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…

Q: [by danloririchman] What do you think of all this retro or "return to your childhood themes" on TV these days?

A: I think the current retro trend helped get my book turned into a telemovie so I won’t complain.

Q: [by CLEOKM08] Dear Barry, What was it like meeting the Partridge Family, and did you get to meet David Cassidy and Susan Dey as well? What was it like meeting them and once you all met, were you all friends or did you associate with them after you met them? Love Always, Kate McGuire

A: Yes, I have met all of the Partridge cast. I can’t say I know them because I haven’t spent a great deal of time with any of them except Danny Bonaduce, whom I consider a friend. I did find the others to be pleasant.

Q: [by sheilakmason] Hi Barry. I have just finished watching the last episode of the "Grand Canyon". I was wondering how that trip was, and have you been back since? Also, I was wondering if you have any siblings, and if so, did you all face some of the same problems as the Brady kids such as when Bobby wanted a trophy because everyone else had one, or when Greg and Marcia fought over who would get the Attic room?

A: The Grand Canyon is a very exciting place to go.. but after the first 10 minute4s it was all work. I have been back to that area many times because I love to water ski and have taken my boat up parts of the Colorado River. Regarding the second part of your question, the experiences I had with my own two brothers were different from the ones we had with the Brady’s.

Q: [by cierram] Hi Barry! I met you today in Newark, Delaware & thought you were very attractive, funny & very personable! I was thrilled to meet you! I am curious to know if this is your 1st marriage and also how often you come to Delaware? Do you have any children?

A: I am very happily married for the second and last time. As you may known my wife, Eila, is from Newark, DE. We visit at least a couple of times a year and I very much enjoy the area. Neither of us has children - yet.

Q: [by sculley] Hi Barry: Have you ever seen the movie Grease? If you have seen it, did you like it?

A: Sure I have seen the movie Grease. It is a lot of fun to watch. Also I played Danny Zuko in several productions of the musical and had a great time with the role.

Q: [by kygal2] Hello Barry: I saw you at The Catholic University of America on April 13 and thought you were fantastic! My question is this – Do you think the Bunch will ever get back together to do another reunion show?

A: I never say never, but I think it is unlikely the Bunch will have a full reunion. Unfortunately, Maureen and Eve are more comfortable distancing themselves in a professional way from their Brady ties, but who knows?

Q: [by purpleladydi99] I bet there were alot of outtakes in the BBUNCH. Would you ever do a special of outtakes?

A: I once tried to get outtakes from our show. Most were never saved and i was unable to locate enough footage to put anything worhtwhile together.

Q: [by purpleladydi99] Barry, what do you think of tv sitcoms, etc., today? I don't think the family quality of Brady Bunch is there any more. Diane.

A: Television runs in cycles. The sweet and the innocent and then the satirical like All In The Family or Sanford and Son and then the sarcastic like Roseanne. They will all come around again and there are some funny shows on now. The good news is that there are whole networks devoted to family programming now including Nick at Nite, TV Land, PAX, and Disney so you can always find something.

Q: [by fla_grl2000] Hi Barry! Thanks for answering my last question about doing another tv series. Since I discovered this Web site, I've become a born-again Brady fan. I had a huge crush on Greg when I was a kid in the 70s(and, um, still kind of do!) But I can't imagine having the kind of access to celebrities back then that we have now with email and online chats(BTW, I'm looking forward to your next chat at NBC!). It's great that you make yourself so accessible to fans, but do you find it hard to maintain your privacy and to get fans to separate the real you from your Greg persona?

A: I am responsible for maintaining my privacy and I don’t try to get fans to distinguish the difference between me and my TV character. The bright ones automatically do that.

Q: [by alongo8519] From Anthony age 9: In the episode when you went to Hawaii, where you really in Hawaii ? Matthew age 7: Where you really in a real house during filming?

A: Sure we really filmed in Hawaii and yes I did all my own surfing too. The house is real from the outside but we filmed our show on a soundstage set which only looks like a real house.
