LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON

EPISODE 1, SEASON 1

Mike Love:

Well, if you haven’t figured it out by now, your Mike is on. This is Mike Love Radio, and I’m of course Mike Love. And today we’re talking about fathers and sons. This episode is Like Father, Like Son. And I got my son here with me today. Put your hands together for Eric Luther Pearson Glenn. Hey.

Eric Glenn:

The whole government name out there?

Mike Love:

Yeah, the whole thing. Like somebody’s going to do something and you don’t have any money in the bank.

Eric Glenn:

You’re right.

Mike Love:

You’re not worth anything.

Eric Glenn:

… giving it back.

Mike Love:

Don’t start whispering now like you don’t want anybody to hear your voice. I got to talk real low because my dad just put my whole name out there and I don’t know what’s going on.

Eric Glenn:

Exactly. You got to be worried about stuff like that.

Mike Love:

No. Okay, well, they know it’s you. We call you E-double sometimes, ELP sometimes. Any other nicknames you got?

Eric Glenn:

Big Boss. That was when I was a kid.

Mike Love:

I swear on a stack of Bibles, I don’t know anytime someone has referred to you as Big Boss.

Eric Glenn:

You know who used to like to refer to me as that? My cousin Sherry out of Cleveland.

Mike Love:

Oh, okay. Okay. Wow. Because I had never heard that. I’ve never heard anybody. And what was that based on? You were telling people what to do? You never stopped talking? What was it?

Eric Glenn:

Probably all of the above if I had to guess.

Mike Love:

Big Boss. That’s that’s funny because I’ve never heard that term coming from you.

Eric Glenn:

Yeah. I don’t like to use it that much, but…

Mike Love:

You shouldn’t because you’re not a big boss.

Eric Glenn:

It was also the basis of my first email address. Bigboss111.

Mike Love:

Well, let me start bossing you around. Will you talk directly into your microphone, please, sir?

Eric Glenn:

I am. Can you not hear me?

Mike Love:

Yeah. A couple of times it sounded like you were leaning to the side and then coming back in.

Eric Glenn:

I probably was. I was trying to fade away from this identity crisis.

Mike Love:

Yeah. The whole big boss thing. Because that was kind of scary. Yeah. You were only dreaming that you are a big boss, that wasn’t really happening. No, no.

Eric Glenn:

I didn’t give myself the nickname, but it’s what it is.

Mike Love:

Okay. Well, they should be prosecuted and sent to jail for the rest of their lives. How your name be big boss? Anyway, Like Father, Like Son, and this is our first episode on a Mike Love the radio podcast. And one of the things, I’m glad I waited this long to do it because when it hit me, it was in the middle of the night, like when the angel came to Mary and said, “You should do your first podcast with your son.” And I was like, “Wow, that would really, really be good.” And so that’s how we got to this-

Eric Glenn:

The most obvious choice.

Mike Love:

Well, it could be an obvious choice, but, the thing of it is people think that you’re doing a podcast and you’re supposed to have the stars on and it’s supposed to be a little bit newsy, but we’ll work our way into that.

Eric Glenn:

What exactly are you trying to say? That I’m nobody?

Mike Love:

No, I just said that you’re no big boss. Yeah. That was basically it.

Eric Glenn:

You’re still stuck on that huh?

Mike Love:

Yeah. I’m just kind of stuck on that. Because you threw the whole thing off. I can throw the script out that I had today. It’s like, “I’m talking to my son, Big Boss.” Oh my God.

Eric Glenn:

What can I say?

Mike Love:

Nothing. Don’t say anything. Well, one of the things, when you think about Like Father, Like Son, what are the traits that match us up to be father and son? What are our likenesses? Is he like me? Am I like him?? And I think in our family, our immediate family that we’ve identified. You’re more like me. Now. I have three children, which is Eric, my baby. Cal, my middle child. And of course my daughter Rosalyn. So, when we think about, who traits you, Cal traits his mom and Roz of course is just like her mom. And then you are identified as being just like me. Now I don’t know what that’s based on. Is that because you talk a lot, I didn’t say me, is it because you talk a lot or you think you know everything, what do you think it is?

