Mike Love: you know the name, and you definitely know the music. The Beach Boys are an institution, with their rich catalog of hit songs and classic albums standing the test of time and influencing artists the world over.

Love recently released Unleash the Love, a double-album of original material and re-imagined Beach Boys songs. He was also kind enough to spare an hour recently for the latest installment of RockCellarTV, speaking one-on-one with Rock Cellar’s Ken Sharp at a studio in Los Angeles.

And when we say ‘an hour,’ we mean it: This is a five-part video interview in which Love talks about a number of topics: his life and upbringing, accomplishments, working alongside Brian Wilson and much more. Enjoy it all below, and remember: becoming a Rock Cellar subscriber unlocks access to all five interview segments (and yes, there’s a free subscription option too).

Here’s Part 1 of the four-part chat:

And the rest …

RockCellarTV was introduced a few years ago as an effort to allow larger-than-life music icons to get up close and personal, discussing whatever they want — for however long they want, resulting in some candid conversations about hits, successful albums and music legacies … as well as misses, scandals and anything else they were comfortable discussing.

Mike Love joins the ranks of those we’ve spoken with in this capacity during RockCellarTV’s history, a list that includes Todd Rundgren’s UtopiaWalter EganStewart CopelandJudy CollinsRita CoolidgePeter Noone of Herman’s HermitsSteve HackettJohn OatesRick SpringfieldGene Simmons of KISSSteve Lukather of TotoMike Love of the Beach BoysTodd RundgrenRingo Starr and more.

Some of these chats took place at Rock Cellar HQ in California, while others were filmed on-location at venues (like the world famous Troubadour in Hollywood, in the case of our chat with John Oates) as the artists prepared for a gig. They’re all up on our YouTube channel.
