Brian Wilson: It ‘Feels Like We’re Being Fired’

In response to Mike Love’s long, defensive letter about how he did not fire Brian Wilson and the rest of the Beach Boys, Wilson has written a long, kind of defensive letter about how he knows he didn’t get fired, but it felt like being fired. Another money quote: “While I appreciate the nice cool things Mike said about me in his letter, and I do and always will love him as my cousin and bandmate, at the same time I'm still left wondering why he doesn't want to continue this great trip we're on. Al and I want to keep going because we believe we owe it to the music.”  Yeah, Mike Love, what about the music?
