Beach Boy Mike Love Shares Whimsical Video For “Do It Again” With John Stamos And Mark McGrath

first_imgRecently, The Beach Boys’ Mike Love recently joined forces Full House star John Stamos and Extra host/former Sugar Ray frontman Mark McGrath for an updated rendition of the surf-rock icons’ 1968 single “Do It Again.” On Wednesday, the trio premiered the official video for their self-described “reincarnation” of the track, directed by Stamos.While Love’s relationship with the rest of his original band, particularly songwriting collaborator Brian Wilson, is publicly contentious, the relationship between these three performers is all love. The clip is a thoroughly satisfying dose of fun-in-the-sun nostalgia, with shots of Love’s younger days singing with the Beach Boys interspersed with a whimsical Love-McGrath-Stamos karaoke montage. Take a few minutes to watch the video (via OfficialMikeLove), and we promise your day will be just a little more light-hearted if you do.“The whole song’s about getting together with old friends and sharing good times and talking about the old times,” Love told Billboard. “The fact that here we are decades later, recreating it with old friends, having a great time – it doesn’t get much more organic and perfect and fantastic than that.” Love also commented on the old-school footage used: “Sometimes it’s embarrassing to see myself with a beard as long as ZZ Top’s or looking like Duck Dynasty or jumping around with my shirt off and rockin’, but, hey, it was the ’60s and the ’70s and it was rock and roll and there’s a whole lot of history there.”As fans of Full House know, the connection between Love and Stamos goes way back, at least as far as the Beach Boys’ guest roles on the show in the 90’s. Love, Stamos, and McGrath performed their “reinvigorated” version of the 60’s tune for a 4th of July TV special in Washington, D.C. for PBS earlier this month.:[h/t – Rolling Stone]last_img read more
