whitefang Posted June 23, 2016 Share Posted June 23, 2016 Y'all pretty much know I watch that TV show "Pawn Stars". On a show last night, shop owner Rick Harrison mentioned that some guy came in with the surfboard that was the one featured on the cover of the first two BEACH BOYS LPs. So, the resident dumb-ass on the show, Chumley, mentions he wasn't familiar with who they were, and when Rick mentions the song "California Girls", Chum mentions KATY PERRY. When Rick says "No, NOT Katy Perry", Chum then brings up TUPAK. Then later KANYE WEST. Rick says something about those guys using the name of a Beach Boys song. So then, Rick's son COREY, who my wife says reminds her of JABBA THE HUT, claims that The Beach Boys made, "Mindless music for the masses"! The irony for ME was that after the mention of Perry, Tupac and West, it was The Beach Boys that Corey claims made the "mindless music for the masses." When for ME, the OTHER WAY AROUND is more accurate! Not surprising. Whether planned, scripted or what, Corey often displays an immense ignorance of American music history. And oddly seems to be PROUD of it. Whitefang I started out with NOTHING...and I still have most of it left! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
