Mike Love

Unleash The LoveMike Love returned to the show to talk about his new solo album “Unleash The Love.”  It’s a double set featuring unreleased songs and a bonus disc with new versions of Beach Boys classics.   We discussed why these songs remained unreleased for so long, learning Transcendental Meditation from the Maharishi, traveling to India with the Beatles, and why Mike and George Harrison are Pisces Brothers. Plus: why the Beach Boys and the Beatles never worked together or did a co-headlining tour.

mike-loveIt was an honor to chat with Mike Love about his memoir, “Good Vibrations:  My Life as a Beach Boy.”  We discussed the 50th anniversary of “Good Vibrations,”  why he (literally) didn’t get credited as one of rock’s best lyricists, his gift for unforgettable hooks, and his thoughts on today’s music scene.  As a huge fan of The Beach Boys (I wrote & recorded a song about my love for them), it was also an incredible thrill when Mike sang a few bars of my favorite Beach Boys song, “I Get Around.”
