No good vibrations for Beach Boys, split by hunting concert

By  | 

NEW YORK (AP) - One of the co-founders of The Beach Boys has joined a boycott of his own music to protest it being used by another member at an animal hunting convention.

Brian Wilson has denounced a performance of Beach Boys music on Wednesday at the Safari Club International Convention in Reno, Nevada.

The concert is being led by The Beach Boys’ co-founder, lead singer and chief lyricist Mike Love. Wilson says in a tweet that he and band member Al Jardine are "emphatically opposed” to trophy hunting. He then pointed to a petition that calls on a boycott of Beach Boys’ music until the performance is canceled.
