Wow! What a fiasco. I sure hope pressure from the fans will bring Mike Love to his senses. We'll have to see. His publicist sure did back down in a New York Minute to the letter from the Eagles as well he should have.

LOL! Care packages!! What, did he send them some chocolate, jelly, coffee, and bath salts to show he's truly, truly sorry?

Ah well. At least he is trying to make it up; got to give him credit for that.

The letter from the Eagles is quite personally insulting to Mike Love. I had no idea there were such hard feelings. Glenn speaks so highly of the Beach Boys and Tim has even recoded with them. I guess it's more Brian Wilson they have affection for; perhaps they are outraged on his behalf and it added heat to their response.

JMO I think that the respect is for Brian wilson ...he is the genius of the band..again jmo.

Care packages???? Like that would make up for shooting off your mouth and offending the.

What a mess..so shameful that egos get in the way.

Yeah, that part about the "care packages" really cracked me up. Something that manager dreamed up, no doubt!!! What the heck do you give the Eagles in a care package?

I was just at ticketsnow.com and see there are four more BB shows scheduled before the end of the year. I wonder how many people already bought tickets? Would serve Mike Love right if they all demanded their money back -- I certainly would because I'd feel like I was duped.
