FWIW, I opened up for the Beach Boys a couple of Summers ago and Bruce Johnston was THE nicest guy in the world. He hung out with us, told stories, took photos, etc. And I must say, Mike Love was pretty cool, too. I had a newfound respect for him when I watched the way he worked the crowd. He's nowhere near the best singer in the band (they had the late Jeff Foskett with them doing the most perfect Carl Wilson voice), but Mike Love is an excellent frontman on stage.
