Video Du Jour: The Beach Boys (on ’60 Minutes’ Australia)

Posted in Rock Moment with tags , , , , on July 7, 2012 by 30daysout

One of us recently had the pleasure of working with Allison Langdon, a host and reporter for “60 Minutes” in Australia. The other one of us wasn’t so lucky. The quote of the year has to be: “You sure don’t look like Morley Safer.”

Nevertheless, when Allison and her crew were in Houston they also met up with the Beach Boys to tape an interview and some of their concert at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. Nice report but a few nitpicks: almost no mention of Carl Wilson … “Kokomo” is the Beach Boys’ biggest hit? And that bit with Mike Love at the end … crikey!
