Published May 16, 2011Most people with a cursory knowledge of the Beach Boys know that the relationship between the band and principal songwriter Brian Wilson has been fractured for years. He's come and gone from the band's ranks since the '60s, having not performed with the group since the mid-'90s, but with the outfit's 50th anniversary looming, Wilson is considering playing with his old buds again.
A recent interview had the songwriter contemplating whether or not he would hop onstage with Mike Love, Al Jardine or Bruce Johnston. Wilson hasn't said yes, but he hasn't said no either.
"I'm considering it," he told BBC 6 Music. "I don't know yet but I'm considering it... Nothing's really holding me back. I just don't know if I want to be around those guys, you know. They're zany guys. They're crazy."
While Wilson hasn't been in the studio with the group proper since he co-produced 1996's Stars and Stripes Volume One, he did sing back-up with Jardine, Love and Johnston on Jardine's solo number, "Don't Fight the Sea."
God only knows if the reunion will happen for sure, but we're keeping our fingers crossed there will be some good vibrations coming from the Beach Boys sometime soon.
