The Beach Boys are coming to play Lubbock's City Bank Coliseum Monday, March 7, 2016. We got the chance to talk with legendary member Mike Love about a variety of topics.

I have to be honest, I was nervous about talking with him after hearing different rumors throughout the years regarding his demeanor. Much to my delight, he is just that: delightful.

I asked Love about touring the world and what the biggest difference between the U.S. and touring in foreign countries. His response was hilarious. Without missing a beat, he said the main difference is "English." Priceless.

He also said that since The Beach Boys are a group heavy on vocals and harmonies, they have to take care of themselves and their voices, which means exercise and no drinking or partying.

He had much more to say, and I will follow up with the rest of my three-part interview in a posts to come. For now, check out part 1 of my interview with Mike Love in the video above.
