Surf’s down: No Beach Boys reunion in ’11

One of the most unsurprising revelations of the year emanated today from a publicist for Mike Love, regarding the possibility of a 50th anniversary reunion  of the surviving original Beach Boys during the 2011-12 concert season.

“The Beach Boys continue to tour approximately 150 shows a year in
multiple countries, “Love’ statement said. “At this time there are no plans for my cousin Brian
to rejoin the tour.  He has new solo projects
on the horizon and I wish him love and success.  We have had some
discussions of writing and possibly recording together, but nothing has
been planned.”

Love’s statement came in the wake of a June 17 story by Robin Leach in the Las Vegas Sun, which quoted him directly saying without qualification that Brian would rejoin the band for its half-century celebration.
