    Not to get too darned nit-picky about it, but I believe they were called the Pendletones, not Pendletons. But it was indeed an allusion to the Pendleton shirts they sported back then. (I'm something of a Brianista, so this kinda stuff jumps out at me. Sorry.)

    By the way, should you get the chance to see Brian Wilson perform, I'd recommend you do it. It's a lot of fun. Dancing in the aisles and all that. This latest incarnation of the Beach Boys is another matter altogether. As I understand it, it's Mike Love and four guys named Joe.

    Good to hear about Brian. My wife and I saw him 7 or 8 years ago opening for Paul Simon and he seemed petrified to be performing before a live audience and basically hid behind his keyboard.

    I saw the Beach Boys a few times in the early 80's, back when Dennis and Carl were still alive. Not sure I'd want to pay good money to just see Mike Love and his backup band, although if it was cheap enough or free, I'd probably go again.

    Well, Brian has his own ways. His pipes aren't what they were. (But then, whose are?) And he's long been at least a bit awkward in front of a crowd. Way, way back when, Glen Campbell toured with the band, in Brian's stead, while Brian stayed behind working on new material and/or hiding out.

    The couple of times I've seen him perform in recent years, with the Wondermints, he loosened up as the show ran on. He wrote so many big, big hits that it's hard to get what everybody wants to hear into one show. But he manages to hit the audience with one after another after another until they're pretty well worn out by the end. I was most struck by the age span in the audience -- great-grandmas and grandpas and pre-adolescents and everywhere in between.

    Wish I could've caught one of the shows on the "Smile" tour a few years back. The dewy-eyed bride okayed the funds to get me to the nearest stop on the tour -- in San Francisco, as I recall -- but I couldn't see spending that kind of money.

    I saw them at the Long Beach Civic Auditorium in '76; they were great. That was during my Jan and Dean phase, when I wore a white, pull-over shirt with a horizontal, contrasting stripe, along with sneakers and straight-legged cords. Saw them perform on the Sunset Strip in '77; never forget it...

    I'm a Beach Boys connoisseur too, I know exactly what you're talking about. It'd be great to see him perform, he really modernized the band into an experimental, revolutionary (and psychadelic!) group from the former happy surfing girls and cars. I enjoy both stages equally, and really like Pet Sounds and Smiley Smile. Can't believe I misspelled Pendeltone!

    Mike Love ruined the band. Big ego and tried to get all the rights to the songs completely he just helped with a bit. It seems everyone on youtube hates him in the Beach Boys videos comments!

    When Brian was trying to move the band in a more modern (less juvenile) direction, it was Mike Love who opposed him, insisting that they should continue churning out songs about cars and surfing. While some of us can sympathize with Mike's desire to keep the Beach Boys the Beach Boys, Brian's ideas were based on a more realistic perception of the changing times.

These rust "Beach Boy Pattern" Pendletons should be arriving around November, to Greenspan's, South Gate, CA www.greenspans.com This is a preview of how they look:


    There are more patterns to be seen on the Greenspan's myspace page at www.myspace.com/greenspans, in the album entitled: A Preview of Spring 2011 Pendleton wool flannel board shirts
