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 janlugenbuhl] Barry, are you recognized in other parts of the world? Does "The Brady Bunch" air in Europe?

A: The Brady Bunch airs all over the world and yes sometimes when traveling I am recognized from the show. I find that by far the most recognition comes from here in the States, probably because of the reunions and specials.

Q: [by KissaSue] Do you have any brothers or sisters? What are there names? How old are you and them? Did you think you grew up fast?

A: I have two older brothers and we are 3 and 4 1/2 years apart. Their names are Scott and the eldest is Craig. I am the only one in the family that is in show business and yes I think being a professional from a very young age caused me to grow up fast.

Q: [by edavila99] Hey Barry! – If I remember correctly back in 1977, I watched an episode of the "Brady Bunch Variety Hour" when you did a brilliant vocal performance of Eric Carmen's "All By Myself"! Your voice was powerful and I remember you behind the piano on that one. A friend of mine claims he recorded all the "Variety Hour" episodes when they were shown on VH1 a while back and he swears I'm hallucinating. If it wasn't on that show, it definitely was on some other show. Can you set the record straight on this one? Also, in the early 70s' I think I saw you on a Snickers commercial. How's my memory? See you in "The Sound of Music"! Thanks – Ed

A: I hope you had a bet on this one. You would have won. Yes I did sing All By Myself on The Brady Bunch Hour. It was a duet/medley with Florence Henderson who sang Traces of Love with me. The commercial I filmed was for Milky Way. Good memory Ed.

Q: [by revjds] What was your favorite group back in the 70's and what is your favorite band now. Mine is N'sync.

A: In the Seventies, as now I am a big fan of Elton John’s music. I have a number of bands I like now including Smashmouth, Everclear, Creed, and yes N’Sync.

Q: [by bbv] When the Bradys went to Hawaii, were only the "essential" scenes filmed there? I mean, were the hotel and the woods all actually in Hawaii? Was that the hotel where you were staying?

A: Everything from the outside was filmed on location. The interior scenes were filmed at Paramount Studios in Hollywood. We were there for almost three weeks and had a great time visiting the Island. To this day Hawaii is one of my favorite vacation destinations. While we were there the cast stayed at The Royal Hawaiian Hotel.

Q: [by gregtiderington] Hi Barry, Did you have a major guest-starring role in "Three's Company" playing David Windthrop?

A: Yes I did. It was great fun to do and I am glad you had a chance to catch it.

Q: [by netdispatch_lou] Hi Barry, Where do you think fate would have led you if not in the direction of showbiz? thx, from Lou in Dallas, TX

A: I have always had an interest in Law and thought Business Entertainment would have been a rewarding direction -- if I could get through law school -- and I have also been interested in medicine, which worked out well, because as we know Greg Brady is now a Doctor.

Q: [by OHIOSPOWER] Barry, I've loved the Brady Bunch for 30+years, thanks! I'm from Ohio and have been to Kings Island many times,"The Cincinnati Kid's" is a favorite. My wife and I always go to "Tangiers" restaurant in Akron, Ohio for our anniversary. On "celebrity wall" there is a photo of you, Gary Sandy, and Donna Mills together. What brought the three of you together at the restaurant? Were you in a show together? Thanks, Gary

A: The photo is with Gary Sandy and Lorna Luft and we were doing a production of Grease for the Kenley Players. I did several shows for John Kenley including Pippin, West Side Story and Grease. Thanks for writing and keep on Groovin’, Barry

Q: [by purpleladydi99] Okay, Now that I know the funniest thing, I meant to ask you what the most fun thing was you did this summer. Glad you got your plane. Diane.

A: By far the most interesting and enjoyable tithing I did this past summer was being treated to a one hour flight in a F18 Fighter jet with the Blue Angels. I spent an hour flying with a pilot out of Pensacola Florida. We went vertically up and down, did loops, broke the sound barrier, flew upside down and my pilot even let me fly the jet for over 15 minutes. What a thrill!

Q: [by gregtiderington] Hi Barry, I was wondering if you were ever going to be performing in Vancouver, B.C., Canada with your show "The Sound of Music"? Also I understand that your show "Jacob's Challenge" was an episode of the "Biblical Stories", but was that a TV series or a video release and was it a cartoon or were all of you acting in it in person?

A: We are not scheduled to play B.C. We may be adding Toronto to our itinerary - you can check the Sound Of Music schedule on the website. It would most likely be in May 2001. "Stories From the Bible" was a special series of television shows. I guested as Jacob in "Jacob’s Challenge". It was a filmed show, just like making a movie.
