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 CLEOKM08] Hello Barry, I was re-reading the Growing Up Brady book, on the section Chlorine and Candlelight, and I was wondering what Bread album you had playing in your room when Mo was with you? I have been wondering that for a while, so now I'm asking you. Thank You for all your help Mr. Williams. Love, Kate

A: I actually had two albums on the turntable. The Bread album had a blue cover and "Baby I’m a Want You" on it. The other was Barry White’s Ston’ Gone.

Q: [by Vance714] Hello Mr. Williams – I was just wondering what you do to get a way from it all. Are you a soft music, candles, read or just relax type, or do you kind of go out and 'dance your troubles away'? Thanks, Aimee

A: There are a few things I really enjoy to relax. Tennis is very relaxing for me and so is golf though I rarely play. If I don’t want to be too active I will read a good novel or see a movie. Nothing beats sitting on the beach.

Q: [by Rubyeye324] Barry, some favorite questions: actor? form of acting? #1 song to sing? Have heard some rumors that you may have plans to start a family soon. Are these true, and if so, how soon? Thanks

A: Sean Connery
Acting style is a difficult thing to pin down. I am most comfortable watching an actor when I don’t see technique and am free just to believe what I see.
Your Song - Elton John
I have been married for just two years. We would like to have a family at some point but it is not in our current plans. If anything changes I’ll be sure to let you know.

Q: [by Anonymous] Hi Barry. I have heard that you and the other "Bradys" are close friends to this day. How often do you actually see or talk to each other? Are ALL of you really good friends or are you closer to some than others? Thanks!

A: Yes, we are all good friends. Like with any family there can be periods of time that pass without seeing each other and then we pick right up again. I see Christopher Knight, Susan Olsen and Michael Lookinland the most often.

Q: [by mhoffnagl] Where did you film the episode titled "A Camping We Will Go"? Thanks.

A: It was filmed at a reservoir in the Hollywood Hills and is a location often used by film companies.

Q: [by scaint1] Hello, Barry! I think it is amazing all that you have accomplished in your long career. What do you think has helped you to stay grounded throughout your career?

A: There are a couple of things. One is having a solid supportive family growing up. The other is by not getting too caught up in the fanfare of Show Business and staying focused on the work.

Q: [by aae02310] Hello from a Dept of Navy man in Japan! I am almost finished with your book and it's great! I have two questions… 1). Understanding you may not want to be specific, but knowing you made about $1,000 per episode at the time.. how much do you earn from re-runs now? 2). Once the show became legendary(in re-runs), did Bob Reed learn to appreciate the show, or did he continue to be negative? Thanks… Doug Shepherd

A: The formula for residuals is very complex. It depends on when a show plays on what type of network, how many times etc. To summarize we are paid for all of the reunions and movies, post the original sitcom years. We do not participate financially in the Nick at Nite airings of our show. Bob wasn’t a fan of the Brady writing style and that never changed. He did marvel at the ongoing popularity of our show. But the thing he liked best about it was us kids.

Q: [by bigcheeze1389] Hey Barry, my name is Adam Vitcavage and I was just wondering in the last episode was that a wig you were wearing?

A: Yes, it was a wig. It made it a whole lot easier to get the orange out.


A: Susan Olsen has expressed interest in writing a book. She has toyed with the idea of calling it "The Youngest One In Curls". I think it is a terrific idea and have offered to help if she would like.

Q: [by Vance714] Hello Mr. Williams! I hope all is simply awesome on tour with the wonderful world of the stage. I know you have plans after TSOM to record another CD. And I loved seeing you do the teen idol specials on VH1. Would you ever consider doing a music video for 'Johnny is Back' or a song from your upcoming cd? Any other play ideas for the future? Much obliged for your time, once again. Best to you! Peace, Aimée

A: Sure I would consider doing a video. That is in fact the best way to make people aware of your record. We just finished the tour of The Sound of Music last night and as of this moment I want to take a week to relax. It has been a wonderful and intense six months and now it’s "time to change".
