Brian Wilson Says It Feels Like He's Been Fired From The Beach Boys
Posted by Joseph Lee on 10.10.2012



While writing for the Los Angeles Times, Brian Wilson said that it feels like he has been fired from The Beach Boys.

This comes after Mike Love previously wrote for the publication and defended himself. He plans to continue touring with the Beach Boys name after their 50th anniversary, which ended last month. He said: "I did not fire Brian Wilson from the Beach Boys. I cannot fire Brian Wilson from the Beach Boys. I am not his employer. I do not have such authority. And even if I did, I would never fire Brian Wilson from the Beach Boys. I love Brian Wilson."

Wilson wrote in response: "Normally I wouldn't respond to something like this, but because I love what the 50th has done for the band's image and its legacy, I feel I need to. As far as I know I can't be fired - that wouldn't be cool. The negativity surrounding all the comments bummed me out. What's confusing is that by Mike not wanting or letting Al, David and me tour with the band, it sort of feels like we're being fired.

What's a bummer to Al and me is that we have numerous offers to continue, so why wouldn't we want to? We all poured our hearts and souls into that album and the fans rewarded us by giving us a Number Three debut on the Billboard charts, and selling out our shows. We were all blown away by the response. Al and I would like to be included in the continuous promotion of 'That's Why God Made The Radio'. That's what I've been doing for over a decade: making records and going out and supporting them. It's what I do. It's Al and my opinion that all of us together makes for a great representation of the Beach Boys. While I appreciate the nice cool things Mike said about me in his letter, and I do and always will love him as my cousin and bandmate, at the same time I'm still left wondering why he doesn't want to continue this great trip we're on. Al and I want to keep going because we believe we owe it to the music.
