Brian Wilson Considering Beach Boys Reunion

Before I get into this segment of Music News, I have a question. Why is it that the name Brian Wilson spawns craziness? Brian Wilson (musician) lost his marbles in 1969 and has been collecting these marbles ever since. And Brian Wilson (the SF Giants closer), is perhaps the most intense baseball player in the game and his beard is weird (to quote the Just For Men beard commercials).

Anyway, Brian Wislon (musician) recently announced that he would retire from live performances in 2012, but before his last goodbye he may want to rejoin his old surviving band mates and run through his old discography. How cool would that be? “Good Vibrations” with the Boys of the surf.

Asked by BBC Music about playing with the band, Wilson said, “I’m considering it. I don’t know yet but I’m considering it. Nothing’s really holding me back. I just don’t know if I want to be around those guys you know. They’re zany guys. They’re crazy.”

It would be the first performance for Wilson with his old band-mates in around 20 years.

Do you think he will schedule some dates? I have to think Wilson will perform a few with the band before he retires from the stage.


Coldplay Sponsors Safe Driving

Driver’s Education instructors who want to promote safe driving should put Coldplay on to relax students getting behind the wheel for the first time. Seriously.

According to a Stereogum article, “A new survey by Halfords asked people if their driving was affected by the music they were listening to while behind the wheel. 60% said yes. A couple of the tracks that made them more aggressive: Beastie Boys’s “Sabotage” and Kanye West’s “Stronger.” On the flipside, folks felt mellower in the presence of Jack Johnson (obviously) and Fleetwood Mac.” Link:

On the list of chill driving songs is Coldplay’s “Yellow.”

Calm Driving

Aggressive Driving

Get off the road!


Review of Rome

Here is a little plug for an excellent “Consequence of Sound” review of Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi’s Rome which will be released tomorrow. The album is truly excellent. Here is the Music Court review for another perspective.
