$76 x 750 tickets = $57,000. Divide by 8 guys in the picture = $7,125 each before expenses. They will not get rich at that rate.

You left out original member Al Jardine, who was with the band for 40 years. Great harmony singer and rhythm guitarist best known for Help Me Rhonda, Wild Honey, Come and Go With Me, Sloop John B, Girl Don't Tell Me and many others.

Since: Jun 09

Off the Beach Boys in Concert (1972). Better than any studio version. One of the best songs of all time.

Papa Doo Run Run played free on the beach the other week and they sure did sound good. Second best thing outside of the Beach Boys I think.... Check them out someday if you can.

Great. If you loved bubble gum rock and stuck your head in the sand wihen our souls were being moved by the power of folk.

I know. Waaaaaay tooooo deep for far too many to comprehend.

The Beach Boys are not today what they were yesterday. Maybe two remaining members that need extensive feedback to reincarnate their sounds of the 60's and 70's.
