Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys' featuring Al Jardine at Biz Bash 2018 on April 19
Brian Wilson is one of American music's most deeply revered figures, the main creative force behind some of the most cherished recordings in rock history. It is no exaggeration to call Brian Wilson one of the most influential composers of the last century.
Born into a musical family, California native Wilson 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." These are just a handful of the more than two dozen Top 40 hits Brian co-wrote, arranged, produced and performed with his family band, the Beach Boys.
Celebrating the 40th anniversary of the classic Beach Boys' album Pet Sounds, in 2007 Wilson was honored with America's highest artistic tribute -- the Kennedy Center Honor. Wilson has been called the Mozart of Rock, the Gershwin of his generation. He continues to record music and tour the country.
