Not such good vibrations among members of The Beach Boys
Beach Boys co-founder Brian Wilson has joined a boycott of his own music to protest it being used by another band member at an animal hunting convention.
Wilson has denounced a performance of Beach Boys music tonight at the Safari Club International Convention in Reno, Nevada which is being led by band co-founder, lead singer and chief lyricist Mike Love.
This year’s keynote speaker is avid sports hunter Donald Trump Jr.
Wilson says he and band member Al Jardine are “emphatically opposed” to trophy hunting and and points to a change.org petition that calls for a boycott of Beach Boys’ music until the performance is cancelled.
The petition had garnered some 95,000 signatures by yesterday afternoon.
