ira Posted December 4, 2011 Share Posted December 4, 2011 I took my beautiful son Jake to see the Beach Boys tonite ...Music has always been a real bond between Jake and me.He's a special needs kid...and he's REALLY special.Well I had some trepidation....being a bit of a 60's Rock And Roll musical purist....and knowing that this band doesn't have Brian Wilson and Al Jardine.This version of the Beach Boys contains original member Mike Love...semi-original member Bruce Johnston and a buncha young guys...and their reputation is that they are a "Hit Machine" that gives the people what they want...But I gotta say...They were GREAT!Mike's buddy...Uncle Jesse...(John Stamos)...John Cowsill...and super original Beach Boy David Marks were all in attendance.They played some GREAT "Lost Hits"..."Hawaii".."California Dreamin'"..."Getcha Back".."Little Honda"...their version of "Why Do Fools Fall In Love".."Surf City" which Brian wrote and gave to Jan and Dean....the incredibly obscure..."Still Crusin"...which I believe was their follow-up to "Kokomo"..."Little Saint Nick"....and to top it off Bruce did "Disney Girls"...and these tunes were delightfully sprinkled between the hits.It was great fun...and forgive me GMan...Hollies65...and other musical historians on this site...but Mike was in great voice...and I recommend this show to ALL members and their families...and this is coming from a Beach Boys fan who knows that this band is not the real thing...BUT..."It's Only Rock And Roll...And I Like(d) It".
