8 Years Strong

This month sees the eight anniversary of this blog – it seems like a flash, but also a lot has happened, including the 50th year reunion, a great new Beach Boys album, Brian Wilson solo works and even, for me, Mike Love visiting my town and the Flames reuniting here. So while I started the blog wondering whether there would be much to say on the Beach Boys and Brian Wilson side, there has been a lot to say. With new Brian Wilson music, his biopic and the Pet Sounds 5oth anniversary all coming up relatively soon, I expect there to be a bit to say as well.

The passing of time unfortunately also sees the passing of people, and the Beach Boys world has been saddened by the loss of David Anderle, with Brian saying on his Facebook page¬† “David Anderle passed away. I’m devastated beyond words. That’s just all I have to say. Love and Mercy. Your friend always, Brian.”¬† And these are times of much tragedy and reflection, as well as joys; but we know we will always have the music and the warmth of the sun.
