Don't expect The Beach Boys to "Do It Again" any time soon, or at all.

After reuniting last year for a major tour, it's looking very unlikely that the harmonizers will hit the road again with original member Brian Wilson.

Wilson spoke to reporters backstage at the Grammy Awards after accepting the best historical album honor for "The Smile Sessions (Deluxe Edition Boxed Set)."

When asked if the Beach Boys will tour again, Wilson told reporters, "No, I don't think so. Doubt it." His comments follow the abrupt ending of the group's 50th anniversary reunion tour of 2012, when Mike Love, who legally controls the band's name and brand, contractually dismissed Wilson, along with Al Jardine and David Marks. Love can now tour with his own version of The Beach Boys -- and he will. He has tour dates lined up from April-September.

Wilson, the mastermind behind many of the group's best songs, also said backstage that his favorite Beach Boys track is "California Girls," followed by "God Only Knows."
