Brian Wilson and the surviving members of the Beach Boys have reunited for the first time since 2012 for a new interview. They got together for a Q&A session recently at Capitol Records in Hollywood, the very place they recorded some of their biggest hits nearly fifty years ago.
Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, David Marks and Bruce Johnstonanswered questions by a small crowd of fans for an hour-long Q&A session in their first public appearance since their 50th-anniversary tour. At one point, a woman asked if the group had any collaborations they regret not doing, and Jardine answered, “I know: The Beatles.” He says that he thought it was going to happen since John Lennon and George Harrison had visited his London hotel room in the 60s to discuss music. What he did take away from the meeting, however, was a lesson in “transcendental meditation.”
After the interview, Mike Love told “Rolling Stone” mag that it was nice to get together with Brian, adding, “Brian and I connect on a pretty primordial level. He’s got his own band. We’ve got our own. We’re usually on our own trajectories.” The group is also promoting a new album “The Beach Boys With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra,” which features original Beach Boys vocal tracks mixed with orchestral arrangements.
