BrianWilson01“I’m glad you could all be here tonight for a concert by the Rolling Stones,” declared Brian Wilson at the start of his show at The Egg on Tuesday evening. Then he and his unbelievably excellent 10-piece band launched into “The Monster Mash.”

I guess when you’re Brian Wilson you can pretty much say (and play) anything that you want.

Some other notable quotes from Mr. Wilson during Tuesday’s show:
