Mike Love

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.”
