Fantastic news.
Brian Wilson performing Smile with the 19 piece Swedish Band was magnificent.
Now we have Pet Sounds.
I will be in the front row.
Thank you Peter Noble.

My 35 year old business partners think that when you are 60 plus that you are over the hill and should retire.
Brian is 70 plus.
I have always had respect for my elders,which is in sad contrast to the bulk of today's society.

I never said anything about his age .. basically it was a terrible performance and there were others there that night who agreed with me (Brisbane Riverstage October 2010). And yes I know he has neurological issues etc. and I feel sad for him. The old Beach Boys songs are amazing and I still had a good time. I vaguely remember a Beach Boys show at a football field in Narrabeen, Sydney in the late 90s. John Stamos was touring with them. That was a great show.

What do you mean by it was a terrible performance.
We are talking about one person in a large band.
They do have back up vocalists plus the other instruments.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VjJYUlZBGU4
There are plenty of people in the music game who cannot sing as they could in their heyday.
Simple examples are Alan Clarke who gave up touring with the Hollies.
Have a look at Eric Burdon singing House Of The Rising Sun compared to when it was first released.
It is reflective of the aging process,as with many other aspects of human development.
Brian Wilson touring is a celebration of the songs.
If you want a vocalist in prime form choose youth in R Kelly or Lil Wayne

At the show I went to Brian Wilson was basically the backup vocalist while another man did most of the lead vocals. He sat on a chair with a keyboard looking confused at times and during the last song of the night abruptly exited the stage before the song had even finished. The band were wonderful and whoever the man was doing most of the singing was great too. Maybe Wilson was having a bad night that night ..

Ha cheers, not, ah, quite guesswork.

I can only see a little bit into the future, but in circumstances like these, it's far enough into the future to know what's being announced the next day.

I love the idea of Brian Wilson.
I'm just not sure about Bluesfest being the best venue for him.
I saw him in a theatre setting-1200 people.That was brilliant.
I hope it works.

I saw Brian W back in 2002 on his Smile tour in Sydney's State Theater
Included in my group was a slightly older dude who wooed his missus with the Beach Boys a consist presence back in the day.
It was a good night worth the effort, Brian was involved maybe 50% of the time, knowing the background and Brian's fragility
this was to be expected I guess
As long as you are there anyway, Pet Sounds should be interesting

I assume that Brian Wilson & Tom Jones will clash on Monday.
That will be a very difficult choice.
http://13thfloor.co.nz/reviews/concert-reviews/burt-bacharach-vector-arena-november-7-2015/
The balancing factor might be to catch one of them back home,assuming that a time outside the Bluesfest Schedule is available.
Catching the Burt Bacharach show on Saturday was a further reflection on Brian and how age affects human performance.
Burt at 87 was struggling to get words out from a singing perspective.
There is an arguable viewpoint that he should not have sung at all.
But they are songs which he co-composed.
The audience was very respectful with a number of standing ovations.
I view Brian Wilson in exactly the same light as Burt.
As for the issue of disabilities in general.
There are sufficient posters who have a disability to be able to comment on the subject.

I saw Brian back at splendour "06" "07"?? His band was excellent. He on the other hand hardly sang when he did he didn't finish lines. Just sat up there looking bewildered with his feet in a tray of sand. Hey I will prob go for a walk and have a gander so let's hope it was just a poor period I saw him in.


Dear Skot,
Are you going to be a goose all your life?

Dear Mr Ranger
I too saw Burt two weeks ago.
I agree with everything you've written.
