A petition that’s making the rounds encourages people to boycott the Beach Boys. The man behind the petition? Beach Boys founder Brian Wilson.
Wilson says he has an issue with an upcoming appearance by Mike Love’s version of the Beach Boys, which are scheduled to perform at the Nevada Safari Club International Convention in Reno. “This organization supports trophy hunting, which both Al Jardine and I are emphatically opposed to,” Wilson says. He’s encouraging fans to sign a petition at Change.org that calls for a boycott of Beach Boys music until the show is canceled.
Neither Love nor Safari Club officials have commented on the proposed boycott.
Should Mike Love even be allowed to call his band “The Beach Boys?” Shouldn’t Brian Wilson at least have the power to veto this performance?