Eric Glenn:

I think both of those are incorrect. I do know everything.

Mike Love:

You think you do Big Boss.

Eric Glenn:

Yeah, exactly. No, I think that’s absolutely right. I think we’ve always had an affinity for electronics and getting into technology, being, what do you call those people? Early adopters? Early adopters of a lot of things. We like nice things. That’s always been very true. We enjoy probably hearing ourselves speak a little bit more than we should. Yeah. I can definitely agree with that. Very knowledgeable.

Mike Love:

That’s the one, that’s the big one, right there. Very knowledgeable. I liked that. Keep all of that up.

Eric Glenn:

It’s true. I tell people all the time, I don’t like to talk about things. I don’t know. But if I’m talking about it, I probably know some about it, at least enough to be dangerous.

Mike Love:

Well, that’s true because I’m a factual guy. I work as a consultant. I do affiliate sales with radio stations. And so sometimes people, when I’m giving an opinion or I’m trying to help map something out, it’s like, well, how do you know these things? Well, first of all, I get three to 400 emails a day. And so I’m locked into a lot of blogs and information and different things, and I’ve always been inquisitive like that. So, and I’ll know my job when I do it because I work with rating companies and different rating services. So I’ve seen a lot of ratings and different things like that. So when I’m directing and trying to get people to change their perspective or help them improve, or just give them general support, other people may look at it and say, well, he thinks he knows everything, and it’s not that. It’s just being factual. That’s it, that’s all it is.

Eric Glenn:

But people don’t like that sometimes. And it’s one of those things where if you know me and you know how I am, you’ll know that that is just, it’s a part of knowing me. If I’m going to talk to you about something it’s very factual or I’ll be pretty honest with you and tell you I don’t know. But if I do know, that’s all it’s based on. And when it’s not the popular opinion or what somebody wants to hear, it changes everywhere.

Mike Love:

Well, you know what really floored me as I want to say, you were probably 10 or 11 years old, you really took a liking to computers. Because once again, I was kind of ahead of the curve, and I was always into computers. And so you took right up on it and you could build a computer. I remember taking you to before we had the Best Buys and all the big chains, I remember we’d go to the local computer store and you’d buy the part. And there’s one guy pulled me to the side. I want to say, I can’t even remember how many megabytes it was. It was maybe 25 megabytes. And, and the drive costs $100.

Mike Love:

And he was like, “Are you sure you want to do that? You trust him with that?” And then remember we had to get the motherboard? You built me a server, you built another computer for me. We had just moved into a big 3,000 square foot home in Columbia, South Carolina. And so we had this family room over the garage. It was big. And so Eric would just spend hours and hours in there behind my desk. It was really funny. Because I won’t say that your feet didn’t touch the ground, but it was big for you.

Eric Glenn:

I was about the size I am by that point, I think.

Mike Love:

Because you said you stayed little for a long time.

Eric Glenn:

Yeah.

Mike Love:

You were a little guy. Now Cal was a string bean, the whole life. He’s really thin and stringy, but you were a little guy and you would just be in there with the computer and you knew all about the mouse and then I would be doing something and then you’d come and say, “Well Dad, why’d you do it that way? Why don’t you try this?” And that was probably from you hanging out in my office, in my home when I was asleep or I’m doing something else. And so you picked up pretty quick that computer game.

Eric Glenn:

Yeah. I’ve always had an interest in making it go and figuring out what makes them better or how to keep them up to speed. I don’t know what it is, but I like making sure that it’s the best that it can be. So I’ve always enjoyed putting those… I like puzzles. I think it has a lot to do with puzzles. Computers are like a puzzle, especially back in the day when they were big rectangles, big towers, you could figure out how to get the pieces going to optimize your computer. Nowadays you got Mac books and iMacs and Surface or whatever the Windows computers are and Chromebooks. And they’re impossible to really do much to. But back then it was fun, you could mess around with it, upgrade it. And I was never a big gamer. I think a lot of that is correlated with gaming and people who like to use first-person shooters or graphic-intensive games. And that was never me, but I just liked the whole puzzle aspect to it.

