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 Computergrg] How Tall Barry Williams really is?? What I really wanted to know is: Was Robert Reed Taller than you Barry even after you reached your full height? I saw an episode with Robert Reed standing next to Joe Namath who's 6 feet 2 inches tall and also Don Drysdale who was 6 feet 6 inches tall just like my cousin Peter is… Greg Bonacich

A: OK OK I get that you are into the height thing and the size thing. Robert Reed was 6’ 3" and I am just under six feet. So he was always taller than I.

Q: [by shevys] Hi Barry. My daughter is nine years old and is a huge Barry Williams fan. Several weeks ago she submitted a question to you about whether you would visit for dinner if you were ever in Maine. Can you PLEASE answer her on your site so I can finally show her an answer and she'll stop asking me "Did he write back yet?" Thanks. By the way, I grew up a huge Brady fan and we all enjoy watching the show together. -Darren

A: I appreciate your request and I would be happy to meet you at a personal appearance event near your area when I am there although none are currently scheduled. Thanks, Barry

Q: [by Emipip] Hi Barry. What current sitcoms do you enjoy watching?

A: I enjoy many of the current sitcoms. Friends, Fraiser, Spin City, Will and Grace, Everybody Loves Raymond and King of Queens are among my favorites.

Q: [by gregtiderington] Hi Barry, Do you know David Cassidy, since he was in the same era as you and do you ever keep in contact with him? Also, will there ever be another Brady Bunch T.V. movie reunion because the last one looked so depressing in the mini-series of "The Brady's"?

A: The Partridge Family and the Brady’s filmed at different studios so we did not socialize together much. Danny Bonaduce and Chris Knight were friendly because they were real life neighbors. I have met David a couple of times but never developed a friendship with him. I have a lot of respect for what he has accomplished and know he is currently playing a review with Sheena Easton in Las Vegas where he makes his home. No new Brady reunions are in the planning stages that I am aware of(and I think I would be aware) but never say never!

Q: [by Chuck-Kopsho] Dear Barry, The interior set for the Brady house looked big on TV. When you were on the set, was the set as big in person, or was it smaller? Thanks in advance!

A: Our set was the largest permanent set at Paramount Studios and it was huge. Have you ever noticed that the design inside is in the reverse of the exterior shot that is used for the house? That is, the tall side looking from the outside is on screen left and the large side on the inside is screen right.

Q: [by Rubyeye324] Hello Barry – What is one of your fondest memories from your concerts to support for your new C.D. Any memorable fans? Thanks, -Viv

A: I had such a wonderful summer doing concerts on the same bill with Christina Aguilera, Jewel, 98 degrees, Jessica Simpson, Melissa Etheridge, and others it is hard to pick a favorite. One that stands out however is being invited by my friends in Smashmouth to join them onstage and sing All Star with them and 17,000 of their closest friends.

Q: [by msc4041] In "Police Woman" episode: GENERATION OF EVIL(1976)playing Steve Glass, how did it feel to be a kidnapped victim even if it was a fictional TV show? Did you suffer terribly like the real thing? Incidentally, I taped that episode on the screen gems network over the summer. How did it feel getting beat up and brutalized by Anthony Carbone and Claude Earl Jones? You weren't REALLY beat up or hurt, were you?

A: Things aren’t always as they appear - especially in television. It was a pleasure to be a part of Police Woman and while some of the stunts were demanding, no one got hurt. I’m glad you had a chance to see it, it was good to do something non-Brady.

Q: [by chikarl] Hi Barry, Do you have any plans on releasing a CD with old material that would have made up your solo album and the tracks you did in the late 70's? Thanks for taking the time answering my question. I will look forward to you in Sound of Music in Cupertino! Karl

A: Plans for another CD are to use original material. The concept behind The Return of Johnny Bravo was to visit growing up eras I thought people could relate to and enjoy hearing me sing. I feel like I have covered that area so I am busy writing new things.

Q: [by Trip7slady] Hi Barry! If you could relive one special moment in your life what would it be and why? Thank you for being so kind to your fans and thank you for sharing with us! God Bless

A: The first time I stepped on the stage on Broadway doing Pippin to sing Corner of the Sky. I was so excited the moment came and went without my being able to fully experience it. Now that I have several shows under my belt I would be more grounded and able to take it all in.

Q: [by TheRedOne4U] Hi Barry!!! I had the extreme pleasure of seeing you in The Sound of Music in November in Fla. and you were absolutely fantastic!!!! My question is, is there a role in any musical that you have not yet had a chance to play that you would like to do and if so what role and why?? You are a consummate performer Barry and thank you for all of the many years of enjoyment you've provided!! Thanks!! Mary H.

A: The three roles I have enjoyed most are Harold Hill in The Music Man, Stone in City of Angels, and Captain von Trapp in The Sound of Music. What I would really like to do is an original musical from workshop to Broadway and create my own role.
