I'm really dissapointed, not only The reformed Beach Boys never toured South America, but the crappy Mike Love led version of the band didn't come wither!

The Mike&Bruce band isn't crappy. In fact they have a very fine group

They are when compared to the Wilson/Love/Johnston/Marks/Jardine version.
They're a cover band that licensed the name of the original group, just like Guns N Roses is now.

If you blinked, you could've missed the BB's reunion. Should not have ended the way it did.

Do you have any information on the Big Box set or any links? Track listing, contents, etc?

No, there's nothing out there yet. Since it'll be released later this year we just have to wait and enjoy the live album.


BTW Brian and Al are back together in the studio... No one seems to know what kind of project it is but Brian used Don Was and Jeff Beck a.o. for the backing tracks