Mike Love:

Well, I bought a lot of puzzles. You always liked puzzles and you liked games and the biggest game that you loved. You take things and I guess because I consider myself emotional. No one has to say, “You’re emotional,” because I know I’m emotional. Right? And you’re very emotional about things. Okay? The first thing, and I’m trying not to get emotional right now in tears. Because just so many memories of my children and the things that they did. Because each one was different in what they liked to do. So the first thing was you and Cal always running to the car when we would go somewhere. Anywhere I went, you guys wanted to go, I could be dressed up, suited, booted, got to go to a corporate meeting and you guys thought you should go. And so I would take you with me and remember the race to the… with Cal?

Eric Glenn:

Yeah. Yeah, of course.

Mike Love:

Yeah. Yeah. You see why he’s getting quiet because…

Eric Glenn:

No, I’m not getting quiet. I’m just saying I remember it. It just wasn’t great memories.

Mike Love:

Yeah. Well, let me bring it back for you. Okay. So you always wanted to sit in the front seat, which Cal though he’s the oldest, he should in the front seat.

Eric Glenn:

I didn’t see it that way.

Mike Love:

Yeah. I know you didn’t obviously. Because you had a hissy fit. Okay? You would get very upset. If you couldn’t sit in the front seat of the car, we had problems. We had serious problems out of you. That was number one. Now, do you start to remember a little bit?

Eric Glenn:

Nope, I don’t remember.

Mike Love:

Yeah. Okay. And I mean fighting at the door, you’re pulling, he’s pulling and I’m like, “Stop, stop, stop!” And then Cal. Okay. You got to give it to your brother. I’d say 50% of the time. He just like, “I don’t care. I don’t care. I don’t care.” It’s just Cal is real quiet. He’s like my wife. He’s very, very quiet and, and doesn’t really say much and that kind of stuff. So he would just be like, “Nah, okay. Eric, come sit in the front man. You’re getting on my nerves,” because you used to do things. You used to intimidate him in a major way.

Eric Glenn:

No, no, no, no.

Mike Love:

Yeah, you did.

Eric Glenn:

See this where we’re going to get to some real reality.

Mike Love:

No, this is where we’re going to separate the father and son. Because some of these things you did, I did not do as a child.

Eric Glenn:

No. All I’m saying is there is more to the story than what meets the eye. See Kyle was very quiet, but he was also very… what’s the word?

Mike Love:

Now, remember he’s not here to defend himself.

Eric Glenn:

He doesn’t have to because he knows it’s the truth. He was very, I don’t want to say deceiving because that’s not the right word. But he was very slick. He was sly. He knew what he was doing in the background to make sure that… He used to do things and I would get in trouble for it. And you hear that happen as kids, but it was very true.

Mike Love:

Name one. Name one thing he did and you got in trouble.

Eric Glenn:

Okay. So we would do something like, “Okay, if you’re going to do the dishes, I’ll do this for you.” And so he’s supposed to do the dishes, doesn’t do the dishes, but it was originally my chore. So I get in trouble for it. And I did what he was supposed to do. But there was no explaining myself. So I was just in trouble.

Mike Love:

But because you were an aggressive child, you would do things…

Eric Glenn:

That’s a strong word, aggressive.

Mike Love:

Well, you were. I remember your mom telling you not to go outside. It was snowing and you wanted to go outside. And she said, “Well baby, you can’t go out and play today.” And you wanted to go outside and I don’t remember what happened, but we ended up in the family room or somewhere else in the house. And you went outside anyway and got locked out and it was like 15 degrees outside.

Eric Glenn:

Well, I was kind of young then, from what I understand, I don’t remember that.

Mike Love:

Yeah. Yeah. You’re having memory loss.

Eric Glenn:

Well, how old was I?

Mike Love:

You got dementia at 32.

Eric Glenn:

How old was I?

Mike Love:

You were a kid. You probably about six or seven maybe.

Eric Glenn:

Okay.

