Wish i could have met him too and seen him in concert, rather than on dvd. Rest in peace Jan.

I have a recording of deadman's curve, sung by Jan around 1976 and it's quite poigniant, because the last phrase  he sings is "I came back from deadman's curve" it's very haunting

Yes, Davy Jones was indeed a true friend to Jan, and at a time when he needed one to be around, more so than Dean i think,  Dean just thought of Jan as his meal ticket, so to speak, I know Jan thought  Dean  was his friend, but he wasn't really the friend to Jan that, Jan needed him to be, supportive and unquestioning.

A new movie, with greater historical accuracy and the attention to detail that was given to the Love & Mercy biopic would be phenomenal.  Jan's skills as a producer, and his abilities to organize and co-ordinate with the many talented friends and people around him to build a career in entertainment while simultaneously enrolled at medical school are just incredible, and would make for an interesting film.  There were a lot of very interesting relationships that really add to the story which weren't included in the tv movie.

DMC did a good job for what it was; it had to fit '58-66 in 45 minutes, and '67-76 in another 45 minutes, about eight minutes a year.  A lot of information was pared down or removed to focus on the main aspects of the characters and to move the plotline along, basically a story of redemption as Jan sees the greater value in his relationships with others once he can no longer do everything himself and push others aside.  The characterizations focus on the relevant personality types to the story, ie Jan is successful because he is hard-driven but it increasingly pushes others away, Dean is along for the ride but as a loyal friend etc.  It's more incomplete than inaccurate (although it certainly has a number of inaccuracies!).  Plus it does have that skateboard scene.

I always thought there should be a new movie on Jan & Dean also. What he did in the studio was incredible. He didn't have any training that I know of, just amazing talent. His production and arranging values as well as being in medical school wasn't brought out in Deadman's Curve. The real story on J&D and released in theaters would interest fans and those not familiar with them.

Just to give an update on The Beach Boys channel on Sirius Radio, it is 24/7 and wasn't just for Memorial weekend. I did hear Dean a few times talking about Brian and the Wrecking Crew. Surf City was also played on that that channel. Not sure if any other Jan & Dean song was played. If it was co-written by Brian, then I'm sure it'll get air time.
