Include Blondie and Ricky in The Beach Boys 2012 Reunion!
We, the undersigned, as fans of The Beach Boys, ask that BRI include Blondie Chaplin and Ricky Fataar in the 2012 reunion to whatever extent possible. Since this is a true, long-awaited reunion of the surviving Beach Boys, these two full-fledged members from the 1970s should be included along with Brian, Mike, Al, Bruce, and David Marks. To not do so would be to deny an essential part of The Beach Boys' history, and one that is exceedingly and increasingly popular with fans. We value the contributions of Blondie and Ricky to The Beach Boys' vocal sound, live performances, and studio records during the "Holland" period. Their contributions continue to have an effect on The Beach Boys organization, and the 2012 reunion tour is the ideal chance to give them the recognition they deserve.
