But, you know again, getting back to what a group like ours might represent - the cleanliness thing.
I really dig the scene that's happening now, I really do, because there might be a lot of bad things going on, but if out of all of those bad things ten per cent of the groovy part of it stays, wow... you can't beat that.
Of course The Beach Boys will be camp.
We're just kinda surviving at a very comfortable level.
You know, The Beach Boys' image is kinda like a group Doris Day, you know what I mean?
Before I joined The Beach Boys, I was working at Columbia Records as a producer, and saw The Byrds come in and do their first overdub before Terry even met them.
The group started getting bigger and bigger, so Al started replacing Brian on the road, and then finally there was a big flare-up with Dave Marks and he left the group.
Brian came back in on the road and Al stayed, but Al's the original member of the group.
Carl, Dennis and Brian are brothers, and Mike Love's a cousin.
Everybody can dig The Beatles, but why should everybody dig us?
For us... you know, we're not The Beatles.
I mean it shouldn't hang you up emotionally if your record fails.
I never could get into The Chambers Brothers. They make good records, but I never could get behind it.
I really dig The Byrds. I think they are the most underrated - in their original form - pop group.
I've been with the group since 1965. I will be beginning my fifth year on April ninth this year.
