The Greg Brady Project

Welcome to the official Barry Williams' blog

My friends call me Barry. From time to time I also hear the name Greg. Yeah, as in Greg Brady. The Brady Bunch represents a fun time in my life. But it’s only part of the story. There’s more to say and that’s what The Greg Brady Project is all about – a place to say it. So, I’ve invited some friends to join me and share their perspectives on the Brady’s, the 70′s and just about everything else. Now, I’m inviting you…

The Brady Year That Was…

Growing Up 70s

Brady mania was alive and well in 2007. On a high note, the whole gang was honored with the TV Land Pop Culture Award at the 5th annual TV Land Awards. We also saw the box set release of the entire “Brady Bunch” series along with “A Very Brady Christmas” and lots more wrapped up in a nice fuzzy green package.

Your favorite Brady cast members were on the go this year. Florence Henderson gave us a sneak peak of her upcoming Retirement Living TV talk show, while Maureen McCormick destroyed everyone in her path by dropping 38 pounds on “Celebrity Fit Club” (and oh yeah…you may have heard, she’s been writing a book). As for our leader, he spent the year tearing it up on Sirius Satellite Radio, starring in “Growing Up 70s” in the heart of Times Square, and just under the wire…launching The Greg Brady Project. He also became an honorary member of the Air Force, got his own Upper Deck baseball card and appeared with Maureen on “The Singing Bee.”

In sports…

Wes Parker turned some heads when fans named him baseball’s best fielding first baseman on the all time Rawlings Gold Glove team. Meanwhile, congrats to Barry’s Dodgers on snagging Joe Torre after the New York Yankees fallout. Now, on a more personal note, let’s bring a little perspective to the only black eye on my 16-0 New England Patriots. Filming signals is nowhere near as bad as stealing a team’s play book. Do not compare Bill Belichick to Jerry Rogers (Seriously, Fairview was a bunch of dirt bags).    

In other news: the mortgage crisis made it a tough year to be an architect, and on the political front, where was Greg Brady when Dennis Kucinich saw that UFO? Barry, I want an alibi.

Sadly, the Bradys lost a few friends this year as legendary guest star Don Ho passed away at the age of 76. Character actor Dabbs Greer, who played the minister in the first episode of “The Brady Bunch” also died at the age of 90.

On a happier note, there’s lots to look forward in ’08. Barry will be back on stage (Look alive Kansas!), “My Fair Brady” will return to VH1, Sherwood Schwartz will get a star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame, and of course, we’ll be right here blogging our brains out. Happy New Year!

    This site is great. I can never get enough Brady news. I’m really enjoying Eric’s blog as well. Always funny.
