      Brian Wilson

      with Beat Root Revival
      I would have the musicians keep playing over and over again till the sound made sense. I worked overtime on that; I worked hours to get it right. If the sound didnt make any sense, then I wouldnt know what to do Id be lost! Its instinct that tells me. I have an instinct for music, or a feeling about it, and Ill have my feelings guide my hands. ________________________________________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. Indeed, it is no exaggeration to call Brian Wilson one of the most influential composers of the last century. Wilsons remarkable journey began in a modest Hawthorne, California home that was filled with music. His mom and dad both played piano, and as a young boy soprano, Brians vocal gift was immediately evident. He had also started singing harmoniesliterally in their roomwith his two younger brothers (Dennis and Carl). As a teen in the 1950s, he became obsessed with the harmonic blend of groups like the Four Freshmen, and then, in the early 1960s, inspired to combine multi-part vocal harmony with the rock rhythms of Chuck Berry, Brian found his place in the musical sun. 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, Dont 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. By 1966, though, glorious harmonies, ingenious hooks and four years of virtually uninterrupted creative growth and commercial success was no longer enough to satisfy Wilson, and as his artistic horizons expanded dramatically, he produced three records in that landmark year that forever changed the course of popular music.
