Brian Wilson has refuted claims that he we will rejoin The Beach Boys and head out on the road with them on their 50th anniversary world tour next year.
Mike Love, Al Jardine and Bruce Johnston have planned a huge global tour for 2012, but former chief songwriter Wilson has revealed that he will not be taking part, despite former confessions that he was ‘considering’ it.
In an interview with Q magazine, Wilson said: “There’s been talk that I was going to join the Mike Love group but it’s not true.” However, even though he says he doesn’t really like working with his old band, “it all depends on how we feel and how much money’s involved. Money’s not the only reason I made records, but it does hold a place in our lives.”
Brian Wilson releases ‘In The Key Of Disney’, an album of cover versions of songs from classic animated Disney films, including Dumbo, The Jungle Book and The Lion King on October 24. The Beach Boys will also release their ‘lost’ album ‘Smile’ on October 31.
