Beach Boys: Mike Love into TM? Who Knew? (2010)
A July 26 story in Billboard reports that the Beach Boys--at least the ones who are still alive--might reunite for a free show in 2011 to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of their first single.
Then again, says the story, they might not.
Call me prescient, but I'd already guessed as much. In fact, I'm going to go out on a limb right now and say that the Beach Boys might or might not reunite and play a free concert every day for the rest of their lives.
But the best part of the story is this paragraph: "[Mike] Love says he himself has recorded '18 to 20 songs that I have yet to come out with,' including tunes inspired by his experiences with Transcendental Meditation and the Maharashi Mahesh Yogi and a song entitled 'Pisces Brothers,' which Love describes as 'a reminiscence about George Harrison.'"
Please, Mike, release those eighteen-to-twenty songs while they're hot!
