Following the Beach Boys 50th anniversary tour last summer, and subsequent break-up at the request of Mike Love, the singer now says he'd like to bring back Brian Wilson into the fold.
Speaking with the Daily Star, Love says the disbanding was misconstrued by the press:
"I don't know how that sacking controversy started. I'd love to work with Brian again. The anniversary tour was originally 50 dates, and got extended to 73. At that point, Brian said: 'No more dates for us, please."
However, Al Jardine claimed that Love was the impetus behind the split in a Facebook post which included a petition to return he, Wilson and David Marks to the band.
Now Love says Wilson at least is welcome back: "I'd very much like to get in a room, just him and I, to write more songs. We've always had a special chemistry. I'd like to do that more than anything."
