BEACH BOY BRIAN CALLS ON SIR GEORGE MARTIN

THE BEACH BOYS songwriter BRIAN WILSON has reportedly asked THE BEATLES producer SIR GEORGE MARTIN to remix some of his former band's classic songs.
Martin and his son GILES recently re-worked a number of Beatles hits for Las Vegas Cirque Du Soleil stage show LOVE.
The 81-year-old claimed it would be his final job, but Wilson was impressed and wants the veteran to collaborate with him on a similar project.
A source tells British newspaper the Daily Express, "Brian attended the American premiere of Love last year and is a big fan. He now wants to convince George and Giles to remix some of his old Beach Boys songs fir a new album.
"As far as Brian's concerned it would be a dream to work with George.
"While it's unclear if George will agree, it's known he's a big admirer if Brian Wilson as a songwriter so he might well persuaded to put off his retirement one last time."

I really hope Sir George will agree on doing this...

I don't know if you know, but they did a duet on Brian's album "Gettin' In Over My Head" called "A Friend Like You". It's not very good though. There have been rumors of them wanting to do an album together, but I don't think they ever made any concrete plans. It would be cool if they would do an album together since they're my two biggest musical heroes, but I don't think it would be anything special because Brian can't write songs anymore. Pretty much every song he released in the last ten years was a recycled old outtake.
