Any Brian Wilson fans?
Wanna get a phone call from him?

Got a C-note?

"Melinda and I came up with a great idea. We can make a bigger difference for the hurricane victims who have been left homeless andin shelters.

Here's my challenge: For anyone who sends a donation of $100 or more, I will call you personally and answer a question you may have, or just say hello. Also, Melinda and I will match the donation."

1. I read about this.
This is a fantastic idea! A couple of friends and myself are talking about going in on this together and having the phone call at my house.

2. Huge Brian fan here
And I donated! I'm expecting a call sometime tonight actually. I'll post a report as soon as the man calls me.

More than anything, I just want to say "thank you" directly to him for all the great music he's made.

4. That is very, very cool.
Trying to decide what I'd ask him. Maybe, "Which cover version of one of your songs do you like best?"

5. How cool is that?
Sorry to say, much as I love his music, I can't think of a single thing to ask him. Maybe, what's he listening to these days? What music makes him happy?

8. One more reason to appreciate you
There's not a week that goes by that I don't listen to Pet Sounds...and the remaster of Smile is AWESOME!

Not to mention Love and Mercy and Holland...I just love Brian Wilson

11. How cool is that?
I would do it if I had the cash. I don't know what I would ask although I would have a few things that I would like to say.
Brian Wilson is too cool for words.

13. I've seen him live twice
Once last spring one the "Smile" tour, and once in 2000. The man is a musical genius, no doubt about it.

I may have to pony up that C-Note, just for the chance to speak to a living legend. Brian Wilson is an American treasure. I'm so glad he's back doing music again. He's amazing.
