SYNOPSIS : Mike Love tells the story of his legendary, raucous, and ultimately triumphant five-decade career as the front man of The Beach Boys, the most popular American band in history -- timed to coincide with the 50th anniversary of "Good Vibrations." The eBook edition includes 85 additional photos. As a founding member of The Beach Boys, Mike Love has spent an extraordinary fifty-five years, and counting, as the group's lead singer and one of its principal lyricists. The Beach Boys, from their California roots to their international fame, are a unique American story -- one of overnight success and age-defying longevity; of musical genius and reckless self-destruction; of spirituality, betrayal, and forgiveness -- and Love is the only band member to be part of it each and every step. His own story has never been fully told, of how a sheet-metal apprentice became the quintessential front man for America's most successful rock band, singing in more than 5,600 concerts in 26 countries. Love describes the stories behind his lyrics for pop classics such as "Good Vibrations," "California Girls," "Surfin' USA," and "Kokomo," while providing vivid portraits of the turbulent lives of his three gifted cousins, Brian, Dennis, and Carl Wilson. His partnership with Brian has few equals in American pop music, though Mike has carved out a legacy of his own -- he co-wrote the lyrics to eleven of the twelve original Beach Boy songs that were top 10 hits while providing the lead vocals on ten of them. The band's unprecedented durability also provides a glimpse into America's changing cultural mores over the past half century, while Love himself has experienced both the diabolical and the divine -- from Charles Manson's "family" threatening his life to Maharishi instilling it with peace. A husband, a father, and an avid environmentalist, Love has written a book that is as rich and layered as the Beach Boy harmonies themselves.

SYNOPSIS : Good Vibrations brings together scholars with a variety of expertise, from music to cultural studies to literature, to assess the full extent of the contributions to popular culture and popular music of one the most successful and influential pop bands of the twentieth century. The book covers the full fifty-year history of the Beach Boys’ music, from essays on some of the group’s best-known musicβ€”such as their hit single β€œGood Vibrations” β€”to their mythical unfinished masterpiece, Smile. Throughout, the book places special focus on the individual whose creative vision brought the whole enterprise to life, Brian Wilson, advancing our understanding of his gifts as a songwriter, arranger, and producer. The book joins a growing body of literature on the popular music of the 1960s, in general, and on Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys in particular. But Good Vibrations extends the investigation further and deeper than it has gone before, not only offering new understanding and insights into individual songs and albums, but also providing close examination of compositional techniques and reflections on the group’s place in American popular culture.

SYNOPSIS : Brian Wilson is one of the original Beach Boys members and is most well known for his genius in song writing. Brian, along with his two brothers Dennis and Carl, were teenagers in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s. They formed a band with their cousin Mike Love and high school friend Al Jardine, a band which would later take the nation by storm with their passionate surf songs and California dreams. Fueled by waves, girls, and sports cars, The Beach Boys became famous in the sixties for their upbeat pop and rock music. His life taken over by depression, alcohol, and drugs, Brian Wilson, the acclaimed genius of The Beach Boys, caved under pressure. He did not finish Smile and spent many years as a recluse. Eventually, a psychologist named Eugene Landy helped him recover, but then took advantage of his position and manipulated Brian until the early 1990’s. When Landy was kicked out, Brian was free to make a full recovery and went on to finish his Smile album as well as reunite with the surviving Beach Boys for a fiftieth reunion. This unofficial short biography recounts the good, bad and ugly of Wilson's life.
