Surf and turf tumult as BEACH BOYS meltdown amidst claims MIKE LOVE deep-sixed music guru BRIAN WILSON.
Mike Love issued a fiery op-ed in the pages of the LA Times saying he didn’t fire Wilson – yet BB co-founder Wilson and longtime members Al Jardine and David Marks are no longer touring with the iconic iconic 1960s surf band.
Brian Wilson, however, was pretty pissed offt hat Mike Love and Bruce Johnston would the anniversary tour without other key bandmates.
"I'm disappointed and can't understand why (Love) doesn't want to tour with Al, David and me,” Brian Wilson had told CNN . “We are out here having so much fun. After all, we are the REAL Beach Boys!"
Fed up with all the BAD VIBRATIONS coming from livid fans and die-hard rock journos, Mike Love got busy.
“I did not fire Brian Wilson from the Beach Boys,” Love wrote in the Los Angeles Times.
“I cannot fire Brian Wilson from the Beach Boys. I am not his employer. I do not have such authority. And even if I did, I would never fire Brian Wilson from the Beach Boys. I love Brian Wilson.
“Like any good party, no one wanted it to end. However, that was impossible, given that we had already set up shows in smaller cities with a different configuration of the band — the configuration that had been touring together every year for the last 13 years," Love stated via his mouthpiece, the LA Times.
"It is not feasible, both logistically and economically, for the 50th anniversary tour to play these markets."
While the Mike Love and Bruce Johnston version of the Beach Boys are still on the road, Brian Wilson, Al Jardine and David Marks – the so-called “Real Beach Boys” — are said to be contemplating some sort of legal action against their former bandmate.
