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 lush466] Hi again Barry, I notice in your credits that you were on General Hospital in 1969 and 1984. I'm a fan but missed those years. Did you play the same character during both stints? And what did you think of the experience being on a soap? I'm sure it's a lot of work, but I would think with the right role it could be really fun. Are soaps something you would like to do again? Thanks, Melinda

A: It is a lot of work and a lot of fun. It’s challenging but the good part is you get to go to work, go home and sleep in your own bed. No the roles were not the same. I had not yet even started the Brady Bunch when I first appeared on the show as a patient being treated for an arrhythmic heart. In ’84 I did about 6 episodes as a choreographer promising stardom to the women of Port Charles and then sending them off on a bus, not to Broadway but to the Bronx.

Q: [by jyrebel] Are you friends with Michael Young from "Kids are people too?"

A: We are very good friends. I see him often socially. We collaborated as producers, directors and performers and traveled all over the world during the eighties, performing for our troops in USO Christmas Tours. I see you are from Florida, a place he enjoys very much.

Q: [by kate] Barry – I always loved all of the episodes for the last 20 or so years. It's just so comforting seeing Brady Bunch on. Question is, which episode do you think had the best message portrayed? Thanks! Kate

A: When Peter became a “hero” and then too big for his britches. Lesson learned: it’s not enough to only think about yourself.

Q: [by sand_eye_jones] Hey Barry! Do you or have you ever thought about doing a show in Vegas? I am a hard core brady fan, and l love to share the show with the younger generation. What ever happened to family values?

A: I have a show which I perform for all types of functions, including Lass Vegas. It includes about 12 pop songs mostly from my CD, video, costumes, and dance dance dance. Thank you for asking.

Q: [by scottjason] How did Barry get hooked up with the Wiggles? "Wags Keep on Barking" is great!

A: I met them doing a talk show in Australia. I was promoting my live music show and they were making a Christmas album. We hit it off and their manager invited me to do a duet with Greg. They are a great group of guys. I took my then 2yr old son to see them live in Los Angeles. It was his first ever concert and he loved it.

Q: [by Astephanie7] Barry do you still have the Johnny Bravo Jacket today?

A: Well, yes and no. I do have a Johnny Bravo jacket but not the Johnny Bravo Jacket. The one used in the show was owned by a costume company. I had a duplicate made for my live act.

Q: [by neinhorn] I am 9 years old. Why didn't you become a singer?

A: Good news, I did. Check out the website for shows, concerts, tours and CD’s. Thanks for writing.

Q: [by barrywood] Are you a Cher fan and have you ever met the woman? Thank you, Barry.

A: Yes I am a fan and yes I have met her several times at various events. The most recent was the Billboard Music Awards show.

Q: [by ahimsa] My boyfriend and I travel out west every summer, and would love to see the ghost town that the Brady's visited in the 3 part episode. Was the ghost town a set in Hollywood, or was it filmed on location at an actual ghost town? What is the name and location of the ghost town? Did you have fun filming there? Thanks! Sabrina :)

A: First, greeting to Myrtle Beach, SC. I spent a summer there a few years ago doing a show with Debbie Boone and loved the people and the area. The golf courses aren’t bad either. I have no idea where that little town is that we filmed the Ghost Town portion of our Grtand Canyon adventure. Most of the episode, for instance the jail sequences, were on a set. We pretty much just drove through a little town in the desert. I would love to know if you find out where we were. Good luck.

Q: [by calabresenan] If Bravo ever did a classic show Texas Hold em, how many of the Brady's know how to play poker.

A: I know enough for all of us. For sure Susan, Chris, Michael and myself. Cannot speak for Florence but something tells me she is a bit of a gambler. So at least four out of eight.
