Brian Wilson has said he is considering reforming with the surviving members of The Beach Boys to celebrate their 50th anniversary.

Wilson, who said last week that he was planning to retire from performing live in 2012, told BBC 6Music he is thinking playing with his old band again for the first time in almost 20 years.

Asked about whether he would play as part of The Beach Boys again, Wilson replied: “I’m considering it. I don’t know yet but I’m considering it. Nothing’s really holding me back. I just don’t know if I want to be around those guys you know. They’re zany guys. They’re crazy.”

Wilson last performed with The Beach Boys during the making of their 1996 album ‘Stars And Stripes Vol.1’ and has toured as a solo artist since.

He performs in the UK this summer as part of his ‘Brian Wilson Reimagines Gershwin’ tour, which will see him playing songs by American songwriter George Gershwin as well as his own material. He tours the UK in September.
