Carnie & Wendy Wilson Respond To Jeff Beck’s Thoughts On Brian Wilson

LOS ANGELES, CA - NOVEMBER 09: Wendy Wilson, Carnie Wilson and Chynna Phillips of the group Wilson Phillips visit the set of entertainment television show 'Extra' filming at The Grove on November 9, 2010 in Los Angeles, California. LOS ANGELES, CA - OCTOBER 20: Musician Jeff Beck performs at the Greek Theatre on October 20, 2013 in Los Angeles, California.

Jeff Beck
sounded off a month ago about working and touring with Brian Wilson, saying that “he’s clearly in need of attention,” and it’s definitely caught the ire of Wilson’s daughters, Carnie and Wendy.

Speaking with NY Daily News, the ladies who put the “Wilson” in Wilson Phillips were extremely put off by Beck’s comments, with Carnie asking, “Did he have a beer or what before he said it?” and adding that Beck’s comments were “crass and out there.”  Wendy also responded, saying, “I think you have to support your colleagues and the people you work with,” and that “It is in good taste” to do so.

Carnie and Wendy did confirm that their dad is “doing OK,” and that he’s “laying back a little bit, which is about time.”   

Considering Brian Wilson has released six albums since 2004, I think he deserves a break.
