They said they would celebrate their 50th anniversary in 2011 and that it may include a reunion show. Coachella would be the perfect spot for such a show.

They're still alive?

I'd say yes, only if Uncle Jesse from Full House shows up

Sunset Beach Boys or Brian solo. Sad to say Brian solo would more than likely be an Outdoor stage event, but hard to argue against a Beach Boys reunion being on the main stage.

Beach Boys w/ Brian Wilson headlining a day at Coachella would be absolutely incredible.

If not, Brian Wilson on the Outdoor would be fantastic.

Headlining Beach Boys would be respectful, but have there ever been such good songs for the sunshine as Beach Boys hits? Clip above is I Get Around / Our Prayer / Heroes and Villains.

(Longtime Beach Boys fan here)

Sorry to burst everyone's bubble but of the original 5 members:

-Brian Wilson tours on his own solo work with an extraordinary backing band.
-Dennis Wilson died in 1983 following a drowning accident.
-Carl Wilson died of cancer in 1988.
-Mike Love tours as the "Beach Boys" nowadays, but generally he and Brian haven't really gotten along.
-Al Jardine has also done solo work.

So there are still 3 of 5 members alive, but the chances of them coming together to actually all play as the Beach Boys is slim.

If anything, I'd guess that Brian with his solo stuff could happen.

Firstly, they are playing in Florida on the 17/18 of April which is Sunday/Monday.

They were signed by Capitol in 1962 and some think some 50th anniversary events in 2012. Think one-offs rather than tours.

The Capitol signed group had David Lee Marks on guitar rather than Al Jardine. For me I consider there to be 6 "original" members and 4 are alive. Plus Bruce Johnston has more or less toured, recorded and photographed as a band member since 1965(45 years).

5 Genuine Beach Boys members onstage for an event in 16 months is doable.

I know you're trying to be funny, but he actually has been playing shows with Mike Love's current "Beach Boys" lately.

I respect The Beach Boys for their contributions, but I don't want them at the Polo Fields unless GV offers an AARP discount.

Just get Brian Wilson, you don't need the rest. I've seen the current "Beach Boys" and they were just okay, adding Brian Wilson won't make that shell of a group any better.
Brian Wilson on his own would be perfect at around sundown-providing his nerve held.

Maybe GV could come up with enough cash to convince Jesse to get the Rippers back together if Brian Wilson is busy...

I love The Beach Boys, and Brian Wilson in general, but he's depressing live. I saw him live about 8 years ago, he's old and his brain is fried from all of the drugs, and it's really just sad. Not something I would want for Coachella.

Wow, Brian Wilson looks absolutely miserable there. Like, unusually miserable.

listen to Pet Sounds and compare to the Animal Collective (Feels and previous)

huge similarities

but the wacko-neuroticism of Brian Wilson is all I want on the polo fields. a beach boys set like in the video doesn't appeal to me at all, but I'd dig on Brian Wilson being there. I'm surprised he tours solo stuff though, i thought he had long gone nuts.

Totally disagree here.

Unless Coachella is trying to bring the 50 - 70-something crowd they wouldn't be a "huge get" by any stretch.

People would look at the flyer and go, "OMGZ TEH BEACH BOYS ARE HEADLINING SATURDAY THEYRE SO AWESOME ITS GOING TO BE EPIC" and then when they hit the stage people will realize how weak of a headliner they are.

It's been quite a while since I've see The Beach Boys live in concert--1987 I think--but I never thought they were a very good live show to be honest. Their records sound so much better; definately a "studio" band. Now, with so many of the original members no longer members, some dead, I question the value of bringing them to Coachella. If it's a '60s act, I'm still gangbusters for bring the original Monkees (including Mike Nesmith) to Coachella 2011.

12-28-2010, 01:29 PM
If either was to happen, i don't think headlining would even be in the thought process. Sun needs to be involved.

I'd have to agree: I don't think The Monkees should headline Coachella 2011, but I do think they'd fit nicely on the bill and bring-in many patrons, and not just the 50-somethings that grew up with them on the TV show in the '60s, but the younger generation who experienced them for the first time on "Nick At Nite" reruns (in the '90s), etc. Plus, their motion picture, "Head" just got re-released on DVD & Blue Ray by Criterion Collection, plus Rhino Records has just re-released their albums as 2CD (and even 3CD) deluxe editions, so The Monkess are definately getting a big media push right now, something Golden Voice could capitalize on. Oops, I forgot....this is a Beach Boys thread.

why would they be a weak headliner? I dont follow your logic. They are an incredible band, and i think they would put on an incredible show

i think this is realized. If there was going to be Beach Boy representation, more than likely it's gonna be just Mr. Wilson. It would just be neat if Al and Mike were on stage as well and they were somehow getting along. Good Vibrations with those 3 would be pretty special.

Who knows if they would be or not, but there have been less deserving acts in headlining spots over the years (see: Jack Johnson and The Killers)

Either way, i think this is a ridiculously stupid idea. I can't deny their talent or impact on music, but I have always found their music to be overly corny and completely annoying.

It's a ridiculously stupid idea just because its not going to happen, irrespective of the merits (or lack thereof) of the music itself. See also: Underground, The Velvet.

Mike Patton can be an asshole too. Though he's got a little bit more of a sense of houmour.

I could see it happening this year. But I agree with GuyInTucson that it would be good on paper but then it would be pretty disappointing once they started playing. I saw wilson few years back and it was good, but not coachella headline material by any stretch. But then again what do I know. An afternoon main stage slot would work however, and there are some rumors about a reunion happening this year. http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/brian-wilson-hints-at-beach-boys-50th-anniversary-reunion-20110516

-tim The beach boys are one of my favorite bands, but unfortunately it's 2011 and not 1967. Coachella should be about new/upcoming or bands at the top of their game. That's how I feel at least. Don't get me wrong, i would love to see the beach boys with wilson play. But I would rather it not be on polo fields taking a spot away from a potential incredible act like Arcade fire. As mentioned before something like the beach boys sounds good on paper, but then when you see a bunch of sober as a judge 70 year olds take the stage being cheese balls it would surely be disappointing.

Wilson has been touring the past few years. Just not with the surviving members of the beach boys.
