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 jchenson130] Hi Barry, Big Fan of the Brady Bunch, I grew up in the 70's as well. One question, in the movie "The Wilderness Family" did you do the songs? On the credits it list Barry Williams as the singer. Just wanted to ask, it sounds like you but just wanted to confirm it. Sure would like to know……. Please write me and let me know. Sincerely, Sondra Henson

A: You have a good ear. Yes, that is me singing the songs for that movie.

Q: [by viking_camper] Hi, I'm desperate. I belong to a few camping clubs and pop up trailer camping forums. We have several thousand members and all came to the same conclusion. In the Grand Canyon episode of the Brady Bunch, you camped in a pop up trailer. We all can't figure out who made the camper. Of course it's most of our favorite episode. Do you possibly remember what kind of camper it was? (Coleman, Coachmen, Viking and so on). If you could you will have cleared up a mystery that has plagued us for years.

A: Ya know I have wondered the exact same thing. If you find out, please let me know. Somebody???

Q: [by krenee420] Hi Barry – first off, I want to say that it was awesome to see you and Chris on That 70's Show. I loved the joke about people thinking you were brothers. You two work great together and your chemistry/friendship was evident in your performances. I never watch that show but wanted to see your episode and I am so glad I saw it. You two should have your own sitcom. I also saw your TV Land special and it was great to get a glimpse into your everyday life. I met you at a Monkees concert when you opened for them a few years ago – you were so sweet and kind – thank you so much for that moment. I hope you don't mind a Brady question – but I have all the DVD's now and I have two questions – one is about the 5th season ep where Greg and Marcia challenged each other to see who was the better driver. Were you and Maureen doing all your own driving? How many takes did those shots take, if you remember…also, how come Paramount didn't add special features for seasons 2-5? I enjoyed the commentaries on the 1st season and think it's a huge loss not to have had any features on the others. Hope you get to reply – I think it's awesome you update this so often. You're the best Barry, take care (P.S. – saw your infomercial for the Time-Life 70's cd package – got it – love it!!!)

A: Okay first the thing about the driving --- phony phony phony. Everyone knows Greg is a superior driver to Marcia, but the script insisted she win. Yes, we did our own driving but Maureen had to do several more takes than I did to get it right. She kept knocking over the cones.

Q: [by Bla375] Loved your stint in that 70's show last night how many takes did the kiss take and were you laughing?

A: Laughing? No, I got into it.

Q: [by rkg1] Barry, What was a typical work week when making the Brady Bunch…In other words was it like a typical 9-5 Monday – Friday work week or did the times and days vary? Also what months during the year did you guys work?

A: The schedule varied every year. Basically though our days were from at 8am to 6pm. School was three accumulative hours per day. We had two on set teachers. Maureen and I were in “high school” and the other four kids were together. Our filming season ran from June until late November.

Q: [by ptelfer79] I saw you on an episode of fear factor. I was wondering how did you like being on the show.

A: I liked everything about doing the show except not winning. I was grateful I didn’t have to eat anything gross.

Q: [by chapmantodd] Hey Barry, At what age did you start your acting carear, Are there any acting rolls comming up in the future.

A: I started when I was 11 years old. My first TV show was Run for Your Life with Ben Gazzara. I have had a very busy year with According To Jim, That Seventies Show, Inside TV Land, and my Las Vegas Show. There are several more projects being considered but none have been finalized.

Q: [by vmnrao4] Hi Barry – just saw your "Living in TV Land" show and it was a great blend of scripted humor and real life situations. My question has to do with a song you did with the Brady Kids way back when called "Candy (Sugar Shoppe)". The lyrics for this song have always seemed a little inappropriate for kids to be singing. Did you guys have any idea what the song lyrics implied when you did it? Any idea why they would have you perform such a song? Always wondered about this song, as it doesn't really fit with the rest of the tunes.

A: Until you mentioned it I didn’t even know the song had an alternative meaning. It was selected like all of the others, what was popular at the time. I don’t think it was used as a double entendre.

Q: [by chavalabobby] What was it like working with Adam Sandler and David Spade?

A: David is a great guy. He is very natural in front of the camera, very professional and generous as an actor. It would be more appropriate to say I have worked for Adam Sandler than with him. His company was one of the producers of Dickie Roberts.

Q: [by erich] What is your ancestry? (Irish? Jewish? Italian?)

A: I am Scotch/English/Irish.
