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 jbeckster99] Hi Barry, I like everyone else hold ther Brady bunch series dear. My question to you is Do you have any thoughts or memories about the actors james stacy and Wayne Maunder who you worked with on the television series Lancer? I am putting together a website and would appreciate anything you can offer about these two men thanks.

A: My episode of Lancer was filmed the summer before we shot the Brady Pilot. I was of course very young and very impressed with the great Western set we were using. Gene Nelson directed, JD Gannon was a guest star. James and Wayne were very cordial. I don’t have specific memories from the shoot but in a more general way it was a positive experience. Good luck with your website.

Q: [by cogitolateral] Dear Barry, Of all the directors used throughout the run of the show, which one in your opinion related the best to you and your psuedo-siblings; thereby eliciting the best performances.

A: Richard Michaels and Jack Arnold.

Q: [by averybradyfan] Do you like Harry Potter? If you do who's your favorite character? You are my hero. What was it like being on the best show in the world ? can you send me e-mails?

A: Why, Harry of course. He gets the coolest things to do.

Q: [by Niagaralaser4] Hi Barry, Hope you stay on the screen, you been with us for are whole life. great infomercial you did for time life 70's cds. can you tell me who is the women in that infomercial with you? i see her quite a bit in commercials. the two of you make a great team! David

A: She was great to work with and I thought she did a great job too. She is very active in the world of infomercials. I’m sorry, I met her for the first time on the set and don’t recall her name… anybody?

Q: [by vmnrao] Hi Barry, I was wondering if you recall any details from your musical recordings with the Brady Kids such as the "Kids from the Brady Bunch" album. Anything would be great, Specifically, I'm wondering if you remember who any of the studio musicians were from those albums? I've listened to the song "Drummer Man" and it sounds an awful lot like studio-master John Guerin on drums, but the musicians are uncredited on all those albums. You remember anything from these recordings?

A: The one thing that stands out about recording the Brady albums is that the producer would mike us individually in case he needed to turn one of the microphones off. Also our backup singers were the same ones used for the Partridge Family albums.

Q: [by JTWelch86] When you did your scene with Christopher Daniel Barnes in "The Brady Bunch Movie", how did you feel about having to play a record executive who turned down "Till I Met You"? I know you co-wrote the song with Sherwood and Lloyd Schwartz.

A: I thought it was a very funny idea. It was very much in line with the flavor of the movie. I do wish Christopher had not portrayed “Greg” as such a dork.

Q: [by leanne82] Hi Barry, Just saw the Full House episode you guest starred in. Was that you singing on the track they said was 'Barry and the Rippers'? It didn't really sound like you to me. Did you enjoy doing the show and did you get to meet any of the cast apart from Dave and John? Did you watch Full House? Also I was wondering do you think Full House was The Brady Bunch of the late 80s and early 90s or not really? Thanks and keep on doing what you love to do! Leanne

A: No, it was not my voice. I had a great time guesting on the show; Dave Coulier is now a friend of mine. I don’t think Full House is all that similar to The Brady Bunch, not enough kids.

Q: [by chavalabobby] If you wanted to do a cop movie, what movie would you do, Lethal Weapon, Bad Boys, Die Hard, Beverly Hills Cop or Dirty Harry?

A: That would have to be Lethal Weapon

Q: [by ndpeters104] What has kept you grounded and humble all these years?

A: My run away ego. (kidding) I take my work seriously and myself not so seriously.

Q: [by david] I know you did "Romance, Romance" on Broadway. Do you get chances to work in the theatre very often?

A: The majority of my career has been on stage. I have appeared in 75 different stage productions. Favorites have been City of Angels, The Sound of Music, The Music Man and Westside Story.
