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 codybug] Hello, I am a 29 year old female who grew up watching your show. I have two boys who still watch today, every chance we get. I am wondering if the set of the Brady Bunch is still at a location or has it been removed? I have always wondered what it would be like to see it in person.

A: The Brady "set" was taken down and stored shortly after our show was canceled in 1974. Later it was destroyed, along with a number of other sets, by a California earthquake. The entire set was rebuilt for the Brady Movies and then stored. I had the house reassembled for Growing Up Brady a few months ago and they are currently back in storage. The exterior of the house is in North Hollywood, it is a real home and you can see a picture of it in my book.

Q: [by banhart] Hi Barry, I have a question I've wanted to know about for years. In the episode where Greg gets even with Peter and Bobby by faking a UFO, what happened to your lip? It looks like it is taped. Also thank you for your time. Donald A. Banhart.

A: The show must go on. While filming that episode I was involved in a head on collision with another car. I tore my lower lip on the steering wheel, had several stitches and covered it up with a band aid for filming.

Q: [by jillber] I just saw you on Loveline the other night. I think you are way cuter than Adam!!! No contest. Are you still married??

A: Thanks for the compliment. I have a question. What do you mean STILL married? The answer is yes, but just for 14 1/2 months. I guess maybe by Hollywood standards that’s a marathon. (Maybe that’s why I enjoy living in New York.)

Q: [by Mariolosangeles] During the Brady Bunch Years, did you and the other cast members ever socialize with people who weren't stars, actors, etc…? Did you ever hangout with just regular people?

A: Sure we socialized with "regular" people. I really like the fact that I have friends in all kinds of businesses and with different responsiblities and live in different countries.

Q: [by jjconlin] Hi Barry, my girlfriend and I have a bet that you were in the movie "The Ice Storm." Were you one of the men at the "key" party..smoking a cigar? Please settle our bet. Thank you, Joe

A: Ice Storm is one of my favorite movies. I would have loved to have been in it but unfortunately I was not. I hope you didn’t lose too much money.

Q: [by jerasaurus] Hi Barry, I wonder if you still have possession of that black(possibly navy) and white horizontally striped shirt that you wore on several of the later episodes? The dark stripes were thin at the bottom, thick at the top. If so, are you taking bids? Also, thanks for being so good to your fans.

A: It’s funny that at the time I never thought any of our Brady wardrobe would be worth any more than anyone else’s used clothes. No, I don’t have the striped shirt - and you are right the stripes are navy blue.

Q: [by kimmccray] Barry, I met you years ago in Flint, Michigan when you performed at the Star Theater. We were in the elevator at the Hyatt Regency Hotel and you were with two people and I was with a relative and you kept asking us numerous questions. I never had the opportunity to ask you one. I have quite a few, but what I would really like to know is: Do you prefer performing on stage or television?

A: One of the things I am grateful for in my career is that I move freely between mediums. I work in television, in showrooms, onstage, writing, singing and there are advantages to each. If I had to choose one I would say that performing onstage is the most gratifying. There is more control, it is a shared experience with the audience, and unlike film, you go from the start to the finish in one evening. Don’t wait so long next time to ask a question. Take care.

Q: [by Privarteboy140] Barry, have you ever been skiing? If so, which ski resort is your favorite? Skiing is COOL! Please let me know what you think.

A: Sure I love skiing. Along with snowboarding skiing is the closest thing to my all time favorite sport surfing. It’s hard to pick a favorite resort because there are so many nice ones. I’ve enjoyed Aspen, Vail, Mammoth Mountain in California, Mount Bachelor in Oregon but I think some of my favorite experiences while skiing are from Steamboat Springs Colorado.

Q: [by star189] Hi Barry! You are my most favorite actor. What is your favorite Brady Bunch album? I have The Brady Bunch Greatest Hits: It's a Sunshine Day and I love it!

A: My favorite Brady album would be Sunshine Day. It has a pretty good mix of all our early songs both as a group and as solos.

Q: [by purpleladydi99] Hi Barry, Just wondering, What was your favorite BRADY REUNION SPECIAL. I like the one when you and CHRIS KNIGHT were fighting, but don't recall the title.

A: I think my favorite reunion was A Very Brady Christmas. Much of the plot is silly but it does include all the Brady values and there is something sentimental about it. I recall fighting with Peter Brady but don’t recall the title either. Fans?
