John Stamos' friendship with The Beach Boys dates back to the 1980s, when he was still working at General Hospital, but many fans became aware of the musical connection when the Kokomo singers played Uncle Jesses friends in several episodes of Full House. Thats how far back Stamos' friendship with Bob Saget, his co-star on the sitcom, has remained constant since his father died in January at the age of 65.
When Jesse Katsopolis sang the Beach Boys song Forever on Full House at their wedding in 1991, the lyrics sure struck a sob-worthy chord when John Stamos sang them as a tribute to Bob Saget.

Bob Saget, known as Full House's saccharine-sweet Danny Tanner as well as his raunchy stand-up comedy, passed away unexpectedly on January 9 after suffering a head injury. Which made it all the more heartbreaking to see excerpts from his and John Stamos time together on the ABC sitcom playing during the performance at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles.
John Stamos has been preserving his on-screen brother-in-laws' memories with stories and tributes, including a somewhat sappy eulogy at Bob Sagets' funeral, as well as co-hosting a star-studded memorial, which has since become Dirty Daddy: The Bob Saget Tribute, which is now available for Netflix subscribers. This really makes the Beach Boys song about trying to make someone laugh and fill their heart with joy all the more heartbreaking.
The actor of The Big Shot posted a re-post from a concert goer to his own Instagram that showed him playing drums and singing on stage with The Beach Boys as the crowd danced and sang to their hits.

John Stamos and Bob Saget both shared a passion for music, so much so that as Sagets' widow Kelly Rizzo prepared to move out of the shared house with her husband, she gifted the Uncle Jesse actor with a special memento, paying respect to all the times they had played music together.
It's so wonderful that so much love continues to be shown for Bob Sagets loved ones, and how they continue to wear sweatshirts in his honour. Proceeds from the Scleroderma Research Foundation were close to Sagets' hearts.
If you want to watch Bob Saget's memorial episode on Netflix (opens in new tab), there are also a slew of other movies and TV shows available to stream. This includes the Netflix spinoff Fuller House, or all eight seasons of Full House with an HBO Max subscription.
