14 Minutes With Beach Boy Mike Love

John Tobler, ZigZag, October 1976

ONE OF THE great omissions of Zigzag's entire life thus far has been a piece on the Beach Boys, who I consider to be the most charismatic group there has ever been. That's not to say that I haven't experienced brief flirtations with several other groups, but when they fade from my memory, I've noticed that I always instinctively revert to Endless Summer, which replaced my original favourite, Best Of Vol. 2 a couple of years ago.

Total word count of piece: 2668
