Recently, the BBC Twitter account posted this LONG LOST interview with Carl Wilson of The Beach Boys on The Old Grey Whistle Test from May 1, 1973. This is a holy grail of obscure, seemingly lost-to-time media. Makes you wonder what still exists on musty, dusty, crumbling away 2" analog tape. Carl was the softest spoken of all The Beach Boys, with a calming presence like no other. Here’s an excerpt.


Robert Plant vs. Pre-Raphaelite Muses

“The term ‘Pre-Raphaelite’ conjures up visions of tall, willowy creatures with pale skin, flowing locks, scarlet lips, and melancholic expressions.”

“Bare chest on full display in unbuttoned silk blouses, razor-blade hip bones peeking out from low-slung, impossibly tight blue jeans, and wild, Pre-Raphaelite blond curls cascading down his back—his onstage look was as disruptive as his heavy-metal falsetto.”
