I agree with you, Forshorn. MIke has always been the MC of the group and probably the most devoted member of the band. He continued to make the Beach Boys music available for fans to see in concert when others left for various reasons (mental illness, drugs, inability to tolerate Murry). He lost a lot of money when Murry sold the music and I don't blame him for suing to get the money that was due to him for writing the lyrics. I am a Beach Boys fan and would go see them with or without Brian and Al. I miss Dennis and Carl and know what a fabulous job Carl did keeping the peace in the group. I was thrilled to see the reunion show twice last year and I look forward to going to see Mike and Bruce perform this year. I hate to see all these negative remarks on Mike's fan page. He has been the one and only Beach Boy who has been with the group since it began and I am thrilled that he kept the band alive.
