Musical genius BRIAN WILSON celebrates his 79th birthday today – 20 June 2021.
An iconic singer/songwriter, most famous, as we all know, for creating that vibrant Californian pop surf sound with his monumental harmonies band THE BEACH BOYS.
But back then in the glorious sixties the rivalry with The Beatles drove him paranoid.
He left the band to take a very long vacation in his bedroom. But in the late 80s, early
90s he returned and released several solo albums and played concerts now and then.
Music is in his veins and in his DNA. Here are three (extremely difficult to choose only three ) Brian Wilson compositions to celebrate the Beach Boy‘s 79th birthday…
– SURF’S UP –
(Brian Wilson solo – 1967)
– SLOOP JOHN B –

hard rockers AC/DC passed away he was asked to replace Scott. Holder said
