I've been a fan since day one, so much so, in fact, that I've written an homage in the form of a sequel (to "Your Summer Dream") in honor of the BB's 50th anniversary. It wasn't easy, but I believe I've captured something timeless and essential with it. I sent an mp3 to Elliott Lott, but haven't heard back from him. Has he played "On The Beach" for you? If not, you really should hear it. You're free to do what you want with it (rewrite, rearrange, publish, et al), as long as I get a writers share. In closing, l want to wish you all the best of luck, and I hope to see you this summer. Mahalo.
