    DON'T BE SILLY!! BLAME IT ALL ON THE BEACH BOYS!!:

    Friday, December 02, 2011

    DON'T BE SILLY!! BLAME IT ALL ON THE BEACH BOYS!!:
    Ok, now it's just getting silly. Rolling Stone magazine journalist Andy Greene is reporting that the "iconic band" that was set to appear at the Grammy Nominations concert was infact the Beach Boys!
    Here's what has been written today:
    "What happened? "There was the expectation that the artist involved and we would be ready to announce," Grammy President Neil Portnow told the Telegraph. "We were genuine about the intention and discussion, but the time frame has moved."
    Many people thought that Van Halen was supposed to be the band, largely due to the fact that the Grammys sent out this not-so-subtle Tweet on November 3rd: "Who do u predict the reuniting band will be @ GRAMMYnoms? Does this hint make u wanna 'Jump' & 'Dance The Night Away?'" This seemed to confirm beyond any doubt that Van Halen was the band, but what many people missed is that the Tweet also linked to a Hitfix story that guessed it was Van Halen. The fine folks at the Grammys merely sent out that Tweet to get people talking, and the Van Halen song titles were a reference to the HitFix prediction. They wanted to open up a whole Twitter-wide guessing game.
    Unfortunately, all it did was make everyone think that Van Halen were locked in. According to industry sources I've spoken to, Van Halen were never - at any point - lined up to appear at the Grammys special.
    It's hard to be 100 percent certain, but I'm extremely confident that it was supposed to be the Beach Boys. Their 50th anniversary reunion tour this summer is one of the worst-kept secrets in the music business right now. The Los Angeles Times agrees with my assessment. "Sources close to the show said that talks with the band reportedly the Beach Boys fell apart in the 48 hours leading up to the nomination show," the paper reported this morning. "There's hope, however, that the Beach Boys will still be available for the Feb. 12 Grammy Awards."

    Give me a break!
    The Beach Boys? Are you serious?!! I might be willing to accept this but for two glaring points that simply don't stack up.
    1 - This rumor was widely reported in nation and international press for weeks now. No one in the Van Halen camp thought it worthy of shooting down? Why not? They have shot down just about everything else in the past decade. Allowing this rumor to whip fans into a frenzy for so long without saying a word - if they were not ever involved - is simply a monstrous disrespect and dereliction of duty of care to long suffering fans.
    2 - What of this Grammy sent tweet - "@ #GRAMMYnoms? Does this hint make u wanna 'Jump' & 'Dance the Night Away'?"
    Now, forgive my possible ignorance here, but I'm not aware of ANY other act that has ever had two hit songs called Jump and Dance The Night Away! Now, if the tweet had read something like "Does this make you want to 'Dance, Dance, Dance'...'It's About Time'?", then one could be forgiven for mixing the two bands up. (Dance Dance Dance being a Beach Boys 1964 hit and It's About Time being a 1992 album cut, and a 2004 Van Halen w/Sammy cut!).

    Like I said yesterday, this will al be brushed aside as if it was never planned. Van Halen are unlikely to appear at the Grammy's Feb 12, as why would that organization go through all this again? Ok, time to just accept this and move on..

    You know the Beach Boys explanation actually makes a bit of sense- more sense actually than a VH "reunion". There is no reunion for the VH brothers with Roth, it already happened a few years ago. But have the surviving Beach Boys ever gotten back together yet in any recent decade with Brian Wilson? Without googling it, I seem to recall that Brian Wilson had to be under the care of a full time specialist for quite some time. It would seem to me that this is iconic band which will be reuniting at the February show, ahead of their 50th anniversary summer tour. Both the Beach Boys and VH would have looked silly on that Grammy show however.

    Now that being said, *someone* in the VH camp with access to the internet had to know that rumors were being spread like wildfire about their making an appearance and they should have shot them down right away. Extremely wealthy people operate in their own world however, surrounded by yes men and detached from reality. The band members themselves might have believed only a handful of fans thought they would appear. Nah, scratch that, Wolfgang had to know that these Grammy appearance rumors were huge.

    OK. I think most of us really wanted to believe and bit off on the first rumor this caused. This is merely an extension of that in a desperate attempt to fuel a stupid rumor mill. I'm not biting this one.
