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 Nancireal] Are you a baseball fan? What is your favorite team? what is the last baseball game you saw at a stadium.

A: The Dodgers. I threw out the first pitch this past June and I have sung the National Anthem there a couple of times.

Q: [by biz] Barry, I can still remember when I was a kid watching the episode where Bobby put too much laundry soap into the machine. How did you get all those bubbles in that room? And Did Mike Lookinland have the time of his life walking around with bubbles over his head, or what? As a kid I thought it would be a blast to try something like that. What brand of laundry detergent and how much do I need to recreate the experience in the comfort of my own home?

A: I hope you don’t try the bubble stunt at home. We have professionals overseeing that type of thing. The property masters are actually the ones you should direct your questions to. I don’t think it much matters what “brand” of detergent you use. I can tell you Michael Lookinland had a blast filming the sequence.

Q: [by deedee93560] When you worked on the set with extra's, were you permitted to mix with them and play together? My girls used to work as extra's, and I always found it interesting how some sets intentionally kept the kids apart.

A: Ours was an open and friendly set. We went to school with the day players and socialized. They were not isolated from us, which I think is a good thing.

Q: [by MIKEANDCHERIE] Were you nervous when you auditioned for the Brady Bunch?

A: No. There were so many people auditioning I didn’t think I had a chance at being a regular so I didn’t worry about it. Maybe there is a lesson in there for me. Take care. Barry

Q: [by kemeigen] Hi Barry – We love you and listen to the Sunshine Day CD almost everyday at work. Cheyenne is my favorite song. We all sing along to all our faves! So my question is this: Was Cindy's lisp fake or did Susan Olsen really have a lisp? Have a good one! Oh, and, what is a "makeshift model TA"?

A: Cindy’s lisp was real. Susan Olsen had it surgically corrected after we finished filming our original show. A model “T” the “A” is the type of Model T. A very old Ford.

Q: [by bradleyforsythe] Barry, I read in your bio that you once appeared on the "Andy Griffith Show". For years, I've tried to figure out what episode you were in. Help me out if you would! Thanks!

A: You are very resourceful. I never did appear in The Andy Griffith Show and the mention was an error in my biography. I have since corrected that.

Q: [by sparty611] Hello ! I would like to know, before you starred in the Brady Bunch, if you collected baseball cards. Also, which player was your favorite even if you didn't collect cards ? It'll be fun hearing an answer from you ! Take it easy !!! – Craig

A: I was not a baseball card collector. I did love baseball and played several years of Little League. My favorite player? Why Don Drysdale of course.

Q: [by alwaysgo] Do you remember the Brady episodes of when Don Drysdale and Wes Parker made guest appearances? What was it like meeting them? Were you a Dodger fan at that time and did you go to a few games at Dodger stadium on your spare time back then?

A: Do I remember??? Yes, and I was a huge Dodger fan. Wes was a very nice guy (even if he was dating my school teacher that I had a crush on in the show) and Don was plain ole bigger than life. Great guy great time plus he taught me how to throw a curve ball.

Q: [by jasonmich] Hi Barry, Are you a Donna Summer fan? She's touring this summer, so if you are a fan, you should definitely consider going!!

A: I’ll go on line and find out when and where she is performing and I am there. She doesn’t just do disco she is disco. I can’t wait.

Q: [by Flchadderbox] What lessons in life do you feel that GROWING UP BRADY can you pass on to your own Son today? That today's Kids are missing?

A: Communication, teamwork, honesty, responsibility, benevolence, a sense of fashion and leave your step-sister alone.
