Carl would also marry his first wife Annie Hinsche in and they would have two and Paul had a complex relationship, Carl had a complex relationship with Brian.
It goes, "yea, Funky come back, Funky come back" over and over again. Thursday, June 21, Billy returns to Holland, standing outside the venue, prior to the show. Carl eased me into one of the background vocal parts they were working on for "Darlin'. I played a guitar part on that one as well. Denny let me play guitar on his "River Song" and sing some background vocals too. I sang the original lead vocal on "Honkin' Down the Highway" but Gene Landy had it removed and replaced it with Al Jardine's vocal, to give me a personal taste of how much clout he had.
We never really got along that well and I don't miss him now that he's gone. Of course, there was the entire "Live" album circa that won such critical acclaim and for which I was presented a gold record.
My first and still my most treasured gold record. I'm sure there are more, but I can't remember them all right now. Your favorite Beach Boys or Brian Wilson song to perform is: So tough to answer, but "God Only Knows" seems to trump every other song.
Tell us about touring with the Brian Wilson Band. Does it differ much from performing with the Beach Boys? The touring aspect was a little different from what I am accustomed to. The Beach Boys reached a level where we were flying to each city in a magnificent, well-appointed BAC corporate jet; but I am old and spoiled now, and don't really care for traveling in a bus, no matter how nice it is.
But it is something I just had to get used to. I find that trying to sleep in a bunk during an eleven hour overnight trek to be slightly claustrophobic and it weirds me out a little.
I was fortunate to be on Brian's bus which was brand new and beautifully decorated. It had all the conveniences you could imagine, but it was like traveling in a small boat, if you know what I mean. Close quarters and one had to do a constant balancing act just to walk to the bathroom. The rest of the band traveled in a separate bus. The last flight was from Glasgow to Dublin, Ireland, then home. As far as performing, the songs are the same, it's just the personnel that has changed, save for Brian.
Back in the old days, everyone sang the part they were given on the record with additional vocal parts being given to people like me to help cover all the additional parts, like the overdubs, since there were layers and layers of parts on some of the later material starting around the time of "California Girls. In Brian's band there are times that certain vocal parts are doubled at certain times.
Though I had my own specific vocal part on every single song on the Brian tour, Nicky Wonder and I share a vocal part at times, and Nelson Bragg and I share a vocal part at times.
On the other hand, when I perform with Al Jardine, he doesn't allow any parts to be doubled - that's just his approach and that is fine too.
The only songs in Brian's set that I had never played or sang are "Drive In," which I found to be a real fun song to perform, and quite different from the rest of the set in terms of its simplicity of lyrics, chords, and general overall feel, and also "When I Grow Up to be a Man ," a difficult song to learn, but a joy to perform because the song means so much to me.
It was also nice to revisit "Caroline, No" and "Marcella," both of which I have played many times with the original Beach Boys lineup. Over the years, my physical position on the stage has changed many times, i.
I got a nice bird's eye view of everything from that vantage point. Brian didn't have the use of a TelePrompTer for this tour, as several pieces of luggage went missing right from the start of the tour and were never recovered, lost somewhere in the bowels of Heathrow Airport, UK.
As a result, Brian was simply being himself and introducing each song in his own, spontaneous way, unencumbered by any written text.
What was most touching to me was how he introduced me for "Sail on Sailor," referring to me as a "family member. He had tired of singing "Sailor on Sailor" early in the tour, and before we even left for Europe I began singing it again during the California leg, perhaps to give himself a little break from his prodigious vocal duties.
So it was my good fortune when he offered it to me. I was probably the only person who could remember all those tongue-twsiting words anyway. I took the responsibility very seriously, knowing that Brian sat only a few feet away from me on my left, and wanting to do the very best job I could for him.

It was a privilege to be the only band member to have a solo song during the show. Tell us about that experience. Friday, June 29, Brian's suite, Westin Hotel, Leipzig, Germany. I went over right away to hear a song called "Lady Love" that was still incomplete. He played it for me on the upright piano in his living room.
I added a few words and ideas and recorded it with Dino and Desi a short time later. It was a hit for us and I am very proud that I share a writer's credit, albeit it's a minimal contribution, on a song with Brian Wilson as co-writer. We even recorded a few live CDs go to: We have played across the U. You might say that we are "on hold" for a while as far as live shows or any more recordings.

I am extremely proud to be a part of this ongoing effort, especially in Carl's name. He has a kickin' band and his voice is still outstanding. Carl obviously loved soul music. It also has to be pointed out that like George and Paul had a complex relationship, Carl had a complex relationship with Brian.
There were many challenging moments for both Carl and Brian but in the end the bond of brotherhood remained. Brian was obviously deeply uncomfortable and unhappy and looked very frightened.

Do you have any idea how that happened? Wow, cool bedside manner there doc.
I could have given him that advice. Finally, it was my turn. The Doc came in. He was a young guy, so I assumed he was an intern on his residency, stuck on an emergency ward shift. Can you stay off of it for few days? What were they teaching in medical school back then anyway? I explained my situation and he suggested that I rent crutches to get around until my plane left on Friday.
Cedars Sinai emergency actually had crutches available, so I rented a pair actually I only need one for my sprained ankle, so I left the other one in the hotel room, where it magically and inexplicably disappeared the next day. Today that same visit would have me calling my bank manager back in Toronto to get a second and third mortgage on my home.
At the Cedars Sinai Emergency Ward entrance, it was even worse. There were simply no hacks to be had. Eventually, I started hobbling my way along Beverly Boulevard for a good couple of blocks on my newly rented crutches, until finally, a solitary cab with its light on meaning it was available approached on the horizon.
I stuck out my good crutch, the cab mercifully stopped and took me back to my hotel. Not that I thought he was going to be difficult, but after waiting nearly two weeks for the interview, I wanted to make sure I had interesting questions for him.
