    What did you think of the Beachboys tributes and reunion at the 2012 Grammys?

    Having Brian Wilson, Al Jardin, Bruce Johnston,Mike Love, and David Marks together was impressive considering te likelihood of it.

    I didn't know about it but I am a big fan of the band and Pet Sounds is one of my favourite albums.

    My answer: The Beach Boys "say" Perfection. Anytime. Any day. Anywhere. They define my generation. The Boys never fade. Only get higher waves.

    The Beach Boys themselves were a definite highlight.  The two acts allegedly paying "tribute" to them, however, were terrible, especially Foster the People's painfully off-key song.  I wish Glen Campbell had been able to join the Beach Boys onstage, given that he was at one time a member of the band.  (Speaking of Glen, Blake Shelton did well on "Southern Nights," but the earthquake you felt was John Hartford rolling over in his grave over The Band Perry's (is Yoda naming these bands now?  Foster the People?  The Band Perry?) atrocious version of "Gentle on My Mind.")

    I only saw the Beach Boys do "Good Vibrations", and it was wonderful.  The shots of the audience enjoying it showed how well that song was and how much the Boys were appreciated by the newer artists.  Well done!

    I love The Beach Boys. I am an 80's baby but I definitely love how their music is essentially the perfect soundtrack to beach life. About the other two groups, I think Maroon 5 was great but Foster the People, I just don't get their appeal.
