Wow, I read that article. Sounds like Dennis Wilson was a HUGE LOSER - Beach Boy or not! Surprising that Lindsey still wrote a moving song in his honor even after he banged Lindsey's girlfriend. But it seems everyone let Dennis get away with murder.

There were times when he looked mighty endearing, w/ that scruffiness to him.... There's a hot picture of him inside Pacific Ocean Blue that I should get Marty to help me post here. He's shirtless but wearing overalls, and has a really good body. Not that he was gorgeous, but I can see what Chris saw in him. Physically, at least!

Yeah I was the one that transcribed that whole thing, yikes was that tedious! That 'cow' comment was pretty awful. I can't imagine that was the type of interaction they had when things were good for them though! I hope not anyway. That interview was done at a really weird time shortly after the splits, but I think it offers a good peek at how things had deteriorated. I think John's other comments about 'being living proof that there is life after death' and 'is there sex after death?' are pretty revealing of how he was hurting at the time.

I have that Laura Gross interview on CD. The "cow" comment really surprised me. John was obviously drunk. I don't think he ever would have said that to Chris if he were sober. Actually, John does have quite a bit to say in this interview. Now days, he hardly ever says a word.

Wow, the "cow" comment is really low. That really took me by surprise. He had to be drunk in this interview... John seems too nice to say something like that while sober. Thank God he's all right now.

That was just staged. They were poking fun at the tabloid aspect of their reputation at that time, which was building in intensity. John & Christine took the ball & ran with it for a bit; they're both inclined to brittle, depreciating humor (we should spell it humour because it's so definably British). That was Laura's actual impression of it all.

Yeah, I agree w/ everything above. Although you can certainly hear the hurt behind the humour IMO. I don't think John was drunk at all, actually, he was far too well spoken throughout the rest of the interview!

Years later in a 1987 joint interview w/ Stevie and John, Laura reminded them that she had done that interview back in 1976 right after all the splits, and John was so intrigued by that! He kept asking her, "How was it? Do you still have it? How was it?" I wonder if he ever heard it, it seemed like he really wanted a copy LOL.

He actually said something so similar in 1997 regarding the 'shut up' comment-- I think it was at the end of a VH1 Timeline special-- and the 5 of them were sitting there and Chris was saying how years ago 'there was animosity hanging around the two ex-couples' and John interjects in almost a whisper, "Oh, shut up, kid!" and she says, "YOU know what I mean!" while M, L and S all laugh. I think that's just the way John is, a bit rough around the edges sometimes but really a big softie.

I approve of very little that Dennis did in his private life but his music was very often tremendously beautiful, either in an uplifting way or in a depressing way. Just listen to the Beach Boys' "Forever" or Pacific Ocean Blue (long out of print, btw) and it's hard to believe a person like that did such music. But as one reviewer once said in his review of POB: "it's one thing to elevate yourself to the level of abstract beauty and Love, and another thing to practice the same on your everyday level. But you knew that, didn't you?".

OK, finally got Marty to do this for me, as I am an idiot w/ computers.

The first one I just thought was a hot picture of Dennis. He had a certain something about him. :-)

The other one-- isn't that a riot? Pretty scary in a way. There are certainly similarities betwen John and Dennis; they are literally dressed in the same clothes LOL. Dennis just forgot to put on his suspenders.

I think John had the most attractive face. Very cool features... A little asymmetrical but still appealling. Even now, look at his face on Say You Will, so striking! Great cheekbones, I'm a sucker for cheekbones. And *such* a warm smile and eyes, his whole face softens when he smiles.

Curry....he was OK, but not all that IMO.

Dennis-- He was OK too. Some years he looked better than others. Also had a great smile.

Eddy-- The least attractive, IMO. Quite frankly, I could never see what she saw in him... he always looked sort of greasy and icky.
