What can I say about Saturday night’s Beach Boys concert other than “WOW!” As Steve Goddard wrote in his blog, they promised 50 songs for the 50th Anniversary. And, that’s exactly what we got! Some of them, I’d never even heard before. So, not only was the concert entertaining. it was educational!
One song stood out for me, personally. It’s been my absolute favorite from the group from the very first time I heard it on the radio. That would be “God Only Knows.” If you’re wondering who sang lead, you will be shocked to find out it was Carl Wilson! Thanks to the magic of video, the late Beach Boy STILL handled lead vocals.
I’m not sure if I was allowed to shoot video of the performance. But, I did anyway. Do you think anyone would believe I was filming for the PBS Documentary from the second-to-top row of section 212? That’s my story, and I’m stickin’ to it! Enjoy this before it gets pulled from the internet:
