Brian Wilson says ‘no’ to another Beach Boys reunion

Brian Wilson has said that he doubts there will be another reunion of The Beach Boys. Wilson was speaking on Sunday (February 10) at the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles. When asked about the possibility of a reunion - following last year's 50th anniversary tour dates and the release of a brand new album 'That's Why God Made The Radio' - Wilson told the press room: "No, I don't think so. Doubt it."

The reunited Beach Boys' new concert DVD is reviewed in the latest issue of Uncut (dated January 2013, out now) – so it seemed like a good time to revisit this fascinating piece from our October 2006 issue (Take 113). We were talking to Wilson, primarily, to discuss the 40th anniversary of Pet Sounds, reissued in deluxe format that month. But Wilson agreed to revisit five other pivotal Beach Boys albums, too. “If you’re a young guy or girl going out and buying Pet Sounds for the first time, you’re gonna be knocked out when you hear it, right?” Words: Rob Hughes
