Ok When Jan died CNN [after they stopped running Jan BArry B-movie actress] They were showing a vid of Jan talking to a reporter and Dean was there beside him . No sound but you could tell Dean was mad and  I tried  to read his lips , it seemed like he was saying "I'm right here" Anybody ever see this and know what it was about? THX Mike

I read somewhere those pics were just publicity shoots and had nothing to do with the movie. As in a still taken form a part of the movie.

I have one from late 80's early 90's ? It has Jan and Dean's name mixed up on the box art of the stars. Accidently taped over a portion of it becuse they didnt remove the tab. :o

Oh I like the song , it's pretty cool . I would like to hear it as one song though. I've read it was too long to be released as one so they did it as two. However it doesnt sound the same. Like it doesnt flow into part 2 right. Maybe Mark could shine some light on this.

Not to my knowledge Dean's known him  since b4 he was famous Did all his album covers [or most all]. Too much a simularity there. Like Surf City and Hey Little Cobra. to my knowledge no one has admitted those two are the same song . By the way I alway's thought "The Smothers Brothers" comedy was very J&D like , of course J&D copied after L&H as has everyother comedy duo since . But Steve Martin won an emmy as a writer for their tv show. Not saying there is a conection just that maybe Steve and Dean are of the same mind set comedic wise. ;)

There may be a simple explanation of why Dean did'nt use a COS era photo of him and Jan . And thats , that maybe there wasnt a "good one" of them together from that time frame . I've seen some of the guy's together in Jan's house and Dean looks fat. Not a good pic at all .

DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Dean and Dave Marks in Mesa Az Review

Went to the show last Wed in Mesa . The guy's sounded good ,  a good mix of J&D BB stuff with Margaritaville thrown in . Wish they would've did another J&D!!!! But maybe that was a tie breaker. Got to talk to Dean a little . Said he should write the final chapter of his book this year. And signed my Origanial Surf City sheet music . He  pointed out the finger he was giving and said some had it taken out so look at yours [ if you have one] and see if it's there!.  ;)

My take on the remakes is that they were all right but not as good as the original . However is it possible Dean wanted an updated sound? A new twist on them ? Dont change too much but this is what' s and who's [M love] selling now? It's been said he should'nt have used Jan's name. Maybe Mark can tell us if Jan ever gave his opinion on this matter. Also lets say he did'nt and just called it Dean Torrence. Would we be saying he should'nt have left Jan's name off ???? My understanding it was for DMC then they used the orig's . Could it be so much time and money was spent the "suits" said we want that out and it's gonna be called Jan & Dean to cash in on the new found fame for our two boy's ?

When someone say's they sounded like the BB 's I tell them NO the bb's sounded like J&D! . As said the Capitol rec ex when Murry played them Surfin!
Next is this lie that they were on a down period  when Jan had the wreck . When you look at the backstory you know thats not true . They were actually ready to become an even bigger name than ever! , with the TV show debuting in the fall who knows what woulda happened. Next it alway's amazes me that they ask What would Buddy Holly have done if he didnt die in the plane crash . But have never ask about Jan's might have beens . Even through Jan was better at his craft than Holly [ I am a big Holly fan not putting him down]. AND J&D sound just fine. They probley could'nt explain "OFF KEY" if they tried.  :o I'd say my reasons are pretty much the same as you scooby . It's the whole of their story. It's real Americana.

They all hold something special for me. Finding the first of the DMC/NGNS "negitive album in 98 after looking for 10 years was a treat ! I do like the last of the Surf City to Drag City cd as it has the studio stuff at the last especially the DMC  session him asking Leon Russel  if he was gonna play full chords this take meanning there is 2 different piano parts on DMC, Giving Billy Strange J&D guitar style intsructions and you can hear him say something like "And Glen you just give it what ya got" I would love to hear him giving Tommy Tedesco some instruction's.
