For many years I aided Andrew Doe in compiling the Tours & Sessions section of his great Beach Boys’ site Bellagio 10452. (http://esquarterly.com/bellagio/index.html). I then co-authored the book The Beach Boys in Concert: The Ultimate History of America’s Band on Tour and Onstage (Backbeat Books, 2013) with Jon Stebbins. In the course of my research I compiled thousands of advertisements, images and information and conducted numerous interviews. Due to the nature of the publishing world, only a small fraction of this information appeared in my book, so I see this site as a chance to share more of the knowledge and information I acquired in what I hope will be an engaging format.
It is not the intention of this site to take the place of Andrew Doe’s great site, which I continue to contribute to. If you want to know the date of any gig or session please continue to look there.
