Three Beach Boys Dumped During Reunion Tour

It’s kind of like that time when your boyfriend/girlfriend broke up with you via Facebook/Twitter/town crier. Sometimes you’re just the last to know that you’ve been dumped. We’re pretty sure that’s how former Beach Boys Brian Wilson, Al Jardine and David Marks feel. The band’s frontman, Mike Love, announced that the band will split after this week and Wilson, Jardine and Marks will no longer be part of the classic group. Wilson, Jardine and Marks didn’t know that they had been dropped until Love and Bruce Johnston released a public statement announcing the change. Love says that the drop was financially motivated. The dump-ees will be replaced by the version of the Beach Boys that Love normally takes on tour, which includes his son Christian. To top it off, this year marks the Beach Boys’ 50th anniversary tour. Happy anniversary boys.
