In preparation for their 50th anniversary concert tour, founding member and professional asshat Mike Love dumps three founding members through a press release, rather than in person. One of those members? Brain Wilson, who singlehandedly invented their sound. They just got him back after decades of issues between the members, and they decide to drop the resident eccentric genius through a public statement.

I'm hoping that the resulting ticket sales will end up as a post in the "Celebrity Schadenfreude" thread.

Mike Love has been a shitheel for decades and it hasn't affected the Beach Boys concert ticket sales, but hopefully the publicity from this story might have an impact.

Considering that many were buying tickets (or planning on buying tickets) for a chance to see the surviving original members together, I suspect that a bit of a backlash may be on its way.

He...dumped Brian Wilson? How is that even possible? Mike Love might have the most ironic name ever. Mike Bunghole is far more apt.

I do not understand why they are still touring. The last time I saw them perform, I think on the Grammys, was the creepiest thing ever. They really cannot carry off the young love songs anymore. Mike love was making this come hither hand gesture that made me die a little bit inside. They need to hang it up, for the sake of everybody's sanity.

Mike Love is such a tool. I once saw him in the airport in Atlanta wearing a pink satin jacket with a big "BEACH BOYS" emblazoned across the back.

Which is just sad, now that I think about it.

Real men wear pink. So does Mike Love. Unfortunately.

Oh, I had no issue with the color. It was the fact that he was advertising his own group in huge letters on the back of his jacket, like just in case someone didn't recognize him or something.

I don't know...maybe it was just me.

Oh, I never thought you had a problem with the jacket's color! Sorry if it came off that way. I just always think "Real men wear pink" whenever I see or hear of a guy dressed in pink. Most guys can actually pull off that hue well, but Mike Love's jacket just sounds tacky and atrocious.

I saw the Beach Boys open for Chicago years ago. John Stamos was the drummer. Now I sincerely wish to see a press release saying that John Stamos is kicking Mike Love out of the Beach Boys.

And I want a judge to rule that it is totally okay for Brian Wilson to tell Mike Love that he can't sing any Brian Wilson songs any more.

I would love to be present at such a ruling, dinahmoe.

It really does disgust me that he performs Brian Wilson's songs. He should be forced to do remixes of Kokomo.

But that hurts everyone else in the process.

This thread is starting to make me LOL. Does that mean Mike Love does actually help make the world a little brighter? Say it ain't so!

Obviously you don't fire Brian Wilson from The Beach Boys by press release or in private but I am curious can he still perform? I was recently watching the Kennedy Honors he was on and his face appeared to be a mask incapable of real movement and the rest of his body seemed the same. Just wondering.

Mike Love is a douche regardless.

He can sing and play the music. Hes not a hugely lively presence but his voice is still there.

Hes an interesting case. I have that book Neil Strauss did with all his unedited articles and he did one with Brian Wilson and his wife on Rolling Stone. Hes very in and out. Hes sometimes extremely sharp, sometimes drifting in the past. Spends most of his time with his younger kids now. But apparently he comes alive and is completely savanty about music still.

Ha! When I told my husband about the fired-by-press-release thing, he said, "every time I see Mike Love he's wearing his Beach Boys hat, so it must means he owns them, right?"

That whole jacket and hat thing is sad. What a desperate cry for attention and relevance.

If I ever bump into him while he's in them, I'm going to run right up to the man and say "Wow! Are you Brian Wilson?" And when he says no, I'm going to turn away downcast.

The Beach Boys are basically the only relevent thing hes ever done and I think he has severe issues due to being the superfluous one. Like Dennis Wilson's skeletal remains are contributing more to the Beach Boys at this moment then Mike Love ever did artistically. So God damn it he is going to ring the most money he can out of them by virtue of being the least drug addled and the most mercenary.

Seems to me that one of his daughters hooked up with Dennis Wilson, and later died of liver failure because she couldn't afford the drugs or a transplant or something. She asked her father for the money but he wouldn't give it to her.
