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 Kate] Hi Barry! I was wondering what some of your favorite names are. What would you name you child if you had one? Thanks!

A: I tend to like names that can easily be spelled, not too common and are not easily shortened. Amber, Charlotte, are nice girl names and Eric for a boy.

Q: [by camel1963] Hi Barry, On the Brady Bunch episode when you all had a chance to record a song and Peter's voice changed, was that fake or was it really changing like the song said time to change. Hope you can answer my question sir thanks. Camille

A: Hi Camille, Even though that was about the same time Christopher Knight’s voice was changing in real life, we filmed that episode before his voice was croaking and cracking. Acting all acting.

Q: [by Vance714] Barry- What do you do to prepare for going on stage? Thanks!

A: Vocalizing, stretches, push against a wall to help get grounded, a few minutes of quiet time to get centered. Then I brush my teeth and go!

Q: [by Emipip] Hi Barry. We all know you dated Maureen McCormick, but are there any other "famous" names we may recognize on the list of your previous acquaintances?

A: I hope this doesn’t sound like I am avoiding your question. I rarely if ever discuss relationships I have had with the exception of the Brady’s. The reason for the exception is that it has been unavoidable. I don’t think it’s fair to bring other people into the spotlight without their agreement. There are no former "leading ladies" I would want to ask for permission. I did discuss the content of Growing Up Brady with my TV Family so there wouldn’t be any surprises. Also that story is as much about growing up as it is about who we grew up with. Thanks for asking though and if you date anyone famous I will respect your right to keep it to yourself.

Q: [by mlscoob] Hi Barry, in one of your interviews you said the original Brady Bunch set was destroyed in a earthquake!! Was that before or after the series was canceled?? What happened to all the furniture in that set??? Thanks -Marc-

A: The earthquake was several years after we finished filming. I don’t know what happened to the original furniture. It is studio policy to use props and clothes and furniture for different productions so my guess is once we finished filming various couches, chairs and desks etc. were used in other shows.

Q: [by girir] Barry, What do you think of John Travolta? Have you ever met him? If so is he really as nice as people make him out to be?

A: I have met him but don’t know him well. I think he is a fine actor and has had an amazing career. I have seen most of his movies.

Q: [by Vance714] Dear Mr. Williams, now that you've finished a successful run with TSOM, what's next after vacation? Love, Aimée

A: Only time will tell - stay tuned.

Q: [by Schliss1] Hello Mr. Williams how are you? I know you enjoy performing in the theater, so I have a question. Did you ever see the show "The Real Live Brady Bunch"? If you did, what did you think of it?

A: Yes I did see The Real Live Brady Bunch several years ago in Los Angeles. The best part of the show was the audience. They knew every line, sang along with the songs, came to the show dressed in seventies garb. Without them it would not have been nearly as fun. Especially because half the audience was staring at me to get my reaction to what was going on onstage.

Q: [by Vance714] Barry – Pepsi or Coke?

A: You’re going to think I am making this up but it is Ginger Ale. I haven’t had a Pepsi or a Coke in years.

Q: [by Sstorms] Hi Barry! Do you like Stevie Nicks? Have you heard her new album yet?

A: Yes I like Stevie Nicks. I even have an autographed picture of her. Haven’t heard the Album yet but I’ll check it out. She is a wonderful writer and singer so I’m betting it’s good. Also it’s been a while since she did a new album so maybe she’s been saving up.
