     Hey, Folks, it's Lonesome Dave signing on for the very first time.  I brought my adult son and significant other to the Brian Wilson Christmas Show in December.  Loved it, in the most melancholy way.
     Now go ahead and call me crazy, folks.  But wouldn't it be crazy to see Brian and the Beach Boys reunite (yet again) to perform next year's Super Bowl Halftime Show?  I think they could pull it off, and I think the place would flip!

I love Brian and Al along with his band but no there isn’t any chance of that happening.
We’re living in the past, people don’t like harmony anymore and it makes me sad.

this post bothers me...because it's partially true, no doubt.  in numbers you mean--the comment about the mass not caring about harmony (like previous generations).

My concern is that even though a lot of older people watch TV and buy products, we're like families that still take their kids to play tackle football.  The NFL thinks they have us without any effort on their part.  It's the younger people they are reaching out to--who don't even watch TV anymore and who have been fooled into playing flag by nanny state bosses. 

Plus, can you imagine if the Boys were really on?  They would have to do only the most Mike Love approved tracks, and (and to make it more spectacle: well, like the Mike and Stamos band used to do in front of a Baywatch setting and so forth.  It would be 'don't ef with the formula, but in vulgar capital letters.  Fans like us would hate it and Brian would suffer.  and the nowadays twitter/troll/you know who culture, that hates EVERYTHING, laughs when people get sick, and so forth, I mean, who can hate Adam Levine??  It would be ugly.  For the Superbowls from about 1968--1981 or so?  Sure, but those shows were never hip.  Nowadays?  I vote no.

One never knows what will come of the future just from what we were hearing tonight at Al Jardine's show.  Will there ever be another come together of the Beach Boys?  

The Super Bowl would be the wrong venue as it's now a generational thing.  Halftime is the time to get away from watching/listening to whatever "show" that they put on - like this year.  The cartoons built in - all of the make this a "hip" show (whatever word that you want to use) - that is really just a spectacle -not musical. The Grammy's are similar.  It's all many generations ago.  Now if the BB's ever could get something happening NOW - different story all-together. It would never happen.  But something else?  What and when?  Let's see.

The myth of the boys being a surf band only group would only be reinforced if that assclown got on stage with a hasbeen actor. The casual music fan will never know how progressive and great this band was or the talent of Carl and Dennis picking up after Brian was emotionally destroyed.

It would be embarrassing and unlistenable but that’s never stopped Mike before if he had a chance to make a buck but seriously no promoter of the SuperBowl is going to put this group out there, it isn’t happening.
