I am Brian Wilson

The genius behind the Beach Boys

'My life has been written about over and over again, and that's mostly okay with me. Other people can talk about my life. Sometimes they'll get it right and sometimes they'll get it wrong. For me, when I think back across my own life, there are so many things that are painful. Sometimes I don't like discussing them. Sometimes I don't even like remembering them. But as I get older, the shape of that pain has changed. Sometimes memories come back to me when I least expect them. Maybe that's the only way it works when you've lived the life I've lived: starting a band with my brothers that was managed by my father, watching my father become difficult and then impossible, watching myself become difficult and then impossible, watching women I loved come and go, watching children come into the world, watching my brothers get older, watching them pass out of the world. Some of those things shaped me. Others scarred me. Sometimes it was hard to tell the difference. When I watched my father fly into a rage and take swings at me and my brothers, was that shaping or scarring? When we watched him grow frustrated with his day job and take solace in music, was that shaping or scarring? Those are all memories but I can't get to them all at once. I've had a whole lifetime to take them in. Now I have a whole book to put them out there.'

Rezension
All of it in Wilson's idiosyncratic voice...what a story! Esquire
Portrait
He is one of popular music's most deeply revered figures, the main creative force behind some of the most cherished recordings in rock history. Brian Wilson is one of the most influential composers of the last century. Wilson's remarkable journey began in a modest Hawthorne, California home that was filled with music. He was barely out of his teens when he began to create some of the most beloved records ever... nine consecutive 'gold' albums that featured such classics as 'Surfer Girl,' 'In My Room,' 'I Get Around,' 'Don't Worry Baby,' 'Fun, Fun, Fun,' 'Help Me Rhonda' and 'California Girls'...just to name a handful of the more than two dozen Top 40 hits Brian co-wrote, arranged, produced and performed on with his family band, the Beach Boys.In 1966 as his artistic horizons expanded dramatically, Wilson produced records that forever changed the course of popular music. These included Pet Sounds; the emotional autobiography of its 23-year old 'auteur,' it is considered by many to be one of the greatest albums ever made.Brian's second studio masterpiece in 1966 was a track that he first cut during the Pet Sounds session, but it wasn't included on the album because it was not only unfinished but destined for a different kind of greatness. Good Vibrations became the Beach Boys' first million-selling worldwide number one. As he suffered through multiple nervous breakdowns, Wilson's contributions to the Beach Boys diminished and his erratic behavior led to tensions with the band. After years of treatment and recuperation, he began performing and recording consistently as a solo artist, being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and winning Grammy Awards for Brian Wilson Presents: Smile and The Smile Sessions. On the Beach Boys' 50th anniversary, Wilson briefly returned to record and perform with the group.
