, indeed, except perhaps our love affair with The Beatles. RIP. Marc
  5. Brian Wilson in concert last night......

    Hi Marvin. On one of his recent tours, Brian did some gigs in Canada..Montreal, possibly Toronto. I hope he gets up your way sometime soon. Enjoy. Marc
  6. Brian Wilson in concert last night......

    Hi Marvin. Brian's publicity mgt. company mentioned that he has a new album coming out probably in the spring. He might do his usual summer tour. Maybe you could catch him somewhere on the west coast. In the alternative, some of his recent concert DVDs are fun. Enjoy. Marc
  7. I saw Brian Wilson in concert last night here in NYC doing his Pet Sounds mini-tour. Compared to his voice from recent decades and even recent tours, to hear him last night again was a real treat. His voice restoration is nothing short of incredible. He had Al Jardine also playing at the show which was nice to see; Al also was in fine voice, hearing him do Rhonda was pretty close to the original from 1965. Maybe these guys have discovered the fountain of youth but are keeping it to themselves. BW will always be my favorite pop artist. Something about his music is magic. In any event, a Happy Thanksgiving to all. Marc
  8. "Brian's Song(S)"

    Going to see Brian again tomorrow night at the Beacon Theatre here in NYC..probably seen the BBs and BW about 30 times over the years. Favorite all time pop musician...one of the few true geniuses. Nice guy, too. Marc
  9. Classiest Female Actress

    I met Natalie Wood years and years ago..probably around 1968. Most beautiful woman I ever saw in person. In a weird twist of fate, I was married on 11-28-81. She died that night.
  10. Who Has The Best Male Voice?

    The greatest rock and roll voice I ever heard live was John Lennon. Elvis, Sinatra, Brian Wilson, McCartney, etc.. all great. But Lennon to me was rock at its best.
  11. One thing I will say for Mike Love...at all the BB shows over the years, on stage MIke gave a good performance and backstage, he was always "pressing the flesh" and promoting the band. Although he has opened his mouth a bit in recent years, I view that just as Mike being Mike. On the whole, his "nasal" singing, some lyrical contribution and role as front man for the band cause me not to come down too hard on Mike. But then again, that's just me.
  12. I don't know about brilliant but it has possibilities. Going to see Brian again here in NYC doing Pet Sounds next week. Jeff Bridges with a beard is a ringer for mid 1970s Brian. By the way, what does NOT mean ?
  13. If they retained some big name stars and garnered decent reviews, the public would come. Possibly Jeff Bridges/Brian, Beau Bridges/Carl, David Spade/Al Jardine, Dean Torrance/himself, McCartney/himself, etc.. for starters...??
  14. http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=17558 - - maybe, at some point, a movie about our favorite band from Cleveland could be arranged. As I recall, Mark Gordon, who is doing the BBs movie, previously produced Saving Private Ryan... Enjoy. Marc
  15. Bob Dylan rarities

    Actually, just today I was listening to the old Blonde on Blonde album. ONe of Dylan's best. BTW, what college is it that offers the class on Dylan - - maybe I can re-register back in college (LOL). Enjoy. Marc
