Great post. That Brian Wilson video cleared up a lot of things, too.

Thanks James. To be honest, I always thought they used theremin. Not sure how the hell I missed it, but I had never heard of Tannerin before. So when I saw that on stage I was like - I've got to post out on this :^)

Brian Wilson clearly got some issues, but still a genius. When he was about to start singing the verse during the Grammy's I was a bit prepared for - well not great. When he started singing he blew me away. The hair on the back of my neck actually stood up. In general the Beach Boys dusted Levine and Foster the People.

Speaking of the Grammy's, I thought Bruno Mars was best performance. Talk about a well rehearsed band.
