I'll Tell You What Would Be Nice

So everybody's favorite Mike Love has decided to sue Brian Wilson for:

"Shamelessly misappropriated Mike Love's songs, likeness and the Beach Boys trademark, as well as the Smile album itself."

Apparently, Mr. Love feels that the 2.6 million copies of a Beach Boys compilation that were given away to promote Smile undercut the sales of Beach Boys albums, you know the ones he makes money off of.

If anything is undercutting Beach Boys sales, I think it would be Mike Love's insistence on continuing to play music, either that or this. Five day waiting period...but I'm angry now.


  1. It's simple math: the Beach Boys have survived without Brian Wilson, but the Beach Boys couldn't have survived with the Love. I mean, did they need B-Wil to write "Kokomo"?

  2. I think of them as the Zombie Beach Boys with Mike Love as their unholy leader spreading the virus.
