Worth the read for all Brian's fans - Jeff McEvoy (aka Biggie) has been Brian's official tour photographer for twenty years.  Nice story about him, his dad, and his years with Brian:

This is good -

“I tell people, don’t expect to see Brian Wilson from 1964 singing the high parts to ‘Don’t Worry, Baby.’ If you’re a purist, you want to see all those instruments. You want to see six different tambourines, a bass harmonica, with no pre-recorded keyboard tracks. He may close his eyes and feel the music and sounds. He may look like he’s lost, and sometimes he may not even sing. But the beauty is, you’re getting a chance to see the man enjoy the music he created.”

Jeff shared this to the Brian Wilson Tour page on Facebook. A fascinating read. I particularly love the bit you quoted.

“I told Brian that the music was so beautiful, the way the melodies were put together,” Blair said. “This music will be playing 200 years from now.”

Truer words were never spoken. Wonderful article, thanks for posting. This was an absolute pleasure to read, it felt like being there. I'm glad Brian has such great folks around him. (BTW, Merry Christmas everyone!)