Mike Love:

She would be better at identifying that, but you were young and you were able to turn the knob to open the door and go outside. And then all of a sudden it was like, “Where’s Eric? Have you seen Eric?” And I think she jumped up because she used to love to cook and she probably still does, but she cooked all the time. So she spent a lot of time in the kitchen. She goes in and finds out you’re outside. And then you accused us of locking you out.

Eric Glenn:

You probably did.

Mike Love:

We probably thought about it.

Eric Glenn:

You thought I was aggressive. So you probably were like, “Okay. Yeah, this is the little break. We’ll see what happens.”

Mike Love:

We had to get those safety plugs to put into the electric sockets all over the house. Because one of the things and I’ll probably say from birth, your right index finger, are you right or left-handed?

Eric Glenn:

Right-handed.

Mike Love:

Okay, your right index finger told you everything you needed to know, even before you started talking. Everything you did, if you could touch it with your right index finger, then that was okay or not for you. And so, a couple of times we almost caught you sticking your finger in an electric socket and you wouldn’t be here today to talk about it if we hadn’t have put those plugs in there.

Eric Glenn:

Well, probably. I got to give you that one. I can argue that I don’t know what to say there. That is what it is.

Mike Love:

Okay. All right. Here’s another one. They have these like floor Gates that you can put up, they use it for animals a lot of times if you don’t want the animal to come out the kitchen, your dog, your pet, or whatever the case may be. And we had to have those.

Eric Glenn:

Baby gates?

Mike Love:

Yeah, it was a baby gate. But a lot of times, you use them for babies too. And I’m sorry for making that reference. But we had to have baby gates everywhere because we were living in New Jersey. And of course the family rooms, the bedrooms were upstairs. And so you would always, you used to crawl down the steps, but all of a sudden you got grown and you wanted to walk down the steps like everybody else. And I want to say, you probably tumbled down three or four times easy and had the knots on your head to show it. Now the first thing we’re thinking is we’re going to look like we’re abusing you, child abuse, or something.

Eric Glenn:

What else would you call it?

Mike Love:

You being aggressive.

Eric Glenn:

Oh, I’m the aggressive two year old.

Mike Love:

You were the aggressive three. You brought this up terrible twos. You owned that. You owned you. You probably coined the phrase, terrible two. You should have because you were a terrible two.

Eric Glenn:

Don’t they say that your kids are supposed to be worse than how bad you were?

Mike Love:

But see, here’s the thing. Even though I have siblings, I grew up as an only child. So there’s nobody to record of the things that I did. So we got Cal and Roz to come in and verify these stories that I’m telling.

Eric Glenn:

And for you, we should just believe that you were an angel.

Mike Love:

Oh, I still got the marks on my back, where they had to have the surgery to take the wings off because I couldn’t get my clothes on.

Eric Glenn:

Is that wings or from when you got beat?

Mike Love:

Well, my parents…

Eric Glenn:

Is that what they told you to say if anybody asks?

Mike Love:

Well, let me say this back in the day, it was none of that stuff of you calling 911 on your parents. And my parents clearly did not spare the rod. Okay? So if it was deserving of you to get a whooping, you were going to get it. That was it. I can only remember getting a couple of spankings, should I say, from my dad. But my mom, hey, anything handy. And she didn’t, now you hear about these parents who use, what are they? Ironing cords and stuff like that. No, she wasn’t abusive. Because my mom was a registered nurse and she took care of children. So she had an affinity for kids that was like no other, my mother loved kids. My mother could have been mother goose. If she had the kids to back it up. She loved kids.

Mike Love:

And so, but she would spank real quick. And my dad, he was a punishment guy. “No, you’re not going outside. You’re not going anywhere. Go to your room.” That’s what was happening. So like I said, I won’t say I didn’t have, or those traits that you have, I didn’t do, but we don’t have a record of it. That’s all I can say. So. Well, how about that?

Eric Glenn:

Hey, it’s just me and you here. So I guess I’m at a loss. It’s terrible.

Mike Love:

Oh my goodness.

Eric Glenn:

I think listeners know what the truth is. There’s no question, no question at all.

Mike Love:

Well, this episode is Like Father, Like Son. And so we’re trying to identify our traits and to really see. And I think you, out of my three children is the best peg for it, but I don’t want to forget this one thing when we were talking about you having to have your way and being emotional, right? Let’s go to the Monopoly game situation. Now don’t tell me you don’t remember that. Because you were a teen.

