"The Beach Boys are quite simply America's finest pop group. Their combination of great melodies, intricate harmonies, intelligent songwriting and sheer fun has ensured that they remain loved and admired throughout the world more than 40 years on." The Rebel Magazine asked a plethora of Beach Boy fans to answer a bunch of questions about why they love Mike Love & co. First question: What's your favourite album sleeve or photo of the band?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dlL7-j-IvVA and the fact that he's blissfully unaware of how much of a dick everyone thinks he is. We've got a lot in common." Duglas T. Stewart: "Mike sang some great lead vocals, wrote some great pop lyrics and some beautiful heart lyrics too. He also made some major musical contributions to tracks including Good Vibrations and wrote some really good songs solo. The Landlocked version of his song Big Sur is so beautiful (and vastly superior to the version released on Holland). I don't like his politics but he brought a lot to The Beach Boys." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p6nYY80eSn0 Lovely stuff. Or "God Only Knows" by The Langley Schools Music Project which is haunting." Duglas T. Stewart: "None improved on it but I think the PP Arnold version is very worthwhile. It's a really good version. I think the original is unbeatable."https://forgottentelevisiondrama.wordpress.com/ Simon Love released a brilliant album a few years back: http://www.allmusic.com/album/it-seemed-like-a-good-idea-at-the-time-mw0002858007 Emma Darling has her own site here: http://www.emmastacedarling.com/ and John Tozer is a man of mystery.
