In The Beach Boys with Glen photo posted below by Cowpoke, the two gentlemen in the black suits are...
...members of a short-lived Canadian band known as The Esquires.

I believe this photo was taken on February 21, 1965, at a Beach Boys concert held at Maple Leaf Gardens, Toronto ON, Canada. On the evening of the 21st, The Esquires were one of three opening acts for the Boys (info from The Beach Boys' Smiley Smile Forum). Glen Campbell was filling in for Brian Wilson's tour appearances at this time.

During The Esquires brief time in the spotlight, they became the opening act for The Rolling Stones, The Dave Clark Five and Roy Orbison as well as The Beach Boys.

To be confirmed: on setlist.fm.com, supposedly The Boys & Glen covered Roy Orbison's "Crying" with "Glen Campbell on lead vocals". Same date/month in 1965. [I sure would love to have this song performance by Glen verified. His set list with The Beach Boys--including his set list as a solo artist opening for The Boys--is either relatively undocumented or I just haven't found the right source for this info.]

Thanks so much for posting the photo, Cowpoke. It is historically important because photos of Glen on tour with The Beach Boys as a replacement for Wilson are not all that common. Also, The Esquires were one of the first Canadian bands to be signed on a major label, Capitol Records. Best of all, the original photograph has been carefully curated over the years and is now in a special photography collection with the University of Calgary.

There have been quite a lot of pictures of Glen while he was with The Beach Boys published on the internet. This one I hadn't seen before...

I know this is a very late comment, but the photo of Glen by the lightening in a bottle, is a promotional shot of Glen taken at the same time as the album cover shot of Glen on the light years album. You can see his outfit is exactly the same in both shots. The photo was in fact used in the UK programmes when Glen played over here in 1990 As I recall. I haven't seen the photo used anywhere else. It's a great shot of Glen and is almost like a fresh start for Glen after the bad years of the eighties.
