Brian Wilson Announces Live Shows With Other Former Beach Boys
Posted by Joseph Lee on 03.08.2013
NME reports that Brian Wilson has announced two live shows he will perform with Al Jardine and David Marks of The Beach Boys.
This comes after news that they had a falling out with Mike Love and Bruce Johnston in 2012, who will continue to play live under the Beach Boys name without Wilson, Jardine or Marks.
Mike Love revealed the announcement last year after the conclusion of the band's 50th anniversary tour. In an open letter published by the LA Times, he wrote: "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 replied in another letter: "By Mike not wanting or letting Al, David and me tour with the band, it sort of feels like we're being fired."
