There have been rumors circulating for nearly a year that the three surviving, original members of The Beach Boys
would reunite to celebrate the band's 50th anniversary this year. Now, Brian Wilson
has said that he's open to the idea.
"I'm considering it
", Wilson told BBC6 Music
. "I don't know yet but I'm considering it. Nothing's really holding me back. I just don't know if I want to be around those guys, you know. They're zany guys. They're crazy.
The other, "zany
" guys that Brian would be joining are guitarist Al Jardine
and singer Mike Love
, who continues to tour as The Beach Boys along with long-running member Bruce Johnston
. Fellow founding members (and Brian's brothers) Carl Wilson
and Dennis Wilson
have passed away.
In 2010, Love had announced that a reunion tour was in the works before retracting his statement. Jardine also told Rolling Stone
magazine that the reunited band would "definitely
" do a show that might be free. Stay tuned.
Thanks for the report to Bryan Wawzenek
