The world was certainly "picking up good vibrations" last year when the surviving members of the legendary Beach Boys -- Brian Wilson, Al Jardine, David Marks, Bruce Johnston, and Mike Love - reunited for the first time in over two decades for the group's 50th anniversary tour. But history repeated itself after the band completed that particular tour. Wilson was out, as were Jardine and Marks. But Love and Johnston kept touring, playing sold-out gigs across the world as the beloved Beach Boys (Love owns the "Beach Boys" name). "To avoid public confusion, and at the request of Brian's representative, we had a press release sent out detailing the differences between the two Beach Boys tours and its varying lineups," Love said in a statement late last year. "I was surprised that Brian and Al said they were surprised by this announcement. Some media outlets interpreted all of this as me firing the band." He didn't. He simply didn't need the rest of the group's services anymore. So which Beach Boys will be on stage at Hard Rock Live on February 18? "God Only Knows." Actually, all but Wilson, Jardine and Marks. So let Love and Johnston be your guide on this "Surfin' Safari" and simply "Dance, Dance, Dance." Victor Gonzalez

If it makes you happy, it's cant be that bad. Well, unless you were dating Lance Armstrong at the height of his popularity and under the impression that, for seven straight years, the seven-time Tour de France champion simply had the strongest legs in the field, not a killer doping regimen. In that case, it probably was that bad (read: 'roid rages). For Sheryl Crow, it ultimately cost her a would-be husband. The couple split "after much thought and consideration" about a year after announcing their engagement, calling it quits just shy of their spring wedding. "I know how hard he worked to win those titles, and you know, it was hard to watch [his confession]," Crow recently told Entertainment Tonight. "I felt bad. I felt bad for him, I felt bad for his family, and I kinda felt like the rest of America. He is a hero that we watched and looked up to and admire." We still can. And we can also look up to, and admire, Crow, a fearless cancer survivor herself who has used her celebrity to raise money for various charities as well. At the end of the day, that should make you happy. Victor Gonzalez

With so many Marleys, how can we tell them all apart? Well, we know Ziggy, at least. He's the hottie whose sound most resembles that of his daddy, you know, Bob? Anyway, though he's a Miami resident, he doesn't play all that often down here in South Florida, so this show at Revolution Live will be a treat for the Rastafari, silly stoned, college and partially college educated. Don't miss a chance to marvel at those luscious locks.
