Blondie Chaplin joins Brian Wilson tour
San Francisco Chronicle - over 3 years
In addition to the Oct. 22 show at the Paramount Theatre, Chaplin, who joined the quintessential Southern California fun-in-the-sun band briefly in the early 1970s, will be part of Wilson's performances in Hollywood, Fla.; New York City; Las Vegas; and the hometown show Oct. 20 at Los Angeles' Greek Theatre.
"[...] two weeks ago, I hadn't seen him since 1974," said Wilson, who reconnected with Chaplin to have him sing on Wilson's next solo album, currently in the works.
Chaplin and drummer Ricky Fataar were South Africans who played in the group the Flame, which was the only act other than the Beach Boys ever signed to the group's Brother Records label.
Wilson is splitting the bill on this tour with Beck, who also has been contributing to the Beach Boys creative leader's solo album.
