Beach Boys Reunion Ends In Dispute

(CBS Local) Just as the reunited Beach Boys are wrapped their 50th anniversary reunion tour this week in London, band members are feuding over the future of said reunion tour. Firing back at Mike Love's new tour dates without Brian Wilson, Al Jardine and David Marks, Jardine is urging fans to sign an online petition to Love.

The petition, which currently has nearly 2,000 signatures after a few days, was started by a fan and promoted by Jardine on his official Facebook. The petition reads as follows: "In order to preserve the validity of "The Beach Boys" as a whole, and not as a "money saving, stripped down version" that only contains 1 original member, and 1 member that joined in 1965, we ask you to re-instate the 3 other members to the touring group for your final years performing. It's the right thing to do, and it's what the fans want!"

Jardine is not the only Beach Boy to express his unhappiness with the reunion's end. "I'm disappointed and can't understand why he [Love] doesn't want to tour with Al, David and me," Brian Wilson recently said. "We are out here having so much fun. After all, we are the real Beach Boys." Find out Love's plans here which caused the uproar.
