It's possible that Bill Wyman was the best musician in the band for many, many years while the others were catching up.

Gerry, indeed. One of the Sun singles. I forget if A or B side.

Re: Beach Boys 60th. Nothing is set in stone for these concerts, Al Jardine mentioned it in a recent interview but that's it. And the word is they would be "tribute" concerts, which to me suggests other artists doing karaoke as the actual Beach Boys do backup vocals or less. Not as excited for that possibility...

I thought the doc spent ample time on the early hits by the Bee Gees (no apostrophe is needed here) and sound and the impasse that followed. Sure, it could have been more exhaustive, but the subject wasn't the band's discography.

The Brood is pre-Scanners Cronenberg, so if you like his stuff you should like The Brood. Baron is a Fuller flick; the 2nd he both wrote and directed.
