So that's what they looked like!,

This review is from: Beach Boys - Live at Knebworth [DVD]  (DVD)
I was in the crowd at this concert, but the Beach Boys were distant, brightly lit dots. The music is great, but having just watched this dvd, I'm really glad I was not in the front row - the temptation to throw something would have been irresistible. That voice, those hand gestures, that cap...that's where the two stars have gone! They were never the coolest band sartorially, and it is 1980, so everyone is very beardy; but Brian and Dennis (both looking pretty wasted) look as if they have just wandered in off the set of 'Easy Rider' while the other four are dressed like Abba's backing band. Hats off to Carl though, he plays and sings his heart out, and is worth the admission price on his own. It would have been good to hear some of his old songs here: 'Feel Flows' and 'Trader' are brilliant - anything would be preferable to a forty-something singing 'Be True to your School!' I bought the dvd as a keepsake, but for the above reasons you might be better off with the CD!
