America's Toastmaster General

From the 1988 Rock n Roll Hall of Fame ceremonies, here's a chance to enjoy the spectacle of Mike Love of The Beach Boys making a braying jackass of himself.

The phrase that immediately comes to mind is -- oy gevalt.

BTW, Love was of course the driving force behind the creation of the Beach Boys masterpiece "Pet Sounds."

To hear him tell it, at least.

No wonder Brian was afraid of Mike.

"Braying jackass" is exactly right.

Hey Steve, how do you feel about Brian's completion of SMiLE? I miss your reviews--you never buried your lead--and would love to know your response to Brian's current work. If you've heard his Christmas album, I'd love to know what you think about that, too.

Rock on.

Love is a wingnut, too, isn't he?
