Beach Boys Hint At Reunion Performance
BEACH BOYS stars BRIAN WILSON, MIKE LOVE and AL JARDINE have hinted the threesome may reform without late founding members DENNIS and CARL WILSON for a one-off performance. The trio appeared in public for the first time in a decade yesterday (13JUN06) to celebrate more than 2 million copies of the band's 2003 collection, SOUNDS OF SUMMER: THE VERY BEST OF THE BEACH BOYS being sold. Also on hand to toast the achievement in Los Angeles was BRUCE JOHNSTON, who joined the touring lineup in 1965. When asked about the possibility of a reunion gig, Wilson replied, "There's a chance of that." He went on to praise the band's incredible success, saying, "I want to thank everybody involved that helped us get that album going and going. "And I thank the Beach Boys themselves for being great, great artists to produce. I'd rather produce those guys over any other artists in the whole world." Johnston added a tribute to Wilson's dead brothers Dennis, who drowned in 1983, and Carl, who died of cancer in 1998. The last time the original Beach Boys appeared together in public was to promote covers of their songs in compilation disc STARS AND STRIPES, VOL. 1, in 1996.
