    God only knows if The Beach Boys will perform at Donald Trump's inauguration. The rock band still has not decided if they will perform at the presidential event on Jan. 20, according to People. A rep for the "God only Knows" musicians — once labeled "America's Band" by former president Ronald Reagan — said the group was definitely asked by Trump to perform at the event, People reported. However, they haven't made up their minds. Rockettes slated to perform at Donald Trump's inauguration John Legend posted a sweet snap with his wife Chrissy Teigen and their baby Luna with a...

  • Public University (Kentucky) Punishes Professor For Sex Crime Because He Sang A BEACH BOYS SONG

    The taxpayer-funded University of Kentucky has punished a journalism professor for sexual misconduct because, the professors says, he publicly sang "California Girls" by The Beach Boys. The professor, Buck Ryan, told his bizarre story of bureaucratic woe in an op-ed in the Lexington Herald-Leader this weekend. The University of Kentucky’s Title IX coordinator - Patty Bender, according to the public school's website - ruled that Ryan’s crooning of "California Girls" was sexual misconduct because the song includes "language of a sexual nature," Ryan writes. The occasion which caused Ryan to belt out the 1965 Beach Boys song was the closing...

    The Beach Boys, who performed at President Ronald Reagan's 1985 inaugural ball, paid tribute to Nancy Reagan Sunday night at their concert in Abilene, Texas, just hours after it was revealed that the former first lady had died at the age of 94. For the tribute, Mike Love and the Beach Boys performed an a cappella take on the Four Freshmen's "Their Hearts Were Full of Spring," the same song they performed at Reagan's 1985 gala.

    News of musician Mike Love’s death spread quickly earlier this week causing concern among fans across the world. However the October 2015 report has now been confirmed as a complete hoax and just the latest in a string of fake celebrity death reports. Thankfully, Beach Boys singer is alive and well.

    The Beach Boys frontman opens up about his new solo album No Pier Pressure and alleged ‘rivalry’ with The Beatles. “Rubber Soul inspired Pet Sounds, which inspired Sgt. Pepper’s and that inspired me to make Smile,” Brian Wilson tells me, recalling his 1960s game of one-upmanship with the Beach Boys’ so-called rivals The Beatles. “It wasn’t really a rivalry, though. I was jealous!” Wilson says with a hearty laugh. “It was really just mutual inspiration, I think. I would get to hear their records before they came out and I was totally blown away by Rubber Soul. And Sgt. Pepper’s?...

    I love the Beach Boys (not the way I love the Beatles, but still), so why can’t I wholeheartedly love Smile? I ask this question sincerely. I think Brian Wilson is a songwriter, singer, and bassist worthy of great praise. I understand why Paul McCartney was so blown away by Pet Sounds that he dreamed up the idea for Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. I’m glad Smile has finally seen the official light of day, and I’m intrigued by the what-if game of wondering about what might have happened if Smile had been released in 1967, as originally intended....

    Wouldn't it be nice...if the Beach Boys could finally all get along? Alas, it appears that the beloved icons--who have a long history of inter-band ups and downs--are not destined for peace in this lifetime. After delighting fans this year with a 50th anniversary reunion tour and album including revered frontman Brian Wilson, Mike Love has dropped a bomb on three of his surviving bandmates: He's going to continue touring without them. Under the name "The Beach Boys." Love first made this announcement last week, when he unceremoniously stated that he planned to dump his cousin and creative lead Wilson,...

    Heroes [not] Villains The irony of the Beach Boys’ tragedy has made that tragedy all the more painful. For several generations of people around the world, the band’s vey name has been synonymous with good ol’ fashioned fun in the sun, of fresh-faced, pre-Vietnam American innocence. Even their more crestfallen later work was defined by a sweet, nostalgic ache. But the band’s tale of abuse, addiction, mental illness, dubious associations, premature deaths, and ugly lawsuits is by now almost as familiar as “California Girls”. At the center of it all, of course, has been Brian Wilson. In terms of public...

    Bruce Johnston of the Beach Boys unloaded some foul-mouthed political commentary onto both President Obama and presumed Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney recently, labeling both men “a–holes” and further declaring Obama a socialist. Sound a little harsh for the ‘Fun, Fun, Fun’ / ‘Good Vibrations’ singer? Well, see for yourself in the video below, courtesy of TMZ.  “Obama’s an a—-le,” the musician declares to a fan looking for a photo opportunity. “Unless you’re interested in never having any money and being socialized.”He also warns of what will happen if our President doesn’t face re-election pressure: “Wait ’til Obama doesn’t have...

    “That’s Why God Made the Radio” certainly has everything a vintage Beach Boys tune needs: Breezy harmonies, references to cars, and an almost exhausting sense of sweetness. There is something profoundly bizarre about the Beach Boys putting out new music in 2012, especially considering how many artists (especially in the indie world) have exploited the sound they helped invent. Their influence is everywhere, from Bon Iver’s lovely layers to Katy Perry’s beach-friendly youth anthems.

    You could've guessed it was a Beach Boys show by the shirts the men in the audience wore: Collared, short-sleeved and oversized, with palm trees, hibiscus flowers and nautical gear printed on them.It wasn't until midway through the second set that Mike Love acknowledged what the people in the audience must've been thinking: "It's, uh, been a little while since we've all been on tour together." This year, the Beach Boys turn 50. Until the Grammys this February, Brian Wilson hadn't been on stage with them since 1996. The tour kickoff last night at the Anselmo Valencia Amphitheater in Tucson...

    It doesn't carry quite as much of a surprise factor as it might have some years back, before so many pop/rock stars felt the urge to sing standards from the great American Songbook, but the album by the near-legendary Brian Wilson due out on Tuesday certainly commands attention. A Disney Pearl release, "Brian Wilson Reimagines Gershwin" -- it could have been called "Gershwin Goes Surfin' " -- puts the iconic leader of the Beach Boys and a great deal of that group's vintage sound into a blender with some of the 20th century's best loved songs. It's very much a...
