Brian Wilson says that with time, he's become a stronger performer.
"It's gotten better. We've had a little practice. ... The musicianship, the vocals have gotten better," he said in a recent interview.
Wilson is on a joint tour with Jeff Beck. It wraps Oct. 30 in Milwaukee and includes Al Jardine and David Marks.
Wilson, the 71-year-old singer and songwriter, even said he's improved since the Beach Boys' 50th anniversary tour last year: "It was a very sentimental experience, but the vocals are even better now."
Wilson wouldn't talk about the drama with Mike Love surrounding the band or what the future of the group entailed. Wilson and Love, cousins and founding members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band that helped crystalize the California sound of the 1960s, have been embroiled in a series of divisive lawsuits.
