The Beach Boys’ Mike Love Set For Grammy Museum Chat
The Beach Boys‘ Mike Love will appear at L.A.’s Grammy Museum for a special event promoting the band’s latest archival box set, Sail On Sailor – 1972, which drops on December 2nd.
On November 16th, Love will be in conversation with Beach Boys creative consultant Howie Edelson as they discuss the group’s legendary early-’70s period, which saw the band produce two of their most progressive sets — 1972’s Carl And The Passions – “So Tough” and the following year’s Holland, with the evening also including the world premiere of Sail On, an animated short film.

Mike Love recalled how the band shook up its Bel Air-based studio operations in order to record for the first time in Europe: “I know Holland was quite the exercise. I mean (our manager), Jack Rieley said, ‘Let’s go over to Holland,’ and we rented houses and we stayed there for six months. And it had to have been a very expensive album because we brought all kinds of equipment over, set up in a farmhouse — that was our studio. I enjoyed it myself, personally. It was interesting musically, I thought.”
