The real Beach Boys - meaning, the version of the band that has Brian Wilson in it, and performs Brian Wilson-penned songs, and does not include John Stamos, har har - announced this morning that they would reunite for a new album and a 50-date tour to commemorate the band's 50th anniversary.
Said Wilson in a press release issued by the band's label, EMI/Capitol, "This anniversary is special to me because I miss the boys and it will be a thrill for me to make a new record and be on stage with them again.”
No specific dates on the tour have been announced yet, but keep your fingers crossed for a Buffalo show!
In the meantime, Mike Love, not war!
