The Beach Boys' Mike Love revealed some of the band's plans for its upcoming 60th anniversary. During a chat with In Site Atlanta, Love touched upon a possible project with the group's co-founders Brian Wilson, Al Jardine, David Marks, and longtime member Bruce Johnston.
Love said, “I think there're plans to do something to mark that, but nothing specific as far as touring or anything. But maybe other acts doing our songs, maybe with us, and then so on. Maybe a TV special or something. It should be a lot of fun to bring some of these songs to life, just in different ways.”
He went on to talk about the long-in-the-works new Beach Boys box featuring the band's incredible work between 1969 and 1971, explaining, “There's an album compilation that's due to come out pretty soon called Feel Flows. . . There's such diversity. I love all the original stuff that Brian produced, but then when he — not retired, but receded a little bit from the overall production — it was awfully nice to hear the other guys come forward with some brilliant things. . . Several songs that are completely different in substance and subject matter than what came before. But I think that's all welcome, it's all good. In retrospect, it was quite a diversity of creativity.”
