The five-piece, which includes founding members Brian Wilson, Mike Love and Al Jardine will embark upon a 50-date world tour and record a new album.

I can think of nothing more exciting than to see a bunch of old men,
in discretely hidden "incontinence pads", shuffling about a stage with
the aid of "zimmer frames", singing their adolescent songs again.

Surely, life can not get any better than that.

I hope I get a chance to see them! Brian Wilson is one of the best ever modern composer/producers. A true artist!

I'll be sure to park my "zimmer frame" out of your way, bb..... ;)

Brian Wilson will turn 70 in 2012.

Paul Simon, who was on tour and had a new album out this year, is a year older than Wilson.

Both men are poets of my generation and I'm grateful to both of them. But Simon continued to have something new to say over the years. Wilson, alas, not so much. It is fun to remember, however. I saw the Beach Boys in concert in 1971 and 1973, going out with friends, and at the time I complained they were over the hill. Man, like, they were 30 years old...sheee...

I don't think at that age I would have the energy. But having seen the Rolling Stones on their first retirement tour and Simon and Garfunkel on another "last tour" you never know.
Hear Queen are liking to appear again with a new lead singer... you heard it here first

Couple weeks back, PBS was asking for money and therefore did what they always do: throw out the regular programming that makes people tune to PBS in the first place, and put on a bunch of specials instead. In this case, concert of early-to-mid-60's music. Nice. And then, so help me, they started blathering about being in college at the time, and inviting people to send in memories.

Uhm... Thinking it over... Dear PBS, are you absolutely certain that college memories from the '60's will be suitable for prime time?

Which of the Beach Boys was it that died? Used to be an unwritten law that one member of every band had to die. A bit rough if you happen to be a one-person act, but there you are.

I thought one had to do the Hank Marvin "apache walk" whenever one touched htaccess :)

The shadows were usually known as the "shads" as in 'arry 'n' the shads..or to be strictly accurate 'ari 'n' the shads..

I seen The Beach Boys with Billy Joel as the warm up act back in the mid 70's. It was an outdoor venue and they put on a great show.

They had the entire audience up on their feet and dancing for nearly the whole show. Not sure all their aging followers will be able to do that this time around.

Ahhhh the 70's, what good times they were :)

If she cuts off some of her underarm hair to make a fine moustache one would be hard put to see any difference.