Eric Glenn:

No habla ingles.

Mike Love:

Yeah. Right. You speak English. You just don’t hear well. Okay. Now, Eric loved to play Monopoly. Anywhere he went, Eric traveled with the Monopoly game. Anytime we’d go somewhere, especially if we were going to see family or friends, Eric wanted to take the Monopoly game because at some point we playing Monopoly. Now a lot of people do that with spades. A lot of adults, they like to go, “Hey, let’s play spades.” But Eric loved Monopoly and everywhere he went, we had to play Monopoly. Now that’s not bad. Right?

Eric Glenn:

It’s a fun game, come on, let’s be real. It’s only fun when people play fair.

Mike Love:

Eric, it was only fun if you could be the banker.

Eric Glenn:

When people play fair.

Mike Love:

No, no, no, no, no.

Eric Glenn:

I know. I’m trying to help you. That’s how I like we are. We can finish each other’s sentences. That’s what you were going to say, right?

Mike Love:

No. You wanted to be the banker. Okay? Okay. All right. I’ll go with yours. Let’s go with yours. Okay? Playing fair meant that you had to be the banker every time?

Eric Glenn:

Well, somebody’s got to be the oversight committee.

Mike Love:

Well, other people wanted to be the banker and wait a minute. A lot of times we were playing with adults. Now to keep from hurting my feelings as an adult, they probably were trying to figure out why was I letting you be the banker when you didn’t even have any money.

Eric Glenn:

I had Monopoly money.

Mike Love:

Oh my God, you were trying to monopolize the game. That’s what you were trying to do.

Eric Glenn:

Right. Listen, you know what? If you guys can’t handle the heat, get out the fire.

Mike Love:

Oh my God, this is too much. But I’m telling you. That’s the kind of kid you were. Now. We love you. And we’ll always love you. But we-

Eric Glenn:

We can end here. This is a great show.

Mike Love:

No, no, no, no, no. We always have to make a, I got one more. I got one more. Mr. Hard Head. Okay. And you had to be given medication. Well, I think they gave you medication so you wouldn’t remember. Okay. Time number three. I was off that day. And you decided you wanted to spend the day with me. You said, “Dad, can I spend the day with you? I just want to be with you.” And I mean, I was like, “Wow, he just wants to be with me.” I said okay.

Mike Love:

So all the errands I had to run, go pay insurance on the vehicles that we owned and everything else. The whole day you spent with me and you were so happy, you were elated. When we got back home, you ran in the house and you changed your clothes and you were running around and you said, “Oh, can I go outside and ride my bike? Can I go outside and ride my bike?” And we said okay. And probably about 15 minutes later, do you know where I’m going with this story?

Eric Glenn:

I know exactly where you were going.

Mike Love:

Okay. So 15 minutes later, your mom and I, we were talking about something, and Cal runs in and says, “Eric just got hit by a car. Eric just got hit by a car.” And we thinking, “Where could he possibly get hit by a car?” Now, just to give you a little backstory, we lived on a hill. Okay? As a matter of fact, the street was called Hillside Drive and we lived next door to a dentist. And it wasn’t a lot of room because he had put his office in his home and had built an additional space on the back of his home so he could have clients and different things like that and his medical equipment. So he didn’t have anywhere for people to park. And I think the city wouldn’t grant him a license unless he did it.

Mike Love:

Well, ironically, there was an empty lot across the street. He ended up purchasing the lot and he made a five or six car space there. It wasn’t really big, but it was enough to get five or six cars there. And that would cover, I guess, the people that were working for him and anybody that would come to need dental care. And a lady had come, she had parked, Eric gets on his bike and he’s riding. And I don’t know who wasn’t looking. If Eric wasn’t looking, if the lady wasn’t looking, but she backed out and Eric ran dead into the car, flipped over, and knocked his two front teeth out.

