Rolling Stone reports that the four surviving Beach Boys (Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston) are planning a 2012 fiftieth-anniversary reunion tour. Brian Wilson seems to be nothing but honest about what’s behind the decision:
Asked if he’s looking forward to the anniversary, he responds, “Not particularly,” adding, “I don’t really like working with the guys, but it all depends on how we feel and how much money’s involved. Money’s not the only reason I made records, but it does hold a place in our lives.”Way to manage your artistic legacy there, Brian.
