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 carmenysteve] Barry, I am curious about the episode where the family builds a house of cards. The house became quite large. Were the cards glued to keep them together and how did you coordinate Tiger into spilling them? Thanks for the memories. Steve in Indianapolis

A: The "house of cards" had a thin wire running through it and when Tiger was asked to jump up on the table the wires were pulled out causing them to fall.

Q: [by bryanhornsby] Hi Barry,My question was when you were acting before the Brady Bunch were you ever offered the part on the monkees tv series X-mas show That Butch Patrick did? Butch played a spoiled rich kid that needed to learn the meaning of X-mas. And are you a fan of the Monkees music? We will see you at the show! We are fans of the Brady Bunch and we are bringing are 16 year old daughter to see the show. Thank you Bryan

A: Butch Patrick and I are the same age and we did work together or compete for many of the same roles. However to my knowledge the Monkee special was not something I was considered for.

Q: [by jimmy] Barry- I am 21 years old, and a big Brady fan. I know you are a Beatles fan, and so am I. I just wanted to know if you have met any of the Fab 4, and how did you feel when you heard about the passing of George Harrison? I myself cried a little. Thanks for your time. -John

A: One of my most exciting celebrity meetings was with Paul McCartney. I met him at the Academy Awards show the night he was nominated for and won for best song, "Live and Let Die." Like you I was very saddened by the passing of George.

Q: [by stormspotter73] Hey Barry(Greg), How many hours did the Brady kids practice their script each day(how long did it take to make one episode)

A: Our schedule was usually four days per half hour episode. We would rehearse each scene immediately before filming it as opposed to taped shows which rehearse for a week and then tape all at once.

Q: [by dopeyd] Hi Barry, as a Backstreet Boys fan(specifically Howie) I'm really interested as to how you got involved with the Dorough Lupus Foundation? Lupus is such an under publicized disease and its great that you have chosen it as an outlet for your charitable efforts. BTW, had the pleasure of seeing you at Lupus 2001(front row!), will we see you again this year?

A: Yes. If Howie D is having another benefit concert I will do everything possible to be there. I am doing all I can to get the word out about his foundation. He proved to be a good friend at the Celebrity Boxing match last week when he came with his sister Polly to sing the National Anthem.

Q: [by joecool_25] Hey Barry, do you have a favorite stage musical you've done, and if so, why? Also, is there a certain one you would like to do again? Thanks for your time! Joey. PS. I love the song "This is the moment" you performed for Dr. Jeckyll/Mr. Hyde. I only saw a little bit of it on Brady Bunch Home Movies and was wondering if the song is available on CD or the Internet. Thanks.

A: My favorite Musical role is Professor Harold Hill in The Music Man. I have done three tours of it and welcome the chance to do it again. This is the Moment is a song I perform regularly but have not recorded.

Q: [by andrew] Barry, have you heard Donny Osmond's new album? If so, what do you think of it?

A: I have not heard Donny’s new album yet. I like his music(he is also a very nice guy) and I’ll go out and pick it up.

Q: [by sbrooke2000] Do you like fast cars?

A: I have driven Porsches and Corvettes for years so I guess, yeah, I like fast cars. My favorite car right now is the Aston Martin convertible but I’m driving a Lexus RX300 which is a SUV. Maybe I’m getting older.

Q: [by Rubyeye324] Barry do you like Drama or comedy better?

A: Comedy.... Make ’em LAUGH.

Q: [by Vance714] Mr. Williams, Have you written any poetry/music in response to the acts of Sept. the 11th? You are a complex artist that I can picture writing in response to such amazing times…. Thank you. peace, Aimee

A: Thanks Aimee for the compliment. As we all know the events of September 11th are very troublesome. Living in New York City made it particularly impactful. I have visited ground zero four times and it is impossible for me to fully comprehend the awful reality. Yes, I have written about it and attempted to describe my feelings and that of those I know who have been directly affected by losing loved ones. I have not put my thoughts into a music or book form at this time. I think I need a little more distance from it. Thanks for asking.
