MIKE LOVE RAILS AGAINST REP AS BEACH BOYS VILLAIN

He blames the former manager for scamming him out of songwriting credits and publishing royalties for decades.
26 Sep 2016 – 4:15 PM EDT

Beach Boys frontman Mike Love will make a book tour appearance tomorrow night (September 27th) in Colorado Springs, Colorado at Colorado College. Love is plugging his autobiography, Good Vibrations: My Life As A Beach Boy, which he wrote with author James S. Hirsch. Love's book recounts "America's Band" from its pre-fame inception to the group's ill-fated 2012 reunion tour and beyond.

The book sheds important new light on Love's take on the group's history, yet reads as if he inked the book deal to settle old scores. He's self-depreciating when it comes to his nearly constant failed efforts at long-term relationships, but on the flip side, blames his first cousins and bandmates; his primary competitor, the late- Dennis Wilson for nearly ruining the group's career, and Brian Wilson for scamming him out of songwriting credits and publishing royalties for decades.


  • Mike Love told us that his clean living, Transcendental Meditation-practicing lifestyle was frowned upon by his bandmates and others in the 1970's: "Some people chose the lifestyle choices that I didn't choose -- nor did Al (Jardine), nor did Bruce (Johnston). And others did. So there was, sort of a. . . hiptsters would look at things, like, I wasn't cool, 'cause I didn't do LSD (laughs). Or, I didn't do the cocaine, or I didn't do the stuff that so many people in that era did at that time. And so, at one time, I noted in the book, that we would take two separate jets -- (the) 'smokers jet' and a 'non-smokers' jet. And the 'smokers' was a euphemism for something else." :
