Former Beach Boys and current Brian Wilson side man Jeffrey Foskett left this post on one of the message boards yesterday.

Posted by Jeffrey Foskett on March 15, 1999

Yes, It’s really me and I am breaking one of my Cardinal rules by posting something on the Internet. I wanted to accomplish a couple things. I will start by saying that I truly appreciate all of your support not only at the shows but especially on this message board. It means a great deal to all of us on the road and mostly to Brian. Friends of mine have been FAXING me daily reviews
and quotes posted by you folks and I have been passing them around. Everyone Involved in the tour is thrilled at the response. On stage it is fantastic to see such enthusiasm in the audience and then to have it verified by the people that were in attendance is even better. Thank you very much! I will now address a couple of questions that we have read:

1. Yes, Brian’s keyboard is plugged in and he does play it on most songs.
2. The TelePrompTer is for Brian’s song list only. No lyrics were scrolled on the screens. I know, I
was standing next to him on stage.
3. The musicians were:

Brian Wilson - Piano and Vocals
Joe Thomas - Piano, Organ, and Vocals
Jeffrey Foskett - Guitar and Vocals
Todd Sucherman - Drums (Wow! What a great drummer)
Bob Lizik - Bass
Paul Mertens - Woodwinds and Harmonica
The Fabulous Wondermints:
Darian Sahanaja - Keyboards, Vibrophone and
Vocals
Nik Wonder - Guitar and Vocals (Great solo on
"Pet Sounds")
Mikey D’Amico - Percussion and Vocals
Probyn Gregory - Guitar, French Horn, Trumpet
and Vocals
The two background singers were Taylor Mills
and Scott Bennett

If you were fortunate enough to see the Rosemont or Milwaukee show you would have seen both Jim Peterik and Chuck Solmar from the Ides Of March sit in. Popular Chicago based DJ Steve Dahl played each show. He added Guitar and Theramin. Our fabulous soundman was Frank Pappalardo and our Lighting Director was Dave Ambroglio. Our entire crew was top notch and
all of the shows ran very smoothly. I think this would be a great time to say that every fan of Brian’s owes Joe Thomas a very big thank you for co-producing the "Imagination" CD and for getting Brian to sing in his Falsetto voice again. He was instrumental in putting this tour together and hey, he had the good sense to hire me! Also, I must mention how happy Brian is. At the end of the tour dinner last night he said he has rarely been more content than now. I think that Melinda and his two daughters have a great deal to do with this.

Here is a review from the Detroit News of Brian's opening night concert in Ann Arbor.
Beach Boy opening is a hit.
By Wendy Case / The Detroit News
   ANN ARBOR -- The first date on former Beach Boy Brian Wilson's four-date solo
 tour began Tuesday night at the Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor.  It started with a 23-minute film tribute to Wilson, comprised of past and present interviews with family and fellow musicians. The audience clapped riotously during the film, especially for segments featuring Wilson's late brothers and bandmates Dennis and Carl Wilson.
                         At the end of the film, the screen raised, revealing Wilson's 13-piece backing band which included co-producer Joe Thomas, California band The Wondermints and longtime
                     Beach Boys sideman, guitarist Jeff Foskett.  Wilson, 57, took the stage and the band launched into an early Beach Boys track, Little Girl I Once Knew. It was an unusual choice for an opening number and it was followed by an even more eclectic set featuring a mix of obscure Beach Boys tracks, like This Whole  World, numerous hits and a few tracks from Wilson's recent solo album, Imagination.   Wilson's performance was much better than most people probably expected. His voice, while not as acrobatic as in his youth (Foskett handled some of the more extreme falsetto),   was clear and in control.  It was a very admirable performance.
What was truly astounding, though, was the show's production.  The band was letter-perfect, delivering a majestic and surprisingly organic rendition of Wilson's songs. And the sound in the Michigan Theater was phenomenal.  Closing with Fun, Fun, Fun, Wilson and Co. left the stage to a deafening standing ovation.

Another review of the concert  from Wall Of Sound

A pre-concert party is scheduled from 5:30-7:30pm at MacKenzie's Pub, 918 Hennepin Avenue, Minneapolis (nearly across the street from The State Theatre and next door to the Orpheum Theatre.)  It's intimate, classy, and not too smoky :) .

Let's celebrate the SPIRIT OF ROCK AND ROLL!!!

Update on the upcoming reissue series by Capitol. Previous reports of the release date being moved back to the fall are only somewhat true. According to Capitol, as of today , they are awaiting management approval, thus NO release date has been scheduled yet, making it possible that they may still be out before fall or not. Any other dates mentioned previously were more hopeful speculation than anything.

The program "Rock and Roll Moments" shown earlier this week on The Learning Channel ,featuring a segment on the Beach Boys, is not scheduled to be rebroadcast anytime before April. The next scheduled showings are on April 11 at 8PM and again at 11PM Eastern Time.

Pollstar, the concert tour website, today updated the tour schedule for
Brian's Tour to the following:

03/09/99 Ann Arbor MI Michigan Theater
03/10/99 Rosemont IL Rosemont Theatre
03/12/99 Milwaukee WI Pabst Theater
03/13/99 Minneapolis MN,State Theatre

There is no other info on any of the other dates that were previously
announced, though Ticketmaster still has the Feb 24 show in New York and the Feb 27 show in Pittsburgh still listed and apparently are selling
tickets. I believe Pollstar is usually pretty accurate. Obviously this
whole tour gets more confusing and bizarre with each new day.   What maybe a silver lining in a dark cloud is that they didn't cancel
everything.

Anyone with  tickets for any of the shows should call the venue as often as
possible.

Tonight begins the Whiskey A Go Go 35th Anniversary celebration. All the festivies can be heard on a live webcast that can be accessed at the http://Whisky35.com/website. For more details please scroll further down this page.

More accolades for Brian Wilson's "Imagination' This time from MSNBC, listing Imagation as one of the TOP albums of 1998 .Here is what they have to say about it.

 Brian Wilson, “Imagination” (Giant)
   From the opening moments of the purely infectious first song, “Your Imagination,” it is clear that the wave is breaking perfectly for the former Beach Boy. Wilson’s trademark harmonies have rarely, if ever, sounded better. Sharing production with Joe Thomas, Wilson turns in a series of standouts, including the gentle acoustic and electric blend “Cry,” the harmony-filled collaboration with J.D. SoutherWhere Has Love Been?,” and a wild, weird, occasionally dissonant gem of a finale, “Happy Days.” Yet
the highlight of the disc may be “Lay Down Your Burden,” an ode to Wilson’s recently deceased brother Carl.
Here is the complete list of Top Albums of 1998 as chosen by MSNBC

  Billy Bragg and Wilco, “Mermaid Avenue”
 Aretha Franklin, “A Rose Is Still a Rose”
 Patty Griffin, “Flaming Red”
   P.J. Harvey, “Is This Desire?”
 Lauryn Hill, “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill”
Hole, “Celebrity Skin”
Michael Jones, "Originality"
Mary Lou Lord, “Got No Shadow”
 Lyle Lovett, “Step Inside This House”
  Liz Phair, “Whitechocolatespaceegg”
  Pulp, “This Is Hardcore”
 R.E.M., “Up”
Semisonic, “Feeling Strangely Fine”
 Elliott Smith, “XO”
 Rufus Wainwright, “Rufus Wainwright”
 Lucinda Williams, “Car Wheels on a Gravel Road”
Brian Wilson, “Imagination”
