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 leanne_good] Dear Mr. Williams, would you ever consider writing another book, about your life after Brady in theatre etc, or else a fiction book? Do you have any more plans to write in future. I loved your book Growing Up Brady, and found it a great, entertaining read. Leanne

A: Yes, I would like to write another book. I would want to stay away from autobiographical material in a literal way. I have spent a great deal of time on the road, touring and traveling and I have often thought it would be interesting to fictionalize some of the stories and call it "Road Warrior".

Q: [by computergrg] What was it like working with Christopher Knight on the Brady Bunch?? Chris reminds me an awful lot of myself because he's a computer buff like I am? Did you and Chris get along off the set?

A: Christopher Knight was and continues to be a close friend. He liked to goof around a lot on the set and never took things too seriously. I liked that about him. Next week he is coming to see my production of The Sound of Music in Reno, NV.

Q: [by jk9nxm2m] Have you ever seen the BACKSTREETBOYS?

A: Yes. This past Christmas I performed at a fund raiser for Howie D. We did it in Orlando and raised money for his sister and Lupus. They are really cool guys, as nice as can be and I love their music.

Q: [by KissaSue] What is your favorite food? My friend wants to know if you liked all the movies you did?

A: I really enjoy a good piece of grilled Mahi Mahi. It is a delicious fish and can be served lots of different ways. I first had it when we filmed our Brady Hawaiian episodes so that probably is another reason I enjoy it so much. As far as movies and episodes: I liked some better than others. We did 117 episodes of the Brady Bunch and I liked a lot more of them than not.

Q: [by rllanes] Hello Barry! How was Hollywood life back in the 70s? Do you still have those postcard pictures of the family from your fan club way back? I would love to have one for my collection since I lost my original.

A: I thought it was great growing up in the seventies. I enjoyed doing the series, disco was the rage and of course we had all those super groovy fashion styles to choose from. All of the merchandise that I have available is on my website. I am also aware that ebay carries a lot of merchandise and you may have luck hunting for those postcards there. Good luck and keep on groovin’, Barry W

Q: [by kstball] Were you nervous every time you went on a episode of the Brady Bunch.

A: Heck no we weren’t nervous. We all knew each other so well and got along. Plus in television if you make a mistake they roll the cameras again. Sometimes I got nervous being around Maureen when I was fifteen, but that is a different type of nervousness.

Q: [by rstuller] Was it a lot of work and what kind of things did you do when you were waiting on the Brady Bunch set?

A: Sure it was a lot of work. We often put in 10 and 12 hour days. Through much of the filming when we weren’t required on the set we were in school. During the summer we visited the other soundstages that were filming The Odd Couple, Bonanza, Mission Impossible, and movies being filmed there at Paramount.

Q: [by sailor1313] Were any of the Brady cast members Jewish?

A: Not the cast but of course Sherwood Schwartz who created all of the characters is Jewish.

Q: [by Kittykaat] Hi Barry! I just recently saw an episode of Three's Company that you were on and i loved it! What do you think of John Ritter and Joyce Dewitt?

A: I was a big fan of Three’s Company before I was invited to guest star on the show. It was great getting to work with them. John is an extremely talented actor and Joyce was a doll.

Q: [by alicia] How did you like being on the Brady Bunch show? Was it hard work? If so was it ever fun and did u ever get tired of being on the show?

A: I thoroughly enjoyed working on the Brady Bunch. We had a very happy set and we all were, and continue to be friends. I can say that there were times I got tired, but not tired of doing the show.