Eric Glenn:

Yeah. From what I understand, I’m coming down this hill, I remember I was going toward the dead end. And this is the way it was explained to me at least. Because I don’t know how accurate it is. Like you said, they gave me the medication to prevent nightmares. So there was a conversion van. I remember back in the day people had those big bouncy vans, they had the velvet on the inside and the tube TV and they thought they were hot stuff. So anyway, it had the curtains in the windows. It’s one step away from a creepy stalker van. But I guess it was a thing back then. As long as you had your own kids, it was fine. So I guess that was parked in the space closest to where I was coming from. And she had this big metal Cadillac.

Mike Love:

Oh, it was a big one. She had when Cadillac were still big. Yeah. I agree with you. It was the big one.

Eric Glenn:

Yeah. She had the biggest ones she could find at the dealership. So she said she was backing up, but she couldn’t see around the van. So she came out and couldn’t see me coming and I probably didn’t see her either until it was too late. As you know, coming down that steep hill, you’re going to be going pretty fast.

Mike Love:

But I think a lot of that energy was just the mere fact that you had spent the day with me.

Eric Glenn:

Probably.

Mike Love:

You should admit that because people are overjoyed when they spend quality time with me. I said people are overjoyed… But you’re right. She backed out, you hit the car, flipped over, knocked your teeth out. And I ran outside because I was changing clothes. I ran outside in my underwear.

Eric Glenn:

I’ve heard.

Mike Love:

Yeah. I ran outside. Come on, you’re hit by a car? It just threw me and I ran outside and the dentist came out and your teeth, I think we’re in two different places. And we called an ambulance and they came and the driver found the one tooth. And then he said, “Well, we got to wait. Let’s see if we can find the other one.” They found both. And they put them in a little cup of milk and we took that and we went to the hospital and I think, you were kind of dazed and confused, but I think they gave you something. We made note of that a few minutes ago. So you wouldn’t have bad memories of that situation. But there’s once again, aggressive tale number three.

Eric Glenn:

I still have bad memories of that janky hospital that they took me to.

Mike Love:

Well, that was one of the largest hospitals…

Eric Glenn:

Remember?

Mike Love:

But that was one of the largest hospitals in the St. Louis area. So it wasn’t janky. But once again.

Eric Glenn:

The first one I’m talking about.

Mike Love:

Oh, well, yeah, they had to transfer you. But that was a hometown hospital. Come on Eric.

Eric Glenn:

No, I know it’s fine. But they put my teeth in backwards.

Mike Love:

Yeah, they did. That’s exactly what happened. They put your teeth in backwards.

Eric Glenn:

Because it’s a janky hospital.

Mike Love:

Well, no, no, no. You know what happened? And I remember the guy, I don’t know if I should say his name, his first name was Allen. Because he was a good friend of mine. He showed up in the ambulance.

Eric Glenn:

Oh, so you know the guy that put my teeth in.

Mike Love:

Yeah. As a matter of fact, he put your teeth in, at the scene.

Eric Glenn:

Backwards. It was at the dentist’s office. They all couldn’t figure it out?

Mike Love:

Well everybody was like, Eric, somebody getting hit by a car?

Eric Glenn:

I’m not upset. I’m not upset.

Mike Love:

It was crazy, everybody gets-

Eric Glenn:

Maybe just a little bit. Mostly not upset.

Mike Love:

Everybody was frantic. That’s all I can remember. Everybody was frantic. And then somebody said, “Mr. Glenn, you may want to go inside and put some clothes on.” And that’s when I realized, all I had on was my underwear. And so I did, I went and got fully dressed and got in the car and your mom and I raced to the hospital. And that’s when they told us when we got there that they were transferring you to another hospital in St. Louis. And when we got there, I think that’s when the orthopedic guy, not orthopedic. But what do you call… The pediatrician? The pediatrician identified that your teeth were in backwards.

Eric Glenn:

Yeah.

Mike Love:

Yeah. Or something.

Eric Glenn:

I don’t know if you guys remember this or not, but apparently, I heard that you guys had been just hanging out in the room, waiting for me to wake up and I was still out of it. And you guys, I guess, went to go get some food. I don’t really know where you were. Maybe you just were trying to abandon me. But when I did finally wake up…

Mike Love:

We thought about it.

