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 jkshephe] Hey Hey Barry, you are someone who seems to always be up for a challenge. So let me ask, have you ever run a marathon or ultra marathon? If not, when will you? It's really not that hard, just train, remain positive, upbeat and you will finish. I ran my first marathon at age 34, am now 40 and running my 54th marathon in a couple weeks. (hint, you don't have to run fast, just far and you can walk when you want). Hope you consider it man, it is so much fun!

A: I appreciate the suggestion. Everyone seems to forget that the first guy who ran a “marathon” died when he completed his 26 miles. I don’t want to tempt fate. More power to you. Thanks for writing.

Q: [by hayli71] What is your most fond memory off camera that involved another cast member? Who influenced you most? Yes I know that is two questions sorry. hehe

A: Florence Henderson yelling “Lunch, I gotta go, my boat is double parked”. And she has had the greatest influence on me.

Q: [by lil_lady_a] Hi Barry! I was wondering whether you knew that the Wiggles were a grunge before they became a 'kids band?' and I was also wondering whether you met any Australian celebs when you came down under, like Delta Goodrem, Guy Sebastian etc.?

A: Yes, I learned about the pre-Wiggles history. You can still see a bit of the grunge in Murray, eh? I had a great time in Australia, met lots of people, famous and not famous, and look forward to returning.

Q: [by rderoy] Barry Williams I'm glad you are on sirius radio. What do you like best on the show?

A: The freedom to say what I want, if I don’t like a song that’s okay, and playing the music I grew up with, has melodies, and I can sing along with.

Q: [by usaupallnight1] Hello, memorizing your lines must be the hardest part of any actor, how hard was it for you?

A: Honestly, the easiest part of the job. It’s more difficult memorizing a whole script for a play but there is more time to rehearse.

Q: [by ltonietti] I enjoyed watching the Bradys because I was the same age as you were growing up.I was born 9/30/54. So when my 4 children have watched the reruns through the years, I can look back and see the actual era and happenings of the time as they happened to me. Its just a bit of the old days. I think the 60's were the greatest time to grow, as so much was changing in the world. We were all a part of it. What do you think about growing up in the 60's?

A: It was a very radical period in my development and in the country. There was a great struggle between the fifties values and the sixties morality. Frankly, I enjoyed the seventies even more.

Q: [by dcavazos5] On of my favorite movie is the strange "Wild In The Streets. I know you had a small role in it, very different character than "Greg". Can you tell about how you got the part? Was it before or around the Brady Bunch? Thanks, Dom Cavazos

A: I got the part the same way I got all of my parts. I auditioned. It was two years before the Brady Bunch and I played the Lead Character as a young boy.

Q: [by megamixxmatt] Barry, what city were you in when the family was jogging down the street during the episode where Alice's drill sergeant cousin was in charge. I noticed the street sign you jogged past was 'June'. I know its a weird question, but I was just curious. Matt

A: The Hancock Park neighborhood of Los Angeles

Q: [by sidfairgate] I remember you did "Born Yesterday" at the La Mirada Civic Light Opera with Priscilla Barnes several years ago. How was that show like to work on, and did you enjoy working with Priscilla Barnes?

A: Nice person, good actress and the best legs I have ever seen.

Q: [by dutch_59701] Did you ever like The Bad News Bears movies?

A: I enjoyed the first one especially. Normally my taste runs to more adult themes.
