    Mitch from NYC notes that, in the interests of Truth in Advertising, the group should tour as the Beach Geezers.

    The Beach Boys sing about surfing, drag racing, and chicks in bikinis. The Beach Geezers sing about water aerobics, paratransit, and waking up next to The Little Old Lady From Pasadena.

    I don’t get why everyone is dogging on the beach boys. They’re legends and they don’t deserve all this crap!

    It’s because they’re boys no more, and haven’t been for many decades. They seem to be singing just fine.