Eric Glenn:

Yeah, I woke up in the room by myself. Not sure why I was in the hospital.

Mike Love:

No. We did not leave the hospital.

Eric Glenn:

I know you were probably down, I don’t know.

Mike Love:

Yeah. I think we got a cup of coffee, talking to the doctors and the nurses because think about this. People were wondering, okay, how did this happen? Where we watching you, where you on your own?

Eric Glenn:

Oh, so you were trying to get your story straight.

Mike Love:

We got the story straight, Mr. Know-it-all. We got the story straight. Oh my goodness. You are listening to the episode like Father, Like Son with Eric, my son, this is Mike Love. And there are a lot of, I think there’s 40 or 50 popular father-son combinations out there that are famous. And I got a couple of them here. And I just wanted to ask you. Like Will Smith and Jayden Smith, his son. Like father, like son, would you agree?

Eric Glenn:

Yeah, I think so. Very eccentric, both of them.

Mike Love:

Yeah. Well, but his son is into designing and fashion and that kind of stuff. He’s been in a couple of movies, but that’s really his claim to fame and I know Will Smith personally. And he’s a great guy and I see a lot of his son and him as well. What about Ice Cube and O’Shea Jackson Jr.?

Eric Glenn:

I don’t see enough of his son to know how they are. What do you think?

Mike Love:

Well, you saw him in the biopic of NWA, did you see that movie?

Eric Glenn:

Oh yeah, yeah, yeah.

Mike Love:

Yeah. So his son played him, Ice Cube.

Eric Glenn:

I know. Yeah. I get that. But I mean outside of the acting, I don’t know how they are in person. You don’t really see too much of them outside of that.

Mike Love:

Yeah. That’s true. And you probably don’t recognize him all the time, man. They look alike, but you may not see him, and just go, “Oh, that’s Ice Cube.”

Eric Glenn:

But he did do a good job playing it. Well, I would assume.

Mike Love:

He did an excellent job of playing his dad. Yeah. Sort of like you try to do. Yeah. What about Bob Marley and Ziggy Marley?

Eric Glenn:

Oh, that’s a really good one. I like that one. They are very much alike. Well, from what I can tell.

Mike Love:

Denzel Washington and John David Washington, his son played on that Showtime series with him being the quarterback or something of the football team.

Eric Glenn:

I haven’t seen that, but I did see the previews for it. And I thought he was pretty good. I think he’s going to be good following in his father’s footsteps.

Mike Love:

No doubt. Damon Wayans and Damon Wayans. Jr.

Eric Glenn:

Of course, that’s an obvious one.

Mike Love:

I don’t think that the son is as funny as the dad, but clearly comedy is in their DNA.

Eric Glenn:

Exactly.

Mike Love:

Last but not least, Donald Trump and Donald Trump Jr.

Eric Glenn:

Well… I don’t have any words for that. I don’t know if we got enough time on this podcast or if you’re trying to lose listeners or what the deal may be.

Mike Love:

Okay. All right. We don’t need your political views. But we got a feature on the show and we call it the final four and what it is, you got 30 seconds to answer four questions with one answer. All right?

Eric Glenn:

Okay.

Mike Love:

You got to let me know.

Eric Glenn:

One word answer?

Mike Love:

One word answer.

Eric Glenn:

Okay.

Mike Love:

Okay. W which is called your final answer. All right?

Eric Glenn:

Okay.

Mike Love:

Okay. What’s one bad habit you’re trying to get rid of? One word.

Eric Glenn:

One bad habit I’m trying to get rid of.

Mike Love:

One word.

Eric Glenn:

Snacking.

Mike Love:

What’s left on your bucket list? And you’re pretty young. So you’ve got a lot of stuff to do. One word. One thing.

Eric Glenn:

Well, it’s more than one word, but one thing, Great Wall of China.

Mike Love:

All right. What’s your most treasured possession?

Eric Glenn:

My 65-inch television.

Mike Love:

Oh my God, Eric. I love you, man. Thanks for hanging out with your dad. Like Father, Like Son, Our first episode for Mike Love Radio, man.
